Re: Python MyBB 1.2.9 ---> phpBB2.0.22 convertor

Hm. Try

Code: Select all

conversion_path = 'C:\\Documents and Settings\\xxxx\\Desktop\\'
(note the last two \\)

Edit: Yeah, the two missing \\ are the problem.
I've updated the script - it now has some basic check routines for path and file name and it can handle missing \\ ;)

I hope that it works now....

Re: Python MyBB 1.2.9 ---> phpBB2.0.22 convertor

The script isn't meant to run on the server! ;) You need to make a database dump, save it to your local machine, install python on your local machine and run the script as described above (on your local machine ;) ). As most hosters don't support python (which is a shame) and as I needed a script fo...

Mybb to phpbb3

So here we go: After running the phpbb3 conversion script on your phpbb2 database you should be able to see all the forums and posts. If not, something went wrong. So if everything seems to be fine and you try to login - well, it doesn't work :P The following is a bad hack, but it works (I'd be happ...

Re: Python MyBBB 1.2.9 ---> phpBB2.0.22 convertor

Well, did it work for you? The password issue: phpbb2 stores all password as the following: md5(password). Which means, the password is encrypted using the md5 algorithm. Mybb stores them like that: md5(salt+md5(password)) The problem is that there is no way to decrypt it. So the only chance is to a...

Re: Converting to phpBB from MyBB

If you really want to migrate you can try my python script (right now it does not import attachments, settings, banlist): click

But I can't give any support for the next 5 days as I'm on holidays :P

Re: Python MyBBB 1.2.9 ---> phpBB2.0.22 convertor

I've found a solution for the passwords. background information The converter creates a new table which is called prefix_mybb_passwords and which contains the fields username, (mybb)password, salt, new_pw_set. If the user logs in and $password != $row['user_password'] it will create the mybb pw and ...

MyBB 1.2.x ---> phpBB2.0.22 convertor

NOT SUPPORTED ANYMORE! Upgrading to phpbb3 works fine. 28.2.08: new script version # killed a minor bug # gui included - not tested with Windows, so it is disabled by default. Enable it if you want to give it a try by setting gui to True in the script. ------------- Note: passwords aren't really co...
