phpBB to vB

Post by l3lueMage » Wed Apr 04, 2007 9:40 pm

Will the RC1 of phpBB be able to transfer vBulletin to it's databases? or will we have to wait for the full complete version?

You will have to wait until somebody creates a conversion script which almost certainly will not be before RC1 - I doubt if the phpbb team will be creating this script in the foreseeable future.

A script will be made to convert VB to phpBB3… sometime after phpBB3 goes gold… though we don't know who will make it.
The conversion scripts for other forum softwares to phpBB2, if I'm not mistaken, were user submitted… so you would have to wait until somebody makes one or you could make it :)

Otherwise, your best bet would be to convert to phpBB2 using one of the available converters… then convert to phpBB3.

You do have the option of converting your VB to phpbb2 (if a suitable converter is available) and then converting phpbb2 to phpbb3

And that option should continue to be available as well. All of the converters that go into phpBB2 have been tested and used for many years.
