  • phpbb_ set and still getting red tables

    Code:
    [B]Altering tables[/B]
    
    ImpEx will now Alter the tables in the vB database to include import id numbers.This is needed during the import process for maintaining refrences between the tables during an import.If you have large tables (i.e. lots of posts) this can take some time.They will also be left after the import if you need to link back to the origional vB userid.

      It looks like you have the info reversed. The 'target' db is your vB and the 'source' is your phpBB.

        I don't mean to be dense, but I don't understand what change you are suggesting.


        I set $impexconfig['target']['tableprefix'] = 'phpbb_'; which didn't help.

            I recognize that I'm missing something. I just don't know what. Here's what I understand from your post. Unfortunately I set these options and there is no change in behavior.

            $impexconfig['target']['databasetype'] = 'mysql';
            $impexconfig['target']['server'] = 'localhost';
            $impexconfig['target']['user'] = 'root';
            $impexconfig['target']['password'] = 'xxxxx';
            $impexconfig['target']['database'] = 'main VB db name;
            $impexconfig['target']['tableprefix'] = '';
            $impexconfig['source']['databasetype'] = 'mysql';
            $impexconfig['source']['server'] = 'localhost';
            $impexconfig['source']['user'] = 'root';
            $impexconfig['source']['password'] = 'xxxxxxxx';
            $impexconfig['source']['database'] = 'phpb db';
            $impexconfig['source']['tableprefix'] = 'phpbb_';
            The 'vbulletin_forum' entry below was set incorrectly and I've corrected it now. but the error message that is appearing makes me think modifying it in impexconfig.php wasn't enough.

              I don't see 'vbulletin_forum' anywhere in your ImpExConfig.php file. You need to post the real info.

              Also please read the online Impex import instructions here:

                'vbulletin_forum' was a mistaken entry in the target section. As you see, I've corrected it below.

                    also, I installed vb and impex with the manual. I've been over the relevant sections several times. I'm sure I'm missing something, I just can't work out what.

                      As they say, the error was between the keyboard and the monitor... I had two copies of the impex directory on my webserver and I was making the edits to the impexconfig.php in the wrong one...

                      I'm sorry to waste your time.

                          Ok, thanks to your patience all this is sorted out and I was able to complete the migration very quickly with no issues. If you'd like to see the site you can click my profile for a link.

                          The VB software is so infinitely better than phpBB its not even funny. I'm sure its possible to host a megaboard off phpBB, but with all the great admin features and user features in VB, why would you want to?
