  • Import available from Dotnetbb ?

    Hi

    Can anybody tell me is it possible to import data/forums/users etc from:

    http://www.dotnetbb.com/

    To Vbulletin.

    And if so any guidance on procedures or whether somebody is available to do this and at what cost.

    Thanks

    It depends on what version of dotnet you are running and if it's MSSQL or a MySQL database, as you'll need MSSQL and MySQL support in PHP to do an import from MSSQL.

      Hi Jerry

      Version details : v2.42EC SP3

      I'll find out whether it's MS version or MySQL shortly.

      Can you give me a for dummies translation of this last bit:

      "you'll need MSSQL and MySQL support in PHP to do an import from MSSQL. "

      Thanks

        dot net bbs can run on a few different types of database, ImpEx supports importing from MSSQL and MySQL, though only support exporting to MySQL as that is the only database type that vBulletin uses.

        As soon as we have the answer for the dotnet source, then we can deal with the second bit

          Hi Jerry

          Sorry for the delay it appears their current forum is running on MSSQL and we want to transfer their users/threads etc to vbulletin.

          Is that bad news?

            It will be fine, it just means that you need MSSQL support in PHP so ImpEx can connect to the dotnet database.

            http://www.php.net/mssql

            and MySQL (which the majority do) to be able to write out to a vBulletin MySQL database.
