  • Newbie Guide To Import PHPBB

    Hi guys

    Just purchased VB and was wondering if you could show me an idiot proof way of importing my phpbb 3.0.4 to VB

    Thank You

    These are the only instructions we have:

    Change CKEditor Colors to Match Style (for 4.1.4 and above)

        There is an install service, though no official import service.
        I wrote ImpEx.

            They would follow the instructions just as hundreds of customers have done successfully. I'd be very dubious of any host that cannot do this. Honestly such a host would not have the necessary knowledge and experience to even manage a server competently.

                  I have restored and followed the procedure from the URl you have given. It is not working as we said earlier.
                  Thanks,

                    That is not a specific question. What did they do exactly and what is 'not working'?

                    Also I would be extremely worried about any host that cannot do a simple import that literally hundreds of vB customers have done successfully. Honestly they are either incompetent, or they never really even tried.

                        Sorry but that is not a service we provide. Also if this is your new host, then I strongly recommend reconsidering your choice of hosts.
