What do I have to do?
P. S. If it's possible, can you tell me how to merge databases? I'm new to all this stuff...
While not impossible this is not an easy task. You may want to search for options of merging IPB or see if you can find something for merging phpBB2. In other words see if anything is available that can be used along the conversion process.P. S. If it's possible, can you tell me how to merge databases? I'm new to all this stuff...
No, it's running on PHP 5.6.30 (and couldn't be upgraded due to hosting provider settings).
Looks like it does, I have tried to test locally ib2phpbb convertor made in 2005. And it failed due to usage of MySQL.Is the convertor using specific MySQL code? In this case you can try to "convert the convertor" (lol) to MySQLi. Which is possible as well.
To reiterate you can download an older version of XAMPP, one from around 2005 should probably be where to start. The only trouble you might have is getting it to run under a newer OS.
Thanks. I'll try the 1.5.0 version under Windows Server 2012 R2.
I didn't use it earlier, because I set up all things (MySQLi, Apache, etc.) manually. But thanks again for a tip!If you are already using XAMPP you can run different versions of it.
Are you confident with PHP?
Code: Select all
You will laugh at me, but i forgot to modify the converter's configuration file! It had prefix that differs from ibf_ So, it's my fault.thecoalman wrote: ↑Thu May 17, 2018 10:37 pmI have no idea how this would work with Windows Server because I'm not familiar with it but on regular Windows machine you are going to install XAMPP in the root of the drive, e.g. C:\xampp Inside the XAMPP folder is htdocs folder which is the root of the domain.
