    Ok i solved the problem.

    For those wich maybe have this problem with database's characters/encoding during the import, you can use advanced options of ImpExConfig.php :

    l.69 : source database

    $impexconfig['target']['charset'] = '';
    changing in
    $impexconfig['target']['charset'] = 'ISO-8859-1';


    l.73 : target database

    $impexconfig['source']['charset'] = '';
    $impexconfig['source']['charset'] = 'ISO-8859-1';

    And all is OK, the import is not make in utf-8 characters.

    Import punbb 1.2.1 FR > vbulletin 3.6.x


    I try to convert my actual board (punbb 1.2.10 FR) on vbulletin 3.6.5.
    I use Impex to migrate all my board.

    All works fine, there is no problem with Impex Tools, migration of users, posts, threads and forum are OK.

    The problem i have is that Impex convert my ISO-8859-1 datas to UTF-8 during the import.

    I tried to use some utf8_decode() php function to keep iso-8859-1 data but no way, i can't make an import with ISO date in vbulletin tables.
    Tried to add too AddDefaultCharset UTF-8 on .htaccess when i decide to keep utf-8 data and use charset of html page to have correct display for my users, but no way too.
    Tried to iconv a mysql dump too but i think that is maybe too much to only migrate board ? :-)

    Can you help me ?

    Thx u very much !
