    Yes, it is possible with Impex. Impex is available to download after you have purchased vBulletin.

      and how do you evaluate the risk of such migration in respect of loosing the data?!.

      And how about the multi user interface, is it available with latest version?! or it need some time to be developed

        No extra charges, it comes included with licence.

        It is rare for someone to loose their data while importing if it does go wrong you will still have your phpbb forum up while you are converting so you can wipe vB & start again if it goes wrong I would recommend you read the manual.

          Because vBulletin Import/Export (ImpEx) reads but does not touch your phpBB database. You can import many times without hurting your phpBB forum.

          You can install vBulletin, setup your colors and skins, create the forums, get everything how you want it to look, then Import your phpBB forum.
