  • phpBB to vBulletin

    A client of me wants to migrate from phpBB to VBulletin. Because I am not experienced in phpBB my question is, whether the migration via the ImpEx extension will work without problems. Last year we made a migration from Typo3's "chc_forum" to vBulletin and we had to do some manual changes in database after import.

    The used phpBB is Version 2.0.22 with 4,000 users and 30,000 articles. There are some polls used.

    To get vB support on these forums you first need to be a licensed customer and register for Priority Forum Support. To do this, please go here:

    ...and enter your email address in one of the boxes. You'll need to have your customer number and password to access the page.

    Once you've done this, please post in the appropriate support forum for your version.

    You imply to be running vBulletin and converting. The customer can set you up for customer support.

    But yeah, as a pre-sales question. vBulletin impex supports phpBB.

      Yes, we have an import script for IPB. You can read about it here: (IPB 2)
