CSV seems to be properly formatted, that is really strange.

Make sure the php file is saved properly: correct start and end, no extra white spaces at beginning or end, correct linebreaks and encoding...

Sorry but I don't have any other clue. :(

Short question ...

it could happen, that in the NEW database the user already exists and you try to import the old database.
Then an error is shown:

Duplicate entry 'spricer12345' for key 2 [1062]


INSERT INTO phpbb_users (username, username_clean, user_password, user_pass_convert, user_email, user_email_hash, group_id, user_type, user_permissions, user_timezone, user_dateformat, user_lang, user_style, user_actkey, user_ip, user_regdate, user_passchg, user_options, user_inactive_reason, user_inactive_time, user_lastmark, user_lastvisit, user_lastpost_time, user_lastpage, user_posts, user_dst, user_colour, user_occ, user_interests, user_avatar, user_avatar_type, user_avatar_width, user_avatar_height, user_new_privmsg, user_unread_privmsg, user_last_privmsg, user_message_rules, user_full_folder, user_emailtime, user_notify, user_notify_pm, user_notify_type, user_allow_pm, user_allow_viewonline, user_allow_viewemail, user_allow_massemail, user_sig, user_sig_bbcode_uid, user_sig_bbcode_bitfield, user_form_salt) VALUES ('spricer12345', 'spricer12345', '$H$76kX1whTt1KfzxuRqN8uPSEzMGGXse0', 0, 'wouldbean.email', '162349476417', '2', '0', '', '1', 'd M Y H:i', 'en', 3, '', '', 1224513374, 1224513374, 895, 0, 0, 1224513374, 0, 0, '', 0, 1, '', '', '', '', 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, -3, 0, 0, 1, 0, 1, 1, 1, 1, '', '', '', '552f24ef9b16ffb5')

Would be glad, if someone could change the script in a way, that EXISTING users are not "overwritten" or updated, just being "unconsidered" for import.

The script is working fine but i get something weird in the phpbb_users`.`username` field.

the username have a /0 before de username.

example:

\0User 01 user 01 $H$9Q8iKBnrJn5xH/rKgMcHTGAPXTQ8kc1 1235855008 0 user01@user01.com en


this is my users_to_add.csv

"User 01",123456,"user01@user01.com",2,"en",0

Someone know what in causing this?

Thanks

I've tried the code that was published by harley1979fxe, and I have a strange problem. Everything seem to be working (almost) fine, untill the line include comes.

When I launch the file without include lines, just to test the CSV file explode function - everything is going just fine. When I add the include functions for common.php, functions.php, functions_user.php the program seem to stop working at the end of include section.

Do I have to split the file, i don't know, put something that will give the parser informations, that the declaring section is over?

Another problem I have, is trouble with handling CSV file. I've copy/paste teh script into Embacadero Delphi for PHP 2.0 (to have lines couloure3d etc.), and after creating this file, and running it in my browser, one problem appeared. The script is no longer able to tell ,ehen the file is ending. It is able to read and explode all 120 users, but then I get THOUSANDS of empty records. I don't get it. is the program, where you're creating your script THAT important? I don't think so.

One more thing: is authentication a 'must be'. Or will the user_add() function work, when it's called from the file in root dir, even if no administrator is logged in, authenticated?

Thanks!

Is there a SQL command we can use to insert new member into data table?

phpMyAdmin..

Export phpbb_users table to Excel Spreadsheet
name the phpbb_users table to phpbb_users_backup
Add your new data to the exported spreadsheet table making sure each is under the correct header
Import the XLS file through phpmyAdmin and call it phpbb_users

phpMyAdmin has more comprehensive instructions on how to do this as well.

Hey we have also implemented this and it worked great !
Though it does not send email to the newly added users.

We have also added the mod: acp_add_user-1.1.2
wherein admin can create a user and invitation goes to added user automatically.

Can we do the same this here as well for bulk user upload?

Thanks in advance.

what were you doing when you got this error? whatever file you are trying to run that has that mysql query in it.

the query is wrong where I showed you.

edit whatever file that is .

Now I got it. Now success fully added users to my board with a simple modification to my csv file. Actually I forgot to add the username user_password user_email group_id user_lang user_type user_regdate
@ the top of the csv. After corrected and uploaded them to the root directory, now i got the message as below.


ADDING USERS

All the users have been imported correctly!

The following users have been added to the DB:

username, user01, user02, user03, user04, user05, user06, user07

I have checked through my admin CP and everything seems working fine.

Thanks for all the members who were participated and guided me on this thread/topic
