  • Import issue...two different table prefixes?

    Hello - I have a friend who wants to go to VB from phpBB

    I can dump his database and import fine but when I go into the database it has two different prefixes

    1 is mybb_ and the second is phpbb_

    I go to run the ImpEx and get the user.id not found when I run the modules

    When I choose to import MyBB it sees the tables fine BUT doesn't import the phpbb_ prefixed tables?

    Should I just rename them all as phpbb_ prefix or will that make this issue worse??


    Does the Import config allow two seperate table prefixes in the source database arguments???

    No it doesn't. Are these from the same BB system? If so I do not undertand how any system could handle two different table prefixes.

      Same here, unless it's a multi import then they should do one, finalise it then move on to the second.
      I wrote ImpEx.
