if you had read even the first post that I mentioned above, you would know the answer.

there is currently no convertor.

This is the first release, so it may still be buggy. Instructions on how to use it can be found in the Convert How To stickied at the top of this forum. The convertor does not attempt to convert permissions, so you will have to set these yourself. Polls are also skipped at this time due to IPB allowing multiple questions per poll, whereas phpBB only allows one. They will be included in the next release - likely picking the first question or skipping polls with multiple questions. Please let me know if you run into any problems. :)

PS: You may wish to run it locally as it's very likely that you'll run into resource limits if tested online.

The author of the convertor seems to have gotten busy with other things.

Haven't gotten a response from him since he made it (around january?).

I don't think it works for anyone yet.

Really disappointing.

Only one person working on this (and seems to have stopped) and you can tell from posts and downloads that a lot of people really want to ditch horrible IPB for good ol' phpBB.

I hope he or someone else picks it up and finishes it.

I'm willing to help wherever I can. I have a HUGE database that's over 12 years old that desperately needs to be converted at some point.

PM or email me if you ever need a beta tester for a working (or work in progress) converter.

So does this not work? I have tried to convert many times and always failing. Seems like the author isn't updating either

I need this convertor, too.

I'm not willing to pay further for IPB. The changes to ipb 4 are not the way i want my forums run.

I am also very interested in such a converter.
Is there anyone still working on a thing like this?

For those that are having an issue with this converter, you need to have a clean install of phpBB 3.0.12 installed. This is what was used when @prototech created the converter. So the database will match the conversion properly.

Once converted, you can then log in to the ACP. You will have to generate the Search Index, as well as set forum topic permissions manually - including the ability to see them. By default the boards' visibility settings are set to no one. Once you are satisfied, you can then update the boards to the latest version and apply/create your desired style.

Hope that helps! ;)
