I would imagine that the 1.2.x series of PunBB use the same database schema. Try the convertor for PunBB 1.2.5. It should work. If it doesn't, let me know. No harm will be done to your PunBB database so you can still use it.

After the migration to 2.0.22 the search isnt working.
Doesnt return any matches for any search.

Do i have to do something? Rebuild the search index or something?

Thanks

Yes, you have to rebuild the search index. I use Rebuild Search Index.

Do the Greek characters show properly in phpBB 2.0.22? IIRC there were some problems with converting foreign characters when converting from phpBB2 to phpBB3. You should check the phpBB3 convertors forum for possible solutions.

I finished installing this mod, and went through everyone, like normal, but now I get this:
phpBB : Critical Error

Error doing DB query userdata row fetch

DEBUG MODE

SQL Error : 1054 Unknown column 'user_id' in 'where clause'

SELECT * FROM m13_users WHERE user_id = -1

Line : 136
File : sessions.php
What's up with this?

When are you getting this error? Is it after the conversion and you are trying to use phpBB2?

What version of phpBB2 are you using?

I have convert PunBB 1.2.15 to phpbb2 everything converted successfully but users and me cant login. Also if I convert phpbb2 to phpbb3 users cant login and character encodings are fully broken.

What can I do?

There is a login.mod file included with the PunBB to phpBB2 convertor that will allow your users to log in to phpBB2. Unfortunately, this MOD has not been adapted to phpBB3 yet.

As for the character encodings, there are many topics in the 3.0x Convertors forum which discuss problems with encodings.

Anything new here ?

I'd like to convert my punBB to phpBB. I am using PunBB 1.2.16 and would like to download phpBB and convert.

There is nothing new. Use the convertor listed in the first post to convert to phpBB2.

it is normal that it jams on:
Conversion of 1537 Posts from Post 500... Ok

and it does not go on any more, and I meet with the same not 500, but less than 200 messages on my phpBB!

I was looking for a convertor from PunBB to PhPBB... With the ultimate goal in migrating
to Durpal.
I cant find a tool to migrate from PunBB to PhPBB...But I also understand there will be a problem
with all the member's passwords, because of the SHA1 Password policy.
I have some tools to migrate from PhPBB to Drupal, but I have to get my PunBB data to PhPBB first

Hi guys , I am trying to use punbb to phpbb converter however, after reading through this topic , i found that if we do not have a prefix on our punbb tables , it just wont work. Is there anyways i can make it not have a prefix? because when the guy put the option to the prefix as blank it still use the punbb_ prefix
