  • IPB 1.3 (InvisionFree Forum) to vBulletin Forum

    Good Day,

    Please forgive me if I am posting in the wrong place...I hate it when I do that.

    I am preparing to import an InvisionFree forum (IPB 1.3 ((If I understand the Impex information correctly)... This import is going on a spare license (4.0.5) that will subsequently be transferred to a friend (the one on the IF board) should she like vBulletin's set up with her board on it.

    I am wondering if anyone has tackled such an import recently as the one thread I found was closed (HOW TO...) although once I get my access sorted out here, I am going to download the attachment.

    We have acquired the database SQL for my friend's InvisionFree board so that hurdle has, with a minor bit of difficulty, been overcome.

    I appreciate any help or advice anyone can provide to make this a bit easier as I am the technical village idiot.

    Warmest Regards and Thank for Any and All Assistance....

    Alisa

          Just verifying Animemike's post. He is not hijacking this thread, but working on the IMPEX import for me.

            does the source DB have a prefix?
            did you add it if so into the impex config file?

              No and i thought you had to import the datebase into mysql before you could can do anything with Impex

                      Zachary,

                      Thanks for responding. Please see above. Animemike is doing the import for me and that's the first error he's received.

                      Thanks again...

                      Alisa

                        Did you grab the schema from the impex forum? The InvisionFree site didnt provide schema, just data.

                          I believe he did. And I swear getting this info from InvisionFree was like pulling hen's teeth! They were polite but wanted to know where we were moving..etc.

                          Anyway, I'm in the USA and Mike's in the UK...he will probably see this before I can ask him...

                          Thanks again for responding.

                          Warmest Regards,

                          Alisa

                              My suggestion would be to check the mysql backup and try removing the badwords data.
