  • Database importer not working

    Okay, I'm looking to import my IPB database into my nice, new vBulletin installation (2.3.3), but the importer refuses to recognise any of the conversion scripts. I've got them uploaded to /admin/importers, and I can't think of anything that I might be doing wrong - please, someone, help me out here.

    Oh yeah, while I'm at it, is there any way to get the IPB importer to work with Gamma 3.0.0?

    I feel your pain man.

    I have it set up the same way you do. Maybe someone can shed some light on what we're doing or not doing.

      I can't help you with the first one but I can help you here, you must convert to 2.3.3 then upgrade to Gamma, there are no importers for vB3 yet.

        Wrong directory. From the instructions:

        To install these scripts, extract the files and upload into a directory called "importers" on your vBulletin forums root directory.

            Okay, got the convertor working, but I receive the following error when trying to transfer the user groups:

            Okay, call me a pillock, but what should I do to correct this problem?
