importing from local mdb – what settings please
I have a snitz forum on an access database, which I am trying to import into BBpress. (basically I am taking over an old website and redoing it in wordpress)
Wordpress is 3.5.1 and BBpress 2.2.4
site is http://www.gospbc.co.uk)
I have tailored the example convertor and saved it as smitz.php in the right folder (it is coming up on the list)
q1 where in my my site do I put the .mdb that I have. I have tried the root but the import doesn’t seem to find a database,
q2 in the import what do I answer to
database server -do i leave as localhost or do I need to put a directory path in?
database name : do i put xx.mdb or just xx?
Database user and password – the access database has no username or password – do i just leave these fields blank?
At the moment all I get is :
No replies to convert
No tags to convert
No topics to convert
No forum parents to convert
No forums to convert
so it can’t be finding the database
Any ideas to progress please?
