[SMF Converter] IPB 2.2.x

<< < (39/41) > >>

Hi all. I'm in the midst of trying to export a large IPB 2.2 DB (280 MB) from one server/domain and get it imported on a different server/domain. Problem is, I can't import a DB over 50 MB or so via phpMyAdmin and I'm honestly not all that well versed on SQL to begin with.

I have a copy of the DB in question on my local computer and on the destination server. I uploaded it via FTP to the base directory that SMF is running in.

When I run the converter it just gives me "Unable to find the settings for Invision Power Board 2.2. Please double check the path and try again." Both paths are the same because that's where I uploaded the DB. Can someone straighten me out? Thanks for your time.

Well, this is different. I attempted it again using the same exact parameters and got this:

I checked the SMF install, nothing changed. No users, no posts, etc.

this means the session was broken during conversion. try to restart the conversion from the beginning...

Tried: same result. Over and over.

Also tried creating a conf_global.php file with the appropriate data as suggested in the main forum. That gave me an error because the current user wasn't allowed access to the IPB DB.

--- Quote ---Notice: Use of undefined constant sql_database - assumed 'sql_database' in /home/damaged/public_html/nporabeta/conf_global.php on line 2

Notice: Use of undefined constant sql_tbl_prefix - assumed 'sql_tbl_prefix' in /home/damaged/public_html/nporabeta/conf_global.php on line 3

--- Quote ---Sorry, the database connection information used in the specified installation of SMF cannot access the installation of Invision Power Board 2.2. This may either mean that the installation doesn't exist, or that the MySQL account used does not have permissions to access it.

The error MySQL gave was: SELECT command denied to user 'damaged'@'localhost' for table 'ibf_members'
--- End quote ---

I then set permissions for the IPB DB to 777...still doesn't work. What am I missing here?

the mysql user from SMF (specified in Settings.php) must be allowed to read the IPB database or the converter won't work..

Common conversion errors.
