forumotion to phpbb3 conversion

I have been trying for the last hour to convert my friends forumotion to phpbb3 for her. But everytime I run the converter I get this error...

I know thats the cookiedata cause I copied and pasted it straight from the site into the settings file. Any help would be much appreciated.

Yes the forumotion is set to phpbb3

What kind of converter is that?

Presumably it's just a phpBB2 database so you need to install phpBB2, restore their database, install phpBB3, use the built in phpBB3 converter to run it.

If you post your problem in the Forumotion converter topic, nneonneo is more likely to see it and offer his/her help.

Sorry for the late reply: I didn't see the message on the Forumotion thread.

You seem to be missing a ' after the COOKIEDATA. The format of the COOKIEDATA variable is
COOKIEDATA='<cookie data>'
(note leading and trailing ' characters).
