It is not risky for your PHP-Nuke forum. The convertor only reads from it. It doesn't write anything to it or modify it in anyway.ikvat wrote:Hi and thanks for your tool.
I'll just do a conversion test this afternoon. Is it risky for my phpnuke forum in case of problem?
This convertor is designed to work with the latest version of phpBB3, 3.0.8 as of this writing. It will work with some earlier versions, but is not recommended as you should always use the latest version. If you convert to an earlier version, you will have to update your board, so you may as well start with the latest version saving you the trouble to update.pissa wrote:As posted earlier, I got stuck with the strange error during my conversion of phpbb2 board on
my phpnuke 8.0 based site.
Can someone tell me if this converter works only with a certain version of phpbb3??
phpBB is written under the GPL license which means that anyone is free to modify and distribute it. Leaving the original copyright and authors' name in is part of that agreement. That being said, no one on the phpBB team wrote anything for the nuke Korea team, so no one on the phpBB team knows what the difference is between this convertor and the one from the nuke Korea team.pissa wrote:What's the difference between this converter vs the one included with "phpBB3ToNuke-3.0.5-Full"
package from the nuke korea team?
This forum thread has "convert_nuke.php" & "functions_nuke.php" (Where I get the error)
The other package has "convert_bbtonuke.php" & "functions_bbtonuke.php"
Copyright message seems to show both of these are from the same author..
Appreciate some clarification...
someone took over the bridge i seen it one time and downloaded it but dont remember where i got it from i would search google for it i still have the download i'll look at it to see if it says where i got itD¡cky wrote:Using 3.0.5 should not be causing the error you are getting. Either the convertor is not including all the necessary files due to improper installation of 3.0.5 or something on your server is blocking acesss to that function.
There used to be a bridge available for bridging phpBB3 to PHP-Nuke, but I believe the author has removed it It was call OSC2Nuke or something like that.
Looking at the nukekorea site, it appears that they have successfully integrated phpBB3 with PHP-Nuke and called it phpBB3toNuke so I would think you would want to go with that solution.
Why would you make those changes? There is nowhere in the instructions that says to do that.ghostgeek wrote:I downloaded the PHPNuke to PHPbb converter. I’ve changed the following lines in the nuke_converter.php file...
You get the blank screen immediately when accessing the convertor? This indicates corrupted or missing files.ghostgeek wrote:But alas all I resolve is the blank white screen.
I tried it both ways. I tried it with the default values, and it didn't work. I looked through your code and saw those fields. I figured I might need to put my info in those fields - just as config.php for PHPNuke needs to be customized.D¡cky wrote:Why would you make those changes?

I will do as you say - delete this install and do it manually. Thank you for your help!D¡cky wrote:You get the blank screen immediately when accessing the convertor? This indicates corrupted or missing files.ghostgeek wrote:But alas all I resolve is the blank white screen.
Using the one-click install provided by your host is not recommended.
1) The one-click installs install an older version of phpBB.
2) The one-click installs do not install the database according to phpBB3 standards and can cause problems.
3) Also, the one-click installs usually delete the install directory upon completion which is probably why you are getting the blank page because the install directory files are missing.
You can get and upload the install directory from the Downloads page.
I recommend that you delete the one-click install and use the phpBB package from here to install phpBB.
A 500 internal server error is usually caused by the server not having enough resources to run the convertor. Sometimes the settings can be overridden by changing the values in the /install/install_convert.php, but some hosts don't allow the settings to be overridden. The only other solution is to do the conversion locally. Use EasyPHP, WampServer, or XAMPP.ghostgeek wrote:but now I get the dreaded 500 internal server error
