I'm getting an unrecognised error when I run the zetaboards_get_cookie.py file. It occurs after typing in my username and password (and I'm sure they are both correct). Any idea what could be causing it?

The URL must be correct, i.e. "s<n>.zetaboards.com/forumname/" in order for automatic login to work.

If you can't get it to work, create a text document called "cookie.txt" in the converter directory. In your browser, when you are logged in to the forum, type "javascript:document.cookie" in the location bar and press enter; it should show a bunch of code. Copy that into the cookie.txt file and save it; then you can skip the zetaboards_get_cookie.py step.
Need a conversion from another forum, but they won't give you the database? Try a crawler converter. If your converter isn't listed, feel free to post in that thread to ask for one.

I am not sure that I 100% understand what I am doing yet, however I have run the members_topics_posts.py from the Python prompt and now have the following files in my folder:

topics_posts_phpbb.sql
members_phpbb.sql
categories_forums_phpbb.sql

The next instruction is to execute three sql batch files in the forum database, and that is where I am puzzled.

Do I need to upload those sql file somewhere, and if so how, or do I run something on my hard drive.

I also have done the smf sql files for the same thing.

Thanks in advance

Your web host probably provided a tool to manage your MySQL databases (phpMyAdmin, MySQL Manager or a similar tool). Use the "import" feature to upload and install each of the SQL files.

Hi, I'm trying to convert invisionfree to phpbb3.
Im not sure if I can install phyton in my own computer and run it with xampp to test if it is working on the locally installed phpbb2?
also, which clean phpbb 2 version should I use for the conversion?
Sorry for asking a lot of questions, but what does this converter exactly do to the database tables?
thx

This converter runs offline, and doesn't require a webserver, MySQL nor phpBB to be installed on your computer.

All it does is produce .sql files which you can then "import" into your phpBB database -- it will not automatically modify the database, so any modifications are under your control.

You only need Python installed on your computer, not a web server (it's not a CGI script; it's just a normal program written in Python).

would it be possible to use this to convert an IPB 3 forum?

If it's hosted with Invisionfree or IPBfree, then yes. Otherwise, you should see if you can obtain a database dump and use the regular IPB converter.

Hi nneonneo...

Could you look at my thread here IF > phpbb2 converter fatal error

I should have probably posted it here in this thread.

I would very much appreciate your advice as I am ready to tear my hair out....

Thanks very much!

Hey nneonneo,

I'm using your crawler converter to convert from IPBfree to SMF 1.1.5 (the very version it is tested with, according to Instructions.txt) and I'm running into a problem. The crawler itself works fine, but when I attempt to upload the .sql files to the database, no posts appear in the forums. When I go into SMF's administration center, under Forum Maintenance's 'Find and repair any errors', the following appears:

Code: Select all

no its privately hosted, and i can get a mysql dump, but there is no converter for IPB 3, only for 2.3

Could you look at my thread here IF > phpbb2 converter fatal error

I should have probably posted it here in this thread.

I would very much appreciate your advice as I am ready to tear my hair out....

Thanks very much!
That's really strange. If you could, send me the SQL file at nneonneo@gmail.com so I can have a look.

I'm using your crawler converter to convert from IPBfree to SMF 1.1.5 (the very version it is tested with, according to Instructions.txt) and I'm running into a problem. The crawler itself works fine, but when I attempt to upload the .sql files to the database, no posts appear in the forums. When I go into SMF's administration center, under Forum Maintenance's 'Find and repair any errors', the following appears:

Code: Select all

The following errors are fouling up your forum:
Topic #2 is in board #0, which is missing.
Topic #3 is in board #0, which is missing.

I can't reproduce the problem, and the best explanation I've got is that there is some sort of strange markup on your iPBfree forum. PM me the forum address and I'll take a look...

Sorry, I can't help you here; try asking if there's an IPB3 converter in the works.
Need a conversion from another forum, but they won't give you the database? Try a crawler converter. If your converter isn't listed, feel free to post in that thread to ask for one.

Hi!
Wonderful tools I found here, but I have some trouble to shoot ;)

I'm trying to move my board from fora.pl to phpbb2 server. Fora.pl won't give database to users, so I was surfing the Net 4 the long time until I found this forum ^^

After configuration and run members_topics_posts_phpBB.py I have:
- critical_error.log is empty
- categories_forums_phpBB.sql - looks not OK - I see only categories
- members_phpBB.sql - looks OK
- pm_passwords.txt - looks OK
- topics_posts_phpBB.sql - looks bad :( only one line in that file:

Code: Select all

TRUNCATE TABLE `forum_topics`;TRUNCATE TABLE `forum_posts`;TRUNCATE TABLE `forum_posts_text`;
no more lines.
Program window ends with:

Code: Select all

Downloading Forum Structure...
Forum 46 ... Completed!
Renumbering Posts
Elapsed Conversion Time 45.80 seconds
[b]Converted 0 posts and 0 topics.[/b]
Complete! Press <enter> to exit.
I have done some research in forum page code and I think - it is possibly that forum structure has been changed. For example: I see no post ID in posts. Can it be truth?

I do not understand python, so please nneonneo, can U help? Can U check the fora.pl converter?
Or maybe it is some in my configuration?

I think it might be your configuration. You should check that you did both of these steps:

Code: Select all

Before you begin, make some settings that will improve conversion:
In your preferences, set the date format to "U" without quotes (the default is "D G:i, d M Y" if you want to change it back).
	All dates should now appear as large numbers.
In your preferences, set the language to English.
All changes are made to your profile, not the administration panel.

I have just tested the converter and it seems to be working on another fora.pl forum.
Need a conversion from another forum, but they won't give you the database? Try a crawler converter. If your converter isn't listed, feel free to post in that thread to ask for one.
