I have no idea how much database changes were involved between version 3 and 4.
If you can send me a database schema (no data please) I could have a quick look if it's possible. (Don't be too excited though, it's probably too different).

Hi,

I have a vBulletin 3.8.4 forum running on hoster one.com.
I want to migratie this to phpBB. However, I can have only 1 MySql database, which is currently being used by vBulletin.
Is it possible to install phpBB *into the same database*?

Sounds like a bad plan, but maybe if the table names are mutually exclusive it could work?

Opper.

I haven't tried that way, but if you give a different prefix there won't be any clash

Hello everyone!

I'm trying to convert the db of a vB 3.8.7 forum into a phpbb 3.0.13 locally, after many "Error 500" on my server.
After starting convertion, everything seems to be right, but then, I get a general error after this step:

Here's the error in question:

What does it mean and more importantly, how do I fix it? xD

Thx!

I believe the vb converter for phpBB 3.0 is no longer maintained, and broken for all the recent versions (vBulletin >= 3.5). That's why I had to write a new one for phpBB 3.1

As mentioned above the importer from vb to phpbb 3.0.x is no longer working.
You can import to 3.1.x using: viewtopic.php?p=14050281#p14031506

Locked

Return to “[3.0.x] Convertors”
