  • Impex Issue

    Hello,
    Alright so I uploaded and installed my new copy of Vbulletin (im using 3.0.9 because it has way more hacks currently available). I also uploaded impex so I can convert my IPB 2.0.4 database to Vbulletin. When I try to login, I get the repeated admin login loop (it says thanks and then brings you back to the login screen). I have had this issue before though, so I knew to upload tools.php and reset my cookie path and domain. The login on my main forum index works however I still get it when I try to login to impex.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Okay, an update. I downloaded the latest Impex from the members area and uploaded it. I was using an older version that I had before. Now when I enter my username and password it no longer loops me back to the login screen, I am brought to an error page. I get the following error:

    There seems to have been a slight problem with the Spunky Online Community Forum database.

    Database error in vBulletin:ImpEx Target 3.0.9:cannot use database mysql error: No database selectedmysql error number: 1046Date: Saturday 05th of November 2005 10:37:30 AMScript: http://www.spunky-online.com/forum/impex/Referer: Username: MikeWalczakIP Address: 4.159.170.36
    I am confused because I am almost sure that I entered everything correctly in the Impexconfig.php file.

    Heres the contents of my impexconfig file

    Code:

    $impexconfig['source']['password'] = 'REMOVED';
    $impexconfig['source']['database'] = 'spunky_removed';
    $impexconfig['source']['tableprefix'] = '';

    $impexconfig['system']['errorlogging'] = true;
    $impexconfig['system']['language'] = 'impex/impex_language.php';
    $impexconfig['system']['pagespeed'] = 1;
    ?>
    [/SIZE]


    The target is my current vbulletin database information and the source is my current IPB 2.0.4 database information.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks,
    Mike
