Maybe you should read the FAQ (see the first post in this topic)?

Your vB installation did not have categories or there where forums without a category. After adding a new category in the phpBB admin area, the forums will appear and everything will work.

Looks like your disk is full and/or MySQL database quota is exceeded. Search tables are pretty big when you have lots of posts.

Hey, im using the latest PHPBB 2.0.15 and need to convert a vb2x version to it. This script says my phpbb is out of date, which it isnt since its latest. Is this converter still being worked on to support the latest phpbb?

I rant his converter anyways to see what would happen. It would almost perfectly except when i go to group permissions in Phpbb, i cannt select what forums the group can access. No drop down box present, even under the advanced tab.

P.S. if this convertor is no longer being developed, does anyone know of another active project that will convert from vbulletin 2x to latest phpbb 2.0.15

Sounds like it has worked then. The group permissions are only visible if that forum has been set to PRIVATE for one or more of the permissions within the forum permissions

From the very first ost of this topic,
Matthijs wrote: ----- FAQ -----
I have phpBB 2.0.10 or higher, but I get 'Your phpBB version is incompatible with this version of the converter.'
This error message is incorrect. The conversion will work fine, just ignore the message. I will release a fixed version of my converter in due time.
The databases for 2.0.15 and 2.0.10 are basically the same. The convertor will work just fine for the newer versions of phpBB.

The forums/cats problem is probably easily fixed from the admin-panel (see also the FAQ in the first post).

You should be able to login to the phpBB forum using the Admin account from the vBulletin forum. The phpBB admin account you created during the installation of phpBB is deleted with the conversion. Email me with details if you're still unable to get in the admin panel: converter (at) matthijs (dot) net

Hi... i have only one question. I was reading this topic searching for something but i couldnt find it or any info about it. Just a post of 2003 saying that the vb 3 convertor was available in BETA version.
I Just wanted to know if the final version of Vb 3.0.x convertor to PhpBB2 2.0.17 is available already??



Thanks for your time and help!

Hi!

I have a problem when i'm starting the convertation from vbulletin 2.3 to phpbb 2.0.18.
First everything works fine but then the following error is displayed all the time:

Code: Select all

i have already reduced the '$batchsize = 30;' setting and 'define('FORCE_SAFE_MODE', 1);'

what else can i do to convert properly?

thank you

If it were me and the rest of the conversion went fine, I would use the Rebuild Search Index tool, http://www.phpbbhacks.com/download/434
