[BETA] SMF 1.1 RC2 Converter - Including update for vB 3.5
« on: January 13, 2006, 05:29:56 PM »
All,

For users running RC2 the old convert.php will cause an error at the end. I've attached a new convert.php file which you can use with the converters in this topic for RC2.

In addition I have attached a beta version of a vB 3.5 converter.

Grudge

EDIT: Fixed the issue that was causing the converter to get in an endless loop on the last step - Oldiesmann
EDIT: Fixed a small issue wihth a parse error.  Also added MyBB to SMF converter. - JayBachatero
EDIT: Added IPB 2.1.x converter - Oldiesmann
UPDATE: Fixed a couple bugs with IPB 2.1.x converter and re-uploaded it - Oldiesmann (5/30/06)
UPDATE: Added e107 ver0.7.5 converter - JayBachatero (6/3/06)
EDIT: Fixed small bug in PM conversion. - JayBachatero(6/3/06)

 I ran the  updated one - it gets to
  recalculating forum statistics - incomplete

the server remainds pegged with httpd and mysle process - the screen says it has paused to avoid overloading the server - press the button to continue.

The button shows a counter - 3,2,1,0 - and whether I press the continue button or not it seems stuck in infiinite loop.

Installed fresh rc2 smf. phpbb2 2.0.18

What should I do next?

thanks/

One more thing.

I stopped the install after waiting 15 mins.

Then I tried loggin in to the forum - and the it will not let me login - its sayd check your cookie settings.
Not sure what that means.

Update -
  1)  i deleted all cookies from SMF - now I can login.

   2) From maintenance I did update stats and repair
        Repair complained about subject not being in cache and offered to fix - which I did.

    It looks like things are ok now.

 There is an infinite loop in converter it seems - I need some time to check if all is intact.

Thanks

Well depending on the size of your forum it will take a while to convert all that data.

Forum was converted fine - it was the stats that it was stuck on. After killing the convert - i logged into new  converted forum - and the maintenance stats update only took a few seconds.

As far as I can tell it has successfully converted.

Still going through all the pieces.

Updated info.

    I found the fields in the database. They are all in the table xx_themes

    theme_url
    images_url

    Fixing these took care of the page that previews/sets themes.

 Thanks again ...

Still lost on this :(

Getting an error on line 37, but that line is empty :(

Don't know much about php though.

When I try to run convert.php I get:

Code: [Select]
Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_ENCAPSED_AND_WHITESPACE,
expecting T_STRING or T_VARIABLE or T_NUM_STRING in
/home/ldsxonl/public_html/SM/convert.php on line 1368

Any ideas on this one? I have moved to a new host (did a full recover from a full backup in cPanel) and my site was working fine. I am running phpBB 2.0.11 currently, I have done a fresh install of SMF 1.1 RC2 into directory SM and uploaded the convert and sql files into the SM directory. hxxp:www.lds-online-forum.com/SM/convert.php [nonactive]

After the convertion I plan on moving the SMF install to the root of the website and replacing phpBB. The SMF is running it's own separate database so that I can just delete the phpBB database once I confirm everything is ok.

Thank you in advance for your help.
