  • phpBB converter not working

    I finish converting member information then it gives me this error message:

    Database error in vBulletin Control Panel 2.3.3:

    Invalid SQL: SELECT * FROM .users LIMIT 250,250
    mysql error: Table 'thebarr_forum.users' doesn't exist

    mysql error number: 1146

    And I don't know what to do now. How can I get my posts/threads, still?

    EDIT: I just converted my IPB to phpBB 2.0.6 how I could then convert it to vBulletin (2.3.3)

    I checked the support system for similar problems and unfortunately this appears to be an issue with the latest versions of phpBB (the import script has only been tested for versions up to 2.0.0.)

    According to the Dev working on these hr is no longer able to update the vB2 import scripts. He is busy working on updating the entire import system for vB3 and he hopes to have this done by the end of January. Sorry for the inconvenience.

      If I were to use an eariler version of phpBB, would I be able to convert, though?

        It should work with 2.0.0.

          Ok, I just uninstalled phpbb 2.0.6, installed 2.0.0, converted IPB to it, and tried running the vB converter again, and got the same thing.

          Database error in vBulletin Control Panel 2.3.3:

          Invalid SQL: SELECT * FROM .users LIMIT 230,230
          mysql error: Table 'thebarr_forum.users' doesn't exist

          mysql error number: 1146

          Does it matter that vB and phpBB are in different databases?

            Well unfortunately the only other issue I saw like this we were never able to fix. Nonetheless fill out a support ticket at:

            http://www.vbulletin.com/members/support_form.php

            Be sure to include the login info to your Admin CP, phpMyAdmin and FTP. Also include you phpBB db name.

              Ah well, I did at least get member info successfully converted, how they don't have to re-register

              At least I know this was the last conversion I have to go through.
