Note that this converter has been re-uploaded several times. Thus, the download count may not be accurate. As of time of writing, it has been downloaded over 2100 times.
Please note: I provide no warranty on this software, but I will be happy to provide support in this thread.
Converters for Forumer, ZetaBoards, SuddenLaunch and several other forums are provided. Please read the Instructions.txt file in the corresponding folder. I've tried my best to make these understandable, but any comments or suggestions on any part of the process are welcome.
The phpBB2 converters produce SQL which should be compatible with phpBB 2.0.22.
The phpBB3 converters produce SQL which should be compatible with phpBB 3.0.7.
The converters are NOT written in PHP, they are written in Python. This means that Windows users will need a current distribution of the 2.x Python programming framework, available at http://python.org (the Windows Installer link on the left is the most direct way to get it). Linux and Mac OS X should come with Python interpreters pre-installed. Please note that the converters are not yet compatible with Python 3.x.

Forumer can be converted using the corresponding converter for your board type (ForumerIPB, phpBB2 or phpBB3). Most phpBB2 and phpBB3 forums can be converted using the corresponding crawler.
General instructions: You will need Python 2.5, 2.6 or 2.7 (3.0 and 3.1 will not work; the usual symptom is that the converter starts up and immediately quits). Unzip the entire package, and run the converter you want. Alternately, you can unzip the converter you want (e.g. Proboards), then copy the common.py file into that converter directory.
Another utility split_sql.py is provided to split large SQL files into smaller ones; use this if your SQL import fails because the file is too large.
