I see some inconsistencies. In your previous message you said that your database name is islamic_vb. In this message you have islamic_bb2.
In your previous message you said your table prefix is _vb. In this message you have vb_

Make sure you have entered the correct configuration settings.

Also the vBulletin database tables have to be in the phpBB database.

The two main reasons for posts not displaying, is that they either didn't convert or the members didn't convert.

Using phpMyAdmin, check the phpbb_posts and the phpbb_posts_text tables that they have the same number of rows andt he same number of rows as the vb_post table. Then check that the posterid's for the posts exist in teh phpbb_users table.

The convertor does work for vb 3.6.x. It sounds like you may be having server timeout issues. You should try doing the conversion locally, using EasyPHP, WAMP or XAMPP.

I don't know for sure if it works with 3.6.8 PL2. AFAIK it works with previous version of 3.6.x

Attachments will be lost and possibly PM's

Can the attachments be converted? I'm using vBulletin 3.6.8 PL2, and will use phpBB 2.0.22+Attachment Mod 2.4.5.
Thanks! Happy new year!

Anything is possible with enough desire, time and money. I had started on it, but never finished it.
