[SUPPORT] PHP-Nuke to phpBB

Post by D¡cky » Thu Jul 07, 2005 3:31 am

This convertor will transfer the following:
  • Categories
  • Forums
  • Topics
  • Posts
  • Users
  • Groups
  • Private messages
  • Topics watch
  • Polls
  • Authorizations
  • Banned list
  • Ranks
  • Censored words
  • Search words
  • some configuration settings
*************************************************************

This is an adaptation of the script by jonny lamb and jaymer
Fixes include:

* Groups convert properly and all users are assigned to groups
* Adjust user_level to match phpBB user levels
* Set PHP-Nuke anonymous user_id of 1 to phpBB anonymous user_id of -1 for topics and posts. (Sets posts by guests and deleted users correctly.)
* Add code so script will run with php Register Globals = Off

*************************************************************
PHP-Nuke to phpBB is now a complete transfer tool. There is no going into the database after to get things working correctly. At the very most, you may have to make some minor adjustments in the Administration Control Panel.

This was written for PHP-Nuke 7.7, but should work for most older versions, including 6.x versions

Download link. Version 1.2.13

The instructions say that the install of phpBB and PHP-Nuke have to be on the same server but in my case I am relocating. So...this is what I would do (unless someone tells me it's wrong)...install a freash install of phpBB on the same server as PHP-Nuke, install the same version of phpBB on the new server, run the converter on the old server to get the phpBB database set up with my old user list from PHP-Nuke, then copy the newly converted phpBB database to the new server and presto...everything works...right?

We hope everything works. You do have the procedure correct so you should be all set.

Very cool...now for the part of the question that is REALLY newbie like. I imagine that it is a good idea to back up the database before hand just in case. Should I use phpMyAdmin to do this (in which case I really don't know how) or can I use my hosts cPanel database backup option? Would there really be any difference or is a backup a backup?

Thanks in advance...

I am not that familiar with cPanel, but I assume that a backup is a backup.

To do a backup with phpMyadmin, open phpMyAdmin, select your database and click the Export tab at the top. The SQL button and the Structure button should be checked. Under the Data section, check Complete Inserts. Check the Save As File and click Go. The file will save to your computer.

new question

Post by digiraver » Tue Jul 12, 2005 7:19 pm

ok...new question. Does this converter work with phpBB 1.x or 2.x or both? I am assuming that it is for 2.x (what is the newest version? 2.0.16?) but if it is for the older version please let me know...Thanks...

It will be for 2.0.x

Version 1.x has not been supported for a very long time and should not be used on a live site.

Okie Dokie...installed a freash copy of phpBB into it's own directory and set up the basics (pretty much nothing...it was totally freash with the 'Test Forum 1' and all). Then backed up my PHP-Nuke database. Then uploaded the converter script to my phpBB directory. I ran the script and entered the correct information and this is what it said:

Couldn't find nuke_bbsearch_wordmatch
1146: Table 'digirave_backup.nuke_bbsearch_wordmatch' doesn't exist

SELECT * FROM nuke_bbsearch_wordmatch

The conversion has been a success


However...it doesn't appear that anything actually converted successfully. The only tables that contain anything are:

phpbb_config
phpbb_groups
phpbb_sessions
phpbb_smilies
phpbb_themes
phpbb_themes_name
phpbb_user_group

Any ideas?

You should have 3 word search tables, nuke_bbsearch_results, nuke_bbsearch_worklist and nuke_bbsearch_wordmatch. Do you have these tables?

As for the empty tables, you did import the backup into your digirave_backup table?
I don't know what to say about the "Cannot modify header information" problem. I can't duplicate the problem. There may be something wrong with your phpBB installation.

What version of php and MySQL are you running?
Are you doing the conversion on your local machine or on the webhost?

Hello,

I've tried the converter as well... followed all steps as mentioned in the readme. I get exactly the same output as Digiraver.

I do get some more tables into the database, but they are all empty.

PHP 4.3.11
Apache 1.3.33
PHPnuke 2.6
phpBB 2.16 (new install)

Very strange happenings. I will see if I can get some debugging routines working in the script so we can see what is going on.

What database setups are y'all using.

Are Nuke and phpBB in the same database or separate databases?
Are you importing into the phpBB database that phpBB installed?

Nuke database:
name: rknuke
prefix: nuke_

phpBB database:
name: forum
prefix phpbb_

same server, hosted by myself. Importing into the database that phpBB installed.

Got a bit further by having it all sitting in one DB, but not there yet.

It seems like all forums have been imported but users and gruops are still empty.

Even the forums are all listing and so are the number of posts in them, when you open up the forums they are empty.

And the dates for the lasts post is 1 jan 1970.

The script also finished on a blank page rather then a fail or success.
