When i click on "Begin Conversion":

"Could not connect to the database, see error message below.
No error message given. "

This is the message that appear. In "Settings" stage.

The conversion page is asking you for info about the 2x board. All of that information is in the 2x config.php file.

Make sure that you're giving it the right information.
