Is ipb/index.php readable?
Are you entering the correct capitalization for the path?

The convertor might be looking for init.php instead of index.php. Try renaming your index.php to init.php and see if that works. If that doesn't work, there are two places in convert_ipb23.php where a test file is specified. You can comment out, or delete, those lines to bypass the file check.

ok, the converter looks for index.php and init.php i think, solved this problem, but now there is a new one:
Fatal installation error
functions_convert.php [ 1206 ]
Could not retrieve your board configuration.
i cant find a "function_convert.php" Oo?

The convertor can't find the table where your IPB configuration settings are stored. The table where you IPB configuration is stored is named conf_settings. That table is either missing or it has a different name.

I don't know what to tell you. For some reason, the convertor is not returning any rows from the ibf_conf_settings table.

Are the ibf tables and phpbB3 tables in the same database or different databases?

functions_convert.php is in the includes folder. Line 1206 is where the error is generated

what should i do before or after conversion to make auth work?
thanks for your answers.
Your auth_ipb.php appears to be corrupt. Make sure there is nothing at the beginning of the file before <?php and nothing at the end of the file after ?>
thank you it works now..

Hi,

Firstly thanks for this converter, it's saving me hours!

Since I've not seen this posted elsewhere - when I ran the converter subforums from the IPB board weren't migrated at all. Is this supposed to happen or have I done something wrong in migration?
