There is a WBB 1.1 convertor to phpBB2, but I doubt it will work for you. i think the only way you are oging to do it, is convert WBB to SMF then convert to phpBB. i recommend that you convert to phpBB3, not phpBB2.

Ah ok thank you,
and where can i find the Converter which converts to SMF?
And what is SMF???


And another question:
Is phpBB3 better than phpBB2???
I think there are more better Mods and so on for phpBB2?

SMF = Simple Machines Forum
You will need to install SMF in order to convert WBB to SMF. SMF install.
The convertor for WBB to SMF, Convertor

The convertor for SMF to phpBB3, [BETA] SMF 1.1 to phpBB3 Convertor
The convertor for SMF to phpBB2, [SUPPORT] SMF 1.1.1 to phpBB2

phpBB3 is more advanced than phpBB2 and has more features. For a feature comparison, Features.
phpBB2 may have more MODs available at the present time, but that is only because phpBB2 has been around a lot longer than phpBB3. There are more MODs becoming available for phpBB3 every day.

Support for phpBB2 will be ending 1 January 2008.

Thank you for your help.
But i can´t find a converter which converts WBB Lite !2! to SMF.
There is only a WBB Lite 1 to SMF and a WBB 2 to SMF.
Or is the WBB 2 the right one?

I have no idea. I am not familiar with WBB or the convertor.
