  • Challenge to switch to vBulletin Forum?

    Hi..I'm not technical oriented & know nothing about programming or scripts writing - that's why I'm here typing "crying" for help... - okay.. this is my issue -

    I co-own that currently is equipped with SiteNet BBS Forum, and we want to switch it to vBulletin - at the same time when we switch our hosting server (as our current hosting company does not support SSH access.)

    The forum has 118 registered users, 403 messages, 55 topics & 348 replies and counting...(I show these numbers just to give you some idea of how much data need to be transferred if we switched to vBulletin..) is a commercial site with heavy traffic & is growing, and so I need to know if vBulltin can help transferring/importing all our existing datafiles (e.g., registered users names, passwords, posts, threads, messages...etc.) from SiteNet BBS to vBulletin & automatically covert to an vBulletin database in mysql, replicates the forum (using the default vbulletin style)?

    Or what do I need to do in order to complete the transferring with no interruption? Thnx!!

      Awesome Steve...will investigate Impex tier 2 further and hope it'd work for us so that we can switch it to vBulltin. Will need your assistance if we may have further question befoure we purchase VB.
      (b.t.w. just a f.y.i. - I asked your sales yesterday over the phone that if VB' Impex supports sitenbe bb, and he told me "NO"! - am glad he is wrong....;o)

        The importers are updated on a regular basis and as you can see from the large amount the agent most likely never knew of its existence.

        We provide full support for imports so if you have a problem someone can help you along the way.
