Re: Migrating Content

Thanks John, good info; although I have been using X10 for my other websites, which are not forums for years with no problem. they do also provide paid hosting. I'll make a decision later, too busy getting these forums up right now. I would like to ask another question while I am posting; is there a...

Re: Migrating Content

Yes John, I know. I have been fighting with this problem for two years. I knew the boards would go down at some time and they were manageable for that time. But now trying to save the old data has become impossible. It's OK, I have resigned myself to having to lose the old information and I think th...

Re: Migrating Content

I'll give that a try John, although I don't think it will work. Hos admin staff and even I, have his personal email addresses, email goes unanswered.

Thanks for trying to help, I appreciate it.

Edited to add: I tried the email addy you supplied. Got an error message that said: "Domain not found."

Re: Migrating Content

Can you post a link to your board and ‘Best Boards’ website please, I can’t find ‘Best Boards’ anywhere? The first one is to my board and the second is to the Best Boards Index. http://frost.bbboy.net/thenew49ers http://bb.bbboy.net/index.shtml Their main support admin and I became friends and even...

Re: Migrating Content

John, thank you for the detailed reply. Lots of good information. I have a situation with my old boards that is unique and possibly unheard of. The old board's developer and owner has disappeared literally, he lived in England. None of the admin features work and it has been this way for two years. ...

Re: Migrating Content

I think I see what you mean John. I found one tool that may be able to download the data from my old board. It is here: http://www.tenmax.com/teleport/pro/home.htm

But if I can use this tool, then how do I migrate that data to my phpBB board?

Re: Migrating Content

STN Well, that is the main problem other than me not finding the migrate feature on phpBB. My old board is a best Boards provider. But many of the tools on that system stopped working and downloading data was one of them. I have no way of getting the data. So this may be an impossible task. I did go...
