the latest version from the trunk (0.4.dev) is always giving me the following error, even though the path worked with previous versions of the converter and i know that the path is correct:Any ideas why it stopped recognising my IPB directory?Could not find path to your former board. Please check your settings and try again.

If you getting that message directly after entering the database settings and then the page comes up again to enter your database settings, then you are entering the incorrect path.RavenMokel wrote:Directly after the first screen with the database and path settings for the conversion.
This is really strange, since it once worked using exactly the same path (i used my browsers form completion to fill in exactly the same value), but anyhow (all paths slightly anonymised):D¡cky wrote:If you getting that message directly after entering the database settings and then the page comes up again to enter your database settings, then you are entering the incorrect path.
What are the url's to your phpBB3 board and your IPB board?
The converter accesses the old forums via the filesystem, there is no such concept as a domain there, only files and folders (with owner, groups, permissions etc. of course). So why should it matter under what domain the boards are accessible from the outside?D¡cky wrote:The boards have to be in the same domain. The convertor will not work across different domains or even across different subdomains.
Code: Select all

I would like to convert our charitable forum from IPB 1.3 to phpBB3 but the conversion process is slightly confusing to me, how do I upload BB3 to the same database as the existing forum, or do you mean the database's must both reside on the same server?maat wrote:Ok i suppose you're using the same db for source and destination.
