Yabb to phpbb conversion

I have been trying to convert my old Yabb forum to phpbb. I have downloaded the convert file and got as far as converting but every time I get to the Welcome to the YaBB to phpBB 2.0 Conversion Tool and fill in the details I get the following message:

Connecting to server
Connected to
Selecting database
Database GreeceForum selected
Parsing YaBB Memberlist file

Warning: fopen(C:/yabb/Members/memberlist.txt) [function.fopen]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/fhlinux173/g/ on line 136
!Cannot open Members/memberlist.txt. Make sure the file exists, and be sure you entered the right YaBB install dir on the previous page!

I have checked and I do have memberlist.txt under the Member folder and am displaying the path correctly. Would anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

Thank you,

well, wherever it is, the file is not where the script is looking for it.

you will either need to put the files in the correct places with the correct names, etc.


change the script to look for them wherever you have put them.

I have just checked with my web hosting company and they say that the fopen command has been disabled on their shared hosting platform for security reasons.

Could any one point me other direction on how to convert. It's once obstacle after another :?

Thank you!
