  • the latest ImpEx chokes

    ok this is what i get. i have the prefix "phpbb_" also i am running the latest 3.7.x and when i try to import the forums from phpbb2 i get this.... (how can this be fixed)

    Altering tables

    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.

    Possibly custom tables or incorrect prefix :

    phpbb_attachments NOT found.
    phpbb_attachments_desc NOT found.

    If you have all red tables, i.e. none correct this could possible be your table prefix :

            That is a valid fail meaning that you don't have those tables so there are no attachments to imports.
