  • Import -> phpBB 2.0.17 to vBB vBulletin 3.6.8 Patch Level 2

    After the import I seem to have a few problems. My phpBB2 forum is quite large.

    I used impex from the download area and most things imported.

    However I have allot of missing threads/posts in certain areas. It seems those forums have been totally missed from the importing.

    I have done the update counters Rebuild Thread Information and Rebuild Forum Information.

    I also appear to have duplicate forums in the forum manager.
    The whole master name and forums within it are all duplicated.

    I did run the...
    Remove duplicate forums/threads/posts.

    But it never picked them up.

    Any help appreciated.

    I'm guessing one of the modules was re-run or refreshed mid import and the missing threads and because of the default display age cut off ?
    I wrote ImpEx.

      OK - how can I dump all the imported data to start over? I've tried the options in the importer under Database cleanup & restart


      default display age cut off ?
      Can you please explain more about this?

      I have also attached a picture to show what I am meaning by forums and their groups doubling. This happens to almost all the groups and forums.

        OK I have spotted something I foolishly never spotted before :|

        The missing posts are on the duplicate forums only.

        I just need to know how I can easily remove all the dups now please?

          Looks like you have run the forum module twice, or run it then removed the import ids, and run it again.

          You can remove the duplicate via the forum manager.
