  • Unable to make import

    Hello everyone,

    I'm trying to import a phpBB 3 to vB 4 and keep getting errors. Here is the message:

    ImpEx Database error

    mysql error: Link-ID == false, connect failed

    mysql error:

    Date: Saturday 13th 2011f August 2011 02:26:25 PM
    Database: MainDatabase
    MySQL error:

    Can someone please help me understand what I am doing wrong. As far as I know I've entered all the fields correctly in the config file except for maybe this entry:

    $impexconfig['source']['server'] = ''; (I've changed the name to but, there I have the real domain)

    Is that the error? What should go there? The exact address? for example?

    Thank you

    You need to have the phpBB database on the same server as vB.

      That is the problem.. so far I have not been able to import the database successfully. I was hoping that I could do it remotely.

      Thank you
