  • Upgrade/Import/Move from PHPBB2 possible?

    Hi,

    I have an existing bulletin board that is using PHPBB2 (latest version).

    If I buy vBulletin, do you have a way of upgrading/importing my existing bulletin board over to vBulletin? I obviously want to keep my existing threads/discussions and don't want to loose them if possible.

    Thanks in advance,

    Ian.

    Yes, importing from that forum is possible, and quite common

    It comes under the Tier 1 type.

      Purchase vBulletin.
      Download ImpEx (import/export for vBulletin).
      Give it the connection information for your phpBB database.
      It downloads the data, installs it into vBulletin, and performs the import.
      Run some cleanup scripts and see what you think.

      All while your phpBB forum is still running (might want to set it to read-only and put a message up).

      Of course you can also BEFORE the import spend a day or two customizing vBulletin and getting your color schemes and templates set up how you want so the transition is nice and seamless.
