  • phpBB 3.0.4 to vB 3.8.x problem

    So I am trying to convert the database from my phpbb to vb, but I keep getting this error:
    Connection to source server failed. Check username and password.

    I copied the connection details directly from a currently working phpBB board config file to the Impex config file. No matter what I do...this is really irrating. I would have thought this would have been easier transition

    You need to have the source db (phpBB) n the same server as vB. Then as long as your source db info is correct, you will not get that error.
