  • Problem after Import with Impex! I need help.

    Hi there,

    i installed the vbulletin 3.6.4 yesterday and only registered the standard admin. so the database is empty.

    then i installed impex and connected to my woltlab burning board database.
    the import in the vbulletin admincp went good, but there is one problem:

    users, postings, threads, forums and all the other tables are wrong now!
    for example the original sentence in the original database(german):

    "Hier ist Platz für ausführliche Berichte"
    now it is:
    "Hier ist Platz für (ausführliche) Berichte"

    that are the informations from BOTH database..the original wbb and the vb:

    language: German (de-utf-8 )
    MySQL-charset: UTF-8 Unicode (utf-8 )
    charset / collation MySQL-connection: utf8_general_ci

    i dont know what to do now...?!
    please help me. :-)

    Ahh, Something important: When importing the data from the old forum (wbb), impEx seems to read them correctly, as the characters appear normally on impEx procedure. I guess it has problems trying to to 'copy' the data to the vBulletin tables.(i copied this from a user here in forum, wo has the same problem!)

      Try this. Edit impex/db_mysql.php and change this line:

      $query_id = $query_type(utf8_encode($query_string), $this->link_id);

      To this:

      $query_id = $query_type($query_string, $this->link_id);

      Then redo the import. Let me know if that works.

        @Steve Machol: Yes, it works, thanks!
        I posted my problem in the german vbulletin-board, too, a moderator gave me the same tip.
