  • Impex cannot connect to the destination database?

    I set up a testvb for checking out importing from phpbb. This is what I get when I clicked the Import/Export function in Admincp.

    Database error in vBulletin:ImpEx Target 3.0.7:

    Invalid SQL: DROP TABLE IF EXISTS vbfields
    mysql error: Access denied for user: '[email protected]' to database 'cebfvb2005'

    mysql error number: 1044

    Username: xxxxx
    IP Address:
    This is confusing me. Because I did the installation of the board using the exact same username and password to the database. I didn't change that in the config.ini.php of Impex because it said not to if the information is the same as in \includes\config.php.

    I'll be buying another license after I figure out how to import this.

    Thank you.

    Strange. This defintely appears to be a permission problem. Fill out a support ticket at:

    Be sure to include the login info to your Admin CP, phpMyAdmin and FTP.
