Yes you should be able to .... with 1.6 use the convertor to phpBB3.0 then update to 3.1

Import your board and make the conversion, the same as if you were doing it live. Make sure that the PHP version in your local set up is compatible with the version of phpBB you intend using.

Code: Select all

mysql -u root -p [b]name of database[/b] < backup_86839.sql
enter
enter password:
enter

than i have this error:
