  • phpBB conversion - getting it right a second time


    I've converted my phpBB board to vBulletin using the excellent Impex, with very few problems.

    I have effectively created a test site using the old phpBB data, and made several tweaks to the templates, CSS etc.

    What I really want to do now is to use this test site to go live. The old phpBB site is still running, so the database has been updated with a load of new posts since I converted.

    My question is: can I backup the old database with the new posts included, and then run Impex and keep the new tweaks in tact, or would I have to drop or empty several tables from the database in order for Impex to run a clean conversion, and not worry about duplicating posts, users etc.

    If it would be quicker to empty a few tables, could somebody please tell me which ones?

    Thanks for your time.
