  • how do I work impex?

    Hey,
    I just downloaded impex from the members area and well im a little confused with this. I uploaded the "upload" folder to my forum directory and renamed it "convertors". My question to you is how the heck do I work this thing. I would like to merge two vbulletin databases together, however they are two different vbulletin versions, is that an issue? Do I really need to upload EVERYTHING in the system folder when I really only need vb3?

    Thanks,
    Mike

      okay, I have uploaded everything to my vbulletin folder, but I am a little bit confused with those directions online. For the first DB, should it be the main db of the forum and for the source, would that be the db that I would like to import into the main db? Like I said I would like to merge 2 vbulletin databases, however one is an earlier version of 3.0, I dont think that should be a problem....

        The target db is your current vB. The source db is the db you are importing.

          Thanks so much for your help Steve. I have successfully, or so I thought, ran the importer. As I stated I wanted to merge two vbulletin databases together.When I go to the main forum index, the total number of members and the total number of threads/posts in each forum appears to be accurate. The problem is when I go to the forum or to the memberlist, none of the imported data is shown. Any ideas?

            Take special note of The End Game section. Following these steps should solve those issues.
