    No, because vB has it's own table and column names.

    And is there any way in which the names of the tables in the database and the name in the columns in the tables stay like they are?

    Would I be able to transfer my forum to Cbulliten if I purchased this from Jconserv.

    yes, if you can get a backup of your forum, you are very likely to transfer it over.

    Yeah, that's one of the problems with free hosts. You don't have control over content.

    Isn't there any way you can get a backup out of your admin panel? I'm sure phpBB has a database backup option.

    I read over at http://www.jconserv.net/ and I don't see anything indicating that they will give you a copy of your phpBB forum data. Unless you can get the data from them, you are stuck.

    I'm still digging around on their support forum but JConServ.net is excruciatingly slow for me.

    For a while, you could get data from JConServ free forum by Paypaling $10 to them. But now it looks like that feature is gone. Now if you were willing to get your website hosted at HostGator.com, apparently they will do a one-time transfer of your forum data over there.

    Free forums (EZBoard, Yuku, ProBoards, etc.) suck because they typically refuse to give you the data even if you offer to pay them so you have to kiss years of work goodbye to switch to professional forum software.

    Yes, we have an importer tool called ImpEx that will migrate the data from your existing phpBB board to vBulletin.

    You can find out more about ImpEx in the online manual, http://www.vbulletin.com/docs/html/impex

    Transferring a forum to vbulliten?

    I am no computer wiz by any means, so Im saying this at the risk of sounding like an idiot.

    I own a forum at the domain of www.nrlrant.com the forum is hosted by www.jconserv.net (a free forum hoster). The forum has grown a great deal over teh past year and I am contemplating purshing the a vbulliten forum.

    What I am not sure of is that if I do purchase the vbulliten forum is there anyway of transferring the content (posts, threads, members etc) of my current forum to teh new vbulliten format?

    Thanks in advance.
