  • Invision To Vbulletin

    ok I just bought vbulletin yesterday night and I posted a help thread in the main vbulletin forum but no one seems to understand how to solve this problem , I would really like someone who is well knowledgeable in vbulletin to help me.

    Well first of all I have sucessfully installed vbulletin and next I want to transfer my old data/mysql DB from my invision 2.0.4 forum to Vbulletin 3.0.8 but I can't seem to do that without a converter which was like something that converted my phpbb DB to the INvison data last time.

    Right now a guy introduced me something called impex and so I uploaded it into my forums folder and the next step is pretty confusing how do I even use it? I read many post but can't seem to understand the next step , if anyone would help me, I would really appreciate it since this is something really hard I encounter with vbulletin.

        Yeah ok its was great but in dreamweaver when i edit it those things seems to be in yellow text before the <?php tag so I suppose the stuff won't work even after I fill up the infomation inside..?

            The problem is , I can't get my invision DB into my Vbulletin DB , I encounter loads of **** errors and also The impexconfig file inside has this * icon which allows the entire script to be unuse so if its yellow will it still work?

                  This means the db info in your ImpExConfig,php file is wrong. Please view the online instructions here:

                  http://www.vbulletin.com/docs/html/impex

                  Is the IPB database on the same server as your vB? If not, you may not have permission to access the IPB database remotely. In that case you will need to backup and restore the IPB db on your vB server.

                      Then the info in ImpExConfig.php is wrong - most likely the source info.

                          You specificly show in your image that your source is a mysql database, you have the setting set to false, change that to true.

                            A source database was not entered in ImpExConfig.php

                            I got that error when I change it to true.
