I'm looking to do this too, but it seems that the only good solution is to convert IPB to phpBB2 and then again to pbpBB3...

If I can't find any convertor, which converto I shoul use to have a IPB --> phpBB2?

Thanks =D

IPB --> phpBB2 convertors are here. The convertor for IPB 2.1 will work for IPB 2.1 and newer versions.

Hi Klia. Just wondering if your conversion mod still works at all? Do you have any problems with posts gaining weird characters or disappearing? What about that password issue mentioned earlier in the thread?

I have IPB2.2 and want to switch it over to phpbb3 :)

Cheers!

Should work. Tried at 3.0.0 release.

No. Only with quotes.
What about that password issue mentioned earlier in the thread?
Users should change their passwords. One of the latest RC of phpBB contains salt-generation for phpBB, but this convertor does not convert salt from IPB to phpBB-salt.

Thanks for the speedy reply :)

That's alright, I can live with that. With users changing their password though, can they login with the old one first, or do they have to click "I forgot my password" and go through that process to change it?

Anyway, I'm keen to give it a try- do you have somewhere for the conversion files with basic instructions? Sorry to be a hassle, just very keen to finally switch back to phpbb :)

I just want to say that Klia has been awesome, and the converting script Klia made worked flawlessly. I had a couple of small problems, but they weren't big, and Klia emailed me right back right away. What a champ!

So if you're wondering, Klia's conversion script works fine for IPB 2.3.x to phpBB3, except for a few things like quotes :)

lol.

I feel stupid :?


index.php?mode=convert&sub=in_progress&tag=ipb23&confirm=1

When I get to there... the page just goes blank :S
I'm getting the same blank page at the same progress. Any suggestions?

I have filled out the convert_ipb23.php file ot the best of my knowledge and I get a white page also.

My phpbb board is at forums.mydomain.net/phpbb

The files are at forums.mydomain.net/phpbb/install_/convertors/files

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

^ same question as him. So I put everything in a folder (convert and function file) but the instructions say to go to index.php, what is contained in index.php?

index.php?mode=convert&sub=in_progress&tag=ipb23

As far as I know, the files in the first page of this topic will work. If you are having a problem, read through this topic for possible solutions. If you cannot find a solution, then ask and explain your problem.
