    Can I convert from the latest stable version of phpBB3?

    Yes, we have an import script for this.

        Do you have a valid vbulletin licence?

          The ImpEx script is available for download in your members area.
          You will see it below the 'Download vBulletin' link.
          You will need your vBulletin Customer Number and Password to gain access to the Members Area.

              You will be able to get it when you have purchased a valid licence available in the members area.

                  Does this mean the issue with passwords not importing correctly has been resolved? I tried to convert from phpBB3 in early February and had a number of issues, that being the worst. Thanks!

                    No. phpBB3 passwords will not import because they are encrypted.

                      That's the one problem, and has always been the problem. It uses a different encryption hash in comparison to nearly every other piece of software on the internet. vBulletin, a-like many other software, uses MD5 Hashing to encrypt it's passwords; MD5's cannot be reverse-manufactured. Neither can phpBB3's custom hashing method, but because it's custom, it means that no other script can tap it's user table.

                      This used to be a nice place; what the hell's gone wrong?
