phpBB3 has to be on the same server and in the same domain as SMF. This topic will explain more, Convert How To.

You haven't uploaded the SMF convertor or it is uploaded to the wrong place. You should see the SMF convertor listed as well as the phpBB2 convertor.

So I just noticed one problem.

It converted all of the boards over and they all work but one.

Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in ?/home2/****/public_html/warpigsclan.net/forum/includes/functions.php on line 3200

like I said thats just on 1 board.

any ideas?

I have an old SMF 1.1 RC3. Do I need to upgrade to higher version of SMF before I could convert it to phpbb3?? Or will I be able to convert it directly to phpbb3?

I don't know for sure, but I believe there are differences between RC3 and 1.1.1. You can try the convertor and see if it works. It won't hurt your SMF board if it doesn't work.

I have a huge SMF database (see below). What would be the best approach to convert it to phpbb3?

The best approach is to do the conversion on your server. The convertor will not modify your SMF board at all, but it is always a good idea to have a backup anyway. If the conversion should fail, the SMF board will still be usable. If the conversion does fail due to your server not having enough resources, the conversion will have to be done offline.

The attached auth_smf file should work
The file has been removed. See http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... #p10416685 for the new convertor.

I replaced the old auth file with the one attached, i replaced the install folder, and resterted the conversion, all worked fine (the search index was not converted, i guess it is not important) but i still cant log in.

The convertor does not convert the Search Index. You need to build the Index in the phpBB3 Administration Control Panel which is in the Maintenance tab.

You will need to run the conversion again. The convertor was not transferring the salt field which caused the logging in problem. The new, improved convertor attached to this post now does this and it has new additional features
  1. Custom BBCodes are added to phpBB3 so that most of the SMF BBCodes are converted.
  2. This convertor will now convert the Gender field. You do need to add evil<3's Genders MOD BEFORE running the convertor.
