  • PHPNuke 7.3 to vBulletin 3.0.3

    I currently use PHP-Nuke 7.3 (with phpBB 2.0.8) and am considering moving to vBulletin with vbPortal. Am I going to just treat this like a phpBB -> vBulletin conversion or does the fact that I use PHP-Nuke make things more complicated?

    TIA,
    Hostile

    it depents how much your phpbb database has been altered. i dunno what phpnuke exactly does but you should try to get your phpbb back to original state if you want to be sure that your import will be succesfully.

      I may be able to help you soon. I am currently writing a converter for phpNuke BB to vB. All you have to do is leave phpNuke in the database, because that is what is going to be converted.

        I have not made any modifications to the PHPNuke database. The only changes that have been made are that some new tables were created for some modules/blocks that should have no effect on a vBulletin install since they would just be ignored during the conversion.

                  If you are converting PHPNuke's Forum Module, you can probably use the phpBB (2.0.4 - 2.0.11) importer and modify it slightly so it will import the database info.

                    We had move phpnukebb database to original phpbb databased w/o problems, there are an importer for this.
                    We do feel that phpbb 2 vbb convertor already exist.
                    So all you have to do, is to run two of these convertors one by one.

                      I'm currently running phpnuke 7.5 and am setting up a recently purchased vBulletin 3.06. I've spent many hours trying to import my nuke data to vB. I'm able to sucessfully import the user database, but the forums are a totally different beast.

                      I've read many forum posts, both here, and on vBulletin.org and everyone say's pretty much the same thing:

                      1) Create a brand new phpbb install
                      2) Using phpMyAdmin, export all the databases that start with nuke_bb
                      3) remove all the tables in your phpbb (except phpbb_confirm)
                      4) import the data you exported in step 3 (from the nuke database) into phpbb
                      5) install / configure / run impex on your vBulletin forum, and viola, presto everything works.

                      Thats the theory anyhow, although I'm having troubles at step 5. I think its because my data that I imported from nuke isn't 'quite right' in phpbb. I'll do more and hope it works, but to be honest, when I bought vBulletin I was hoping there would be stronger support for going directly from phpnuke to vBulletin.

                        there already is an php nuke importer - http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showthread.php?t=102412 #32 on that list. is that the same?

                        else you could send a private message to jerry and ask if he could create an impoter for it. you will need to supply a test database.

                            I believe they are a generic importer and they work for both PostNuke and PHPNuke. If it doesn't work, you could just use the phpBB importer and use that importer.
