Convert XMB to PHPBB

Post by lakecumberland » Wed Jan 16, 2013 4:03 am

Can any one help convert XMB 1.9.11 to PHPBB? I read about XMB to phpBB 2.0.1 conversion script. I've try it and it converts some of the stuff but has alot of problems. So at this point i need some help.

Can you list some of the problems that you've encountered after attempting to convert to phpBB2? A user has reported some success by converting to Simple Machines Forum first then using the SMF convertor to convert to phpBB3.

I've tried to convert it to SMF but i think it is timing out on converting my topics. The forum has alot of topic and post. Its been around for 10 years. When i try to convert it from XMB to PHPBB2 it does not put the posts in the topics. All the post are there just not tied to the topic.

How many posts does your board have? You could try converting locally which should give you a lot more leeway as far as resource limits are concerned.

I have forum ~10 years old running on XMB 1.9.7.
Does anyone have a good instruction how to convert it to phpBB3.

What steps I have to take?

I would like to have test conversion forst. Have enough space. Would not like to risk.
Ready to compensate a reasonable effort.
