Hi, I can't really debug this from the info given, but it seems configuration-dependent, since I haven't seen this issue before. Anyway: you could try to go the the next step by hand (just replace the ?step= part of the URL). The correct order of steps are in my previous post. You might (will?) run ...

The steps should be (in order): // Step descriptions and sequence $steps = array("start" => "Welcome Screen", "settings" => "Settings", "forums" => "Forums, Catogories and Permissions", "users" => "Users", "mods" => "Moderators, Admins and Usergroups", "topics" => "Topics", "posts" => "Posts", "pm" ...

Do the forums show up in the admin panel (where you added the category) or not? Try running a SQL query like UPDATE phpbb_forums SET cat_id = 1; where 1 is the ID of the category you added (most likely 1). This will move all forums to category 1 and make them appear. Afterwards, you can move them in...

This is indeed the last step of the conversion. The search index is what the search-function of phpBB uses to find posts. It is very large and thus takes quite some time to build.
If you use the tool suggested by Dicky, your conversion will be done, all other data is already converted.

Exactly. That tool builds the index post-by-post, so there should be no timeouts. Will take a LONG time though.

Nice work Dicky.

Feel free to use my attachment conversion addon for the vBulletin 2.x convertor as inspiration / starting-point for attachment conversion.

Regards,

Bad Behaviour looks interesting, did you install it? I would like to know more about how it works. Also: I don't think something like that is very effective: it would be pretty easy to code a spambot that does behave more like a human being: put delays in the requests, download all images and other ...

The system of Neo has such problems: upon refreshing the image a couple of times, I've seen quite a few examples of letters I can't tell apart ('is it a Z or a N?'). In my opinion, that is unwanted. The problem of Bot registrations and spamming is however very real. I think that a forum software suc...

I think it's interesting to note that the author of this software thinks the phpBB visual confirmation could be improved on the following points:
Weaknesses: constant font, no rotation, no deformation, constant colours, weak perturbation

Visual confirmation of phpBB (and others) hacked

Are people here aware of this: http://sam.zoy.org/pwntcha/ It says it can defeat the visual confirmation system of phpBB (and others, including vBulletin and Sourceforge) with almost 100% accuracy. Good news is that it can't be exploited yet, since the author has not released the code (yet). I'm not...

The forums/cats problem is probably easily fixed from the admin-panel (see also the FAQ in the first post). You should be able to login to the phpBB forum using the Admin account from the vBulletin forum. The phpBB admin account you created during the installation of phpBB is deleted with the conver...

I think you can just try to point a fresh phpBB installation to the database the mambo-component used, by editing config.php. Most likely the changes for Mambo integration (if any) to the phpBB database will not affect standalone operation. Make sure you run the install/update-to-latest.php script a...

The question you said which made no sense, I mean, on some conversions the PHP and SQL can convert and sometimes go into the the other program Still not totally clear, but it seems you think that the conversion process (or the resulting converted board?) will use portions of vBulletin PHP code?

And if there are any problems, use the support-topic (see the link in my signature) to get help.
The conversion software is very mature though and I expect no problems.

Looks like your disk is full and/or MySQL database quota is exceeded. Search tables are pretty big when you have lots of posts.
