  • Leasing, hacking, and converting

    I'm looking to buy the software (finally) and want to know this:

    I currently have a forum using phpBB 2.06. This forum has one minimal hack in it on one of its templates. Am I right in assuming that all that the converter (once I update to phpBB 2.10 would be doing is taking the info from the mySQL database and ordering it into vBulletin 3's preferred style?

    If I make a mess, for example, of upgrading my phpBB 2.06 to phpBB2.10 does this really matter as long as the converter can get to the underlying data?

    What are the repercussions of using some hacks - if I can work out what I'm doing - with a leased license?

    all the importer does is take the basic database settings and put it into a new database... you will lose all hacks and skins from your phpbb

    I dont think you would have to upgrade to phpbb 2.10 it should be the same database wise... MacBook Pro 15.4" Core2Duo 2.33GHz.

      If it is a template hack... It would be absolutely no problem to convert to vB
