The converter's been updated, head over to http://nneonneo.ath.cx to get an updated copy.

As for the .SQL files, just import them into phpMyAdmin.

OK, please update the common.py file from the new converter package, too. Then it should work, I think.

EDIT: alternately, you can just grab the all-in-one package from the first post; the settings haven't changed so you can copy your modified settings.py over the one in the package.

Version 0.2.7, posted about 20 minutes ago? And you are still getting the same error, with the same convert_error.log?

well, I've made a slight change to forum name, and it's downloading topics now, but with every topic ID it tells me that(Error: topic is empty) :?

Addition:
The forum toics are written in Arabic, right to left language as you may know, Has this something to do with the problem?

OK, let me have a look at your forum. I haven't been able to test the converter on a non-english forum.

EDIT: grammar fail

In your profile options, can you try setting your language to "English"? The converter does not recognize many of the Arabic forum text. It should still convert post text correctly.

actually in the moment u were posting your reply I was retrying doing this.. the same thing, my profile is in english, and now I made the whole forum language is English, but still posts are naturaly in Arabic and most of user's names..
user's names, categories and forums were successfully converted, the problem was in topics and posts..

The last thing to check is the date format -- as it says in the Instructions file, the converter expects a specific date format. You should make that change in your profile options (not admin options).

Hello nneonneo and thank you very much for your patience, 2 days ago I was able to get posts and topics database, after modifying forum data in the on line forum and in the settings file from the begining with different data, I don't know what happened exactly but the important thing for me that it worked :D ...

I encountered a strange problem, I imported *topics_posts_phpBB3.sql* to my database along with members and categories and forums.. all categories, forums and members were successfuly merged in the forum, but topics and posts written in arabic did never appear , you just find a blank post or blanc topic title with blank posts inside, but when there are english words they appear ..
I made it many times with no use :?

This sounds like an encoding problem. If you open the SQL files, do you see Arabic text? If so, then you should try to see if you can fix the encodings; unfortunately, I'm not really well-versed in how to do this.

You can also try importing the file using the character set "cp1256" in phpMyAdmin, because that is the character set used on the forum.
