Import data from a custom forum

Post by tmilliken » Tue May 07, 2019 12:59 am

I have a forum I manage that was custom coded and I would like to migrate the data to phpBB. The current forum is on an MSSQL database. Is there a way to migrate users, topics and forums or maybe a service that could do that? I am new to phpBB.

There is no "generic" convertor to phpBB and as it is a "custom" forum then I suspect that you will need to find somebody who can write a custom convertor for you - unless you are able to do it yourself
