Is there any "stand alone" script to convert phpBB 2.0.x to phpBB3? I have searched the forum but found only one with a dead link.

Don't think I've seen one.

You might have to explain more about what the purpose would be.

why do you need one? it is already built in to the install script for phpbb3.

basically, the only thing you convert is the database. none of the files from phpbb2 are used in phpbb3.

the same is true of upgrading from 3.0 to 3.1
all new files and upgrading the database.

except for the config.php file in both cases.
