« on: September 02, 2008, 03:18:40 PM »
Software: Burning Board
Version: 2.3.x

This is the official support topic for Burning Board 2.3 converter.  Use this topic to ask for support for this converter.

Note: This was tested on Burning Board 2.3.6, but should in theory work on other versions of Burning Board 2.3.x if the database changes have not been to great.

Changelog

convert.php
Use this convert.php with the .sql file attached in this topic.

you only need to enter the path to your wbb installation during conversion, the converter reads the needed infos from the following wbb file: /acp/lib/config.inc.php

but where? in convert.php ? i don't see there any config.
And when i'm using my convert.php at http://192.168.178.211/local/smf/convert.php there is only a white site. when i opening http://192.168.178.211/local/smf/index.php SMF will me shown my forum. so documentation is quit good. i read the note from you some times, but i found there nothing to solve this.

maybe you are using the convert.php from our downloads page? the lower part of my signature should help.. (or direct link to the fixed convert.php: http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=140741.0;attach=67973)
the wbb-infos are defined in the wbb23_to_smf.sql (attachment, first message of this topic)
http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=259274.0;attach=67039

dowload both files and place them into your SMF directory, then call the convert.php from your browser..

Okay, this worked.
But, when i logged in, i'm global moderator (in wbb i'm admin but NOT ID=1 !!) and now i see NO FORUM or kategorie.
Whats to do, to get admin here in SMF ?

use phpMyAdmin an go the the SQL-Window

execute the following query:

Code: [Select]
UPDATE smf_members SET ID_GROUP = '1' WHERE memberName='youradminsname';
replace smf_ with your database prefix and youradminsname with the name of the admin account... then login and check the permissions.
