However, when I attempt to do so, I find the following error upon executing the topics_posts_phpBB.py file:

This continues through all of the Topic IDs until the cap specified in settings.py is reached.

@mbird_2005: What converter are you using?
Need a conversion from another forum, but they won't give you the database? Try a crawler converter. If your converter isn't listed, feel free to post in that thread to ask for one.

Did you change your date/time preferences in your profile preferences (*not* in the admin panel!!)? Is the forum in phpBB3 mode?

Your date format is incorrect! It should be "2008-03-29, 19:46", but you have it set to "28.12.09 0:53". You should change this option in your *profile preferences*.

They are personal messages on the forum, not emails.

Is there a way of converting an IF forum to phpBB 3x without need to convert to phpBB 2x first?

If not, is there a reason that it is not possible to convert directly to phpBB 3x?

Thanks in advance!

There is no IF->phpBB3 converter, since I have not written one (you are welcome to contribute it, if you can).

Okay, we found a way around that issue. But, the main problem now is that there is no admin. Can you confirm that if you set up a different account before the import, that has the admin privs, then it will not be overwritten and thus you have admin available?

Importing will erase all accounts, so that won't work. In order to get a working admin account, you have two options: you can either use the phpBB Admin Toolkit to set someone as an admin, or you can configure the "groups" setting in settings.py to match your Invisionfree setup (in particular, the administrative group on the Invisionfree board should be mapped to group ID 1; the default group name is "Admin" but it may have been changed on your forum).
