  • Considering transfer, but...

    wondering how easy it is or possible to transfer all information from one host to another. We have an established community. Will we lose everything if we try to transfer everything? I am on IPB at the moment, if it helps.

    Ok, see that "majority" can be transferred from IPB... I am guessing that suggests that some content could be lost?

        I don't really have any more specific info than what is available here:

        Please note that since IPB2 passwords are encrypted, they cannot be imported. Your users will need to reset their passwords after the import. You can read more about this here:

          Thanks for the link.

          If someone could decipher this statement from that link, it would be a help:


          Moderator

          Attached to forum with majority

          Thanks.

            If your users were assigned to a forum as a moderator they should still be assigned after the import.

              Glad I asked. The way it's worded, it implies that some information may be lost.

              Thanks for clarifying.

                Its possible that they may not get transfered over and their permissions will not be the same.

                  You should go on the basis that you may need to rework some usergroup permissions since I doubt any forum is 100% identical to vBulletin in that area.

                    Yeah. You will need to redo permissions for most groups anyway as IPB differs in permissions i believe..but thats like 1 hour job max if you have 20-30 groups. If you have the normal 5 then you should be able to do it in like 10-20 minutes since your new to vb .
