Re: General Error SQL ERROR [ mysql4 ]

Hi, I'm getting a similar error. I've had a board at http://orangecow.org/board for years. I didn't personally change anything, but am now getting this error: General Error SQL ERROR [ mysql4 ] mysql_connect function does not exist, is mysql extension installed? [] An sql error occurred while fetchi...

Updating 3.0.11 to 3.0.12

My board was operating oddly today, not letting me change the Halloween theme I'd installed back to the normal one. I decided to update from 3.0.11 to 3.0.12. However, I screwed up in doing so. I downloaded the complete 3.0.12 package and uploaded it over my old files, rather than just getting the u...

Help with Christmas style

Hi there. I need a few pointers here. Every year I change my board, for December, into a gaudy and hideous Christmas style. It used to be green - this year it's a red style based on the "Yule" style. http://www.ffrevolution.com/board I'm seeing some red text here for the usernames of administrators ...

Larger images, scroll bars

Hi there. I'm converting my old IPB board to PHPBB 3. I wanted to keep the distinctive look it had, and so spent last night painstakingly recoloring the prosilver skin to a tan color. I also recolored all the forum images. What I need now is the spacing to use larger forum images. The images that sh...

Re: Need help writing ipb13-to-phpbb3 convertor (for pm conv)

Thank you. I was able to get BigDump started, but it stops importing the information after about 3 seconds. Timeout. Again. You gave me a small script that stopped the other importer from timing out --- Is there a script I can put in to stop BigDump from timing out? EDIT: I figured it out. There's a...

Instead of making it a transparent GIF, try making it a JPEG with that background color.

Re: Need help writing ipb13-to-phpbb3 convertor (for pm conv)

The local board is working fine. I pruned the users, though it took several tries - a ton of users had to be pruned, and the program took about an hour to do it! Anyway, I'm trying to use BigDump to upload the local board's SQL to the actual web server ... but I get this .... Processing file: phpBB3...

Re: Need help writing ipb13-to-phpbb3 convertor (for pm conv)

UPDATE: Giving up on this script, I used the older script still available on this website that converts IPB 1 to PHPBB2. The results were a million times better - all the posts by Wrenny, Will Tasker and Guests were preserved. I haven't spotted any problems yet. I'm going to try to convert to PHPBB3...

Re: Need help writing ipb13-to-phpbb3 convertor (for pm conv)

So after an entire day and night puttering around with this, I've got a converted message board running on my hard drive -- That's just as fuck ed up as my original install was. No changes there. Tons of missing posts and missing members. It's the script that's at fault here, lads. Looking directly ...

Re: Need help writing ipb13-to-phpbb3 convertor (for pm conv)

I attempted to run MAMP and XAMPP on my Mac. Whoever wrote those tutorials clearly did not have Macs in mind, as none of the instructions match or work. (There's no FAQ for the Mac version of XAMPP and very little documentation.) XAMPP is a very weird program requiring me to type commands into Termi...

Re: Need help writing ipb13-to-phpbb3 convertor (for pm conv)

I'm not surprised it's timing out, if it's given the option to. It's timing out when asked to prune a huge amount of users (something like a thousand) at once, or to fix the search index from scratch. I've had my forum for 6 years so there's a fair amount of posts. I'll try it offline .... sigh .......

Re: Need help writing ipb13-to-phpbb3 convertor (for pm conv)

Hi Dicky. Thanks, though that doesn't exactly fit my problem. I've already put that script into the install-converter to fix the timeouts there, just to make it run. These timeouts are occurring when the board is already installed. Can I change timeout settings on an already installed board, so that...

Re: Need help writing ipb13-to-phpbb3 convertor (for pm conv)

Results were exactly the same when I reinstalled. Many important posts still missing. Smilies seem to have carried over fine. My user, tygerbug, did not carry over once again of course. I registered a new user as tygerbug, and gave him admin privileges using PhpMyadmin. I am attempting to prune all ...
