    View the source of any impex page and there should be a PWD at the bottom, from that you can usually figure out the other paths.

    Code:
    <!-- PWD /var/www/localhost/htdocs-->

    I've tried that, using the path info shown by my FTP program (e.g., "/forums/discus/messages"), but I got the same "Not OK" messages either way.

    I don't have SSH access, either, so I can't use PWD.

    Give the full paths to the discus dir's opposed to the relative ones just to be double sure impex can get to them.

  • Can't import from Discus 4.00.9 Pro using text files (no DB)

    I'm using ImpEx 1.91 to import from Discus 4.00.9 Pro that was originally setup to use text file storage instead of MySQL. When I run module 001 of the import process, it fails on the board-topics.html and users.txt paths. The folders in question are siblings of the impex folder, so the paths I'm using are "../discus/messages" and "../discus_admin_[numbers]".

    If it matters, I only have the folders/files for the Discus board; the shared host I'm running this on never actually had Discus installed on it.

    [Edit: I'm installing to vBulletin 3.7.4 PL1 using PHP 5 and MySQL 5 (with mysqli option). Shared hosting through 1&1.]

    Thanks.
