  • import ubb5 missed a forum

    The ubb 5 importer imported all forums but in one of them it did not include the contents. The forum shows zero posts. Is there a way to import just the contents of one forum?

    There might be others but, if so, I haven't spotted them, yet.

    Also, it did not import any of the archives.

    I'd try the import again. Also are the archives from a hack?

      Will re-doing the import affect the forums already imported in any way?

        It's been a long time since I upgraded my UBB 5.45c, but I seem to remember that you have the option to specifiy which forums you want to import. Is that not the case? If so, skip over everything and just choose to import that forum.

        Note that if your UBB was hacked in anyway, some of the import may not work.

          I don't believe that at any point during the import I was given any options to specifiy which forums.

          My UBB was attacked by an unknown hacker but I believe they only placed a rogue .htaccess file in the cgi-bin/ubb directory. The forums themselves appear to be intact and all but one was imported successfully.

              In the end I decided that trying to import a single missed forum was not worth the hassle. However, in searching these forums I found that a number of others had similar problems, one or more forums somehow missed in the import process, with no easy solution. It seems to me that, if possible, this feature should be built in to vBulletin, i.e., the ability to import one or more forums individually.
