when i run this convertor what will be the path to my main forum my smf is installed at www.123.com
and phpbb is installed at phpbb.123.com/phpbb3
So your board will be at phpbb.123.com/phpbb3. You can move it after the conversion if you want.
would u also tell whne i convert will where will it store the converted data the db used by phpbb or the one used by smf because i first want to convert to phpbb then get to know a bit before making it my default board
The convertor will not affect your SMF board. They will use different databases, and will not conflict with each other.
ron273: That might cause some difficulties, because username_clean is supposed to be ... "clean" -- meaning lower-case with no utf8 symbols. The first query setting the login_name to the username should not be a problem.
The way I wrote the convertor, users should be able to log in either with their SMF real name or their public username. I'm a little confused why that won't work for you
