Re: A phpBB to bbPress database converter



The script worked for me last night and this is the second phpbb 2 board I convert. A few tips I can give whoever will try this script:

Follow the steps that come in the given file but make sure to:

1. Install bbPress 0.7 first, then upgrade to 0.8 when you have done the conversion. You can download 0,7 here:

Then you can go ahead and upgrade to the latest version (1.0.2). Make sure you update the settings in your admin panel (board path, name, etc) as you will need to get rid of your old config.php file when you upgrade to 0.8

2. If you’re hosted on 1and1, switch EXPORT_TO_FILE to false and AUTO_IMPORT_EXPORTED_DATA to true. Also add teh following code to your .htaccess file: AddType x-mapp-php5 .php (not sure if this is necessary but it worked for me).

3. I got an error saying that some query was empty, but it seems that the conversion went without any problems.
