      you need to have the forum files on the same server. But Ubb does NOT have to be working as long as you have the ubb data.

            Just make sure you put all of your UBB data on the VO server. As klisis said, all the data (UBB and your new vB) has to be on the same server.

                Styles are converted (I don't think there's any way around that) but you can set it so they are not used by any forums.

                  hmmmmmm

                  I used a few hacks that edited the template. this will probaly mess up when I convert. I NEED a way around it.

                    Upgrade to the latest ver of UBB without any hacks. Then proceed to install vB. Should work fine.

                      That's a very good suggestion. You could also make a backup right before you start the import and then just go ahead with it. that way if something does screw up, you're covered.

                              Another UBB thing

                              Ok, here's a question I have before going through with a UBB to VB transfer...

                              Firstly, I'm moving servers since the server I am on right now has an old version of mysql.

                              My question is...do you need to chmod all files and make sure permissions are all correct when going from UBB to vB? And I would assume graphics don't mattter, just as long as you have the data files in ASCII.
