1.1 Converters
« on: June 15, 2005, 04:46:34 PM »
I've attached the converters for 1.1 here incase they are of use to people. Please bear in mind these are beta versions - so please report any bugs you may find!

To use the new converters, first upload both "convert.php" and the file named "yoursoftware_to_smf.sql" or "yoursoftware_to_smf.php" to the same directory.  This directory can be either the directory of SMF, that of your previous software (in most cases - except XOOPS, where it should be in the same directory as XOOPS), or any other directory you prefer.  Then, access the convert.php file much like you might install.php or upgrade.php:

http://www.example.com/path/to/convert.php

From there, proceed as directed by the converter.

Thanks Grudge :)

Looks like a couple small bugs in the phpbb sql

Those were older versions, actually, although there were a few typos as you described in the current version.

Please note that these have not been thoroughly tested, and I would call them alpha versions, not beta versions.  Still, they will not harm in any way the forum you're converting from, and can only break the destination SMF forum.

I've updated the first post with the most recent versions.  All of the files have changed, and more than a couple things were fixed.

phpbb2 to smf 1.1

Just downloaded convert.php and phpbb2 to smf.sql and tried them on a phpbb v2.0.16 conversion.

It produced a long page of output including text from posts. After several sections it says "Successful" and next to some Database query headings it says "skipped". I don't see any error messages.

At the end of the page, it says...

Successful.

Conversion Complete
Congratulations, the conversion has completed sucessfully.

Yet no categories, boards, posts or members appear. Looking in the database via phpMyAdmin, I don't see any phpbb data in the smf tables.

How do we go about debugging this?

Same problem here. Nothing gets imported into the new smf tables, but I got no real errors, just some 'skipped' messages. After that 'Conversion complete', but nothing in there.

running the latest version of the phpbb script I am getting this error after a long line of success outputs.

Database query:

I'm digging through it to see what I can find but just a heads up!

I'm having the same problem on my server:

Apache/1.3.33 (Unix)
PHP/4.3.11

Fatal error: Unsupported operand types in /path/to/smf/convert.php on line 848

This line, I'm guessing:
Code: [Select]
$row += mysql_fetch_assoc($result);

There were another two warnings that I missed earlier:

Warning: mysql_fetch_row(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource in /path/to/smf/convert.php(520) : eval()'d code on line 4
Warning: mysql_free_result(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource in /path/to/smf/convert.php(520) : eval()'d code on line 5

I would love to see the phpBB2 to SMF converter working, too.  I was going to try to do a phpBB 2.0.16 forum to 1.1 Beta 3 conversion tonight for a massively large forum in order to ensure I didn't have to do the manual upgrade from 1.0.5 to 1.1 when it switches over instead, but it appears the converter isn't working properly yet.  The forum is for my employer at http://www.lunarforums.com/

I can convert to 1.0.5, but then I will take the heat for the manual conversion to 1.1 series when that happens b/c the main selling point to SMF was the auto upgrades in the Package Manager :D

How do we go about debugging this?

Well, I left convert.php in debugging mode... sorry about that.  So you were debugging it ;).  To fix this, download the new convert.php.  You may need to access it with this URL:

convert.php?debug=0

Quote
Fatal error: Unsupported operand types in /path/to/smf/convert.php on line 848

Same problem.  Sorry about that.... but I was testing something, and I did mention they were still in testing :P.  That said, if you got no real errors, it means that things were good.

There were another two warnings that I missed earlier:

Warning: mysql_fetch_row(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource in /path/to/smf/convert.php(520) : eval()'d code on line 4
Warning: mysql_free_result(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource in /path/to/smf/convert.php(520) : eval()'d code on line 5

Just before message:  "Recalculating forum statistics..."

Same issue.  Again, please download the new convert.php.

I tryed it again with "debug=0" option.
Everything ran fine except group access:
Code: [Select]
Converting ranks... Successful.
Converting groups... Successful.
Converting members... Successful.
Converting additional member groups... Successful.
Converting categories... Successful.
Converting boards... Successful.
Converting topics... Successful.
Converting posts (this may take some time)... Successful.
Converting poll questions... Successful.
Converting polls options... Successful.
Converting polls options... Successful.
Converting personal messages (step 1)... Successful.
Converting personal messages (step 2)... Successful.
Converting topic notifications... Successful.
Converting board access... Successful.
Converting group access... Unsuccessful!
This query:

    INSERT INTO `forum`.smf_board_permissions
    (ID_GROUP, ID_BOARD, permission)
    VALUES
    (41, 1, 'post_new'),
    (41, 1, 'mark_notify'),
    (41, 1, 'mark_any_notify'),
    (41, 1, 'post_reply_any'),
    (41, 1, 'modify_own'),
    (41, 1, 'remove_own'),
    (41, 1, 'delete_own'),
    (41, 1, 'make_sticky'),
    (41, 1, 'announce_topic'),
    (41, 1, 'poll_post'),
    (41, 1, 'poll_add_own'),
    (41, 1, 'poll_vote'),
    (41, 1, 'poll_view'),
    (41, 1, 'moderate_board'),
    (41, 1, 'remove_any'),
    (41, 1, 'lock_any'),
    (41, 1, 'lock_own'),
    (41, 1, 'merge_any'),
    (41, 1, 'modify_any'),

    (41, 1, 'move_any'),
    (41, 1, 'poll_add_any'),
    (41, 1, 'poll_edit_any'),
    (41, 1, 'poll_remove_any'),
    (41, 1, 'post_reply_own'),
    (41, 1, 'delete_any'),
    (41, 1, 'report_any'),
    (41, 1, 'send_topic'),
    (41, 1, 'split_any');

Caused the error:

    Duplicate entry '41-1-modify_own' for key 1
It seems OK, though. Few things I've noticed so far:
  • The smilies didn't covert, I assume this option isn't avalable yet.
  • Post count based groups (ranks) are duplicated, i.e. there's two for every rank that I've had in phpBB
  • Total Memebers count is 1 in the info center
  • Number of members in member list is 100, while in the original board is 107

Oh, I see.  This was designed to ignore such errors.  Part of the problem is the old conversion system skipped such things.

I've updated them again.  How do they go now?

Looks much better! No error messages.

The statistics were recalculated properly, so the member count is correct now and latest member appeared (was empty before).
The Ranks are still increasing in number, though, I have 4 of each rank title now :). Could it be because I ran converter several times? I thought it was to overwrite the old data...

Will smilie conversion be added later on? I liked that option in 1.0.x

I'll keep looking for more issues and report back.

Unfortunately, yes.  I'll see if I can't improve it to fix that problem.  However, you can just delete the extra groups anyway.

Perhaps... it was only removed for simplicity.

Looks pretty good now. No error messages from the converter - everything successful and complete.

At a quick glance, everything seems to be there. Will have to go through the fine detail but member count matches, post count is only -3 which could be a phpbb issue.

Good work [Unknown] and thank you for your fast fixes.

Thanks Guys!!!

Now everything seems to be converting Except 2 forums I am having a problem with. 

These 2 forums appear to have posted the topics until you look a little closer and you can't actually see any of the messages in the forums.
Here is the before of one of the forums:


and here is the after of the same forum.


and the detail of where it does 'pagination' yet has no messages:


The one thing they have in common is that the permissions on both were set in such a way that only mods or admins could post new topics but everyone else could reply.  I can't help but think it is the permissions but I tried to set the permissions of these two forums on the phpbb to the same as the other forums that were successful but they had the same end result here.  Very strange!
Any ideas?

Try a recount of all forum totals and statistics, and doing a "find and repair all forum errors".

did that but that is not the actual result I was looking for.  That just removed the message counts..    I don't want rid of the counts, I want the messages associated with those copied over.  I have not found them in any other forum, they just don't seem to be in here?

I'll do another port to try again and see if it works this round.
