I have given Up with MyBB, I spend most of my time removing spam than I do actually running the forum, even after updating to the latest security. I will never use MyBB again, it is appalling. Worst forum engine ever.

No matter what I do, It just gets filled with spam, even when the forums are locked and "registered" has no permissions to post - so that's secure :? .!

The converter doesn't work, so I am going to cut my losses and start again with a better Forum engine.

Like phpBB?

There are no ‘threads’ in phpBB, they are topics.

You mean you are trying to convert to 3.2 with a 3.1 converter and it is not working?

Hi,
now i have succesfully convert my mybb board to phpbb.
In the past i have many problems with the converter like all other users here.

i think the problem ist the script time out.
my hoster has a time-out from 120 seconds, and this is not enough to start the converting.

My first solution was to ask the hoster for more script time.
but they say no. :evil:

My second solution was to bring the board on my pc.
There are many manuals in the www, how you can install php, mysql and all the tools to install a board on a windows pc.
But it is a lot of time, and so this solutions dies after a few month. :cry:

Since we have a big board with many user and pictures, the storage was full, and i have to switch to a bigger hosting package.
in this package there was a faster cpu included.


So i make a new Start with my mybb Board version 1.8.14
And now it works. 8-)

I use the converter from this Thread and the latest stable 3.1.12 board in german.
When i start the conversion, i get many time-outs and errors. but i use the go back button in the browser and start the convert many times.
after a few times i get the messeage, that the process is in step 2 from 37.
and after a few time-outs, go backs and error messages the converting was finished.

i loged in the board, delete the old mybb groups, give the new build-in groups the rights to the boards, and everything works fine.
i thought, there must be problems, but everything works fine.

After this step, i use this german manual to upgrade to 3.2.2:
https://www.phpbb.de/community/viewtopi ... 5&t=238607

The upgade works without problems, and now the forum in online and the user happy.
Greetings Werner from germany
php3.2.2 convertered from mybb 1.8.14
