    You have to post your own thread with the relevant details so I know which system you're talking about at least :

    You need to use the full path, you can get that from ssh'ing to the server and typing "pwd" in the dir with the attachments, or creating a php file with this in it and browsing to it :

    PHP Code:
    <?
    echo getcwd();
    ?>

    If I shorten the path, then it runs but fails??

    I have tested this and learn that you need to copy all the attachments from the source site to your server and then put the absolute path of that folder
    Correct.

    ImpEx needs attachments in a local folder that PHP has read access too.

    99% of the time its PHP and permissions, if the path is correct that's where ImpEx is looking, if the permissions won't allow the file to be read, that's a server issue not ImpEx.

    Attachment import worked after I had moved the attachments from

    /home/httpd/vhosts/exported-forum.net/subdomains/forum/httpdocs/attach

    to

    /home/httpd/vhosts/imported-forum.net/subdomains/forum/httpdocs/attach

    i. e. I had to move them from the exported site (forum) to a directory within the site of the board into which I imported them.

    Both are running on the same server. Safe mode is off. Maybe basedir restriction?

    Thanks. I will try once more. If it fails I will take screenshots and submit a ticket.

    Another thing I noticed is that when I was associating the usernames, it displayed "Array" next to the user id instead of the nicknames. The import itself worked, though.
