the error comes up when I install the new phpbb.
I think the way to restore the BB is:
- install a new phpbb 2.x ( I think the board ran on 2.0.18) I have a 2.0.16 (is this maybe the issue?)
- use phpmyadmin and import the databsedump from the old database into the new database
however i cant get postgre to work with the new install (will not get past the install with error above) and also I can not import the postgre databse with phpmyadmin.
i think the issue must be withpostgre and I am trying to convert the database dump to mysql. but the link given above does not convert the databse. I hesitate to purchase the converter software because i think the main issue is with postgre itselsf.
need serious help .. my board has been down for 6 weeks
