  • Impex Problems

    I am having problems getting Impex to run to convert a PhpBB 2.0.13 fourm to vBulletin.

    I get this error -
    Database error in vBulletin:ImpEx Target 3.0.7:

    Invalid SQL: SELECT title, data FROM datastore WHERE title = 'ImpExSession'
    mysql error: Table 'cruise8_vbulletin.datastore' doesn't exist

    mysql error number: 1146

    I think my problem is one of simple syntax in the ImpExConfig.php file. This is
    the entry for the Target...
    targetdatabasetype = mysql
    targetserver = localhost
    targetuser = cruise8_import
    targetpassword = Password
    targetdatabase = cruise8_vbulletin
    targettableprefix =

    ...for the source...

    sourcedatabasetype = mysql
    sourceserver = localhost
    sourceuser = cruise8_import
    sourcepassword = Password
    sourcedatabase = cruise8_phpbb1
    sourcetableprefix =

    I have attached a screen print of my Cpanel My SQL page. Can someone who is a font of such wisdom please check that the syntax above squares with this attachement as this is my theory as to the source of my problem.

    Any other ideas would be appreciated...

    Did you install vBulletin with a table prefix?

      My ignorance is such that I don't understand this question!

      I followed the instructions to the best of my ability

        As per your support ticket, you were using the wrong targettableprefix.
