    which one to use once we run the Import Users module in IMPEX

    b) path to Vbulletin avatar folder (images/avatars)

    I have tryed most of them

    /public_html/old_site/images/fbfiles/avatars

    no images are being transferred from old forum

    Use the full and complete path to the directory containing your backup. On Unix/Linux systems you can find the complete path name by telnetting or sshing into your server, going to that directory and typing:

    pwd

          I am sorry but not working! I found the path by a php script, everything is 777. PHPBB2X to latest vbulletin 3.7.2. Unbelieveble, i tried the very same setup a couple of months ago, with older impex and vbulletin, and IT WORKED. and now... none.

          storage type is file system, not database, everything is cool incredible. Also checked source database, everything is fine, "user_avatar" field has data, storage is ok, all is great. It can be a server issue? not allowing to copy things around "by itself"?

            If you are using the correct path, then I do not see how this could happen.

            Fill out a support ticket at:

            http://members.vbulletin.com/members...ontactform.php

            Please include a complete description of the problem and be sure to include the login info to your Admin CP, phpMyAdmin and FTP in the 'Sensitive Data' field.
