  • phpbb2 to vbulletin 3.0.6

    ok... here's my problem... i was using phpnuke which the forum system uses phpbb2.... the thing is.... the importers you have that i've seen only support "phpbb2" forums...im not sure if this importer will work for my nukes phpbb but i dont want to try it then screw something up... so i was wondering if anyone has any ideas as to what i should do.... or if there's anyonew who does have a phpnuke site that has successfully transfered their forum to vbulletin with no problem.... thanks.

    oh and when i try running the phpbb importer i get this error

    Warning: main(./../admin/bbimport.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/y4hoo/public_html/importers/bbimport_phpbb2.php on line 4

    i dont get it

    php nuke runs a modified version of phpBB forum so you may get errors, my advice is try installing a full version of phpBB 2.0.11 and try restoring your database from the nuke one to the phpBB 2.0.11 then when you want to transfer over to vBulletin, set up for it to get all the data from the database and try that.
