Could not find path to your former board.

Post by mattbussey » Wed Apr 01, 2009 6:04 pm

I've been scouring the forums and it seems that others have had this issue but none of the suggestions that worked for others seems to work for me. I'm converting from version 2 to phpbb3. My old forum is at:

The new install of phpbb3 is currently located at:

I've tried every single combination to get the relative path to the former board but nothing is working. The default is "../forum" which didn't work. I've tried using one dot, two dots, going back a few more levels like "../../app/forum" and stuff like that but I'm not having any luck. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

../forum would be correct.

Can you post the real addresses of both boards please?
