Re: phpbb2 to phpbb3 conversion error

Hi Dicky,

Thanks for your quick response, your help is greatly appreciated!

Can i run a query to delete all the private message post texts? Or do i have to select them from the table to delete manually?

Sorry about the constant questions; im not very familiar with SQL databases!

Thanks!!!

Re: phpbb2 to phpbb3 conversion error

Hi Dicky, In this case, would removing / deleting all private messages fix this problem? I've left my converter on for batch_size =1 for 12 hours already, and it still hasnt reached the point it stopped last time. I want to see if there are quicker solutions. If i do try to search for the problems m...

Re: phpbb2 to phpbb3 conversion error

Hi Dicky, I found a post with symbols like this: eš ž&š Could those be the problem? I think they were created from one of my european members, when they were typing another language.... What if there are more of those? Is there any way to run a script to completely remove all weird characters? Th...

Re: phpbb2 to phpbb3 conversion error

Thanks Alfred for the quick response.

I read somewhere from searching 2 minutes ago that older versions of phpbb3 (i think 3.0.0) didnt have this problem. Should i try converting to an older version, then updating that version to 3.0.10?

What do you think?

Thanks!!
