Yabb to PhpBB3 Conversion

Post by forfun » Fri Apr 27, 2007 9:47 pm

Hi all,
I know it may be too early to ask about this mod, but I have no problem to run PhpBB3 at all. It's running flawlessly. But I still wonder if I can use the available yabb-to-PhpBB2 conversion to convert from yabb to PhpBB3, or anyone has any info about any available conversion for yabb-to-PhpBB3
Thanks MUCH in advanced for any info.

It is too early. ;) -- MODs at this stage are not supported.
Running phpBB3 live is also not supported until RC1.

The best method to convert from yabb to phpBB3, would be to use the convert yabb to phpBB2 using the existing yabb->phpBB2 converter, then convert that phpBB2 to phpBB3.
You won’t be able to use the yabb->phpBB2 converter to convert directly to phpBB3.
The structure of phpBB3 is too different.

I suggest you wait until phpBB3 RC1 is out, convert your board to phpBB2 and then upgrade to phpBB3 ;)

This won't work since the conversion from Yabb to phpbb2 doesn't unencrypt the passwords thus you have to make a modification to the phpbb2 login.php to make it work thus since phpBB3 doesn't have a login.php you won't be able to make the needed changes so everything will convert but members won't be able to login.
