Re: Conversion from phpBB2 to anything new

Thanks, I'll try that process. Some of the old mods/exts are causing issues.

Cool.

I'm not going to 3.2 straight away because at least one of the extensions we need doesn't work yet.

Re: Conversion from phpBB2 to anything new

Good point. :D It looks like i can get php 5.1 for mamp v4 so might not need to install different versions (fingers crossed). Should I be able to just copy my live files into the folder structure and populate the db tables and expect everything to work? I have various MODS in my ver2 forum that I do...

Conversion from phpBB2 to anything new

I've been trying to upgrade my forum software from phpBB2 to something newer but am struggling. I have to say outright I am a phpBB admin newb, having taken ownership from someone else in the organisation so please forgive any stoopid questions. I started by installing phpBB3 and db on my website, a...
