Converting myBB 1.8.12 to phpBB 3.2.x or 3.1.x

Post by RoamPT »

Hello. So I have been having multiple issues trying to convert my myBB 1.8.12 forum to phpBB 3.1.x. I get this error "functions_mybb18.php [948]: Post ID: 630 Message parser error: Your message contains too few characters" right at the start, if I try to continue the server will timeout. Also I get a lot of skip's.

I'm running wamp 2.3 with 5.4.x PHP.

Check the attachment for the picture.

They're converting from MyBB, so that setting isn't going to do anything.

What converter are you using? Are you able to link to where you downloaded it?

I downloaded it from the forum here. But I ended up doing it diferently. I uploaded my SMF to my host and went SMF 2.0.19 to phpBB 3.1 without issues. Because I did SMF>myBB and was trying to go myBB to phpBB through Wamp but using my host it worked going directly SMF to phpBB. I'm happy with the change.
