    This means PHP is using the same connection for both databases, for a work around change this in your ImpExConfig.

    PHP Code:

    mysql error: Table '' doesn't exist

    You are using the wrong db info in your ImpExConfig.php file. You need to check and fix this info.

    Errors Importing From phpBB

    Hi, my phpBB forum is a phpBB3 Beta 5. I installed ImPEX and its showing in the AdminCP. Heres the iImpExConfig.php file:

    # TARGET - The target is the vBulletin database (where the  data is going to)
    $impexconfig['target']['server']        = 'localhost';
    $impexconfig['target']['user']            = 'hazard_Rowan';
    $impexconfig['target']['password']        = 'THECORRECTPASSWORDISHERE';
    $impexconfig['target']['database']        = 'hazard_vbulletin';
    $impexconfig['target']['tableprefix']    = 'vbhazard_';
    # 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;
    # SOURCE - The source is the old forum database (where the  data is coming from)
    # mysql / mssql
    $impexconfig['source']['databasetype']    = 'mysql';  // mysql OR mssql
    $impexconfig['source']['server']        = 'localhost';
    $impexconfig['source']['user']            = 'hazard_Rowan';
    $impexconfig['source']['password']        = 'THECORRECTPASSWORDISHERE';
    $impexconfig['source']['database']        = 'hazard_hazardforum';
    $impexconfig['source']['tableprefix']   = 'phpbb_';
    When I go into Import > Import, select:
    Source Format: phpBB3
    Version To Export: vBulletin 3.6.5

    Begin Import....

    When I do "Check and update database" everything shows green.
    When I do "Associate Users" I leave them all empty as they will just be straight transfered over.
    When I do "Import Usergroup" everything shows green.
    When I do "Import User" everything shows green.

    Now, when I do "Import Forum", I get this:

    ImpEx Database errormysql error: Invalid SQL: SELECT importcategoryid FROM forum WHERE importcategoryid=50
    mysql error: Table '' doesn't exist
    mysql error number: 1146
    Date: Monday 07th of May 2007 08:13:52 AM
    Database: hazard_vbulletin
    MySQL error:
    How do I fix this? Been trying to fix it all day.

    Looking forward to reply,
