  • OK, how do I move from PHPBB to VB?

    I have had the main forum on for a long time, but then I moved host, and made it on the sub domain I got VB recently and had it installed on the main directory, and now somone said I can import the phpBB, but I have no idea how... Some users have already created new accounts, but not everyone. Oh and the PHPBB admin area is not working right now, but I have the database downloaded from when I moved servers. Can I use that database?

    As long as the phpBB database is on the same server as vB then you should be able to use Impex to import it.

    Please read the online Impex import instructions here:

    Also please view the 'After the Import' instructions here:
