A script to help you convert you phpbb3 (version 3.0.7) forum to bbpress (version:1.0.2) forum. This code is an update to the code made by wmnasef (http://bbpress.org/forums/topic/phpbb3-gt-bbpress-converter-beta-release).
GET IT @
* works with bbpress 1.0.2
* corrects the single quote problem
* corrects the login problem
HOW TO INSTALL
1. make a backup from your online forum (if possible make an exact copy of your forum in your localhost server, this prevents any damage to the online forum).
2. install bbpress anywhere, just use the same database of phpbb3. this is important because the script assumes that all tables are in the same database.
3. download the script from here. extract it, and you’ll get 2 files.
4. copy the file phpbb3tobbpress.php to “phpbb3/” directory.
5. copy the file _phpbb3_pass.php to bbpress/my-plugins/ directory (if it doesn’t exist, create it!).
6. go to http://path-to-phpbb3/phpbb3tobbpress.php and start converting your board.
7. voila .. all your data is converted to bbpress tables, go to your bbpress installation and login. don’t forget to visit admin->manage->recount to make sure your converted board is updated.
As said before, it is advised to copy your phpbb3 forum to a localhost installation and make the conversion as stated in the steps above, this way if you have big forum with thousands of posts, it is easier and safer to run the conversion on localhost.
Hope this helps and thanx to the original poster.
