The converter runs off of the UCS platform. The UCS files will need to be downloaded and installed before conversion can be accomplished. You can find the UCS files at http://www.phpbb.com/downloads.php#converters
The current version does NOT convert the following:
- users' passwords. Passwords will be changed.
- word censors
- host bans
- Rank images
- Any permissions other than guests
- user moderators
