Hi, and thanks for a great forum software; I've been using it one one of my domains and it does everything I need. Now I have an interesting problem. I have a 5 year old install of Ikonboard on a very busy fly fishing board. We have 3,500 members and a huge number of posts; http://www.sexyloops.co.uk/cgi-bin/theb ... nboard.cgi
Some of my other scripts now require updating to MySQL5 and I have no idea if Ikonboard supports this update, and it appears that they have hit the wall now anyway. So the time has come to convert to new forum software.
From what I have seen, I need to export the database to TAR. Run a conversion script on a PC (I'm on a Mac!, but I can borrow one), install phpBB2, and then upgrade to phpBB3. The threads I've read on the subject are reasonably old, and I apologise for covering the same topic again!!
Does this process still apply? I also read that there is a password issue? This could be a problem for us since some of our users will undoubtedly by using different email addresses now.
Many thanks for any help/insight you can give, and I apologise for rehashing an old topic!!
it's all about to happen..
