When doing the smf to phpbb conversion, phpbb tables and smf tables have to be in the same database.
So....install phpBB on the same server as smf and use the smf database name, smf database user and smf database password.

Ok, when I installed the SMF it didn't create a db on my server, which is the same server that the PHPBB is on, and PHPBB has it db.

So that means that I have to move the PHPBB to the SMF folder on my server and then run the convertor? Since SMF did not installl a db or create one.

** Problem fix after talking to the support team over at SMF, there db was hosted on their end, they were not forsure the reasoning, but it was.

Hi

Hope someone can help me.

Trying to convert my data from smf to phpbb and getting the following error, have no idea what it means, any advice would be appreciated:

SQL Error : 1064 You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '-1' at line 3

SELECT messages.ID_MSG, messages.subject, messages.body FROM smf_messages messages LIMIT 3300, -1

Line : 711
File : index.php


It has converted the structure, and has correct post numbers but the structure has no data.

I am not a php programmer and would appreciate any help I can get as I need to get this converted in the next few days.

Will

OK, finally converted my smf board over to phpbb but have a few problems.

1. The quotes didn't convert over
2. the avatars are all screwed up
3. I get pages like this:

I have fumbled my way through this far, as I'm not a php programmer but any help would be appreciated.

Long time has gone since I planned to convert my SMF1.1RC2 into phpBB2 (see SMF 1.1RC2 converter). Now is the time but I'm a little bit confused:

1. In this thread here you say that the converter works only with SMF 1.0.x. Then which converter did you mean in the thread I mentioned above? This same one or some other converter?

2. Will this converter work with phpBB3? If not, have you planned on upgrading the converter to work with phpBB3? If so, is there any estimation for release?

3. As I see on the download page the converter (convert_smf.zip) is still in Beta stage, unchanged since 10/3/2005 according to the changelog. Is that correct?

An inquiry on the SMF forum shows that downgrading an SMF1.1RC1/2/3 to SMF 1.0.x is not possible (because of different database structures), so to be able to change to phpBB really depends on the ability of this converter to convert SMF 1.1RC1/2/3.

Still waiting for the version that the SMF password will work with phpBB2 as well.

Can you solve that problem?

What version of SMF? Since this is a SMF 1.0.x thread, there is a login MOD included with smf 1.0.x convertor

The convertor for SMF 1.1 RC2 is smf 1.1 RC2 convertor
There are no plans at this time for a convertor for SMF to phpBB3. There will be a convertor for phpBB2 to phpBB3, so you can do SMF to phpBB2 to phBB3, if necessary.

Thanks for this information, I must have overlooked the announcement for the smf 1.1RC2 converter.

I'm using SMF 1.1, not SMF 1.0x, and not the RC2, not RC3...
