  • problem while importing threads & posts from ubb 5.44a

    After I submit to import threads & posts, the first cycle of threads & posts imports fine - but the next page that comes up only contains the following text:

    "The parameter is incorrect."

    This happens regardless of the number of threads per cycle - I've tried 100, 25 & 10 threads per cycle each with the same result.

    All other steps of the import process worked fine, until I got to this part...

    My server stats:

    vBulletin: 2.0.3
    PHP: 4.0.6
    MySQL: 3.23.36
    OS: Win2K Server
    Webserver: IIS 5

    Any ideas what is causing this problem?

    Are you sure the error's coming from vB? That text doesn't exist in any vB files.

    Could you show us what URL you're being redirected to? (Right click -> properties -- make sure you highlight the *whole* URL)

      The error seems to be some kind of problem with Netscape 4.51 I tried the import script many times getting this same error "The parameter is incorrect" once I got past the first cycle of thread/post imports. The page containing the error text was on bbimport_ubb5.php with some settings/variables after it.

      Just to check I tried using MSIE version 5 for the import and it does the import without any problems.

      About the error while using Netscape, maybe Netscape had a problem passing some variable/parameter to the script.
