I would suggest converting from SMF to myBB and then from myBB to phpBB. It is what I did however I am experiencing an error you can see in my thread here: viewtopic.php?f=486&t=2327056

I think you are trying to convert straight to 3.1 and you have to use the convertor to go to phpbb 3.0 first.

once you get it working in 3.0 you can then simply upgrade to 3.1
