  • importer for iB3

    Is there a importer for iB3 (not msql) to vbulletin?
    I can't change my iB to my sql for some reason and have only the importer for ib in my sql database.

    thx for the support

    Here's what's offered in terms of official upgrade scripts:
    We currently offer a set of scripts that will allow you to import posts, threads and users from the following programs: Infopop Ultimate Bulletin Board 5, Infopop Ultimate Bulletin Board 6.0, 6.1 and 6.2, Infopop UBBThreads 5.4 (formerly wwwthreads), vBulletin Lite, Infopop OpenTopic/UBB.x, Ikonboard 2, Ikonboard 3, phpBB2, DC Forum, XMB, and ezboard (posts only, not members for ezboard).

      The only converter available for vBulletin is the MySQL Version of Ikonboard 3.

      Have you tried asking for help on Ikonboard's Support Forum to convert to Ikonboard MySQL?

        Yes I asked how to do it, they said read the FAQ, but I can't get it to work, there is a Internal server error when I set up a database in the admin panel.
        Maybe someone knows this?

          + Did you setup your database and add a user to it though your hosting account control panel,
          or have you asked your host to do/help you with this?

          + Do you have the ability to have an MySQL db on your account?

            yes, I have my sql installed + I made a database with username and password on the server admin panel.
            After that, I tried to set up the database in the iB admin panel but I get a Internal server error...

            My hosts says that there is 1 server without the modules for this and one with the modules,so maybe I am on the server without the modules, I don't know...

              Well, can you ask your host if you are on the server missing the required modules, and if you are, can they install thme for you?

                Check the error logs on your site...They always tell you what modules you are missing for PERL

                  Ok, my hosts said that he will move the site to the US2 server...
                  So we'll see if it works then.

                  Another question: I have about 20.000 posts and 2000 threads on my board, would that be a problem for the converter to handle?

                  thx for the great support here, I 'm not used to that on iB

                    the ib3 -> vBulletin convertor should handle that amount quite easily, might take about 30mins of your time to get the whole import complete though.
