  • Migration from PHPBB2 to Vbulletin v. 3.8.2. A BIG PROBLEM

    Firstly, I'd like to say hello to everyone.
    I've got a problem while migration.

    Namely, I was trying to migrate from PHPBB2 to Vbulletin 3.8.2. using Impex, my forum is: , I have installed forum here: .

    Members - all of them have been transfered, but I see that first members who signed up at PHPBB2 are not registered at Vbulletin.

    What's the problem?

    I see also that a lot of posts have not been transfered, including threads.

    Can anyone help me? I don't know what happened.
    I'm new here and really need help.

    Anyone can help me please? I don't know what I did wrong, my forum doesn't work properly and I think that it has something to do with migration. Where can I find NOT TRANSFERED posts and userers and add them manually or so?

      1. did you update your counters after running impex as per the documentation ?
      2. during the impex process, you should of seen who many errors you had, or how many items didn't transfer

        Loco. 1) I did sychronisation in PHPBB script, I also did update counters after running IMPEX.

        Check and update database: Succesful 1, Failed: 0
        Possibly custom tables or incorrect prefix :

        phpbb_confirm NOT found.

        If you have all red tables, i.e. none correct this could possible be your table prefix :


        Import usergroup: Successful 6, Failed: 0
        Import user: Successful 16195, Failed: 2

        A few times I got an error: Invalid, skipping. Failed on : email
        And something like that:
        18.18% User -> imported_destavel
        18.18% User -> j4nex

        Import banlist: Successful: 2, Failed: 0
        Import forum: Successful: 106, Failed: 5 (Invalid, skipping. Failed on : parentid)
        Import thread: Successful: 4128, Failed: 80 (Invalid, skipping. Failed on : forumid)
        Import smile: Successful: 40, Failed: 6 ((Invalid, skipping. Failed on : Smile not imported)
        Import post: Successful: 22951 Failed: 524 (Invalid, skipping. Failed on : threadid)
        Import poll: successful: everything

        Would like to know how to add threads, posts and users automatically or manually - don't know where to find which users have not been transfered.

        Is there any option to fix that problem?

        Thanks so much guys!
