  • Some Problems While Importing!

    Hi there

    I'm facing lots of problem while converting phpBB 3,0,4 to vB 3,8,3, .

    1. While importing users, I got 50 failed items, I checked some of my users and it seems everything is perfect, but I'm not sure!
    How can I find out what caused those failed items? Is it important to know or not?

    2. I couldn't import attachments and avatars! I'm using Plesk panel, What is the full path of attachments on Plesk?!
    domain.com/files or httpdos/files/ or .... help me please

    Any help would be appreciated

    1. There is something wrong with the source data for those users. Unfortunately there is no easy way to know what that is but in the past this has usually been related to missing email addresses.

    2. Use the full and complete path. On Unix/Linux systems you can find the complete path name by telnetting or sshing into your server, going to that directory and typing:

    pwd

        You telnet or SSH into your server, go to the relevant directory and type that in the command line.

        Otherwise you should ask your host for help with this.

            Also I need some Cleaner commands to get rid of these messy BBcodes,

            1. [/*:m:zjjaj0qk] = [/*:m:random characters]
            zjjaj0qk , these characters change in each post!
            How to remove them at once?

            2. [highlight=#color codes]
            Like the first item, I'm facing with different color code for high light tag, How to clean them all together?!

            Thanks

                  Sorry I do not know how to use cleaner.php to do this. Also please wait at least 12 hours before bumping your posts. Thank you.

                    there could be someone coded a cleaner to convert the quote in phpbb.

                    i've found a cleaner for smf. you might want to use it as reference and modify the parse_quote function accordingly.

                      The 1st 50 users in phpBB3 are bot entries, ImpEx fails them as they have no email address.
                      I wrote ImpEx.
