    As per the instructions on the import script page:

    To install these scripts, extract the files and upload into a directory called "importers" on your vBulletin 2 forums root directory. Once you have finished, be sure to delete these scripts again.
    Note also that there are no vB-to-vB import scripts for vB2. If you are importing another vB, then you will need to install vB 3.0.3 and use the Impex system.

    Alright, I have come to the conclusion that it is the server or some server setting.

    I just installed a brand new database, new directory, new files, new everything... for 2.3.5 and it doesn't work. It does the same thing.

    I don't know what could cause that... hm.


    Thanks for the help, anyway.

    Just to make sure I did the restore right in the first place, this is what you to when moving servers, right:

    1. Create the database.
    2. Upload the vBulletin files.
    3. Restore the database via mysql -uroot -p vbulletin < /path/to/backup.sql


    Right?

    Everything works just fine except for that stupid link...

    I already did try reuploading the files. I have no idea why it would be doing this.

    Odd, can you try reuploading the vB2 files then?

    I was not aware that the vB2 import system functioned without the files in place. my apologizes

    vB2 importers? No...?

    I didn't download the vB2 importers with my other board either, and I can still ACCESS THE LINK just fine.

    I am not even using any importers yet. I am just trying to access the original vBulletin "BB Import Systems" link.

    I would suggest upgrading to vB3 and using the vB2 > vB3 importer to get the other vB2 board.

    Seriously, I'm not trying to be mean here or anything, but are you not reading what I am saying?

    I am using NO HACKS. None whatsoever.

    I am using vBulletin 2.3.5 with a database from my other forum (which has no hacks) and I go to the admin panel and click the link "BB Import Systems" and it DOES NOT WORK.

    THERE ARE ABSOLUTELY NO HACKS INSTALLED OR EVEN ON THE SERVER.

    I think he mentioned that he didn't install the hack yet.

    Strange, Zachery - do you perhaps know?
