wbb 1.0.2 (burning board lite) 1.0.2 -> phpBB2

Post by xephor » Sat May 14, 2005 1:28 pm


I decided to use the phpBB instead of wbb (aka burning board lite) 1.0.2 :) Well now I need a converter for this special problem.

As far as I understand and tried I am not able to use the converters from wBB 1.1.1 or 1.2 to phpBB and I was not able to find a converter for my scenario. :cry:

Does anybody know such a convertor? Or is semebody already working on such a converter and might need help?

I believe the only Burning Board convertor phpBB has is a Burning Board 1.1.1e to phpBB version. So I don't know if that will work on Burning Board 1.0.2 but you can try it. You can download the convertor in either a ZIP file or GZIP file. Both are below. Hope that helps.

Thanks Sasarai, I gave it a try.

Unfortunately it does not work. I did take a short look at the converter and my database - it seems at least the tables object2board and object2user are not used in wBB 1.0.2 :cry:

I'm getting the following error:

Could not find path to your former forum. Please check your settings and try again

I have filled in the following information:

Table prefix bb1_
Forum address http://forum.advance.homelinux.net/
Forum path ../forum/

I have created a virtual server forum2.advance.homelinux.net for the phpBB installation.

The converter should work for version 1.1.1e, but i'm using 1.0.2, thought this was an older version
