I successfully imported my vbulletin 4.1.3 board into phpBB 3 (the latest), but the only problem I'm having is trying to login now to the board. It also looks like all my members will encounter this same problem once the site is live again.
Here's the server info & some background info.

The conversion went very easily, I've used vbulletin for many years and I'm a vbulletin skin designer & coder so its not like I'm lost on these things...usually lol.
Any help would be great! Thanks
