2.0.22 to 3.0 conversion

Post by MichiganMotoX » Sun Dec 23, 2007 8:36 pm

I just installed the full version of 3.0 and that went just fine. But how do I get all my current users and forums available in 3.0. I didn't see the "update" from 2.0 to 3.0 so I did the full install, now I just need all my "old" posts and users to show up in the new 3.0.

Thanks

John

The converter for this is actually included in the phpBB3 download, you need to install phpBB3 on your hosting so you have your phpBB2 board and a fresh phpBB3 board running side by side. Then you browse to the phpBB3/install/ location and click the convert tab to start the conversion. The converter is however only really guaranteed to work on the latest version of phpBB2 and as such you may want to think about updating phpBB2 to the latest first to be sure nothing goes wrong during the conversion. There is also a little guide here on converting and also in the docs which come with the phpBB3 download :)

Great Thanks...but now I get this when trying to Convert

Could not find path to your former board. Please check your settings and try again.
�� ../forums was specified as the source path.

Any ideas??

Thanks

:? did you read the docs and the guide I linked you to? If you have placed the the phpBB3 files into the same folder as the phpBB2 files you will have overwritten phpBB2 files or do you mean the phpBB2 folder and the phpBB3 folder are both in the root, can you give the web address of both forums?

Did you update phpBB2 to 2.0.22 like I suggested?
