Converter

Post by James55 »

Anyone know if this can be used to convert my invision board to the phpbb board in phpnuke?. If so what directory would I upload the files to as there is no root folder for the phpbb.

Well as Invisionboard is now charging for their system people will be coming over to phpBB. I will see if I can cobble together a Converter for 2.0 but my php skills are somewhat lacking. There is significant changes to the database structire that I can see which will make things difficult. Hopefully if mine does not work when (if ever) it is released somebody can help and make one better.

NB: There is already a basic IPB2 convertor posted in another thread in this forum (derived from the one here), so you don't need to write anything from scratch :)

I currently have a board hosted on invisionfree.com. Is there any reason why this converter wouldn't work on those boards (I'm getting a database dump from the admin there)?

Can you post a link to that thread? I can't seem to find it by searching.

I am trying to convert my Invision 1.3 board to phpbb but it seems impossible.

I keep getting errors when i do the converting. I copied the Invision tables, and made a new sql username called forums. I imported all the invision tables into this. I then granted permissions for the forums usernames to the same database that the new phpbb forum was installed to.

I run the converter, and I get errors. Please help. Also, i have set the conf.php file properly, and the prefix is definately ibf_

Here is the URL to the converting:
http://www.ps2smackdown.net/forums/ipb2phpBB/

Could someone please give me step by step instructions on how to do this. I'm pretty much a n00b when it comes to php.
