  • Invalid ImpExData object, skipping. Failed on : userid

    Hi, we want to import from vb 3.0.7 to vb 3.6.4.
    ImpEx version is 1.78

    During importing posts the error occurs:
    Invalid ImpExData object, skipping. Failed on : userid

    During importing private messages:
    Invalid ImpExData object, skipping. Failed on :



    Also the number of the imported data differs from source-board statistics / impex / target-board statistics

    impex says:
    Import user: 10441 failed: 0
    Import thread: 6406 failed: 0
    Import post: 19348 failed: 949

    target-board statistics:
    threads: 6.262, posts: 19.364, users: 10.002

    source-board statistics
    threads: 5.843, posts: 19.439, users: 10.441

    I'm also wondering how to move the users in the "impex groups" into the real target groups. I can't choose all available gorups as target, only "registered users", "moderators", "banned users" and all the "impex groups"
    So it is impossible to move the admin users or the "ImpEx -Users Awaiting Email Confirmation" into the right group

    Are you importing into an empty 3.6.4 forum?

    If so then you should definately be upgrading and not importing.

      No we don't import into an fresh install.

      We wanted to extend the forum with vbadvanced and other 3rdparty things.
      Because we didn't want to do this with the live forum which version is 3.0.7
      we installed vb 3.6.4 on a new Server and imported the data from 3.0.7
      Then we installed all the extensions, made our customization and so on and now we want to import the data from the live forum again so we could switch to the new server later on.
      I know that differential Imports aren't supported, i read the whole manual,
      so I delete all existing forums and when importing the users i enabled email address matching. I thought this would be ok

        I recommend you upgrade your existing forum to 3.6.4 and then just copy over the modified files. There's really no need to import.

          Thanks for your suggestion but that won't solve the problem.
