[split from] upgrading from bb2 to bb3

Post by cariel »

I installed bb3 on the same database as bb2

I tried to convert, but it keeps giving me an error:
The convertor was not able to find tables with the specified prefix. Please make sure you have entered the correct details for the board you are converting from. The default table prefix for phpBB 2.0.x is phpbb_.
it's set for phpbb_ and that's what the tables are called!! I have no idea how to fix this! I have a back up of the bb2 backup.sql. Is there any way to do this manually or something? :?

The conversion page is asking you for information about the phpBB2 database.
Check all of that is correct in the 2x config.php file first.
