  • phpbb2plus to vb

    I have a couple of questions.
    I have a phpbb2plus forum and want to move across to vb i just fed up with having to remake the files every 2 weeks or so.

    the main cause of concern is will impex import the file attachments as this is a modifcation to the original phpbb board.

    this is very important as i run a guitar forum and have lots of users personal mp3's etc on the site.

    finally does vb get hacked? i've had my site hacked twice mainly down to me not updating the forum scripts when they become available and if it does is updating forum scripts easy (unlike phpbb2plus)

    thanks in advance Rick

      i took the plunge and bought it last night!

      and have worked through a couple of test installs.

      and all went pretty good except the stupid mysql max questions thing, but i cheated that as well .

      i do have one question and can i post it on this thread?
      or do i have to use a different forum
