Does your user table have a prefix? I have seen some vBulletin databases where some tables have a prefix and some tables don't.

With the $vb3_prefix in conf.php set to "", what are the error message you are getting now?

OK, soon at I click on SQL test it tells me:

Tables not found. Check the table prefix in conf.php
Please check that you copied the vb3_2phpBB directory in your phpBB root directory

both are correct. now what?

I did change the default prefix of vb3_ to just vb.

Does this convertor also works for vBulletin 3.6.x or only for 3.0.x?
And what about the attachments? Is there any way to keep them if the phpBB attachment mod is installed?

I just went and downloaded the converter, and read the readme.
From what I gather, it says that I need to make a local installation
on my machine at home to be able to perform the conversion...

Is that correct?
Is there no way to do this on the server the new phpBB2 board lives on?

I have a backup of the old vBulletin database uploaded to the new board's domain, if that helps.

Thanks for your time.

Best,

Weyland

The convertor does nothing to affect the jumpbox. My guess is that you have made an error in installing ezportal or some other MOD.

You need to answer why the table doesn't exist.

1) Are the phpBB tables and the vBulletin tables in the chillin_forums database?
2) Did you edit the vBulletin table prefix correctly in the convertor conf.php file?

I am incompitent and can't figure this stuff out... Meh...

I need to transfer like 150 members, all the threads, posts, smilies, etc... Nothing huge...

I am performing the transfer on my server because easyphp is out of my league... heh

It says the tables are incorrect in the conf file. Yet when I convert it does it all. When you view the phpbb forum it has everying, but you can't login, or see the posts. Yet they are technically there before you enter the topics...

Could someone do this for me? It only takes a few seconds if you know what you are doing, but I have tried it a few times and am getting knowhere...

Message me on aim: SlappyLimited

Or PM... please

You need to edit conf.php and set vb3_ as the table prefix.

My problem is that we are moving to a new vBulletin system which is on my new server host. My new home on the web is so much better, but I have a forum that is very actuve and tons of posts, and I can't lose them. So I have been trying almost everything to move all my phpBB info to the vBulletin, but for some reason it doesn't seem to actually backup all the info. Even when I just go into mySQL and dump out all the stuff to my system and then try to merge it into a new mySQL install... it still laughs at me. It spins and cranks on the big backup for an hour, then ends up being an empty database. :|

Does anyone have much experience with moving your data in this manner? I'd like to just backup all the database and then put it into a fresh phpBB install I have, but I can't seem to get a nice clean full backup that I can pump into my new phpBB board. :|

You are moving away from phpBB and going to vBulletin? The vbulletin people should be able to help you.
