Hi, I am trying to convert vB 3.8.4 and I keep getting this error, I was getting a different error till I read through this thread and it recommended I removed all the vB hacks (plugins) which I did but now I get this error and I have no idea what it is I need to do.
SQL ERROR [ mysqli ]
Unknown column 'attachment.postid' in 'field list' 
Look in the vBulletin attachments table. There should be a column that tells vB which post an attachment is attached to. It may be named differently than what the convertor is looking for.
O.k I have looked at the fields and I have Attachmentid, contenttypeid, contentid, userid, dateline, fielddataid, state, counter, posthash, filename, caption, reportthreadid, settings. I really do not see what one it could be or if it was here where would I have to go to change it. Sorry for being a complete noob at this but these are the first forums I ever ran lol. Also I was wondering if there was anyway I could just create the field and have it null just so I could make it through the rest of the conversion. Loosing some attachments is really the least of my worries. (accounts and actual posts on the other hand...)
[EDIT] Actually I believe it may be contentid but in what file do I have to edit postid?
[EDIT2] O.k I found where to change it in convert_vb30.php I changed it and now it saying attachment.filedata is causing the error. What is filedata making reference to so I know what to change it to?
[EDIT 3] Never mind all that I ended up commenting out 4 lines in the conversion file that referenced fields I did not have, I got well beyond that step all the way to the zebra part and I got that post id error I remember reading about that a few pages back so I should be good to go.
