SMF Version: SMF 1.1.1
Hello all, ( first Post :D )

I am currently installing a few boards to see where I want to change to when I have finished my design.. I tried converting from a PHPBB board I am currently using over to SMF but I get the following error:

QuoteSorry, the database connection information used in the specified installation of SMF cannot access the installation of phpBB2. This may either mean that the installation doesn't exist, or that the MySQL account used does not have permissions to access it.

The error MySQL gave was: SELECT command denied to user '********'@'********' for table 'board_users'

Any help would be grand.. :D

According to that error message it appears that the mysql user account you have set up does not have the privilege to select the table board_users. You need to make sure the mysql user account you use has full privileges so it can do what is needed.

What aka is trying to say, is that you need to add the SMF database user to the phpBB database.  If your host doesn't allow you to do that what you can do is reinstall SMF in the same database as phpBB.

    Done exactly how ya said and works like a charm.. My host wouldnt allow me to change priv etc.. So I just copied over the config file from phpbb into the same directory as smf and edited setting for same DB..

    I must say the conversion is very good I have prob one issue... Some post have [/img] or [/list] showing in a post.. is there a way of getting these posts to show up the same in the options somewhere..

    Also I have noticed I am missing 15 members from the conversion?

    Neoszion can you please make a post about this in the official support topic for the phpBB 2.0.19+ converter.  That way all bug reports are kept in one place.
