I have searched this thread and others, but cannot find a solution to my problem.
My former forum is gone, poof, no longer exists. However, I do have an sql database backup/dump.
Using Xampp, I have installed phpMyadmin, Mysql, phpBB2 on my XP home computer. All is well at http://localhost
Using phpMyadmin, I have imported the data from my former forum into the phpBB_ database. All tables can be viewed.
I have installed the Converter properly, the page opens, but I cannot get it to connect to localhost/phpbb and perform the conversion. "Could not find path to your former forum."
The "Destroy" function works perfectly, deleting the old forum tables and leaving the empty phpBB_ tables. And yes, I can easily import the deleted tables again from the backup file.
EDIT---Sorted the above, converter starts, then stumbles:
SQL Error : 1064 You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '-1' at line 3
SELECT tblThread.Thread_ID, tblThread.Message FROM tblThread LIMIT 4070, -1
MySQL client version: 5.0.45
Any advice gratefully received!
