    ImpEx can import phpBB to vBulletin. However, this only covers the basics. Hacks you install to make your phpBB function like vBulletin will not be carried over. I think one of those is attachments. hack for example.

    ImpEx's documentation can be seen here.

      Now by basic you mean
      It will include all the Members, Posts, Topics and everything?

        If you are running phpbb, there is a script that will allow you to take all of your members, user info, posts, threads and forums and move them to a VBulletin forum. This script is called Impex, as mentioned, and will do all of the moving for you.

        I am not 100% sure on anything else, as I have not used it before.

            As long as it is a real phpBB forum and not a "hosted" forum like ProBoards, where you can't actually get access to the data, you should be fine.

            phpBB attachments are also supported.
