UBB 6.04 to phpBB

Post by jyt » Tue Jan 16, 2018 7:31 pm

Hi, I know this is very old, but I need to convert an old UBB 6.04 (2001) forum into any phpBB. I have try a few converters but so far nothing seem to work, the latest was the:

UBB.classic to phpBB 2.0.x Convertor
*
* (c) 2004, Graham Eames <phpbb@grahameames.co.uk>
* all other copyrights the property of their respective owners as acknowledged
* in the code
*
* Based upon original work by DPK, (c) 2002-2003 The Genfect Media Group <http://www.genfect.com>
*
* File version: 1.8
*/

but at first it give me error only at the step of creating posts, anyway now I reset the database in the phpBB2 and it is no longer working, plus I had to pick v.6.1.x when using the converter. ok anyone have the older version of Graham converter, the 1.0.3

previously i had error just to reset the whole thing, but what I found out is the backup using the phpbb backup was wrong, better to backup from phpmyadmin then reset the whole db, that does n't give any error, before i couldn't even create a forum manually, was getting this error "SQL Error : 1364 Field 'forum_posts' doesn't have a default value" now it's good.
