  • Impex is not responding to me

    Hello, I'm trying to move my previous forum to vBulletin, but I have some issues that I can't solve.

    I've been completing each of the steps found in the online manual (http://www.vbulletin.com/docs/html/impex) but I'm unexpectedly stuck at this step http://www.vbulletin.com/docs/html/main/impex_import in which I will explain in further detail.

    Once I select the system and select the version and product to vBulletin 4.0.* and click "Begin Import", instead of showing this http://files.vbulletin.com/doc_image...ex_modules.png the page only refreshes and no action is taken. Everything seems untouched and no matter how many times I try to click "Begin Import" I get the same result. Both databases are intact.

    Is there any explainable reason for this?

    I modified very carefully the ImpExConfig.php file so I know all the values that I changed were valid.

    Edit: Sometimes when I enter to the Import / Export page at the admincp I get this error message:

    Fatal error
    : Call to undefined method stdClass::set() in /home/xxxx/xxxx/xxxx/forum/includes/functions.php on line 7320

    Since no one replied I decided to reinstall everything in another server, my previous issue was solved thanks to my deduction. But now I encountered something very odd while using Impex.

    Right now I have a fresh-installed forum with no members but me. So I'm the only member (user ID 1 obviously), and lets say my email is abc@gmail.com in both the old and my new database.

    When I try to Associate my user account with my original account using my vBulletin user ID I get a very very odd error message which says:
    Associating the users...
    1 NOT done. It is most likely that vBulletin user 1 dose not exist.
    Continuing with the association.

    How is this possible? All first forum accounts are number 1, and this is no exception my admin account is indeed 1, but Impex says it's not...!

    And when I Import users even if my original account and my new account have the same e-mail they don't associate (I did select Yes to "Would you like to associated imported users with existing users if the email address matches ?).

    I always end up with the following:
    ID 1 admin (0 posts, registered the day my vBulletin forum was installed, it's just like when I installed the forum)
    ID 2 imported_admin (with all my posts and personal information)
    ID 3 member (even though he should be ID 2, everything else is okay)

    And what I want is only this
    ID 1 admin (with all my posts and personal information)
    ID 2 member (yep ID 2 like in the previous forum with everything else fine as well)

      Did you set your admin user account in vBulletin to be unalterable within the config.php file?
      Vote for:

      - *Admin Settable Paid Subscription Reminder Timeframe*
      -
      *PM - Add ability to reply to originator only*
      - Add Admin ability to auto-subscribe users to specific channel(s)
      - Highlight the correct navigation tab when you are on a custom page
      - "Quick Route" Interface...
      - Allow to use custom icons for individual forums

        No I didn't, this is how I have it.

        Code:
        $config['SpecialUsers']['undeletableusers'] = '';
        I must also say that I've only modified database related lines within the config.php file. Nothing more has been changed.
