Could anyone tell me if there is a convertor available to migrate over from Webwiz 9.51 to phpBB 3.0?

I have recently installed the software and am keen to move my present forum to the software but do not want to start the forum from scrtach if possible.

Thanks in advance

ok, well that will be one issue, I know when i looked at converting mine to phpbb i had access to, and found a access to mysql convertor online somewhere, but i never did try it,

but phpbb runs from mysql, not access, so you may want to check with your host that you have a mysql DB

There is a convertor for Webwiz 7.9 to phpBB2, Help converting webwiz 7.9 (ASP) to phpBB 3.0, then you can convert the phpbB2 to phpbB3. The Webwiz 7.9 convertor will probably have to be updated to work with Webwiz 9.51
