  • Thinking of Installing vBulletin

    I asked this over on, and they said you could probably better answer my question here, so I'll just cross post.

    Hey there. I currently run an invision board, and I am looking to move the board to my main site once I move it to a new server. I am pretty impressed so far by vBulletin and the mods here... it seems like it's less hacked up than Invision is. What I am wondering is 1) how hard is a conversion from Invision to vBulletin. Can I just backup my board over on Invision, install vBulletin to the new server, and then convert the backup to a vBulletin? What do I use to do the conversion? Does it save everything so my users won't have to re-register, lose postcounts, or anything like that?

    We do have a InvisionBoard import script for vB 2.3.4. For it to work, you need to install vB and do the import on the same server as your IB database. Both dbs also need to be accessible by the same db user. Probably the easiest way to do this is to backup and restore your IB database to the vB server. Seel this page for instructions:
