    we're trying to import the stuff to vbulletin 3.5.2 with the phpBB importer and the changing prefix trick - but there seems to be a problem with old user/group relations.

    ImpEx Database errormysql error: Invalid SQL:
    SELECT * FROM nuke_user_group
    WHERE user_id = 1
    ORDER BY group_id

    mysql error: Table 'shadows_doom.nuke_user_group' doesn't exist

    mysql error number: 1146

    the new user -> group relationship seems quite different to the old one.
    tried the old phpBB 1.XX importer too .. he works for users / usergroups and forums but i don't get
    a) all subforums - only main categories and
    b) no single thread / post assigned due to the subcategories don't exist

    anyway to help me out of this? i don't want to lose all old data

    You can't go from Nuke to vB directly, I recently did migrate from nuke to vB, the forums only so far.

    First you have to migrate from nuke to standard phpBB and then from phpBB to vB.
    There is a script to do this on the phpBB site which I used:

    This works OK, if you have a lot of data though you might have to increase your excution times in php.ini for the script to finish properly.

    Once you got it in phpBB you can go vB. Worked OK for me.
