This will work, Invision 1x convertor.

Now all you need to do is write a support ticket to Invisionfree requesting a backup of your database, for which there will be a charge.

So, this mean you'll be able to import all member info and threads to phpbb forum?

Doesn't it import only a copy of the invision forum?... or will all info be lost when you import the invision board?

The convertor will import all member info, categories, forums and topics. It will not import themes.

Passwords do not convert because of the different encryption methods used by IPB and phpBB. You and your members will have to use the "I forgot my password" link to reset your passwords.

Real Stupid question. I have Invision PowerBoard 1.3. Is this the converter to transfer the data from the Invision PowerBoard 1.3 to the phpBB forum? The reason I'm confused is that there is a mention of performing a backup and that it is difficult to get Invision to back up the files for you. Well all of my data is in my "mysql" data base. Why would I have someone else back it up for me when I can do it myself? What am I missing?

I think you are geting confused with the difference between Invisionfree and your own IPB 1.3 board. Invisionfree forums do not have access to their database and that is why they need to have Invisionfree do a backup for them.

If you have your own IPB 1.3 board on your own host, there is no need to have someone else back it up for you.

You can use the Invision 1.x convertor mentioned in this thread. It works for both Invisionfree and your own IPB board.
