    Nevermind. I guess I just should use Impex

      I tried to use Impex and since it just gave me the option to upgrade to 3.51, I cancelled the import and tried to download a newer version of Impex just in case. Well, if I try to run Impex again, it gives me the following error:
      ImpEx Database errormysql error: Link-ID == false, connect failed
      mysql error:
      mysql error number: 0
      Date: Saturday 14th of January 2006 08:33:45 PM

      I tried deleting the session, removing importids and even restarting MySQL with no luck. Any suggestions?

        The 'false, connect failed' error means that the info in your ImpExConfig.php file is wrong. You need to correct this info.

          ok. I did that and it "seems" that most of it worked. In the What's Going On? section it shows the right stats for users and threads. However, I am unable to see any of it under the admin cp Forum Manageer section nor the index page. How do I get to those imported items?

          Thanks,

              Is there any way to prevent Impex from being run without needing an admin account? Should I leave Impex installed once I finish with it? If so, then how do I remove it from the admincp templates? I searche the article above just in case this information was there but I was not able to find it.

              Thanks for your time,

              Gladys

                Another bug I found includes the fact that when I run the couter resets as you specified, it cleared my whole CSS (file CSS) so all my customizations are gone. I posted something similar in the bugs section some time ago.

                  Remove the impex directory and all Impex files.

                  I don't understand the second issue but if you posted in the Bug tracker then it will be followed up on there.
