Is it possible to download the version?

Post by MOSHE1111 » Sat Oct 12, 2019 11:13 pm

I'm trying to convert to another platform, and the conversion option is only supported on low versions. Is there a way to downgrade (reverse upgrade) the forum version?

not really. it is about the database. once updated, returning it to the older version is not really possible and be able to keep all the posts, members, etc.


what people normally do is find a different platform that does have the ability for converting from your current phpbb version and also then has the ability for converting from that platform to the one you really want.

Thanks for the detailed guidance. Which platform would you recommend that it supports converting to from the current platform?

why would you want to move from a phpBB board to a bbpress board. phpbb has many more features, is much more secure etc. etc.
and there are several bridges to make it work with wp just fine.

I did some research on a convertor. everything I found was not very good. it might convert the users and posts but just about everything else has to be redone manually.
groups, permissions, etc.

I know you want free but if you just have to use bbpress then I think this is your best bet:

Is it possible to install a lower version on another server, then import forums and topics from a newer version to the lower version?

not without being or knowing a really good database expert. that would cost way more than paying that company to do it for you.
