SMF 2.1 Convertor

Post by ndmccain »

Hello,

I tried the SMF 2.0 convetor but it just throws errors, is this the only one to use for converting a SMF forum? The errors are:

Code: Select all

Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Class "utf_normalizer" not found in /home/u719648509/domains/nickersim.com/public_html/forum/install/convertors/functions_smf20.php:144 Stack trace: #0 /home/u719648509/domains/nickersim.com/public_html/forum/install/convertors/functions_smf20.php(1965): smf_set_encoding() #1 /home/u719648509/domains/nickersim.com/public_html/forum/install/convert/convertor.php(457) : eval()'d code(2): smf_conv_file_settings() #2 /home/u719648509/domains/nickersim.com/public_html/forum/install/convert/convertor.php(457): eval() #3 /home/u719648509/domains/nickersim.com/public_html/forum/install/convert/controller/convertor.php(370): phpbb\convert\convertor->convert_data() #4 /home/u719648509/domains/nickersim.com/public_html/forum/vendor/symfony/http-kernel/HttpKernel.php(151): phpbb\convert\controller\convertor->convert() #5 /home/u719648509/domains/nickersim.com/public_html/forum/vendor/symfony/http-kernel/HttpKernel.php(68): Symfony\Component\HttpKernel\HttpKernel->handleRaw() #6 /home/u719648509/domains/nickersim.com/public_html/forum/install/app.php(61): Symfony\Component\HttpKernel\HttpKernel->handle() #7 {main} thrown in /home/u719648509/domains/nickersim.com/public_html/forum/install/convertors/functions_smf20.php on line 144

A 2.0 converter would not be able to deal with 2.1. Too many database differences. Haven't looked into the situation in depth, but my guess is you would need either a 2.0 backup (which should convert) or you would need to rewrite the 2.0 converter (ZOMG teh regex).
