Hey all, any (fairly simple) way to convert my Web Wiz Forum database to the phpBB database? I have the WW database on my laptop and its in Access format.

For one the Accessdb would have to be transferred to a DB format which phpbb can use (MySQL is probably the easiest - there as simple OBDC connector).
I know of no WebWiz convertor so I guess it would require some thinking through. You could start by having a look at the structure of the Web Wiz database, if it's similar to a phpBB version then it might be possible to convert.
