Can’t import phpbb 3.2.0
I finally had enough with phpbb and installed a wordpress JUST for my forums. I installed bbpress in it and have been trying to import the forums over. First it kept erroring saying missing table fields or whatever, so I kept adding the table fields to the areas of the phpbb’s sql DB where it was looking for them..then it got stuck with the “Starting Conversion” and a spinning wheel. Everytime I had chosen “Start Over” I would get the “Specified key was too long; max key length is 1000 bytes” error. Just not my day I guess. 🙁
I had a few questions…
1) Does the importer not support 3.2.0? I figured it does by now since it states phpBB 3.x
2) Can you make the main index page of the WordPress site the forums? This way the wordpress is for nothing other than the forums? (once things do get working…)
3) Am I missing anything lol…I’m rackin my mind on this and it’s driving me nuts 🙂
I can’t wait to be in a better environment for the forums…
