    everytime i do the new import i have resetup my vb4 suite for clean database.
    now i really have no idea and the vb dev do not reply this topic for any guide or reason.

    i make vb folder for vBulletin


    then make new database for vb with

    edit config


    upload all vb4 files to vb folder


    install vb4 normally ok?


    now u have 2 forum

    the old one phpbb3 and the new one vb4 with difrenet database

    now upload impex folder to vb folder and edit impex config file


    close ur phpbb3 forum from cpanel


    then browse this link http://xxxxxx/vb/impex/index.php

    and complete the progress

    Well, I think my way around it is going to be to update all post counts so the duplicate users will get set to 0, and then prune all 0 posters, it's rough, and those with 0 posts will have to sign up again, but I'm out of options.

    Support told me to make a bug report, but those haven't gotten others anywhere.

    no problem to remove user with imported_ in front of their names ,that easy trought phpmyadmin
    but there are also user duplicated with the same of their username,

    after remover the users from phpmyadmin with imported_ prefix,
    there are around 70,000 users in my database
    i got only 36,000+ real users


    one more thing,
    if we merge user from vb admin cp,
    their total post become double too,

    example :

    john - 1500 posts
    imported_john - 1500 posts
    merge .............
    john 3000 posts

    we can;t merge with the same username
