I have a vbulletin 4.2.5 and I want to convert to phpbb,
I search in the forum and the most current converter that I have found has been this: viewtopic.php?p=13252438#p13252438
After read this post and others, my first step was install phpbb 3.0.11 because, this converter its for phpbb 3.0.11 (if all finish good, then upgrade phpbb).
In the firsts moments, I was differents error, contact with my host, and reconfigure apache and php for solved this and have more resources.
Start the conversion and after a 2 or 3 or 4 minutes I have a Error 504 Gateway Timeout.
I try with differents configurations (I have a VPS host) but always, the first step in the conversion is this, error 504 Gateway Timeout.
If reload page or press enter, again, after 2,3 or 4 minutes again I have the same error.
In some times, before made some changes in host, I have this error:
Code: Select all
SQL ERROR [ mysqli ]
Table 'mydatabase_php30.userconv' doesn't exist 
INSERT INTO userconv (user_id, username_clean) VALUES ('9007', 'pizzza_25'), ('9008', 'nosenikeponer'), ('9009', 'ppka'), ('9010', 'alfredse'), and here, more others users, but after conversion, the users are well in new phpbb forum...
FILE: (not given by php)
LINE: (not given by php)
FILE: [ROOT]/install/install_convert.php(1003) : eval()'d code
Then, go to install page again, prompt if start new conversion or continue previous conversion, if select continue previous, then, continue with any error.
I need about 6-8 hours for made the convert (my forum its a large forum) but all continue with any error.
But when finish, I go to my forum php 3.0.11 and I have all special characters with error, I'm explain: Characters like á, ñ, é...appears wrong( My language is spanish). (I can attach a screenshot but appears like this phrase: Ãrea Empleo / Trabajo / FormaciÃ³n )
I try install a spanish language in my vb with UTF-8, after conversion, have the same error.
I try to defined english language to default language in my vb forum, after conversion, I have the same problem.
I don't know how solved this...
Also, for test, I try to upgrade phpbb 3.0.11 to 3.2.4, around 80% indicate a error mysql, but this, its other problem, first, I need fix the problem indicate in this thread.
I have different tests, configurations, editions ... about 10 or 15 days, but I can not find anything else to try.
Thanks in advance.
