  • How Do I?

    I recently took over my friends RPG. I bought my own licence for VB3 and I've installed it on my own host etc. He used vb2 when it was his licence. He sent me a copy of the database because his web hosting ended and I took over the RPG. I was wondering if there was a way I could import the vb2 database into my new vb3 forums?

    The old forums isn't online anymore

    There is a beta vB2 import script you could try. Otherwise you could temporarily install the vB3 files, upgrade that database, then use the vB3-to-vB3 import script.

      Should I install a temp copy of vb2 then use vb2 to vb3 to get these files? How do I get the old vb2 database in the temp vb2?

            You need to make sure. You will need to be up to 2.2.9 to upgrade to vB3 directly. Otherwise, see these instructions:

              I think I'll just start over. Thank you for all the help though.
