  • phpBB 2 -> vBulletin - step 1

    ImpEx will now Alter the tables in the vB database to include import id numbers.This is needed during the import process for maintaining refrences between the tables during an import.If you have large tables (i.e. lots of posts) this can take some time.They will also be left after the import if you need to link back to the origional vB userid.

    now i was just wondering if there were any bugs around this part of the script, the phpbb installation im trying to port over is a very standard installation... all of the tables have phpbb_ as the prefix.

    thanks for any help in advance,

    The bit of the page carrying on from that quote at the end most likely says something about if all the tables are not found that you are missing the "phpbb_" prefix from your ImpExConfig ?

        On a clean import you can ignore that stage, it's left in from legacy systems.
