Hi,

i have installed a new phpbb then i open the install center and choose the mybb converter, i insert all informations: DB-Username, passwort, path, etc. and then i start the converter and get the error message:
HTTP 500 not available

When i start the install center a second time, i get the info, that a conversion ist started and i can chose to start a new conversion or go to the started conversion. When i choose go to the started conversion i get the same http 500 error.

What's wrong?

Also getting errors. It gets most of the way converting the posts up to about 100,000 or so and then the browser returns with ERR_EMPTY_DATA. The apache log is showing a segfault. I've tried on two different servers...

MyBB version 1.8.10
phpBB version 3.1.10
php version 5.6
Apache 2.4.18

Edit: Also tried a backport of Apache 2.4.25

Edit 2: Fixed it. I managed to eventually narrow down the post it was stumbling across...
The poster had written the word "NOOOOOOOOOOOOO" in a fashion that would put Darth Vader to shame - it had 10,682 letter "O"s in it. :lol:
Interesting that that should crash Apache, mind.

assuming that conversion is tried on live web server, for the internal server errors (error 500),
recent entries in server error log should be checked to trace the cause

if you can't find server error log at web host panel or if it is empty then contact web host support

however, I'd prefer to do the conversion on a local server (web server in computer - eg. XAMPP)

I got this issue today trying to use the converter (with the updated function file)

Code: Select all

Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Class 'phpbb\db\tools' not found in /home/lethris/webapps/office_ninja/PHPBB/install/convertors/convert_mybb18.php:186 Stack trace: #0 /home/lethris/webapps/office_ninja/PHPBB/install/convert/convertor.php(210): include() #1 /home/lethris/webapps/office_ninja/PHPBB/install/convert/controller/convertor.php(370): phpbb\convert\convertor->convert_data('mybb18') #2 [internal function]: phpbb\convert\controller\convertor->convert('mybb18') #3 /home/lethris/webapps/office_ninja/PHPBB/vendor/symfony/http-kernel/HttpKernel.php(144): call_user_func_array(Array, Array) #4 /home/lethris/webapps/office_ninja/PHPBB/vendor/symfony/http-kernel/HttpKernel.php(64): Symfony\Component\HttpKernel\HttpKernel->handleRaw(Object(phpbb\symfony_request), 1) #5 /home/lethris/webapps/office_ninja/PHPBB/install/app.php(56): Symfony\Component\HttpKernel\HttpKernel->handle(Object(phpbb\symfony_request)) #6 {main} thrown in /home/lethris/webapps/office_ninja/PHPBB/install/convertors/convert_mybb18.php on line 186
I'm desperately trying to get away from MyBB - it is rubbish, spam riddled, buggy, every update I need to manually edit files to get plugins to work, templates are terrible. I do not understand how people rate it so high. It is appalling.

Thanks in advance :)

^ I believe you have seen how to use convertor

basically you should have phpBB installation (version 3.1.x) [empty board preferred] for the conversion.

Are you trying to convert to 3.1 or 3.2? Your other post is in the 3.2 forum.

This converter is for 3.1, not 3.2

Locked

Return to “[3.1.x] Convertors”
