Moving PHPBB3 to BBPRess – Database issue
I have successfully moved by vbulletin site into phpbb3 and now ready to finalize the moved to bbpress. I had done a test on this process twice in the past and confirmed the steps and all that jazz but the last part is where I always get hung up.
Generally in the integration of the bbpress and wp users and logins.
Seems that may be again the issue but even prior to converting the data into bbpress.
My current site is a WPMU and has buddypress with bbpress standalone already connected. So, there is no bb_users table. When I run the convertor it of course is looking for that table and returns an error which kills the process.
knowing how sensitive this dang thing is I thought I would ask for some advice and help first prior to just trying to create tables and/or modify this convertor files. Both things I truly have little clue on how to do properly.
Some added info – I do have a users table and that is what is connected to WP and the last step in the conversation process is actually to rename the bp_user table to users if you intend to use WP for your users versus BBP. This is something I don’t want to change as it currently works just fine.
Finally, incase someone has a completely other solution here is what I got..
PHPBB3 has all my posts and users and is installed on the same domain as WPMU and BBP. It is also sharing the same database.
I have confirmed the phpbb forum works just fine with the users and my WPMU with BBP also works just fine. I would like to dump the phpbb and use bbp. I then am hoping to check into the bbp plugin.
Thank for all help and advice.
