Ok another update.  Now categories are converting properly.  Those of you that are running the converter a second time you might have to install a fresh copy of SMF.  I am going to be adding checks so that you dont have to make a fresh install each time.  File posted in first post.

I am using the convert.php from the download page:

Is that wrong?

Thanks again

I have tried both, first i tried the one from this post a couple of times and then I tried the one on the download page but I got the same result..

I'll try again with the one from this post and let you know. I removed and reinstalled SMF, deleted the database each time, so it was a clean working install, each time i tried it.

Thanks

OK - Just tried again with the file from this post and the converter from the download page on a fresh SMF install and exactly the same problem..

Any ideas? Is it one of the mods do you think?

Cheers

I had recently upgraded my yabb to 2.1 ...no mods installed. I have downloaded and installed smf 1-1 rc3 and that is working fine. I downloaded the yabb 2.1 converter and it will not see my yabb installation. I have checked the paths with my ISP and they are correct!?

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

mlsred - I just checked the files you sent me and everything looks correct.  Can you check the permissions for the members dir?
rastarasta - Check your Settings.pl file.  It should show the paths there.

Hi

Members DIR is set to 777...

Most of the members files in it are 666 but some are 644, not sure why there is a difference..

Thanks M

I'm scratching my head over this one.  Not sure what is causing this.  How many members does your forum have?

As far as I am aware yabb 2.1 doesn't have a settings.pl it uses Paths.pl. Am unable to make the convert.php see the Yabb installation. I am confused since basically the path should be very similar to the smf one .. /httpdocs/smf should be replaced with /cgi-bin/yabb and it should work as far as I can see but that is not the case :-(
