    Thank you very much by your help.

    The server is OK: my forum PHPBB continuous working without problems.
    I have confirmed again the information of the DB.

    I will send support ticket.

    The only cause of the 'false, connect failed' error that I know of is that either the db info is wrong or the server is down.

    Fill out a support ticket at:

    Please include a complete description of the problem and be sure to include the login info to your Admin CP, cPanel and FTP in the 'Sensitive Data' field.

    Problem when import from PHPBB2 to vBulletin

    (they excuse my English badly).

    Hello to all.

    I have acquired vBulletin and I am new in these forums. I have
    installed without problems vBulletin in my server, but I have
    difficulty to transfer my forum PHPBB to vBulletin.

    I have installed ImpEx and when attempt to transfer (import) the
    PHPBB, gives an error message me:

    There seems to have been to problem with the database.

    ImpEx Database errormysql error: Link-ID == false, connect failed

    mysql error:

    mysql error to number: 0

    Date: Thursday 08th of February 2007 08:41:34 A.M.
    Database: np000439_vbulletin
    MySQL error:

    I have edited and verified all the data of ImpExConfig.php
    according to the intrucciones of the documentation, and I do not know
    where it is the error.

    The data are:
    Data base of PHPBB: np000439_foro1
    Data base of vBulletin: np000439_vbulletin

    Username: np000439
    Password: <removed>

    The ImpExConfig.php file I have edited to him of the
    following form:

    # For mysqli enter mysql
    $impexconfig['target']['databasetype'] = 'mysql';
    $impexconfig['target']['server'] = 'localhost';
    $impexconfig['target']['user'] = 'np000439';
    $impexconfig['target']['password'] = '<removed>';
    $impexconfig['target']['database'] = 'np000439_vbulletin';
    $impexconfig['target']['tableprefix'] = '';

    # If the system that is being imported from uses a database,
    # enter the details for it here and set 'sourceexists' to true.
    # If the source data is NOT stored in a database, set 'sourceexists' to false

    $impexconfig['sourceexists'] = true;

    # mysql / mssql
    $impexconfig['source']['databasetype'] = 'mysql';
    $impexconfig['source']['server'] = 'localhost';
    $impexconfig['source']['user'] = 'np000439';
    $impexconfig['source']['password'] = '<removed>';
    $impexconfig['source']['database'] = 'np000439_foro1';
    $impexconfig['source']['tableprefix'] = '';

    I was decided by vBulletin because it is a great system of
    forums, and because it offered security to me to concern all the data
    of my PHPBB without great losses.

    My PHPBB is not a great forum, it has just a short time working and it
    contains about 500 users (not all assets) and 7,500 messages. But I
    would not like to lose the messages and data of my users.

    Very I will be been thankful if somebody has the amiability to help me
    to solve my problem. I have often reviewed the documentation and the
    data of the forums and server, and I really do not know that it is
    what I have done badly.

    Thank you very much to all.
