    Trouble converting fireboard to vbulletin

    Hi, I'm trying to convert fireboard 1.0.4 to the latest vbulletin (after installing vbulleting first) but when I click "check and update databse" most of them succeed, but this is what I get.

    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 references 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 original vB userid.

    Does this have something to do with community builder? I haven't installed the Joomla duo sync yet

      Does Fireboard even use a MySQL database?

        That's what the importer expects and supports.

        That it connected and searched is a good sign, try removing/changing the table prefix.
        I wrote ImpEx.
