  • Blank White Screen

    I feel like I'm back in the old Windoze BSD days, lol.
    When I click on Import/Export, all I get is a BWS (blank white screen).

    Here is my ImpExConfig.php:

    [ 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 = "xxx"
    targetpassword = "xxx"
    targetdatabase = vbgolfconn
    targettableprefix = phpBB2Plus

    [ 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 = "sameasabove"
    sourcepassword = "sameasabove"
    sourcedatabase = vbgolfconn
    sourcetableprefix = phpBB2Plus

    Can you see where I went wrong?

    The most likely cause of this problem is that you did not upload the Impex files correctly. Reupload the vB Impex files and make sure you upload these in ASCII format and that you overwrite the ones on the server.

      Your source and target database details are the same. The source database should your phpBB2Plus and the target will be your vBulletin database.

          OK, I changed the impex config file to this:

          [ 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 = "xxx"
          targetpassword = "xxx"
          targetdatabase = vbgolfconn (new database)
          targettableprefix = vBtest (prefix for new database)

          [ 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 = "xxx"
          sourcepassword = "xxx"
          sourcedatabase = golfconnection (old database)
          sourcetableprefix = phpBB2Plus (old database prefix)

          This didn't help, still getting the BWS. I wonder of the 'local host' thing might be causing it.

            Did you reupload the Impex files?

              Oh crap, forgot all about that part. Sorry . . .
              Back in a few.

              The first time. I only upload the phpBB2 folder.

                I went back re-uploaded. This time I included phpBB, textfile, VB3 and xoops thinking there may be somethning in those others that may be needed.

                Now when I try it, I get this error message:

                Database error in vBulletin:ImpEx Target 3.0.7:
                Link-ID == false, connect failed
                mysql error:

                  The 'false, connect failed' error means that either the source or target db info in ImpExConfig.php is incorrect.

                    The database names are correct. I have attached a screenshot of the database file column from my golfconn database. I want to export the database from my phpBB2Plus board, and import it to my new vBtest board.

                    Shouldn't the export prefixes be: phpBB2Plus

                      Some of that info is wrong, otherwise you would not get this error. Is the phpBB database on the same server as vB?

                          To get this error your ImpExConfig and includes/config.php data must be diffrent some how.
                          I wrote ImpEx.

                            From the config.php file in my vBtest/includes folder:

                            // ****** DATABASE SERVER NAME ******
                            // This is the hostname or IP address of the database server.
                            // It is in the format HOST:PORT. If no PORT is specified, 3306 is used.
                            // If you are unsure of what to put here, leave it at the default value.
                            $servername = 'mysql10.powweb.com';
                            // ****** DATABASE USERNAME & PASSWORD ******
                            // This is the username and password you use to access MySQL.
                            // These must be obtained through your webhost.
                            $dbusername = xxx;
                            $dbpassword = xxx;
                            // ****** DATABASE NAME ******
                            // This is the name of the database where your vBulletin will be located.
                            // This must be created by your webhost.
                            $dbname = 'vbgolfconn';

                            From the impex/ImpExConfig.php file:

                            [ Target Database ]

                              The target server is where the data is going to, i.e. the same as vBulletin.

                              Though if you are going across diffrent servers you must have access permissions to do that.
