Re: [SUPPORT] SMF 1.1.1 to phpBB2

EDIT: never mind it magically worked after a third try of the installation from scratch. :lol:
Thanks for the help ;)


there must have been a third reason why this was happening. I did have both tables within one datbase and the prefix is definately "smf_"

I tried doing this from scratch again on a clean installation of the latest phpbb2 version. But it seems like phpbb2 does not work properly. After I install it and try to login as admin, phpbb just keeps redirecting me to the login without even giving me an error.

I was able to convert from smf 1.1.3 to phpbb2 but phpbb2 does not function since it does not let me log in. I am trying to login with the new phpbb2 admin login that was created when I installed the forum so I don't see why there could be an error. Could this be due to an .htaccess file that might be missing?

The admin you created when you installed phpBB gets deleted when you convert. You need to login with your SMF admin account. Be sure you have followed the instrucitons in login.mod and made the modifications to login.php so your password will work.

The link works fine for me.
The SMF 1.1.1 convertor will work for SMF 1.1.4

phpBB2 has to be installed and running. The convertor files go into the phpBB2 directory.

Don't use the smf prefix. You have to use a different prefix. The default table prefix for phpBB is phpbb_

Doesn't work!

Everytime I run:
http://mysite.com/phpbb/convert/index.php

it shows a blank page or an error page.
Internet explorer says programming error or something.

And My SMF dictionary is in http://mysite.com/smf

It says I get a HTTP 500 Internal server error

How come I can't get to the phpbb/convert page? All files are uploaded correctly. :cry:

hi to everyone,
i'm trying to convert smf to phpbb2.
When i insert:

Table prefix smf_
Forum address http://127.0.0.1/home/unieconomia/phpBB2/
(this is the http address of your former forum)
Forum path ../phpBB2/
(this is the relative -to phpBB main directory- server path to your former forum)

After i click to convert and this is what appears to me

Code: Select all

Errore Generale 
Could not find path to your former forum. Please check your settings and try again 
obviously i'm working in local, the address i'm sure are right.. what's the problem?
Thank you very much

Shaythong,

Does phpBB itself work?

"Internet explorer says programming error or something." doesn't help in diagnosing the problem.

SMF doesn't have to work, but the smf tables do have to be in the phpBB database.


mklcst,

The convertor is looking for the relative path from phpBB to SMF. Obviously, ../phpBB2/ is not correct for the relative path since that is where phpBB is.
