Relative path

Post by Rex » Sat Nov 01, 2008 2:46 am

Hi, I'm converting from SMF to PHBB it is asking for the relative path to my board files.

My board files are in /public_html/

The install for PHBB is in /public_html/phpbb3/

So what would the relative path need to be?

the SMF forum is here: hollywoodforumsonline.com and the PHBB folder is here: hollywoodforumsonline.com/phpbb3. What is the relative path?

I tried ../ and that didn't work. I get this message!

Could not find path to your former board. Please check your settings and try again.

ANother question. We installed PHPBB3. Is it okay to use the SMF to PHPBB2 converter or should we be using the SMF to PHPBB3 converter..or does it matter?

Why would you want to convert to phpbb2 when support for that software is ending in two months?

This is what I tried, Brf. I tried ../ not .. I don't understand what you're saying.

Well we were going to convert to 2 because that is the only option that I see in the convert tab on the version 3 install file.

The version-3 install will not convert TO phpBB-2. it would convert FROM phpbb-2.
To convert from SMF you would have to run the convertor from this forum, not the standard phpbb one.
