  • Upgrading from Invisonboard 1.2

    How do I go about doing this? I can't seem to find anywhere that gives explination of how to go about switching from IPB 1.2 to vB 3 beta 7.

    Should I delete all my IPB files first, upload the vB files and then run the upgrade script? I have already uploaded a VB test board that I am going to delete when I put my main one up, I tried running the import script from there and only got this message "Warning: main(./../admin/bbimport.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/mowen/public_html/vbtest/cpadmin/importers/bbimport_invib.php on line 4"

    Any help here?

    I advice to convert from ikonboard to vbulletin version 2 first, and then upgrade from version 2 to version 3.

        If it is the official ikonboard to vb2 convert script, i hope it comes with some instructions. I wouldn't know - I never run any convert. script.

          Its Invisionboard.

          And no, I can't seem to find any instruction on how to do this thing. There must be some somewhere but I seem to be missing it.

          Anyone tell me what I have to do?

                I think, you forgot to upload bbimport_invib.php on your server... Also there is no possibility to convert anything into vB3 - only vB2 at the moment...

                  I am looking to do the same thing in to VB3 is this an option yet?

                  If not would this work? Setupa VB2 temp forum, import invisionboard in to the VB 2 forum, then can you import the users and forum in to a VB3 forum?

                    Today, with ImpEx, you can import directly from IPB 1.3 to vB 3.0.3.
