  • [problem] phpBB 3.0.4 to vB 3.8

    Hello, i have a problem converting phpbb 3.0.4 to vb 3.8.

    When i press on import in the admincp it says:

    ImpEx Database errormysql error: Link-ID == false, connect failed

    mysql error:

    mysql error number: 0

    Date: Tuesday 27th 2009f January 2009 08:42:23 PM
    Database: 26093test
    MySQL error:

    or it says:

    Connection to source server failed. Check username and password.

    I checked and the username and password are good.

    What's going on?

      Good that the topic ain't closed yet. Everything did go well except for when i look at the members list, you see there only 1 members. The first account that was made on installation?

      Please advice!!

        Did you rebuild your counters after running impex?
        Anybody who says "it can't be done" will usually be interrupted by somebody who is already doing it.
