Just great.

But where do I write this code ? Is it in phpmyadmin, or in the mysql dialog box ?

Are you using the ipb1.3 to phpbb2 convertor? If so you have to open the conv_posts_text.php file included in the conversion script, add the code to that file, and finally run the conversion.

some news : bbcode problem is now solved :)

new things working :
-- smileys (but i still need to empty smilies dir before conversion to remove phpbb default smilies)
-- topics lock status
-- topics pin status
-- avatars
-- [ code ] bbcode

i still need to solve :
-- private messages folders and status
-- link topics

then i will be able to release a beta version... it's a matter of a few weeks i think


(ooops i forgot : thanks codebirth :oops: )

Considering I'm not helpfull in this thread, I know I should just wait and see, but I'm too curious to know if the converter will be ready soon ?

Thanks,

Gast.

It's exactly what i'm after too :D

I've posted over in the phpbb2 conversion thread but it's a bit tumbleweedy over there!

Quick question - the datadump .sql I have does'nt seem to have any tables in it. Does anyone have a ipb v1.3 default tables file???

Need to import it using phpmyadmin before I can run the 1.3>phpbb2 converter

Cheers G

hi all.

you can download a beta version over there : https://subversion.grenouille.com/svn/i ... bb3/trunk/

either manually or with suvbersion

just put the 3 files in the $PHPBB_ROOT_DIR/install/convertors/ and you're ready to convert

it's a beta so there are still things it does no do

please try it and let me know about so that i can try to improve it

and if you can provide nice patches thew are welcome :)

It works for me. I do get an invalid security certificate which has to be accepted/confirmed.

true : grenouille.com uses its own ssl root certificate... so you need to accept it (or not... the choice is left to you)

Hi. Tried to use your converter. I immediately get this error:

Safari can’t open the page.
Safari can’t open the page “http://ffrevolution.com/board/install/i ... anguage=en” because the server unexpectedly dropped the connection, which sometimes occurs when the server is busy. You might be able to open the page later.

I assume this is some sort of server timeout, although it's pretty instantaneous. I never get this error unless my internet isn't working right, so this is very odd indeed.

tygerbug,

To overcome a server timeout, try this:

Open phpbb3/install/install_convert.php

Find:

Code: Select all

<?php
/**
*
* @package install
* @version $Id: install_convert.php 8615 2008-06-07 13:50:39Z acydburn $
* @copyright (c) 2006 phpBB Group
* @license http://opensource.org/licenses/gpl-license.php GNU Public License
*
*/

/**
*/
After add:

Code: Select all

@set_time_limit(0);
@ini_set('memory_limit', '256M');
@ini_set('upload_max_filesize', '128M');
@ini_set('post_max_size', '256M');
@ini_set('max_input_time', '-1');
@ini_set('max_execution_time', '-1');
@ini_set('expect.timeout', '-1');
@ini_set('default_socket_timeout', '-1');
Have you hugged someone today?
