Converting sqlite3 scrape to phpbb 3.3.2

Post by Nick_nl »

Hello guys,

I could use some help of how to convert a tapatalk scrape into a usable phpbb database.
The scrape was made using taparip and this procedure went trouble free.
At the moment i have a database containing a few tables.

I was able to convert the tables into CSV files and import these using phpmyadmin.
Still it doesn't provide any results.
I'm using a offline phpbb forum running on my desktop for testing. This was created with Xampp.
What would be a good way to convert the current database into a usable one?

Thanks Nick

I doubt from what I can of that screenshot that there will be much chance of recreating a phpBB database, but perhaps if you were to point us to the actual data someone might have a better idea.

From what I can recall scraping data from an existing phpBB board and then rebuilding it into a working database is a very difficult task. Unless you have a proper backup from your original board (which if it is Tapatalk I believe is impossible) then you are probably better off cutting your losses and starting over.

Would that mean you want a copy of the database? Zipped its about 4mb.
