It looks like you used
wp_forums_\ as the table prefix on the importer settings, as a quick guess I think it should be
Edit: You can confirm what this value should be by opening the
wp-config.php file in the root of the WordPress install that has Mingle forums installed.
* WordPress Database Table prefix.
* You can have multiple installations in one database if you give each a unique
* prefix. Only numbers, letters, and underscores please!
$table_prefix = 'wp_';
Thank you so much for replying. I opened the wp-config.php and looked up the $table_prefix and it was ‘wp_’ so I tried to run the convert/import and it came up with this message:
Starting ConversionRepair any missing information: Continue
WordPress database error: [You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near ‘\”wp_\”forum_forums AS forum_forums LIMIT 0, 100’ at line 1]

I’m really not sure what to do here. Like I said I’m a SQL newbie so I really don’t understand much about it yet.
Thank you for your assistance so far,
Did you use single or double quotes around
The error you show above showing the error as
\”wp_\”forum_forums is an odd one, if things were working correctly I would expect the error to look more like this
Open up your
wp-config.php file again:
// ** MySQL settings - You can get this info from your web host ** //
/** The name of the database for WordPress */
/** MySQL database username */
/** MySQL database password */
/** MySQL hostname */
Make sure the values above are the ones you are using on the bbPress import settings and that you select
Mingle as the import type.
If you still have the same issue you might have to have a chat with your web host to see if there is some extra SQL settings needed by them.
I tried it with both single and double quotes.
I opened the wp-config.php and copied the information directly from there. Still getting a similar issue. I’m going to contact bluehost and see what they have to say.
Thank you for all your assistance. Once I hear from bluehost I will update this thread with that information.
DO NOT USE ANY QUOTES, just use
