    Import phpBB3 db to vB forum

    I have a live and fully working vB 3.7 install and a old database from a dead phpbb3 install with about 2000 threads.

    I have created a forum in my vB install called Archive. I'd like to import all the phpbb3 threads into that forum.

    Is it possible with Impex?

    I might have some duplicate members. How is the best way to do this?

    You can do the import then move the threads once they are imported via the admincp, ImpEx will merge the duplicate users during the user module if you instruct it to.
    I wrote ImpEx.
