  • Whats wrong here can someone help please

    Hi all,

    Manage to successfully install vBulletin and I'm now at version 3.0.7.

    What would like to do is upgrade my current forums that are in SMF 1.0.2 to vBulletin.

    However, I'm running into a few problems

    The error message I keep getting is the following:

    Invalid SQL: SELECT title, data FROM datastore WHERE title = 'ImpExSession'
    mysql error: Table 'mulimpro.datastore' doesn't exist

    mysql error number: 1146

    When I'm running the Import/Export utility from the Admin Control Panel.

    My ImpExConfig Scipt has the following values:

    [ Target Database ]
    ; The following settings allow ImpEx to connect to the vBulletin 3
    ; database into which you will be importing data.

    targetdatabasetype = mysql
    targetserver = localhost
    targetuser = mulimpro
    targetpassword = *******
    targetdatabase = mulimpro
    targettableprefix =

    [ Source Database ]
    ; If the system that is being imported from uses a database,
    ; enter the details for it here and set 'sourceexists' to TRUE.
    ; If the source data is NOT stored in a database, set 'sourceexists' to FALSE

    sourceexists = true

    ; mysql OR mssql
    sourcedatabasetype = mysql
    sourceserver = localhost
    sourceuser = mulimpro
    sourcepassword = *******
    sourcedatabase = mulimpro
    sourcetableprefix = smf_

    Whats going wrong????

    Anyone please.

    Kind regards,

    Run this script to restore your datastore table:

      Thanks for that but I was missing the extension to vb3 in the targettableprefix = vb3

      Installed the board and now just testing it.

      From SMF to vBulletin in one day and thats with all the users, threads migrated as well.

      A truly wonderful product.

      Pass on my thanks to the team.
