  • vb3.89 to vb 3.83 - importing users only into a different forum

    Hi

    I am thinking about importing only username, password, e-mail address and usergroup from a vbulletin version 3.80 to an another vbulletin installation with version 3.83

    Both installations have different content, in 99% of the cases different users and a differnt url.

    I do not want to import threads/postings and risking with that to override thread IDs etc. of the target forum.

    How can I do this with Impex?

    Thanks in advance

    Yes you can use Impex to import only the usergroups and users. This won't affect the threadids at all.

      I have imported all content from a fireboard forum with success and I want to import users from another vbulletin forum (381) in the same database.
      Unfortunately impex is still looking to fireboard database and not to the new vb database. I have updated impex config file and is connecting with success to the new database.

      Can you make any suggestions on how to import from vb only the users?
      Apparently somewhere is stored the info that import is going to be form firefox and I am not asked for customer number as I am with first use.

      I just needed to remove import ID's

        Another problem I am stuck on:
        I have selected vb-36 from where to import (even if I import from 381) but is not working. I have tried with vb3 too and is not working.
        After check and update I receive failure even if it completing the task.
        It said Completed on all lines and finish with
        "Failed Check database permissions and connection, or table prefix to ensure its correct"
        I push Complete buton and I get back to initial screen where I got 1 failure for first line.
