Re: 2 to 3 convert error: Unknown system variable 'Names' 1193

Ok.. good so far..

Copying my old 4.0 to a new 4.1 then pointing the conversion to the new db got me past the NAMES error and I'm converting now.. crossing fingers..

hopes this helps others migrating older 2.x boards.

Re: 2 to 3 convert error: Unknown system variable 'Names' 1193

I checked my old db.. it was mysql 4.0 and my new target db is 4.1

I'm copying over my old 4.0 into a new 4.1 db and will try to run the phpbb restore function. perhaps, the issue about 4.0 not dealing with NAMES will go away.. time will tell..

Re: Keep getting this message when converting

Had another thought.. I tried to use the "restore" function in 3.03 (the version I installed yesterday). It says there are no items yet.. I tried playing my old "phpbb_db_backup.sql" in the "store" folder too.. It doesn't see that format. Any ideas? Thought it would com...

Re: Keep getting this message when converting

Did anyone figure this out? I just got the same response when trying to move my old 2.X to new 3. I entered all the old database information from old information. The existing database is still on my host. Check it. Installed 3 with success. And then used the upgrade tab and went though all steps Go...
