  • Import threads and posts from PHPBB in two steps

    I was wondering what is the best strategy to import and add threads and posts from a existing PHPBB Board to a VBulletin Board. Is it better to import PHPBB posts to a test VBulletin board and in a second step to import posts from the VBulletin test board to the existing VBulletin board or is it better to import directly posts from the PHPBB board to the existing VBulletin board.
    Thanks in advance

    In my opinion a direct import would be better.

      Thanks for you answer. The problem is that, because i have never user Impex, i am a bit afraid that the import will mess up my existing board.

        make a backup first
        I like to import a new forum into a test vb first, so I can make sure all the permissions and threads are showing correctly, then I'll import that forum into my live site.
        Just make a backup either way in case you do mess something up

          You shouldn't worry about that. The import doesn't alter the original forum in any way, shape or form. But to play it safe, make a thorough backup of the db prior tot he conversion as adviced above.
