I would convert my Kunena forum to phpBB how can help?
« on: April 03, 2012, 07:02:19 PM »
since a few days, I´m trying to import the kunena users and posts to my new phpBB forum.
I´m not a professional.
I would be very happy, if someone can help me, and explain me how I can do this.


I found this :To use these converters simply upload the contents of the archive to your SMF directory and execute convert.php. this the files.
But I dont understand, I don´t speak english very good.
It is a joomla site (2.5). I don´t have an SMF directory. I create one, and put convert.php in the browser, so it looks like this:
hxxp:www.mysite.de/convert.php [nonactive]
It doesn´t works

How can help?


Best Regards

JJ

That is because it is for forums being moved TO smf FROM phpbb.

By phpbb support board I meant http://www.phpbb.com/

Hi,
Look, I mean this herehttp://download.simplemachines.org/?converters;software=kunena
that converter is from Kunena to SMF 2-0, not from Kunena to phpBB  ;)

But why you want to convert to phpBB, other than that , generally people move from phpBB to SMF as they find SMF more promising.. !!
Is that you find SMF not helpful or good ?

In simple words as already fellow members told you, you are asking at wrong place.

HI, actually, you may try automated converter cms2cms
it's available to try free demo to see how it works. IN general, the procedure is simple and doesn't require technical skills.
