reverse integration bb_usermeta bb_user tables

  • Hi,

    I have an existing phpbb2 forum and was hoping to migrate the existing data into bbPress, followed by integration to WordPress MU. Here’s the steps i’ve done so far:

    1. installed a fresh copy of bbPress 1.0.2

    2. downloaded phpbb2bbpress converter from

    3. ammended the necessary stuff inside the file and ran the script

    4. installed WordPress MU

    I was comparing the bb_ and wp_ tables and would like to know:

    1. can i simply insert into wp_usermeta, (user_id, meta_key, meta_value) from bb_usermeta table where the meta_key = bb_capabilities because it looks safer than just replacing wp_usermeta with bb_usermeta due to the existing entries in wp_usermeta which i’m unsure of their usage?

    2. it also seems that i should insert all the necessary values from bb_users table to wp_users table because wp_users has more columns

    are there anything else database-wise i need to do?

    After the above i know i need to install a bbpress-integration.php into WordPress MU and do some settings on both bbPress and WordPress MU settings/configs. Are there any other steps i’m missing out?

    I would really appreciate any help on this :-)
