yes i want to convert to phpbb from smf. i have used viewtopic.php?f=561&t=2441356 tool but i am facing errors while converting.
Code: Select all
The convertor was not able to find tables with the specified prefix. Please make sure you have entered the correct details for the board you are converting from. The default table prefix for Simple Machines Forum 2.0.x is smf_.PREFIX_FOUND
What's the prefix for the smf tables in your SMF database?
thanks managed to convert using smf prefix that i found from phpmyadmin.warmweer wrote: ↑Wed Jan 31, 2018 9:05 amWhat's the prefix for the smf tables in your SMF database?

Okay faithful users...we're attempting to restore an older backup of the database...news will be posted once we're back!
unable to go inside board to change board settings. there were error messages while converting from smf. I believe no members is imported. what should i do?
Ow, I only noticed now that you are converting SMF 2.0.15 directly to phpBB 3.2.2.
Can you provide me link of working converter?warmweer wrote: ↑Wed Jan 31, 2018 11:41 amOw, I only noticed now that you are converting SMF 2.0.15 directly to phpBB 3.2.2.
As far as I know there is no convertor which can do this directly.
You would have to look for a convertor which can convert to phpBB 3.0.x (perhaps 3.1.x) !! (read note) !! and then upgrade from phpBB 3.x.x to 3.2.1
Note that I wrote 3.2.1 (on purpose) because there are a few problems with 3.2.2 and a conversion probably won't be perfect and may cause extra conflicts in 3.2.2 (which may not be easy to solve at this time).
!! (note) !!: immediately after the conversion; before any further update/upgrade - be sure to check the functioning of the board and solve any errors (which will propagate and will make probably make it worse in later versions).
nope, I've never converted.
