The convertor can't find your phpBB2 tables.

phpBB2 needs to be installed and working.
The IPB and phpBB2 tables need to be in the same database.

When editing conf.php, enter your IPB table prefix, not the phpBB table prefix.

I had do that, my IPB table is ibf_ and the prefix is ibf by default
I try to install IPB with an other prefix and change if on conf.php but that didn't work.

Did you place the convertor files in the phpBB root directory, so to get to the convertor you browse to {phpBB_root_directory}/convert/index.php?

Somehow when you are running the convertor, it is looking for the phpbb table prefix and not the IPB table prefix. Make sure you are editing the conf.php file that is in the convert directory.

When you run the convertor, you are browsing to localhost\phpBB222\ib2phpbb\index.php and to browse the phpBB2 forum, you browse to localhost\phpBB222\index.php?

The IPB tables and the phpBB tables need to be in the same database and that database needs to be the database that phpBB is connecting to. Your image shows that the name of your database is ipb. I don't think that is the database that phpBB is connected to.

IPB is my Database Name for my IPB forum, phpBB222 is my Database Name for phpbb2.23, my database on wamp is the same for every forum installed, no? Just the name change?
For me they are on the same database but maybe I'm wrong.

You have two separate databases for IPB and phpBB. The IPB tables need to be in the phpBB222 database.

Erf, I thought I was on the same database since the beginning, I thought "wamp" was only one database and just the name change for database.
Thanks a lot, that works now ! :)

Last thing, the conversion works fine now but passwords after the conversion IPB to phpbb2 are not converted.
It exists a solution for converting them?

THe instructions that come with the convertor tell you how to make the passwords work.
