I'm not sure to be honest. If you are repeating something that I didn't read, you can link to some thread.
I'll tell you what I've done:
1) created a new installation of phpbb in a directory apart from smf on the same server.
2) uploaded the universal converter thing with the smf>phpbb converter in the right subfolder of that.
3) typed in smf_ for the prefix, http://_________.ca/forum/ for the OLD SMF forum url, and ../forums/ for the new PHPBB forum.
4) clicked that box with the SMF 1.0.X, and then convert.
that's when I got the perplexing error.
Thanks for the continuing help!

I have installed phpBB right alongside the smf forum (http://www.mong.tv/smf and http://www.mong.tv/phpBB) so my path should be "../smf/" correct? I'm still getting the timeout error.
Do'h... Even though I've been getting the page not found error it looks like some of the database has been converted. My phpBB install is showing the forum names and thread/post counts and the member groups are there. The forums security even looks like it got transfered correctly since guests only see the news forum.
But it has not moved the members over and it looks like the actual threads and posts have not moved either.

smf = 1.0.5
phpBB = 2.0.17
MySQL = 4.0.25
PHP = 4.3.10
I have duplicated my smf database to a new one for the conversion, and installed the phpBB database to it. The only forum I have using this new database is the phpBB, my SMF forums is pointing to it's original database.
Code: Select all
$phpbb_root_path = './../';
Code: Select all
$phpbb_root_path = '../';
