The SMF files and database have to be on the same server as the phpBB3 files and database.

What does the backup file include? The files? The database? The files and database? You need to have at least the database backup.

When does the blank page occur?

Do you have the full install directory from the initial phpBB3 install in place?

Lawofthesnake,

It appears that you are not using the latest version of the convertor, Version b6a at http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... #p10416685

When you get it:
OPEN functions_sm11x.php

FIND at around line 1920

Code: Select all

	if ($topic_id == 0)
REPLACE WITH

Code: Select all

	if ($convert->row['ID_POLL'] == 0)

Hello. I`m trying to convert a forum from SMF to Phpbb3 (initialy was a e107, converted to SMF). Ok so, i downloaded the latest convertor for phpbb3, and now i`m stuck @ Board path.
Could not find path to your former board. Please check your settings and try again.
» ../www was specified as the source path.
I tried every combination possible..no results.

This error is killing me. What i`m supposed to do? Copy the SMF board into phpbb3 dir.?
Phpbb3 dir:
D:\wamp\www\forum\phpBB-3.0.7-PL1\phpBB3\install
SMF dir:
D:\wamp\www\smf

Sorry for my bad english.
Best regards,Dark.

It is asking for a relative path from the phpBB directory to the SMF directory. Try ../../../smf or ../../smf

The only possible reason that can happen, is that the convertor cannot connect to the database. This happens most likely because the MySQL server has become overloaded due to not enough resources to handle the conversion process. It is a problem similar to MySQL server has gone away. You could ask your host to temporarily increase the MySQL resosurces, but it is unlikely they will do that.

The best solution is to do the conversion locally. Use EasyPHP, WampServer, or XAMPP.

rohithvsn,

What is the id of your SMF Administrators group? You can find it by looking in the smf_membergroups table.

Hello Dicky!

First of all, thank you very much for your efforts to make this great conversion tool.

Here is my problem when converting my SMF 1.1.10 forum to phpbb 3.0.6

The conversion starts and then about 5 seconds later, i get this error:

Fatal error: Out of memory (allocated 9961472) (tried to allocate 3542 bytes) in /home/shaks/public_html/phpbb/install/install_convert.php on line 1293

Is there something that i might have missed? Do i need to update the SMF forum to the latest 1.1.11 version first?

Please help!
