Your board should use phpBB3 mode.

There should be an option to change it in your member preferences.

NOT the Admin interface. Your regular account.

If you have phpMyAdmin, just use the "import" or "SQL" command to upload the file to the database.

I really appreciate all of your help, I think I am very unlucky when trying to upload members_php_BB3.sql

i get this error:

Error
SQL query:

DELETE FROM phpbb 3users;



MySQL said:

#1064 - You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '3users' at line 1

You used the prefix "phpbb 3" but that's probably not what the database prefix is. Check the tables -- they will all start with the same thing; that's the prefix you should use.

You want to change "table_prefix" under settings.py.

Also, it would appear that you are converting to phpBB2. This converter only works with phpBB3, so you will want to upgrade first.
