    Sharkman: do you have any suggestions for my import. I have a CS 2007 import to do as well. But I don't know much about this stuff.

    I am looking to migrate from Community Server .... any words of wisdom ?
    The CS site we have was archived by the webmaster .. he will send us the archive.
    The site we have currently is with GoDaddy (probably just MySQL).
    Will I have to upload the MS SQL to GoDaddy ... get a temporary MS SQL DB ... then run Impex on the GoDaddy site with vB on MySQL with a SQL connection to the CS database ?

    All help appreciated.

    Best contact me via the support system in the members area and I'll see what I can do.

    We spent $3,500 on a license and 6 months of developer work to get the new site launched and I accomplished more in just a day with $500 of vB licenses and skins. What a piece of crap this system is.

    Okay, thanks. As far as getting CS2007 converted; were you able to get a database to work from for an importer?

    Is there support for CS 2007 yet?

    Doesn't take me long at all, I will be updating this one now. It all depends on the version changes.

    The standard back up would be best due to the MSSQL server I test and dev on, the best way is to create the back up archive it then host it some where and start a support ticket here in the members area, ask for me and send the link or download details to it.

    Sure, I'm happy to send you a copy of the test database. If you have SQL Litespeed, the backup file is about 1.5GB, otherwise it's probably around 2GB for a standard backup. What's the best way to get that to you?

    I can also send the version of the communityserver package that I've modified, and that's now working, if you're interested. If you're not familiar with CS, some of the queries are a little messy....

    I will keep plugging away at it myself while you have a look at it. Any suggestions you might have on the HTML questions I posted earlier would be especially helpful.

    The importer was written for 2.0 as displayed by the importer. With out access to newer versions or test data I can't update the importer.

    The best way I could help is if you are willing to share a copy of the database I could update the importer to the 2007/3.0 version if that is the latest.
