    i've installed vbulletin 3.8.1 on localhost, i've created 2 databases (1 for vbulletin and 1 for phpbb 3.0.4) and i've tried to import phpbb db to vbulletin. and from the first module i'm receive this error:

    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.

    Maybe this will help others with a similiar situation.

    3.0.4 phpbb with 160,000 posts imported via Impex to 3.8.1

    After importing posts I would import private messages, but then all the posts disappeared. Did this twice with same outcome. There was no error message, they just disappeared.

    So I just imported posts and skipped importing PM's and it worked fine.

    *Note* I've read that Phpbb 3.x imports will not import member passwords. Members have to be emailed to reset passwords. That's a character of Phpbb 3.x, not impex. For that reason I am going to transfer all my phpbb 2.x boards to VB instead of updating to phpbb 3.x, so I don't have to go through that mess with members.

    Yes, that version is supported.

    What is the reported error from ImpEx during the import ?

    started a topic Impex for phpbb 3.0.4

    Impex for phpbb 3.0.4

    Does Impex work for phpbb 3.0.4?
    It's not importing threads. I've done several phpbb 2.x impex imports with no problems.
