Importing From PhpBB3 Questions
Hi, I have a forum to convert to BBPress. it does not have any mods that are important. Is is quite old and had a lot of topics, about 8,000 members mostly inactive.
The reason I want to convert is I think it will be better to have it on wordpress and have more flexibility, plugins etc.
I do already have a blog installed on the /blog directory and the phpbb forum is on the root directory. But the blog had all the users imported from the WP united plugin and I think this could cause issues so I plan to revert back to a default install.
This is how I plan to do it:
Backup everyone and research and follow procedures to import
Backup wordpress posts and pages, there is not many
Uninstall and Delete the blog and install again a fresh default blog in the /blog directory
Install BBPress in a /forum directory
Run the importer and import the forum.
Now this is where I’m a little lost…
I eventually want the forum to be back on the root directory, how will I do this?
Is there anything else I should know before hand?
