  • Lost private messages for original user

    I imported from phpbb3 to the latest vbulletin.

    Everything seems to have gone without a hitch except for my Admin user (Me).

    This was the original user on the old forums and on the new vbulletin install.

    I merged the users (The imported user was named imported_GoodOmens) with the vbulletin GoodOmens and the private messages transferred over.

    However after sending my first private message they all disappeared. Under "Private Message Statistics" I can see a user has my exact private message count but clicking on "Show Users" results in "No Users Matched Your Query".

    I have a feeling they got relisted under the old merged userid? Any way to change this?

    I don't think any other users were impacted since there were no other duplicate user names.

      Did you have the PM's before the merge and were the posts assigned to the user.

        I did ... I think things got messed up when I tried to sync the posts before I switched the site live.

        I decided to go from scratch, name my original vbulletin Admin different from the phpbb3 Admin (And promote the phpbb3 admin as a super admin in config.php) and re-import everything.

        I've go everything running just fine now. Couldn't get Avatars to port over for some reason but that is not a big deal. Thanks for the reply.

          Good to know

          99% of the time the avatars is a full path or PHP permissions issue.
