  • Need help with import etc


    I have just purchase vbulletin for myself, but i really dont know how to import my old forums into the new ones.

    I have a website ( which is using 'phpbb2' at the moment. I want to import all the users, posts, topics and forums etc into my new vbulletin.

    I have tried to follow the documentation provided, but i have come to a stop, an error has occured.

    "There seems to have been a problem with the database.

    ImpEx Database errormysql error: cannot use database vbulletin

    mysql error: Access denied for user '########'@'localhost' to database 'vbulletin'

    mysql error number: 1044

    Date: Wednesday 04th of January 2006 03:07:27 AM"

    It could just be a log on issue, but i do need help.

    The error suggests the database username you have entered in the the impexconfig.php file does not have the required permission to access the database.

    Check the values you have entered in the impexconfig file are correct. If you are not sure what the username is or what permission they have you will need to contact your server host.

    Please also see, this section of the manual which includes details of setting up new database users.
