  • Question about going from phpbb to vbulletin

    Hello there everyone, I am new to vbulletin (just installed it tonight) and right now I am currently running phpbb for my forums. I want to try and re-create my site with some of the mods I am currently running to the new site, but am wondering if I should import the database THEN install mods or install mods and THEN import the database. I really would prefer to mod my site first, make sure it's running how I want, then transfer the DB and go live.

    Is this advisable or even possible? Any help is greatly appreciated by this vbulletin "noob"

    Do the import first before doing anything else. After everything is imported correctly, then start on your customizations.
