There should be an option to change it in your member preferences.

If you have phpMyAdmin, just use the "import" or "SQL" command to upload the file to the database.

I really appreciate all of your help, I think I am very unlucky when trying to upload members_php_BB3.sql

i get this error:

Error
SQL query:

DELETE FROM phpbb 3users;



MySQL said:

#1064 - You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '3users' at line 1

You used the prefix "phpbb 3" but that's probably not what the database prefix is. Check the tables -- they will all start with the same thing; that's the prefix you should use.

You want to change "table_prefix" under settings.py.

Also, it would appear that you are converting to phpBB2. This converter only works with phpBB3, so you will want to upgrade first.
