Software: phpBB
Version: 2.0.19 and up

This is the official support topic for phpBB converter.  Use this topic to ask for support for this converter.  I merged all the changes that were floating around.  Lets use this topic to get a final working version.

Changelog
! Convert smileys. (phpbb2_to_smf.sql)
! When converting attachments cast width and height as a string. (phpbb2_to_smf.sql)
! Merged all the small changes floating around into one file. (phpbb2_to_smf.sql)
! When converting attachments set the width and height for images (phpbb2_to_smf.sql)
! Bug in signature conversion. (phpbb2_to_smf.sql)

convert.php
Use this convert.php with the .sql file attached in this topic.

This is a converter for phpBB to SMF.
If your already using SMF, then these converters will not help you much.

Otherwise you will need to detail more what isn't working with the converter.

Please post the sql in text form here, if possible?
Do I need to run the task in my database first?
All I have is convert.php uploaded.
Also- my board is 2.017.
Please advise, it's greatly appreciated.

Hello all, just looking for a quick bit of help and wondering where the tutorial or reference file is to get the converter all set up properly. I looked at, hxxp:www.lunarforums.com/lunarpages_how_tos/quickly_convert_phpbb_to_smf_after_installing_smf-t25926.0.html [nonactive]

...however the file names were incorrect and couldn't find it, I ended up downloading "smf_1-1-2_phpbb2_converter" Is this correct?

Thanks,
Daniel

I would suggest using the convert.php and .sql file linked to in the first post of this topic as they are updated more often than the downloads page is.

It will work with SMF 1.1.5

I have downloaded: "phpbb2_to_smf.sql." Is there anything else I need to download? If so, where can I find it?

Also, what do I need to do in order to convert the posts? The forum we are using ishxxp:fogforums.lumak.net/index.php?sid=ad95ea946331784511b5ca533291b3d1&Itemid=35 [nonactive] but it was a free installable forum and don't have FTP acces to it, our new forum at hxxp:fog-gaming.com/forum [nonactive]  we do have FTP access. So I need to upload phpbb2_to_smf.sql" to the FoG Gaming hosted forum, then what next?

Thanks!
Daniel

Got that! :P Now I need to change certain variables to point it on which forum to pull it from right? Can someone outline or link me to the directions on how to do this, or if someone is really nice they can do it for me and I'll give them all the passwords and stuff? (If I was older than 14, I would give you some money via PayPal! :P)

The convert.php has input fields for all these variables ;)
You just put in the paths (not urls) to the forums (If you put the convert.php in your SMF folder then thats one you don't need to set :P )
It also needs your SMF mysql password for security reasons.

So if I got a forum using one of those free forums where you just don't fill in anything from like hxxp:freeforums.org [nonactive] and don't know this information then I'm screwed? My fourms are hxxp:fogforums.lumak.net/ [nonactive]

To be able to convert the data from the old forum (this case phpbb) and the SMF forum must be on the same database server.
You can't have it in two different locations.
This is because the converter uses the same connection while converting.

I tried converting from PHPBB2 to SMF, everything seems fine except the attachments are not there. The PHPBB2 is using the attachment mod.

Any way to solve this?

Incognitus

When I launch Convert.php, it doesn't even list the attachment mod:

Convert selected areas ONLY: Ranks...
Groups...
Members...
Additional member groups...
Categories...
Boards...
Topics...
Posts (this may take some time)...
Polls...
Poll options...
Poll votes...
Personal messages (step 1)...
Personal messages (step 2)...
Board access...
Group access...
Avatar gallery images...


It completes sucessfully, but does not convert the attachments.

The forum is here: http://www.thinkfnwiki.com/smf [nofollow]


Incognitus

There's some kind of problem with the .sql file on the first page, the .sql file on the 3rd page recognizes the attachment mod, the one on the first, does not.

SleePy

There is multiple ones on page 3, can you point out which one you used?
I can try to look at it and see what is difference and fix the bug.

I used the last one with the present convert.php.

But that didn't work either, it just recognized the attachement mod whereas the .sql on the first page didn't.

Now I managed to convert the phpbb2 to smf, using the old convert.php / .sql from the download page, but all the attachments show up as links to files instead of pictures. Any way around that?

I think the .sql on the first page might somehow not be the most recent .sql, the size is much smaller ... unless you somehow optimized it.
