First, if this topic is better located in another section of the forum, I ask the moderators to move it where they see fit.
There are several topics in this post / question so I have thought better to divide them into 2 post, one in section converters and another in general support: viewtopic.php?f=561&t=2494616
Currently, I recently started a forum about phpbb3 and in the past it was another (it no longer exists for several reasons that have nothing to do with phpbb3).
I am delighted with phpb3, its possibilities (with its extensions) and that is why I am considering converting my forum that I have in vbulletin 4.2.5 to phpbb3.
I have seen in the forum the possibility of migrating vbuletin 4.2 to phpbb 3.11 (I do not know if I could do it from vbulletin 4.2.5 because the converter that I have seen only speaks of vb 4.2 but I want to believe that if) then I have seen that I need to update from 3.11 to 3.2.x
I have not found any vbulletin 4.2.x to php 3.2.x converter
Do you know if there is another possibility of conversion from vbulletin 4.2.5?
What makes me think of a migration to phpbb3?
It has an excellent support, both here and in its forum in my country.
Regular updates and updates, both for functions and for security.
Possibility that in future, future versions of php can be used with the advantages you may have.
There are extensions for everything or almost everything, which makes the forum a great tool.
Apart from the converter, I still do not know how I'm going to do it and if I can do it, VB incorporates by default a friendly URL system, I know that phpb3 does not have it, for me, it's not important and neither for search engines, but the problem is that I have many internal links that call other parts of the forum with that url format, this I guess I would lose it, if there were 4 publications, I would edit them manually, but there are many, many more ...
The forum is wide, we talk about 128,000 users and approximately 900,000 messages, with an age of approximately 13 years, so there are many internal links that call from one publication to another in the friendly format of the URL.
Any comments, suggestions, opinions or whatever, I thank you in advance.
In the forum I only found the converter from vb 4.2 to php 3.11 and later update to php 3.2.x.
As I comment, any suggestion, comment, help or similar, I thank you in advance.
Thanks and best regards!
