  • Just a simple question...

    Is it possible to literaly upgrade PhpBB to Vbulletin as well as changing servers and domain names at the same?

    Run the convertor then change hosts, or the other way round. If you convert first it means that you dont have to delete phpbb off your new host, but either way it should be possible.

      Converter? Never heard of that. Is there a description of it somewhere around here?

        It is basically an importer. It is just a script that u run and it changes all the data in the phpBB MySQL database into vBulletin MySQL information

            The import scripts are available to license holders in the Members Area.

                Oh, another question. I haven't made any changes to the base code but i have installed hacks. Would the converter work with the hacks or would i have to delete them first?

                  The import scripts are designed to work with the unaltered data. It would be best to uninstall any hacks prior to running the importer.
