WowBB to phpbb3 conversion

Post by Nilsz »

Hi there,

I did a conversion of a huge board from WowBB on MySQL to phpbb3 on Postgresql. As there were no converters available for that conversion, I wrote my own Java program to do the conversion.

It worked for me, but it's not very good documented yet.

For those interested/curious, here's a tar ball of my java project.

I'm a bit short on time at the moment, but if there are people interested, I'm willing to document better, and/or make the code more generic (now, it's specifically to my needs, most importantly programmed for MySQL -> PostgreSQL).

Thanks for posting this, is there any basic instructions how to implement the script?

also if so can it be changed in the config to as below:

in.db.url="jdbc:mysql:http://mywebaddress/perspect_wowbb?user=root&password="
out.db.url="jdbc:mysql:http://mywebaddress/phpbb?user=phpbb&password=phpbb"
files.store.dir="http://mywebaddress/phpbb/files/"
execute.modules="init,forums,users"

Any help would be grateful J :)

Hello,
Does anyone know, how stable the converter is?
