Title: [SMF Converter] phpBB - 2.0.19+
Post by: JayBachatero on January 13, 2007, 02:47:08 AM
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 (http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=140741.0) with the .sql file attached in this topic.

The attachment in this post is the convert.php so is the .sql file somewhere else?

The attachments were transferred OK. :)
One small bug though...the Stickies were transferred but the Announcements were not transferred. So all the Announcements are missing in SMF. I don't really mind because I can re-write them, but you might want to check the code and see if you can find something obvious that wrong.

Every thing worked fine for me except for the custom titles being pulled over as member groups and 'phpbb' being pre-fixed to all member groups names.
Title: Re: [SMF Converter] phpBB - 2.0.19+
Post by: JayBachatero on January 14, 2007, 05:12:01 PM
The phpBB prefix for the membergroups is a converter setting.  Not sure why it's done like that.  I'll check and see what's going on.

I run a phpBB2 2.0.21 forum with UTF-8 charset and utf8-general collation database. On the forum there are posts both in greek and english. I used the converter which worked flawlesly but the greek posts are not displayed correctly anymore. I used the utf-8 support in the smf setup, I tried the html->utf-8 from the admin panel but no progress. When I post a new greek topic in the forum the characters are displayed correctly (obviously the forum is UTF-8 compatible). Does the converter support UTF-8? Any working solution or idea? Thnx in advance.

P.S. Same problem: http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=133813.0 (http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=133813.0)  I followed your advise. Didn't work.

Madru I'll see what I can do about the UTF-8 stuff.  I thought converting the database before hand would help but I guess not.

I think that there are no "announcements" in core SMF. In my conversion I also lost all announcements, but I never saw an option to create them.

There is a "topic announcement" but what is does is to send a mail to the selected membergourps, with that topic "announced".
Title: Re: [SMF Converter] phpBB - 2.0.19+
Post by: JayBachatero on January 18, 2007, 11:50:08 AM
Margarett is correct.  There is no global announcement feature in SMF.  There is mod for though.

Just a note to anyone who has category hierarchy (subforums) mod by ptirhiik for phpbb installed.

This converter works fine .. but if anyone is in any additional groups (apart from Registered Users),  when the forum converts these user; privileges will be a bit askew and they may not be part of the 'Regular Users' Group.

There is probably an easier way to fix this then what I did which was to set everyones primary group ( apart from admins ) to regular users , and just used the additional groups to give them access to the restricted forums.

I tried the converter from http://www.simplemachines.org/download/?converters but it had several issues.
-First character of signature missing
This seems to be solved by. I will try the converter from the first post.

-Individual ban controls from phpbb being imported as individual bans (instead of ban triggers)
It would be good if the ban controls could be imported by type with each entry being a new ban trigger under that type..
For example:

Ban Name: Banned Emails
Triggers
-*@spammer.com
-*@badsite.net
-*@xxx.org

Ban Name: Banned IP
Triggers
-111.222.333.4*
-111.222.567.*
-111.222.111.*
-111.222.444.7*

And so on..
I wonder how this works with the current converter.

-Announcements
I dont really need to convert announcements as announcements..but perhaps it can be stickied instead ?

You need to use the converter here not on that page.  I haven't committed these changes to CVS.

Tried it and it works :-)
Havnt checked how the ban controls were imported yet..

I did add 2 things to the SQL,
-add ordering to the smilies when imported (so it will be in the same order as it was in phpbb.
-convert announcements as sticky topics
Title: Re: [SMF Converter] phpBB - 2.0.19+
Post by: JayBachatero on January 28, 2007, 02:00:56 PM
Well I haven't looked at the ban control stuff.

In regards to the other changes I'll look into adding that to the converter as well.

Continued from a post made in another forum:

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?
Title: Re: [SMF Converter] phpBB - 2.0.19+

lol I cant now.. Every post I look at there isnt an issue if I find one I will let ya know.. I did notice that any Symbol like: £ will turn out like this now: £

Sorry to be a pain :(

Post by: JayBachatero on January 28, 2007, 06:49:05 PM
What I think is going on with the img and list tags is that they are being used in the wrong order.  Like a block level tag inside an inline tag.
test
Code: [Select]
test[/color]  Something like that.

Missing members? Are they members of a specific type? Banned, not active, etc...
i havnt checked if all members have been converted over...perhaps i need to check too

I think you are right they are banned or inactive members..

Does it matter in SMF which way round you use it? or can you not say put some text in a list and change the font?

Neoszion in SMF it matters the order in which you put the tags since SMF is xhtml strict.

I'm not sure.

Almost everyone is saying they have the same problems.

They can't post or reply to all forums, esp. subforums. They can't view PM's or profiles any longer. Nor edit their profiles.

I've created a non-admin account, and it's the same effect e.e

To tell you the truth I don't even know.  I think they will probably be transfered as hidden.

Ok give this a try.  SInge phpBB doesn't have a column to show if a smiley is hidden i made it that it will show the first 25 smileys and add the rest of the smileys to the popup.

At a later date I'll be doing a mod to put them back in categories, as they were on the phpBB2 system.  Have to get them into the system first though.   ;)

Well I don't really know how phpBB does this.  I should look more into it and see if I can make the converter use the categories to it's advantage.

It's a mod, not standard for phpBB2, so it would only be of very limited use.  I would imagine you'd prefer to keep your converter for a "plain vanilla" install of phpBB?

A similar mod for SMF would probably be a good idea, which is why I intend to create one, once I'm more familiar with the software.  I've made a number of my own mods for phpBB2 in the past, but I have nil experience with SMF yet.
Title: Re: [SMF Converter] phpBB - 2.0.19+
Post by: JayBachatero on February 01, 2007, 12:34:28 AM
Well we support the attachments mod in the converter.  Then again that mod is one of the most popular mods fr phpBB.  I guess it all depends on how much people request the mod.

That would be great to see more mods for SMF :).

Looks like we only have partial success Jay...

Code: [Select]
Converting smileys... Successful.
Converting censored words... Successful.
Converting reserved names... Successful.
Converting banned users... Successful.
Converting settings... Successful.
Converting attachment mod (if installed)...
Parse error: parse error in /home/******/*****.com/html/forums/convert.php(668) : eval()'d code on line 63
Error in convert script phpbb2_to_smf.sql on line 1039!
Successful.
Recalculating forum statistics... Successful.

It seems to have balked at the attachments.  I've had problems with them in the past (forum was hacked 18 months ago) and I suspect there may be a couple of attachments that are missing.

What was the next step in the script?

Uh-oh...  Just checked the forum and none of the smilies went to the popup.  All 1,537 of 'em are in the top section.  LOL  Sure makes for a crowded screen when posting!

Yes, I know, you've got to be asking, "What the heck does he need all those smilies for?"

Long story, let's just say I have some very strange people on my system, and that there would be a revolution if I got rid of very many of them.

*Suggestion*  Make the script put all the smilies in the popup, and then I can just move the ones I want to the menu.

BTW Jay, I just want to thank you again for the help you give all the visitors here, not just me.

Jay, a question, and a couple of suggestions for improving your converter...

Question:

Should anything, in particular, be done before running the new script?  (ie: delete the smilies, etc.)

Suggestions:

Thanks for the kind words Bernie. :)

Question:

No need to.  If anything needs to be done the converter will do it for you.

Suggestions:
  • On importing the ban list(s) from phpBB make the IP address, email address, etc. the actual name of the ban, rather than "migrated_ban_1006" or whatever.  Makes it difficult to know what each one is, or find one in particular to modify.  (I have 144 pages of them now.)  Yes, I realize you can browse by trigger, but the 'Notes' section already says it's migrated and the default listing shows them by name.
  • Give an option to combine all of a particular type of ban (IP, email, etc.) into a single ban, with multiple triggers, or as individual bans.
  • When importing smileys, put them into a new set named "imported".

To be honest I would have to look into how the banning works in SMF.  Never really had to work with it so never looked into how it works.  It shouldn't be to hard to do.

The smileys are kept in the original dir that they wre in phpBB.  They are just copied over.  So I'm not sure about moving them to 1 separate dir.

  • Give an option to combine all of a particular type of ban (IP, email, etc.) into a single ban, with multiple triggers, or as individual bans.
  • When importing smileys, put them into a new set named "imported".

To be honest I would have to look into how the banning works in SMF.  Never really had to work with it so never looked into how it works.  It shouldn't be to hard to do.

The smileys are kept in the original dir that they wre in phpBB.  They are just copied over.  So I'm not sure about moving them to 1 separate dir.

Ah, that's good to know.  I had not really looked at where and how the smilies that were imported were being stored yet.  If I understand you correctly then they are still in the directory that phpBB stored them in, so deleting the phpBB directories after the conversion would lose all those graphics files.  I'll have to create a new directory for them, and change the path in SMF.

Being a high rated site (Google) ours had significant problems with spammers and spammer bots.  The cure, for us, was in banning certain IP addresses, or ranges of IP addresses, as well as dozens of email domains.  Thus, 144 pages of bans that were imported.

BTW, the converter is not working well with the attachments.  I'm getting a lot of errors about missing files (possible, as I noted earlier) and bombing out with an SQL error.

I am trying to use this converter and not having much luck.  When I enter the settings that I think are right, this is the error I get:

Unable to find the settings for phpBB2. Please double check the path and try again.

Am I suppossed to be pointing this form to the live db?  I made a backup of the db and uploaded it to my new forum directory and tried to input that path, but I am getting the same error.

I would like to convert my phpBB forum to SMF, but I'm also using a portal on it, will that be a problem, or will it just remove it?
also a readme file would be nice with the download with instructions on what to do. I have no clue how to do this or even how to start  :-\ .
Will it totally delete all the phpbb files and replace them with smf?
Will it remove all tables and rows from the DB that are not used in SMF?

Sorry about the questions, but the idea of doing this terrifies me, I'm afraid something will go wrong I'm going to lose all or parts of the content in my forum thats been up and active for over 2 years(yes even with making a backup) lol

Any help with this would be GREATLY appreciated :)

Thanks

heh yeah I JUST found that and came back to edit my post lol
one thing it didn't mention is, after its converted what do I do with the old forum files? can I delete them and the phpbb DB tables?
And if my phpBB forum is at mydomain.com and I install SMF in mydomain.com/smf and convert will I still have to use that path to the new smf forum? or will it be accessable with mydomain.com?

Post by: JayBachatero on February 04, 2007, 01:37:55 AM
You can delete your old forum and database.

After you install smf to the smf dir you can then move it to the root dir and use repair_settings.php to fix the paths.
What is repair_settings.php? (http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=18096.0)

Jay, I had to reinstall the forum, and the DB, because of something I screwed up.  Anyway, even with the new sql it's still putting all the smilies in the post window, and none in the popup.  I'll do a regular sql query to reset the hidden code for all of them to "2", then move the few I want displayed in the post window up there.  (I'm also quite willing to test any changes to the script, since the new forum isn't live yet)

That should hold me over until I can write a mod that will categorize them and put them in tabbed popup windows.

Again, you've been a huge help here and I thank you sincerely.

WOW, that went great! no errors at all. I'm still checking the forum for anything missing but looks good so far :D

One thing I noticed is that the post count titles didn't go over well...all of the title have phpbb infront of them lol
for example, one title was 'Warlord' and instead it says 'phpbb Warlord'  LOL All of the  membergroup names also have phpbb in front of them.
Also some of the  [ url ] and [ img ] tags in sigs are messed up adn (this is the strange part) there are some posts that say they from guest(deleted or banned members?) in some threads that aren't even in the old forum! LOL

Actually the tag thing I think has more to do with the very first character in all the sigs being missing...

5th time was the charm Jay.  All the smilies are now in correct locations.

I believe what SRaven is talking about is that the converter prepends "phpbb" onto the name of any member group or rank that it carries over.  It would probably be better to just bring the groups and ranks over under their original names, and only make a change in case of conflict.

One of the problems faced by anyone trying to convert over is that there's a ton of setup work to do, particularly with permissions and membergroups.  That alone can take a day or more.  If you've closed down your previous system, all well and good.  But, if you're keeping phpBB "live" while you work on the new system, then you have the problem of importing any new posts/members without undoing all the changes you just made.

It might work better, for those kinds of situations, to have the converter pause for confirmation between tasks, giving the option to skip tasks.  In the above example, you could skip all tasks except the copying over of topics and posts, and not have to worry that you'll have to do everything all over again.

Added ordering to smilies and converting between post and popup smilies.

Code: [Select]
SELECT code AS code, smile_url AS filename, emoticon AS description, smilies_id AS smileyOrder, IF(smilies_id > 25, 2, 0) AS hidden
FROM {$from_prefix}smilies
ORDER BY smilies_id;

Works great now  :)
Only problem is multiple smilies codes sharing the same icon.
Code: [Select]
;) and ;-) =  ;)
The same image shows up twice in the post form/popup.
If there was a way to hide the first one, and set everything else to hidden..right now i have to do that manually  :(

As for the duplicate entries when converting posts, try putting your forum in maintenance mode or offline before you start the conversion.

That should hold me over until I can write a mod that will categorize them and put them in tabbed popup windows.

Sounds like a great mod in the making  :D
Makes sense for forums with lots of smilies

@Bernie: I'm not sure what's the reason to adding phpbb as a prefix for membergroups.  I would have to get Grudge to answer that one.

I regards to having the converter pause/resume/skip I've been wanting to do this for a while now but I just don't have the time to work too much on the converter besides fixing it and making sure it's working correctly.

etdwh I don't get what you mean about the ;-) and ;).  They are supposed to show the same image.

its actually not really a case of messed up tags.. where the problem is, is that the first character in the sigs have dissappeared. so, if you have an img  or url in your sig it now looks like:
Quote
url=http://blah blah]blah blah[/url]  or
img][/img]
and if its text, the first letter is missing.

Umm I set it correctly on the convert file. Open the file.  There is a line like this "$row['signature'] = substr($row['signature'], 0, 65534);".  Does the line match or is there a 1 after $row['signature']?

etdwh I don't get what you mean about the ;-) and ;).  They are supposed to show the same image.

In phpbb (not sure how), its possible to have several codes for the same image.
So..;-) :wink: and '; )' [<--i added a extra space] will show ;) . But, only one code is shown in the popup/post forum.
So users only see '; )' is the post form. But if they manually enter :wink: or ;-)..its still shows the image ;)

In SMF, i need to set the smiley for ;-) and :wink: to hidden for the same effect

I hope you get what i mean.

It can be done with the converter but I think its best if left for the admin to do.  That way they can select what they want hidden and what they want to be shown.

Yes I agree with you. For instance the ;) has 3 codes:

And the first one is
Code: [Select]
:wink:. Well, I like the
Code: [Select]
;) much more, so I changed it my way ;)

I agree, thats why i have created a seperate SQL script to setup the smilies once the conversion is complete. ;)
There is about 200+ smilies in my forum now, so manually editing it ONCE should be enough  :D

So far so good. I have been doing all the conversions as a test at home with no problems. Hopefully the live conversion goes well  :-\

Its just a collection of SQL statements to empty the smilies table and insert everything the way i like. Basically, i just setup the smilies the way i like once, then export the smilies table to a SQL script.
Once I have converted the forum, i just use phpMyAdmin to run the SQL script. No need to setup the smilies again.

Ah, okay, that's an improvement upon the way Jay handles them in his converter script, for your setup at least.

Mine is a little more complex since I've got over 7 times the number you have and they're categorized.  I really need to write that mod for SMF, but I've been too busy.

I have done it in another way... As I made several conversions to get used to SMF, one of those times I set up all the smileys the way I want. Then I saved the table "smf_smileys" and the smileys folder. When it was "final" I overwritten the smilies table with the "complete" one, and also the smileys folder. There is no connection (indexes or whatever) to other tables, so you can just "paste" a previous table ;)

 OK,
 I am in the process of installing SMF to start converting. However, I keep getting this message.

The installer was unable to access the "smf" database. With some hosts, you have to create the database in your administration panel before SMF can use it. Some also add prefixes - like your username - to your database names.

 I tried making a database in Mysql, but it keeps getting this error message. I know I sound stupid, but this is my first with php.

Hi I am also new to this stuff.
Have you installed your SMF in your server?
Does it work properly ?
If so you can start converting your forum.

Did you guys install SMF before converting?  You need to have SMF up and running before converting.

last night i ran the converter using the version available on the download page which i also downloaded last night.  from the look of things, i shouldn't have run that version.

my users are experiencing all the problems i've seen mentioned in this thread:

phpbb added to their ranking
unable to access profiles, make posts, etc
permissions to hidden sections removed

I've not seen anything in the thread about whether or not those problems are resolved by using the new converter.  Can I assume that they have been, or is this an unresolved issue?  If a new converter will fix it, then I can easily remove the old DB and start from scratch.

You need to use the converter form this topic.  Not the one from the download page.

Put those files in the spjallid folder.  The converter will erase ALL posts members and other data prior to the conversion.

hi friends,
i used this converter to convert from phpbb2 to smf,
and it worked but there is a problem,
my forum is a turkish forum and while converting from phpbb, the converter couldnt convert turkish characters correctly,
my forums db's language set is latin5,

and i added

mysql_query("SET NAMES 'latin5'");
mysql_query("SET CHARACTER SET latin5");

these lines into convert.php

but still i couldnt solve problem,
also i tried tu use
mysql_query("SET NAMES 'utf8'");
but i couldnt solve this problem,

in phpbb2 's db, turkish characters stored correctly, but in smf's tables, turkish characters decomposed,
also when i used the turkish language file for smf forum, smf shows all turkish characters wrong, but if use turkish utf8 language pack, smf shows some turkish charecters wrong and shows some of them corectly,

What can i do now?
anyone can help me?

Post by: driveForOne on February 28, 2007, 11:01:48 AM
my db's charset is latin5, so phpbb tables charset is latin5,
What charset are the SMF tables in?  For phpBB tables?

phpbb s tables charset is latin5, but i noticed that smf tables charset is latin1, so i deleted smf tables and then created with latin5 charset,
then i tried to convert with orijinal convert.php but the same problem still exist,
then i added these lines to convert.php


mysql_query("SET NAMES 'latin5'");
mysql_query("SET character_set_connection = 'latin5'");
mysql_query("SET character_set_client = 'latin5'");
mysql_query("SET character_set_results = 'latin5'");

and then i converted succesfully..

thanx a lot :)

i should add that, i am using turkish utf 8 language pack,
in normal turkish language pack, it doesnt work :)

How well does this converter work? Does it convert it to a fully functional SMF board, with all the bells and whistles? What about a heavily modded phpBB board, will it convert it with no problems? Can I back up and restore the phpBB board if there are errors with the conversion? I ask because I have ran a phpBB board for years and just recently changed to a SMF board. Some members are having problems registering. I thought if I could convert the phpBB board, I'd give that a try to see how it turns out, but restore it if there are problems.

I'm using the latest convert.php and phpbb2_to_smf.sql from this thread.

Any ideas?
You need to give smf access to the phpBB database.

Sorry. Forgot to mention that. The smf MySQL user has full privileges for the phpBB database. In fact I even gave it the same privileges as the MySQL root user to no avail.

I should also mention that I'm running phpBB 2.0.22

I've triple checked my "Path to SMF" and "Path to phpBB2" and each of those fields has "This may be the right path." below them.

Thanks for your help Jay!

You need to use the converter here not on that page.  I haven't committed these changes to CVS.

Tried it and it works :-)
Havnt checked how the ban controls were imported yet..

I did add 2 things to the SQL,
-add ordering to the smilies when imported (so it will be in the same order as it was in phpbb.
-convert announcements as sticky topics

Hi folks.

I am wondering if you can share the code and how you added the two fixes that you mentioned?
thanks,

Ok I had a typo for the attachments stuff thus the error.

Yea I already asked myself that question :P.  Why the heck does he has so many of them :P.  I just use ~3 :P :) and ;)

Also I changed the smileys stuff around to see if the query would run now.

Hi Jay,
Thanks for your help on the converter.  Just so I understand, when you post a fixed sql file within this thread, should I ignore it, if I already got the one that is posted on Page  One of this thread?

I am a lil confused here, thanks

No it was after I posted that one.  This is another version.

Just tried it...  100% success.  No errors reported.

I'll go look and see how it did in what it imported and post you a report later.
 

Hi,
Will you let us know in here when your board goes online with SMF, as I would love to see it!

You can delete your old forum and database.

After you install smf to the smf dir you can then move it to the root dir and use repair_settings.php to fix the paths.
What is repair_settings.php? (http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=18096.0)

I just dl that, and I think it should be zipped up with all the converters.

Just try the file that I posted.

this is a little unrelated, but, when I reply with quote here, and hit POST, the screen that I am returned to, is BLANK.  I have to copy the url of this thread into my browser address window in order to come right back.

Umm I set it correctly on the convert file. Open the file.  There is a line like this "$row['signature'] = substr($row['signature'], 0, 65534);".  Does the line match or is there a 1 after $row['signature']?

Found that line in the sql file, not the convert file(convert.php)...
and this is what it says in the file I have:

$row['signature'] = substr($row['signature'], 1, 65534);
So yes, there was a 1

I just checked mine also, the one with the 1 is the sql file in the zip file on the page with the list of converters.

Yes I agree with you. For instance the ;) has 3 codes:
Code: [Select]
;)
;-)
:wink:

And the first one is
Code: [Select]
:wink:. Well, I like the
Code: [Select]
;) much more, so I changed it my way ;)

I agree, thats why i have created a seperate SQL script to setup the smilies once the conversion is complete. ;)
There is about 200+ smilies in my forum now, so manually editing it ONCE should be enough  :D

So far so good. I have been doing all the conversions as a test at home with no problems. Hopefully the live conversion goes well  :-\

hi,
can you share that script?

I found where the phpBB Newbie is, after conversion.  It is in the ranking names, so you can just modify it after you convert.

no biggie

I'll be happy to Ladynada, but it won't be for awhile yet.  I just took on another project with a higher priority, so getting switched to SMF is on the back burner for the moment.

Also, since it's a WWII history and wargaming board I'm not sure just how interesting you'd find it.  Great community though, a genuine "virtual band of brothers".

Hi Jay,
I have a report on the converter for phpbb to smf.  The avatars folders from phpbb are imported but you put them under the gallery folder, and I think they should go under the avatars folder, just like the actors one is.  I am moving mine there, and they show as being available that way.

Heya Jay,
Well, as long as you keep them in their directories it is easy to move them to where SMF will see them.  but yea, in the attachment directory would be perfect, because I had a little fiasco with my SMF creating htaccess file in the attachment directory and I think I am overworked on the bbs because all my folder strings in the config were hosed up.  Finally got it all fixed.
thanks Dude!

Well, completed our forum migrations last weekend.
Its was a success  :D

There was one issue though...
In some cases, special members != regular members.

For example.
I set some boards to allow access for regular members. Meaning all registered members can access
However, some of our paid members (special group) complained they could not see those boards.
So i had to set the permission for all membergroups.
Im still investigating this, could be normal feature or just something wrong during conversion.

But in the end, its good to ditch phpbb and switch to SMF. Im loving it  :D

Yes, I spent some time today on the membergroups and permissions.  Something to take note of, is that to get more control and understand what you are doing, it is better to set permissions by boards, and set the one in question to LOCAL - that way you can set the permissions for that board separately from global permissions.

I hope that made sense.

also be careful with the set access to changing membergroups --- ie probably do not give that power to anyone until you are comfortable with using SMF and understand what it does.

also be careful of the manage database and config option, do not check that for anyone but yourself - again - unless you know for sure what it means for your board.

hope that helps, I was all in that today for hours

I love SMF it is very very well done, and I am impressed and blessed already!

I provide web hosting for some of my clients and I recently installed SMF for one of them instead of phpBB2, primarily to get a good look at it.  So far, I'm impressed and I'm considering converting a long time phpBB2 board over to SMF. 

My question is........How well does the conversion work.  If it's a lot of work, I might not have the time right now. On the plus side, this board is very vanilla in terms of very few if any modifications or hacks being installed.  Based on that, are my chances pretty good for a smooth transition?

Although my PHPBB only had a whopping FIVE users, the conversion was easy and accurate.  I also did it about three times, because I practiced on my local computer a couple of times first.

I love SMF, it is very powerful and intuitive and reminds me, fondly, of my BBS days.  I was a SysOp for years.

Hey Gonad!  Good to see another BBS'r on here.  I ran a few for several years in the 80's, and I'm in the BBS Documentary movie done two years ago.

My current phpBB2 system has about 2,100 members with well over 100k posts, about 3m hits per month and is very heavily modified yet, with a bit of help from Marvelous Jay we were able to do the conversion very smoothly.  Things to watch out for are permissions on specific boards, member groups, and banned IP's.  Many things get prefaced with "phpBB" and that can cause problems.  I've not brought our SMF system fully online yet, and I still have some work to do on it.  If your system is comparable to mine then plan on spending 12-16 hours getting it working. (Ranks and groups properly configured, bans fixed, important mods installed, boards and permissions properly set)

I'd suggest doing a couple of trial runs first (the conversion does not change or modify your phpBB info and files in any way whatsoever) and they try some test logins at different membership levels to make sure the permissions are correct.

Thanks for the tips.  I'll keep that in mind if I make the jump. The board that I'm thinking of converting has 300+ members and it's a "guild" board for an online game. 

I ran my BBS back in the 80's also. I think I pulled it down in the mid-1990's (95 or 96) if I remember right.  My board was listed in several books about the subject, etc.  It was known as "PC Solutions of Cleveland".  What was yours?

Thanks ladynada.

I looked further into the issue. Seems to affect all converted users, but not new users.
Somehow i didnt notice this when testing at home. Adding 0 to the users additionalGroups in the database helps.

But anyway, i just enable the permissions for each membergroup, and that makes sense too :-)

I sorta figured out why the groups are prefix with phpbb_.
This is so when you redo the conversion for any reason, it will be able to delete the groups correctly.
If not, you will get duplicate groups. So i made a change in the SQL file
Code: (phpbb2_to_smf.sql) [Select]
/******************************************************************************/
--- Converting ranks...
/******************************************************************************/

DELETE FROM {$to_prefix}membergroups WHERE ID_GROUP NOT IN (1,2,3);

This will keep the admin, global mod and another group...can't remember ATM  :P

If I run the conversion and then spend some time getting all the permissions and user groups right, for let's say a couple of hours.........and I think I'm ready to go live, there is probably no way to import just the message base again, right? 

I mean, if I do this to get all the posts that were made on phpBB2 during the configuration of SMF, the conversion would dork up all my work to reconfigure everything.

I guess there is simply no way to attempt to get all posts pulled over, unless I take down the phpBB2 board and leave it down during the re-config, right?

Right.  That's one of the main reasons I've not gone live with my version yet.  We average a few hundred posts a day, and have a very complex permissions system.  To do a proper conversion, and not lose anything, I'll have to put my forums offline for 24-48 hours, and I'm not ready to do that yet.

We do plan to upgrade our server in the next few months, as we're running out of storage and bandwidth (with 300 gigs you'd think that was impossible but...) so I'll probably do the full switchover during that process.

Check that last entry.......

Looks corrupt to me.  I'm guessing that you tried it a second time with the same result?

I really know squat about sql.

Problems with indexes of table `phpbb_sessions`

Assuming you have phpMyAdmin installed........Did you try to "repair" and then "optimize" your phpBB2 tables before attempting to convert them?

I tried several times to repair this, and it never seems to work.

You may want to post this in it's own thread, to make sure that Jay sees it.  I'm sure that he'll be able to help out.

I keep getting the error...

This converter was unable to find SMF in the path you specified.

Please double check the path, and that it is already installed there.

I have SMF in this path... /domains/mydomain/public_html/forum2
I have a copy of my PHPBB in this path... /domains/mydomain/public_html/forum3

The two files for the converter have been uploaded to forum2, but when I run convert.php and fill in those two paths and database password, I get...

This converter was unable to find SMF in the path you specified.

Please double check the path, and that it is already installed there.

Any suggestions?

Well, is SMF already installed (with administrator user and sample board)?

Well.......if all goes well with the work I've got to get done today, I'm going to pull down the phpBB2 board sometime tonight, install SMF and take a shot at converting everything over.   :o Wish me luck!  :)

Thanks........I ran the conversion and everything seems to have gone pretty good, except for a couple of minor glitches that I was able to figure out pretty quick.  I'm still learning SMF, especially how it handles permissions, etc.  But thus far, I like what I see.

1 issue which is turning out to be pretty big now is the links in the forum.

Old forum installed at: www.xxx.com/forum
New forum installed at: www.xxx.com/v2/forum

There are alot of links in the old forum asking users to refer to www.xxx.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=9070
Currently, this fails. Anyone have any ideas how to fix this? I am thinking of replacing the old file viewtopic.php with a simple php file which can redirect the link back to the new forum... :-\

EDIT: erm..just realized this is not something related to the converter...sorry for posting here..
If fact, the solution is also available: http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=118868.0

etdwh, there is one way, in fact... I also found out by myself...

Every link changes from:
www.something.com/viewtopic.php?t=xxxx
to:
www.something.com/index.php?topic=xxxx.0

So it should be possible to have phpmyadmin to change the "link" and adapt it.
But shure, the redirect solution is much easier ;)

Also, you can search for "viewtopic" and manually change the addresses :P

On my conversion, I actually had a lot of errors, but they were all related to a bunch of smilies that I had added to my old forum.  I figured I could live without those and simply didn't sweat it.  All the users and all the posts seem to have migrated over without a hitch.

I did have a couple of problems where I had a handful of special users who essentially only really had a "special title" and their permissions weren't right.  But I fixed that pretty easily by setting them as "no primary user group" and then making sure they were members of various other groups.  I then went into their profile and added their "custom title" and that pretty much took care of it.

Are my paths correct? Those are the actual paths used for FTP to each of the root folders, forum2 and forum3.

To answer Margaret... I have a fresh install of SMF in the forum2 folder. I have a copy of my PHPBB board in the forum3 folder. Both boards use the same database. Yet I still get...

This converter was unable to find SMF in the path you specified.

Please double check the path, and that it is already installed there.

What am I doing wrong when I try to use the converter from PHPBB to SMF?

Well, is SMF already installed (with administrator user and sample board)?
I keep getting the error...

This converter was unable to find SMF in the path you specified.

Please double check the path, and that it is already installed there.

I have a stock version of SMF in this path... /domains/mydomain/public_html/forum2
I have a copy of my PHPBB board in this path... /domains/mydomain/public_html/forum3

The two files for the converter have been uploaded to forum2, but when I run convert.php and fill in those two paths and database password, I get...

This converter was unable to find SMF in the path you specified.

Please double check the path, and that it is already installed there.

Any suggestions?

I mean, if you access:
www.yourdomain.com/forum2
You can see the demo board? And you can login with your admin user?

Thats a lot of links to modify manually  :D

Found a script which can do it automatically: http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=118868.0
Testing at home, it works!!
But its times out on our server.  :(
Will attempt to do a start-pause-start like how the current converter does it...

I have a problem I haven't seen mentioned here yet.  I'm trying to convert a phpbb 2.0.19 installation to a new install of SMF.

I have the installation of SMF in [www.myhosting.com]/snvhforum
I have the installation of phpbb in [www.myhosting.com]/snvhorse

The new installation of SMF went fine and works properly, there is only the administrator user there, no posts except what comes with the original installation.

I have downloaded the converter and the associated sql file from this topic.

When I run the converter, I get these messages:

Converting...
Successful.
Recalculating forum statistics... Successful.


Nothing is converted, the SMF installation is still the same.
I have tried various ways of addressing the paths required, with no change in the results.
I have even tried leaving the paths blank, with no change in the results.
I have verified that the PW used for the database is correct.

So,  what am I doing wrongly?

Thanks in advance for your reply, and for all you do to create and support these programs.   :)

hi,

i'm in the process of testing out smf with my enormous, heavily modded phpbb. with your help (searching other topics in this subforum) i was able to convert as far as step=2&substep=6&start=3700. this involved ignoring one duplicate key error for topics and increasing max_allowed_packet to get some of the larger posts through.

unfortunately:

Quote
Recalculating forum statistics... Unsuccessful!
This query:
ALTER TABLE `smf`.smf_smileys
ORDER BY LENGTH(code) DESC;
Caused the error:
You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'LENGTH(code) DESC' at line 2

syntax error!? any help would be much appreciated. thanks in advance.

edit: i'm using mysql 5.0.37.

Hi,

I must be really dense but I'm having a lot of trouble with this and would really appreciate some help...

I have downloaded the conversion kit from the download page (convert.php and phpBB2_to_smf.sql) but I see lots of references in this thread to "downloading the attachment from here".... but I can't find any attachments.  Where are they ?  All I can find are circular links that take me back to this thread ?!  Duh, how dense am I ?


Anyway, before trying this out on my forum I'm trying it out locally on my xampp localhost server.  I have the phpBB2 board and the smf board installed using the same xampp mysql database (using phpbb_ and smf_ table prefixes).  Both boards are working fine.

I have uploaded convert.php and phpBB2_to_smf.sql to the SMF folder..

Then when I run convert.php it brings up the page at which I enter the addresses of the two boards and I click PROCEED....

...then I get pages and pages of error messages and none of the phpBB2 data is loaded into the smf board::::

I'm having the same problem as marlarkey, I have the convert.php (the right one for phpBB) and the sql (that I got attached from the first post) in the root directory of a fresh installed SMF and I'm trying to convert from a phpBB 2.0.22 (/forum) to SMF (/forums) and I'm getting the exact same errors.  The paths are correct.

I have the same problem "duplicate entry..." trying to convert from phpbb 2.0.21 to SMF and looked in many threads here and noone actually gives any solution, just links to this post saying to download file from here - we all did, and he problem still exists. Please help

edit: well nevermind it seems that i downloaded this file as .htm and didnt overwrite the old one when uploading to the server, so the converting was still done with he old one. Now I changed it to .sql and it worked fine and convertion was succesfull

Okay I have read (http://docs.simplemachines.org/index.php?topic=15) and most of this topic, lots of info here.  But I do have some questions...

FIRST My Setup
1) SMF is installed on the same database as my phpBB using the prefix of smf_ and it is running
2) nothing has been configured or altered

Now I would like to ask some straight forward questions about going forward further with the conversion from phpBB.
1) Do I need to set up the categories and permisions in SMF or does the conversion do that for me from my phpBB data?

2) When converting does it leave the phpBB data intact so that our users can continue to use the phpBB site until we are ready to turn it over to SMF?

3) Is it recommended during the conversion process to turn off the phpBB while undergoing this procedure?

4) Can I install packages, mods, skins, etc before a final conversion to get the forums to have the features and look I want?

5) Last and most important, I assume it will over write the number 1 member, that is me the admin on the new SMF forum with the number 1 member from phpBB.

Thanks everyone in advance.

1 - Converter will pick most of  it. It's recommended that you have a look at the permissions after, anyway.
2 - Yes
3 - It's recommended that you have it in maintenance mode
4 - Yes, if they do not interfere with database. As for themes, graphics, etc, no problem.
5 - All existing SMF database information will be overwritten. The created SMF admin will be gone.

6 - You did not asked for it but here it goes. I recommend that you convert more than once, so that you can go and adjust SMF, get familiar, and do it over and over.
6.1 - You might want to move SMF to a different folder after install. Take a look at "repair_settings.php" in the downloads page.

Are you using the converter from this topic?

You don't install it in package manager, it is NOT a MOD!

You shoud download "convert.php" and "phpbb2_to_smf.sql" files from THE FIRST TOPIC IN THIS THREAD, upload them both to your smf folder and rrun, from your browser:

I keep receiving the following error message :

The database password you entered was incorrect. Please make sure you are using the right password (for the SMF user!) and try it again. If in doubt, use the password from Settings.php in the SMF installation.

I have attempted to use both the admin password for my C-Panel login, as well as my admin password for SMF.

I have added the SMF user to the PHPbb MySQL database in the control panel. Still receiving the message.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Yes, you have to remove the "convert.php" file from your SMF forums directory; I think the converter has a check box to do so when it finishes, or you can log on via FTP and delete it from the server.

This is an excellent converter, so kudos to the author.&nbsp; I do have a problem that seems to have been solved for everyone else a while back, regarding attachments.

I'm not getting any of the attachments to appear.&nbsp; I've done the conversion 4 times, and even tried some of the "old code" found here on the third try (old code = bad idea).&nbsp; The attachments are in the SMF "attachments" folder, but they do not appear on any of the posts that I can see.

Twice I got an error message:

Quote
Warning: getimagesize() [function.getimagesize]: Read error! in /home/mysite/public_html/forums/convert.php(671) : eval()'d code on line 75

Is this related to my phpBB doing some resizing depending on the original size? 

Any ideas?

I found my problem by trying to enter a new message with photo attachment.  The converter appears to have copied over all of the attachments, but I had the setting too low in SMF in Admin > Attachments and Avatars > Max Attachment Folder Space.  Once I increased that to the 350MB I needed, they all showed up!

Man I am really struggling with this conversion.&nbsp; I got pretty far, but here is what I'm getting when I try to run the converter:

Quote
Unable to find the settings for phpBB2. Please double check the path and try again.


Before you continue
This converter assumes you have already installed SMF and that your installation is working properly. It copies posts and data from your "source" installation of phpBB2 into SMF, so it won't work without an installation of SMF. All or some of the data in your installation of SMF will be overwritten.
If the two softwares are installed in separate directories, the MySQL account SMF was installed using will need access to the other database. Either way, both must be installed on the same MySQL server.
Where are they?
The converter should only need to know where the two installations are, after which it should be able to handle everything for itself.

I ftp the php database backup into the same folder as the converter, so I really don't know what to do from here.&nbsp; Can anyone help this newbie out...?

I would really appreciate it,
John

I've tried something else...I downloaded a fresh version of phpbb and I copied my backup db into a dummy config.php and put it into the same directory as my smf.  The converter did something, but after displaying tons of code on the screen, it came back with the following error:

Quote
Sorry, 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.

I was just coming in to edit my post :)  I found the below in the support section and followed the instructions. I ran the convert and it seems to have worked. Everything is there so far. Thanks though :)

This is a topic for common errors that you might experience while converting to SMF.

Problem: SELECT command denied to user
Info: The cause of this error is that SMF and Software X are in separate databases and the SMF database user does not have access to Software X's database.
Fix: If your host has cPanel you can add the SMF database user to Software X's database.  If your host does not have cPanel what you can do is reinstall SMF in the same database as Software X.

I think the converter actually runs the phpBB application; in any case, I think it needs the full install of the phpBB forums to access to do the conversion.  I don't think you can point it to a database backup dump on your server and have it work.

Hi all,

This is my first post on this forum and the first thing I want to do/say is kudos to Jay. I am looking at all these posts and your responses, you're a divine intervention here  ;D, I raise my hat to you.

You don't get support like this in many places and even when you do, the smiles doesn't go with it. Keep up the good work my friend, there are people  here who apprecilove you tremendously for it.

That said, here's my little dilemma which brings me here.

My hosting company suffered a server loss and the night before it happened I was able to do a backup of my database to a sql file. They were not able to get my forum back up and running due to some database/MySQL issues but what can I say.

Anyway, I didn't want to lose the posts because it is an IT Security board and we have some valuable info in it for the past 2yrs that I needed to keep. So now I found this forum board/tool and I am loving everything I have seen about it so far.

I bought a new hosting package with a new hosting provider and I uploaded the sql file and the converter files after installing SMF and getting the board running.

When I try to do the conversion I get this error;

Code: [Select]
The converter detected that your host has open_basedir enabled on this server. Please ask your host to disable this setting or try moving the contents of your phpBB2 to the public html folder of your site.
The files are all in the right place and so I don't know what to do now.

Please advise and keep up the good work.

Have a great day, much appreciloved.

The Suite

Well that shouldn't be happening but it appears some reason that the converter can't find its group thus returning null

Find:
Code: [Select]
u.user_posts AS posts, IF(u.user_level = 1, 1, mg.ID_GROUP) AS ID_GROUP,
Replace:
Code: [Select]
u.user_posts AS posts, IF(u.user_level = 1, 1, if(NULL, 0, mg.ID_GROUP)) AS ID_GROUP,
That should fix it hopefully.

your fix didn't work as posted, but it pointed me in the right direction; since i'm the only admin or moderator on the board i'm trying to convert, i just changed that line to:

Code: [Select]
u.user_posts AS posts, IF(u.user_level = 1, 1, 0) AS ID_GROUP,
and the rest worked fine until i ran into the same error as mainedan a couple of posts above; i removed the convert_query() call you mentioned, and the rest of it went smooth as silk.

i appreciate the help; my board isn't that big, but with ~700 members and ~90,000 posts, i wouldn't have even tried to convert it manually.

thanks again! :)

I'm trying to convert my phpbb 2.0.19 from one site, to SMF which I've just created on another site.  What files do I need to move over to the new site?  I've uploaded the backup of my old phpbb (phpbb_db_backup.sql) as well as the convert.php and phpbb2_to_smf.sql and I get an error when I run the convert.php saying "Unable to find the settings for phpBB2. Please double check the path and try again."

I then copied all my phpBB files to a phpBB directory on my new domain/server and when I try to run the convert.php I get the following error, "Sorry, 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 'qwbjauvy_smf1'@'localhost' for table 'phpbb_users'"

What can I be doing wrong.  First time at this, so if someone can give a somewhat detailed explanation, it would be greatly appreciated.

Did you import the database backup into the database?

The error you gave you should ask your host. This error comes from the mysql user you are using not having access to the other database.
They can point you in the right direction to get this fixed so your mysql user can access both databases.

I think I found a bug in the converter. [size bbcode in the signature isn't properly converted.
This in the converter:
Line 147
Code: [Select]
$row['signature'] = preg_replace('~\[size=([789]|[012]\d)\]~i', '[size=$1px]', $row['signature']);
if ($row['signature_uid'] != '')
$row['signature'] = preg_replace('~(:u:|:1:|:)' . preg_quote($row['signature_uid'], '~') . '~i', '', $row['signature']);
But it should be:
Code: [Select]

the convert files go in the SMF folder.
The SMF and phpbb files can be in different folders.

Sorry, 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 '*********@smf1'@'localhost' for table 'phpbb_users'

whys it not letting me?

Common conversion errors. (http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=146192.0)

Post by: JayBachatero on August 21, 2007, 02:06:20 AM
I think I found a bug in the converter. [size bbcode in the signature isn't properly converted.
This in the converter:
Line 147
Code: [Select]
$row['signature'] = preg_replace('~\[size=([789]|[012]\d)\]~i', '[size=$1px]', $row['signature']);
if ($row['signature_uid'] != '')
$row['signature'] = preg_replace('~(:u:|:1:|:)' . preg_quote($row['signature_uid'], '~') . '~i', '', $row['signature']);
But it should be:
Code: [Select]
if ($row['signature_uid'] != '')
$row['signature'] = preg_replace('~(:u:|:1:|:)' . preg_quote($row['signature_uid'], '~') . '~i', '', $row['signature']);
$row['signature'] = preg_replace('~\[size=([789]|[012]\d)\]~i', '[size=$1px]', $row['signature']);

Fixed.

Post by: jackulator on August 22, 2007, 12:39:27 PM
EDIT - sorry - posted this reply in the wrong topic...

here's a recap/update of my situation from the beginning:

1. I had a phpbb 2 forum and wanted more features, so I uploaded smf 1-1-3 to a new folder on my site and it installed fine

2. I then wanted to bring over all of my posts/members etc from the phpbb forum, so I ran the converter tool

3. the converter tool was telling me that the user name for the new smf database did not have access to the database for the phpbb forum

4. I deleted the smf install and redid it in a new folder, but this time having smf 1-1-3 install it's data into the same database as the phpbb forum, which is what was recommended on this site

5. the conversion successfully got as far as converting topics, at which point it failed saying there was a duplicate topicID

6. I used phpMyAdmin and could not find any duplicate topicID, and after doing some manipulation of the data that the converter was telling me was causing the error, I came to the conclusion that I had better start again

7. I noticed that the converter tool I had used was 'smf_1-1-2_phpbb2_converter.zip', but the install of smf I had was 'smf_1-1-3_install.zip', so I decided to do another fresh smf install of smf 1-1-2 and perhaps the converter tool might work

8. I went to my host's database manager and created a blank database

9. I uploaded 1-1-2 to a new folder on my site, and told the smf install to create data in the new database from step 8, and the install went perfectly as usual

10. I ran the converter tool again, and once again was told that the user name for the smf database did not have access to the phpbb forum, so I went to my host's control panel and found that they have it set up so that one cannot simply add a preexisting user to multiple databases, but rather one could click 'create user' and it would generate a random username/password for a new user - so bottom line, there was no way I was going to be able to have the user for the new smf database be able to access the database for the old phpbb forum

11. so I talked with my host company, and at the moment they are, and I believe the terminology is correct (I know nothing of any of this stuff), going to INSERT the entire phpbb database into my new swf database

Once this is done I'm hoping that:

1. when I launch the converter tool I can enter the same database for smf and phpbb and the converter tool won't object

2. when the converter tool runs I won't end up with the same problem as before - the phantom duplicate topicIDs or whatever the problem was that I replied to in someone's earlier reply in this topic

3. be able to upgrade to smf 1-1-3 after the conversion is successfully completed

I hope there's a good reason why you're doing this..  :o

If the converter on the download page is out of date why don't you remove it or at least link to this topic?
There's no word about this inside the docs (http://docs.simplemachines.org/index.php?topic=15).

I'm really angry about this behaviour and I don't know if I want to switch to SMF anymore   :-\
I followed the docs and all I get are some unfriendly words that I haven't read (or at first found) this topic.

Please rethink your concept.

I installed my smf via fantastico which set up different pre-fixes, usernames and passwords than my fantastico/phpbb installation.

What can I do in my case interms of the converter? Because I get the permission error where smf cant read the phpbb2 installation as well...

With the converter from this topic, PHPBB 2.0.19 or greater and latest SMF version is fine.

What is the missing field issue?
Title: Re: [SMF Converter] phpBB - 2.0.19+
Post by: Jyggafey on September 06, 2007, 10:54:01 AM
Hi, we are currently preparing a move from phpbb 2.0.22 to smf 1.1.3.
Everything worked fine but there are topics and posts missing in smf. We could not determine any similarity for the missing posts so far, the only guess we currently have is that there are too many.
There are slightly above 21000 topics in phpBB and smf displays 18077 topics with 97654 posts, since that number in smf is just refined from the converted total sums stored on the board table and not recalculated (i guess), it cant be trusted but it shows a difference also.
The only hint of the missing topics is visible in the board display, there should be 15 topics per page but there are something between 0 and 13 topics per page (page count below is true for the total amount of posts there are just "empty" topic slots all over the place, tried playing with that value also).
We did not look into the converter so far, as we hope that somebody could have an idea what could have happened.
As last ressort we would like to know if somebody has ever attempted to write a script that recalculates the topics and posts from the existing data in the database instead of trusting the coloums in the board and topic tables.

find and fix errors action spams tons of:
Topic #7271 contains no (actual) messages.
and all related errors like missing subject, wrong last/first post etc
so ... maybe the phpbb_posts_text table has not been converted totally?
We had some php warnings and notices on the conversion complete page about missing indexes, could that have induced a too early "complete" message?

Post by: SKeeper on September 13, 2007, 01:49:10 PM
A quick question.  I am converting from phpBB 2.0.22.

Everything runs fine, except for one little problem.

Let's say a user:  Gern Blanston is quoted in a post.  When it's converted over it brings the quotes: 
Code: [Select]
[quote="Gern Blanston"] Quoted Text here ... [/quote]
This is displayed in the converted forum as: 
Quote from: Gern
Blanston Quoted Text here ...

When you click "Modify" and "Save" makes the quote appear correctly.

Looking at the base field in SQL it goes from: 
Code: [Select]
[quote="Gern Blanston"] to
Code: [Select]
[quote="Gern Blanston"]
When a user is quoted in the private messages area, this converts correctly during conversion.  I don't know enough about MySQL to understand why it's not doing it for the posts.

Thanks,
Keeper

EDIT:  Ok, revisited the personal messages.  They are off and on at best.  I think the ones that work are where the user actually typed out the quote string rather than used the quote button.

Anyway, I see a replace '"', '"' in the .sql file.  I changed that to '"','&quot;' and it seemed to do the trick.  I'm going to add that to the PM side as well and test it out.

Post by: SKeeper on September 13, 2007, 05:33:46 PM
I just converted.  I'm playing around with writing some Packages, and each time I reconvert.

Making that change fixed both the posts and the private messages.

If you want to see it, I can redo it from scratch...just let me know.

A combination of things?

I changed your line to
Code: [Select]
$row['body'] =  preg_replace('~\[quote="(.+?)"\]~is', '[quote author=&quot;$1&quot;]', $row['body']);
And the " in the Quote from: line go away.  Looks just like I want it.  Do you agree with this look?

I'm sorry to add on to your problems, i tried to convert to smf from phpBB2 and it gave me an error, keep in mind the directories are correct for both sources, the problem i suspect is that it's connecting to the wrong place to find the sql database, the error given was:

****
Sorry, 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 'random'@'65.36.215.12' for table 'phpbb_users'
****

however my sql database ip info is 'random'@'67.59.151.175', the converter doesn't give me the option to change the ip, can you assist?

Your user 'random' doesn't have rights to do selects.

1 - move phpBB
2 - convert

OR:
1 - backup your phpBB database
2 - upload it to a new database on your new server (use bigdump.php --> search here, lots of explanations)
3 - create a user for that database
4 - create a folder "forum" (or whatever you what to call your forum folder) and put there the file "configure.php" from phpBB configured with DB, DB_USER, DB_PASS.
5 - Upload and install SMF.
6 - Upload and run the converter
7 - delete "configure.php"

That's it ;)

What mods do you have installed for phpBB?  Seems like a problem with a different table structure or something. I can take a look into this.

Thanks for your reply. I only have 2 mods installed. Easy Mod and the attachment mod. My forums have been down for a week trying to get an import done. Any help will be truly appreciated.

Cheers,
Brad

totoy,

SMF is fairly newbie friendly. It is really simple. take a look at our demo site
http://support.simplemachines.org/demo/index.php
Login is just test for both.

Conversion is simple as well. Just upload the convert.php and sql file to your SMF install (SMF needs to be installed before you can convert) and then run the convert.php from your browser. Give it the proper input information and away it goes converting.

One more quick question.

The attachment I downloaded from the first page in this thread, the .sql file was 35kb in size.

The one contained in the phpBB2 zip file from the download is 32kb in size.

Which one should I upload to my server, the 35kb one or the 32kb one?. Or does it not matter which?.

Thanks.

Just downloaded the phpBB convert script. My first run through I got the error message about the ALTER TABLE statement with "ORDER BY LENGTH(code) DESC" in it that doesn't work. I saw some suggest just changing that to "ORDER BY code DESC", which helped. Should that not have been changed in the main script?

But now I have the problem that the first letter of every signature is cut off. I noticed a message about that from a year ago. Is anyone working on fixing that. I can't have all of my users lose the first letter of their signatures.

I'd be happy to go in and debug this problem if no one else has the time.

Thanks

Hello Everyone.

I'm having a little problem converting from phpBB2 to SMF. It tells me that 'This converter was unable to find SMF in the path you specified".
I double checked the path, and also made sure, that it was already installed there.

I have my SMF installation in the root directory  www.xxxx.es/"httpdocs"
And I have my phpBB under  www.xxxx.es/"httpdocs"/phpBB2

Also, I have my SMF DB, and my phpBB2 DB in the same server, but not together, and under diferent usernames.
I just don't know how to give privileges to the other user name for the other database, if that is causing the problem.

The password that I use, ofc is the one I got for the SMF DB

If you can help me out please. Thanks in advance. Gracias!

Post by: SleePy on October 30, 2007, 12:42:01 PM
Enter the path from the server not a url.
Commonly paths look like
/home/cpanelusername/public_html/

The simplest way to figure this out is upload this php script to your SMF directory and run it from your browser.

Code: [Select]
<?php
echo dirname(__FILE__);
?>

That should output the path that the converter script is looking for.

Thanks a lot SleePy,

It did work like a charm.

Tho now I'm getting a new error, that I know is related with the DB permissions. Since my knowled of phpmyadmin and sql, is not really extensive, and I've searched on .sql forums with no success, I would like, if its posible, for someone to help me deal with this.

The error is:
Quote
Sorry, 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 'xxxxxxxx'@'localhost' for table 'phpbb_users'

I understand the meaning of the error, and like I said, on the above post, I have both DB's separated, but on the same server. (I read it had to be done that way in order to conver it). Happen to be that, the phpBB DB and the SMF DB don't have the same user name, nor password. I have tried to add the same username, and password for both DBs, but it said that the username was already being used.

It sounds, like a very simple thing to me, and, even If I tried, I just can't figure out how to do it.

If anyone can help me, or would help me.

Thanks in advance.

I took out the "LENGTH" function from that SQL statement (why is that there, BTW, if it doesn't work?) and it seemed to work fine.

Now I have a different problem: phpBB uses Latin-1 for all its tables, while SMF uses UTF-8. I prefer UTF-8, which is one of many reasons I'm switching to SMF. But when I run convert.php the Latin-1 messages are not converted to UTF-8. So double curly quotes, for example, now show up as "“" in SMF. Is there way to make convert.php handle the character set conversion?

Thanks

I have a install of phpbb within nuke evo that I have to move to a new host.  Since I am moving the site I want to convert to XOOPS and SMF.  What is the best way to convert the phpbb to SMF?  Do I install the phpbb and restore the database, then install SMF, run the converter and import the converted database?  Where does the XOOPS/SMF bridge come into play?

Latest converter.php from this theme and latest corresponding sql-file leaves
Code: [Select]
[align=center][/align] in messages, I think it doesn't convert this tag.

Also leaves
Code: [Select]
[/color]if
Code: [Select]
[size=18]bla-bla-bla[color=blue]bla-bla[/size][/color]
Sorry if this item was already discussed here.

And why not to put latest versions of converters to the official download section on www.simplemachines.org ?

Post by: fx_55 on November 10, 2007, 02:11:57 PM
1. And there were problems with  "---* {$to_prefix}messages 200" in latest phpbb2_to_smf.sql, reduced it to 100, I think this setting must be in main interface of the converter or at least in the such error window, where it says that it can't convert some big post(s).

2. Changed code in latest convert.php
=========
ALTER TABLE {$to_prefix}smileys
ORDER BY LENTGH(code) DESC");
=========
to
=========
ALTER TABLE {$to_prefix}smileys
ORDER BY code DESC");
=========
to solve bug with SQL syntax on MySQL 5.0.xxx.

Post by: bebo94 on November 11, 2007, 05:30:53 PM
OK. So I downloaded the phpBB converter from the simplemachines website and it converted my phpBB 2.0.22 forum over to SMF 1.1.3. The conversion went without error but it did not have avatars and the first character of the signatures were dropped. So I get on the forums and discover that the website does not contain the latest converters. That doesn't make much sense.

But anyway I download the sql file and the latest php script from the two different threads they're in. (Not sure why it's split up either.)

I do a clean installed of SMF version 1.1.4 and set it up for UTF-8. The empty forum is working just fine so I upload the latest script and sql file and attempt the conversion again.

This time I receive the error:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_VARIABLE in /home/<<myfolder_name>>/public_html/forums/convert.php on line 1

What should I do?

No. I'm not on a free host. I'm on lunar pages.

The first script that I downloaded from the simplemachines website worked just fine. It just had the bugs in it like not importing the signatures or avatars correctly.

The only difference that I can think of is the first time it worked my database was not in UTF8 format. The SMF database was actually in latin swedish. After I realized this I reinstalled the forum with UTF8 and also downloaded the latest PHP and SQL from the forum here.

Download the file from the server and see if its getting truncated.  You get that error right when you open the convert.php or you are able to insert your config info?

Post by: bebo94 on November 15, 2007, 12:16:41 AM
I don't think it's getting truncated. But it is getting scrambled. I've uploaded the original file both with an FTP client and via command prompt and pulled it back down. Each time it's lost it's internal formatting. (see attached)

It is giving me the error when I immediately try to run the file. I don't get the dialog prompts.
Title: Re: [SMF Converter] phpBB - 2.0.19+
Post by: JayBachatero on November 15, 2007, 12:27:34 AM
WTF.  It's losing all its formatting causing everything to be in one line.  So lines with // s comments, comment the whole script out.  Try using another FTP client.  Also is this a windows server or linux?

Post by: bebo94 on November 16, 2007, 01:39:11 AM
OK. Tried a couple more FTP clients and the script uploaded OK. Cyberduck and Mac terminal FTP were the ones messing it up.

Signatures and avatars converted but smilies came through as :wink:, etc. Any way I can get them back? Do I need to install another set? I have the default SMF 1.1.4 running.

Post by: bebo94 on November 16, 2007, 02:41:12 AM
OK. I poked around the admin control panel and found out what was going on with the smileys. The converter worked great. By default however, the smileys are turned off. In order to get all of them to show up correctly I had to select both of these options in the smiley settings panel:
Enable smiley set selection by members
Enable customized smileys

Thanks Jay for all your help. I would suggest posting these php and sql files on the main smf website instead of the outdated ones that are out there now.

Thanks, again.

Hello.

I would like start first greeting the whole comunity. And, ask if anyone can help me.

A few posts before, I asked for some help. And, I got the main issue sorted out, but, the second issue still not solved.

My problem is, that my host doesn't aloud to have the same username for the DB's in the same server for security reasons.
So, I can't give access from one DB to the other so it can conver the forums.
I would like to know, and if someone would help me to do it, if there is a way to specify on the converter the logging for the other DB? Seems to me that is the only way posible that it can be done, in order for the converter to work.

Thanks in advance.

Open the .sql file and find

    ALTER TABLE {$to_prefix}smileys
    ORDER BY LENGTH(code) DESC;
and change to:
Code: [Select]
    ALTER TABLE {$to_prefix}smileys
    ORDER BY code DESC;

This is a mysql bug, we just have to deal with it sadly until they fix it.

download te .sql file from this topic and the convert.php.  Then upload them to your SMF dir and point your browser to convert.php.

in first place, thanx.

i did what u said

but this error is occuring

Quote
Sorry, 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 'wowbra_smf2'@'localhost' for table 'phpbb_users'

My phpbb forum is on: http://wow-bra.com/azerothbr

and my smf is on: http://wow-bra.com/azerothbrasil

what can be going wrong?

Lunermayer :

To access a database, you need to have administrative rights on it. In order to convert phpBB to SMF, both the database must hv common user which can access both data so that convertor can read from phpBB database and write to SMF database.

So
Create a User who can access both database and use its password while it ask for password.

Greetings people.

Well, please forgive my question, a little different from the main discussion, but i need one answer :)

The situation:

1) I have a PHPBB2 forum in one server.
2) I've downloaded the backup SQL file from PHPBB2.
3) I want all my archives to be in my new SMF forum in other server.
4) As i do not found any "upload arquive" button in SMF forum, can i upload the SQL file in any place through my server installed smf? Where do i have to place this SQL file, if i can do it?

Sorry for the questions, but if anyone can help me, it will be much appreciated ^^

There is no way to upload an archive from within SMF.

To complete the conversion you need a phpbb database setup and working.
Then a conf.php for the conversion script to find and use to convert the Database to SMF

Thanks for these updated covert files!

I was converting from PHPBB 2.0.22 that had some mods (even some that included database changes) and had no real problems.

I did have to CHOMOD my ../Smileys/default directory to 777 to get this to work as I was receiving a lot of 'unable to access' errors. My PHPBB had a bunch of extra smileys in it.  Afterward doing this, the convert went without errors, except for a couple of 'unable to copy' because some files such as 'wink.gif' already existed so it wouldn't allow them to be over written.

If these new convert files were on the top level smf phpbb converter download page, I probably wouldn't have even had to come to this board to look for help. So why aren't the fixed files located at http://www.simplemachines.org/download/?converters ??

Thanks again!

[ERROR]

Which software are you using?
The converter did not find any conversion data files. Please check to see if the one you want is available for download at www.simplemachines.org. If it isn't, we may be able to write one for you - just ask us!
After you download it, simply upload it into the same folder as this convert.php file. If you're having any other problems with this converter, don't hesitate to look for help on our forum.

Help?

Yes that message was for you.  The first error is because some users have avatars that are missing so you get that error.  The second error you shouldn't be getting if you are using the updated .sql file and the updated convert.php file.

Ok Jay thanks

Actually i don't really care for the avatar.  User will be asked to update them later in the process.

About the updated converter I'm 98% sure that I'm using the good one . I took it directly from smf converter section 6 days ago.

NOw the tricky part is about the SQL update where can I check that.? I'm using cpanel, PhpmyAdmin 2.11.0 and MySQL 4.1.22 with utf8 setting but have no idea where to find update or make changes  if this is not actual. And like most user here, I'm Really not that familiar with all the data base stuff.

The error message talk about double topics. Anyway to get  rid of them?

Thanks

Dan ;)

Best bet is to use these two files. ;)

HI Jay thanks again for your help but still not working.

I have uploaded the file you told me about from your last answer convert.php and .sql in the rooth directory of the forum, but still only have partial tranfer of the file with the same message and bug at the exact same line:

Caused the error:

Duplicate entry '10629-25' for key 3

So what ever I do I'm still on square one... or two. Got a partial transfer but no messages transfer at all.
I even tried the solution from another post telling to changes permission of setting.php to 777 change my sql id-moved-topics to ''null'' instead of ''no null'' still nothing. Looks like I,m not the only one with that specific problem.

I really don't want to get phpbb3.0 and need to fix that smf asap. Data base is not that big only 75000 messages with 1850 members. Server seams to allow me all the time I need event if data base is 220 meg.

What should be the next step?

BEst Regard

Dan

To all of those who will post here. I must say that I had a lot of problem with the transfer of my files. but Jay is a real GENIOUS. HE was able to fix the problem no time. My mistake was simply because I had used the wrong file.

So again thanks JAY THE MAN!!!

What version of phpBB are you running?
Title: Re: [SMF Converter] phpBB - 2.0.19+
Post by: darky2106 on January 11, 2008, 07:52:15 PM
PHPBB:2.0.22
SMF:1.1.2

Those are the versions of both installed forums.. i have many installations of different versions if its needed...
Title: Re: [SMF Converter] phpBB - 2.0.19+
Post by: JayBachatero on January 11, 2008, 08:05:27 PM
Ok it should work.  You need to upgrade to 1.1.4 BTW.  Give the converter a shot again.  I remember seeing something similar so I'll look into it more and see what's up.  Do a search on this topic.
Title: Re: [SMF Converter] phpBB - 2.0.19+
Post by: darky2106 on January 12, 2008, 05:21:05 AM
I found out on another topic why it happens like that:
Quote
EDIT ---
I was able to fix this error and a few other ones that had poped up. It seams that there is a bug in mysql 5.X
and so sence i had access to the my.ini file i changed this line
sql-mode="STRICT_TRANS_TABLES,NO_AUTO_CREATE_USER,NO_ENGINE_SUBSTITUTION"
to this line
sql-mode="NO_AUTO_CREATE_USER,NO_ENGINE_SUBSTITUTION"
and it fixed all error and inserted every thing just fine.

But i have problem whit smileys now.. i saw an sql script in this topic i will search it again..

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

keeps on pointing me back to the same topic :(

i already downloaded the .sql file, tried using the default convert.php provided in the download converter page provided of the site. but i cannot download or get a copy of that converter that mod has posted.

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 (http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=140741.0) with the .sql file attached in this topic.

http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=140741.0 <-- convert.php

are you referring to another version of convert.php or the .sql on this one? coz i was able to download the .sql but when i click on the convert.php i just keeps on jumping back to this thread.

After having loads of problems with the converter failing to convert my phpbb posts (see http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=216789.0 ), I eventually found a new version of the converter sql file and tried that....

It got past the previous problems, but it now generates a new error:

Converting...

Converting polls... Successful.
Converting poll options... Successful.
Converting poll votes... Successful.

Can anypne help with that one please?

I've tried every version I could find Jay - I eventually got it to work by removing the stuff for converting the avatar files/directory from the converters sql file - Then it completed without problems. The avatars aren't a big deal for me, as long as I have the userbase and the messages etc transferred across....

You need to edit the php.ini file and set the correct session.save_path.  It's towards the end of the file.

Hi, im very new here. I've read through about 1/3 of this topic (quite a few pages of helpful info).

I have had phpBB 2.x.xx installed and running since 2006. Im wanting to convert over to SMF now. I have SMF installed and working in a separate folder from the phpBB installation, but before I go any further I had a few questions so that I know I understand this correctly.

For example, SMF can be in one folder and phpBB can be in a different folder, but both have to use the same host name for the database, correct?

If I am using the same database for both message boards, how do I clear out the old phpBB board from the database once everything is converted to SMF? I ask this because that database with the phpBB on it is a mess from previous mods and a bad install of Coppermine Photo Gallery.

Is there anyway I can run SMF on a new database and still convert the phpBB over?

If any of this doesn't make any sense, it's probably because im pretty lost at this point when it comes to actually messing with the database. Thanks in advance for any help.

REiT - Did you install the attachments mod before?

For example, SMF can be in one folder and phpBB can be in a different folder, but both have to use the same host name for the database, correct?
Correct.  They don't have to be in the same database but the SMF database user MUST have access to the phpBB database.  If you can't have 1 user in 2 databases then just install SMF in the same database as phpBB.

You can just remove the tables with the phpbb_ prefix.

As stated above.  As long as SMF has access to both databases it should be able to convert.

If you need help converting take a look at.

I thought maybe it was the Coppermine Photo Gallery causing the error, so I dropped all of it's tables and still get the error. Hitting try again doesnt help.

Again, thanks in advance for helping out. I'm pretty sure this is just something simple.

Edit: Ok, I tried repairing and optimizing and that didnt work either.

What causes the converter to allow you to put ANYTHING in for the two forum paths and SMF password and then immediately says conversion successful? Doesn't matter what I put in those fields, always says it works and nothing ever transfers over.

That error means there is 2 topics with the same id.
The only way to fix this is to go into your phpbb database. Find the topics that have the id of "2108".
Then decide which one it is you want to remove :|

Using the files suggested should fix that since the errors are ignored.  Make sure that you overwrite the files and not resume or anything like that.  If you want to make sure delete the files and reupload it again.

I made an almost successful test-conversion, but got the same "sign error", I mean, every signature now have the first character deleted, breaking images and such.

Is there a correction? I'm even willing to try out everything again if it's the case. Thanks!

(I see now the polls also broke, the topics with open polls disappeared)

Followed the above instructions. There wasn't 2 topics with the same ID. They all went in order. I deleted the only one that it said there was a duplicate of, then tried again. I got this error.

Caused the error:

Duplicate entry '2110' for key 1

Which is the next in line after 2109. If I delete 2110, im betting it will just give me an erorr for 2111.

Edit: It looks like it had a problem during converting of the avatar galleries images. My phpBB2 didnt have any gallery images. Could this be the reason for the error? I went to the SMF board and it looks like everything converted over and is in place. So, I went to Maintanence and checked it for errors. It found a few errors and fixed them. Everything seems to be working there now.

Now I used the right file. =) Well, the first character problem went out and also the install was fully "sucessful" (or so it said).

Now I got some bbcode "broke". I mean, it's not recognizing tags such as [flash] or [align]. Is there a way to fix?

And still with poll issues (maybe I should have played with smf settings before converting? No clue).

It's nothing serious, really. But I'd like to try a fixing.  ;)

Anyways, I'm very grateful for the attention I'm receiving here.

r0ckstarr you are still using an outdate convert.php.  there is a link to the updated one in the first post of the topic.

tanko - what is the problem with polls that you are having?  Also what does the align tag look like in phpBB?.  That can be changed and made to work with SMF.
Title: Re: [SMF Converter] phpBB - 2.0.19+

Title: Re: [SMF Converter] phpBB - 2.0.19+
Post by: tanko on April 06, 2008, 02:10:40 PM
The problem is: topics with open polls won't display at all (nor pool, nor topic, nor thread). Closed polls will display the results correctly.

The tag looks like [align=center]stuff ppl want to align[/align]. The "align" value may be the common ones (left, right, justify).

I don't know of ALL the mods and stuff the phpbb board may have because I'm not the original installer (it was installed by someone and modified a couple of times by another person) and how this may affect the conversion.

I'm also new working with both foruns as administrator but the modular SMF seems a far better option since I'm afraid of hacking phpbb2 all the time and the staff is also interested in an easier management. So, sorry if I'm not being clear about my problems.

Thanks again!

Conversion Complete. 

All errors were completely my fault. I'm not used to being on a board with attatchments at the bottom of the posts. My old phpBB2 board didnt have that, so I didnt know to look for the proper converter there. I apologize for any headache I may have caused.

It was left the original way, same way it was before. No errors but no changes.

PS: I also always get the old issue of "phpbb" before rank names. I'm sure I used the right files.

PS2: Is there, by chance, anything I can do to make SMF ranks use Phpbb2 rank images besides manually adding? Just wondering. Nothing big.

Did the conversion complete though?  I need to look into that undefined index error.  It shouldn't stop the conversion though.

yes, the conversion is complete, it hasnt been stopped.

btw, just saw, my announcements haven't been converted
Annoucements as in global announcements?

1. Ok I'll look into it and see what's up.
2. You need to remove it from the admin panel.  Or edit the .sql file to remove it.
3. Would need to add some support for that in the converter.  ATM it's not supported.

OK, I've done everything up to installing smf and uploading the correct files to the correct location. When I go to run the convert.php I need the correct Paths and Password. I don't have the first clue as to where to find the correct path for my current phpbb2 path. Any explicit instructions on how to find this? Also, I notice on the smf path that there is no www does this hold true for my current phpbb2 path?

Title: Re: [SMF Converter] phpBB - 2.0.19+
Post by: -Live- on April 24, 2008, 03:32:18 PM
OK, I've found the correct path to both but now receive this once I run the convert.php

Quote
Notice: Undefined variable: dbname in /home/content/a/n/d/REMOVED/html/cof.142oda.net/smf/convert.php(343) : eval()'d code on line 1

Sorry, 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: Incorrect database name ''


However, I used the correct database name and password when I installed smf as it is the same database for the Nuke Evolution current site.

What browser where you using?

If you are sure you entered the values then those shouldn't be empty unless your browser isn't sending them correctly to the script
Title: Re: [SMF Converter] phpBB - 2.0.19+
Post by: -Live- on April 25, 2008, 03:14:53 AM
Using Firefox. Also the database name and password had to be right otherwise smf wouldn't have installed right?
Title: Re: [SMF Converter] phpBB - 2.0.19+
Post by: SleePy on April 25, 2008, 12:41:15 PM
and you where using the .sql and convert script attached to the first post in this topic?
Title: Re: [SMF Converter] phpBB - 2.0.19+
Post by: -Live- on April 25, 2008, 01:02:42 PM
Yep, I created a sub domain cof.142oda.net and then installed mkportal and smf. So I go from my root of my web server to the root of sub domain which contains the smf folder and then uploaded these two files phpbb2_to_smf.sql and convert.php there. I ran that by going to http://cof.142oda.net/smf/convert.php and setup one page then it moved on to step one. This is where I hang on the paths or database access.

I'm with GoDaddy and have only the one mysql database which is installed for both the Nuke Evo and the SMF now. I did this since I can't create multiple users for one database and that is the way I've read has to be done in this case.

Post by: -Live- on April 25, 2008, 03:13:59 PM
OK, if I use the path  /home/content/a/n/d/REMOVED/html/modules/Forums then I get the above error for the phpbb2 path. If I change the path to /home/content/a/n/d/REMOVED/html/ then I get this error instead

The error MySQL gave was: Table '142ODA.users' doesn't exist

So in conclusion I believe I don't have the correct path to where this converter needs to point. There are dozens of config.php throughout Evo so if anyone can post up the path from the root for a default Evo path that would be awesome.

Where is you phpbb installed? It basically wants the path to that folder.
Title: Re: [SMF Converter] phpBB - 2.0.19+
Post by: -Live- on April 26, 2008, 03:05:07 AM
I haven't the foggiest. I installed Nuke Evo much the same way as MKPortal with SMF. Nuke Evo runs Nuke PHP with Nuke Sentinel I take it and then uses phpbb2 for the forums. MKPortal is my index site for  the new one and SMF runs the forum side. Now when I look for where SMF is installed it is easy. However, when I look through the Evo install I see folders which say forums or forum inside almost every folder there including the root. I've tried dozens of the combinations to no avail.
Title: Re: [SMF Converter] phpBB - 2.0.19+
Post by: SleePy on April 26, 2008, 12:52:06 PM
If Nuke Evo is like phpnuke, then I believe its in the modules folder in another folder called phpbb or forum.
Title: Re: [SMF Converter] phpBB - 2.0.19+
Post by: -Live- on April 26, 2008, 11:19:59 PM
Evidently some information that I've read numerous times throughout the posts here were incorrect. Nuke Evo does use phpbb or phpbb2 but all the prefixes are nuke_ therefore the phpbb to smf will not work. A friend of mine actually found an evo to smf converter, I think it may have been on this site but not sure, and it worked pretty darn well. I of course had these similar issues with smilies, attachments, and links pointing from within the old site broken but I expected that and have spent the time to fix it. Also, it doubled all the User Groups but that was simply deleting them. One other strange thing that happened was that it ported over all registered members into the administrator group but again a pretty easy fix as I just had to delete those who weren't admins. All in all I would still give the conversion process an A since it saved the most important part and that was the information and the accounts. Thanks SleePy anyhow for the help and thanks for SMF since I love it already.

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)

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.

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, http://www.lunarforums.com/lunarpages_how_tos/quickly_convert_phpbb_to_smf_after_installing_smf-t25926.0.html

...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

Post by: SleePy on May 17, 2008, 09:45:10 PM
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
Title: Re: [SMF Converter] phpBB - 2.0.19+
Post by: ElfQrin on May 18, 2008, 01:26:13 PM
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 ishttp://fogforums.lumak.net/index.php?sid=ad95ea946331784511b5ca533291b3d1&Itemid=35 (http://fogforums.lumak.net/index.php?sid=ad95ea946331784511b5ca533291b3d1&Itemid=35) but it was a free installable forum and don't have FTP acces to it, our new forum at Fog-gaming.com/forum  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

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.

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?
Title: Re: [SMF Converter] phpBB - 2.0.19+

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

Convert selected areas ONLY: Ranks...

Members...
Additional member groups...
Categories...

Topics...
Posts (this may take some time)...
Polls...

It completes sucessfully, but does not convert the attachments.

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.

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.
Title: Re: [SMF Converter] phpBB - 2.0.19+
Post by: Incognitus on June 01, 2008, 07:03:24 AM
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.

ThorstenE,

If you manually edit those values they show up in the post that you edited them. I just can't figure how where its keeping track of the user who edited it last..
SMF wont show a modified string if there is no user attached to it.

The conversion-file takes the data correct to smf_messages, but does not display it because modifiedName column is empty. The primary problem is, that phpbb does not store the user who has modified the message.

Code: [Select]
IF (p.post_edit_time >0, SUBSTRING(IF(IFNULL(p.post_username, '') = '', u.username, p.post_username), 1, 255), '') AS modifiedName, should fix it. This is exactly what phpbb does..

the phpbb2_to_smf.sql is part of the Conversion: Convert.php is the script used in Browser, it calls a myforum_to_smf.sql for conversion (phpbb_to_smf.sql for you). Replace the existing file with the one attached in my post above. this is a fixed version and should show the "edit by" information after conversion.

Is there a reason why these udates haven't been published to CVS, so they appear on the download page? It just seems silly for the most recent update (over 5 months old!) not to be available publicly. Anywhere.

Further, are you aware that the downloads here require a forum membership, which means they're nearly impossible to obtain (no mention of a membership requirement to download attachments appears ANYWHERE that I could find).

You're not going to get many large converts if the only publicly visible download breaks every single signature in their forums, especially if it looks like you're not even aware that no other downloads are available!

In the meantime, you should at least edit the original post to indicate that the attached file will only be visible if they have an account on the forum. I must have wasted half an hour looking around for a link somewhere - that was obviously placed once I had an account and was logged in.

I used the one I had in the 1.1 repo... Which soon as the script is fixed would be the one on the converters downloads page :)

Hi everyone.
I have another question, when I convert my phpbb2 the message that was signs like "announcement" begane like normal topics.
Is possible fix it?
Thanks. :)

SMF doesn't have announcement or global topics by default. But you can sticky them or use a global announcements mod.

Ok, thanks for the reply.
Sorry for another question, if I install mod about global announcement and then I convert, the announcement topic became announcement topic or I have to fix by handle?

Post by: SleePy on July 07, 2008, 02:23:53 PM
You would have to do it by hand.
The conversion doesn't support 3rd party mods.

will this convert to smf 2?

The 2.0 converters are not yet ready.
You can convert to 1.1 and then do the full upgrade package to 2.0 though :)

allright. is it in the works? i'm thinking it might be worth waiting instead of going through the trouble...

It is in the works, I don't know when I will be releasing them.

Right now I am in the process of making them work with multiple databases. This is a little tricky as some f the queries are very mysql specific ones.
Title: Re: [SMF Converter] phpBB - 2.0.19+
Post by: JeffG1 on July 19, 2008, 02:33:52 PM
So which is the correct sql file to use? Either of the two in the OP at 21.95 and 21.93KB, or the one tucked away in reply #501 at 22.07KB?

I think I'd be less confused if there was just one file (the latest) in the whole thread, attached to the OP.  ;)
Title: Re: [SMF Converter] phpBB - 2.0.19+
Post by: SleePy on July 19, 2008, 08:34:25 PM
The one at the start of the thread should work fine.
The one later on might of been a change to see if something fixed an issue that a user might of had.

I will update the post with the latest phpbb2 converter file I have in the svn repo :)

Post by: ThorstenE on July 25, 2008, 02:37:28 PM
you can change the user's group in PHPMyAdmin - SQL-Window:
Code: [Select]
UPDATE smf_members set ID_GROUP=1 WHERE memberName='User'
replace User to the real user's Name

the collation will be a problem, you should convert again with the same collation of your old phpBB.

I think I failed to understand the issue?

Are you wanting to import their ip addresses? These are imported as gained from their profile.

No I can't see it in the profile. :(

Does it show under track IP?

Otherwise the only other place the ip is shown is when viewing a topic for those users.

Hi All,
I've browsed this topic to see if there is a solution for my question:
Al converter for migrating from PHPbb2.0.20 to SMF (latest)
There are many conversion scripts and even so many problems and difficulties.
My question is, which script or procedure is the best?

Sorry if I insist.
But I need the ip of my members

I think is this the code can help to help me :)
Code: [Select]
ALTER TABLE phpbb_users ADD user_registered_ip VARCHAR(8),ADD user_registered_hostname VARCHAR(255 );ALTER TABLE phpbb_sessions ADD session_user_agent VARCHAR( 255 ) NOT NULL AFTER session_ip;CREATE TABLE phpbb_logins (login_id mediumint(8) unsigned NOT NULL auto_increment,login_userid mediumint(8) NOT NULL default '0',login_ip varchar(8) NOT NULL default '0',login_user_agent varchar(255) NOT NULL default 'n/a',login_time int(11) NOT NULL default '0',PRIMARY KEY (login_id)Whit this I can see what ip they use for register.

I need to import it, please...

allymcbeal,
can you convert again or is your SMF allready running (then conversion is not possible without loosing all new data)?

if you can convert again you only need to edit the phpbb2_to_smf.sql

find
Code: [Select]
'' AS memberIPreplace with
Code: [Select]
u.user_registered_ip AS memberIP,

find
Code: [Select]
'' AS memberIP2replace with
Code: [Select]
u.user_registered_ip AS memberIP2

Hi ThorstenE,  I can because I'm watching to see very well how it works, so I'm doing some test first, so thank you for your help.  :)

I did what you say me, I have write only one "," after "u.user_registered_ip AS memberIP," because it give me an error, and I write a "," after "u.user_registered_ip AS memberIP2," like you say me (but first there isn't).
But it gives me alredy an error.

ups, sorry..my mistake, copy&paste is sometimes not a good solution ;)

fixed it above.

it must be  u.user_registered_ip AS memberIP2 (without the , at the end, because it's the last column converted)

But I can see a ip like this "4f0b61d3" if  I remember well, in phpmyadmin I see the ip so and then in the forum I see they right.
Is a problem fix it?

untested, but the following should fix it:

find (in phpbb_to_smf.sql)

Code: [Select]
// Got the board timezone?add before
Code: [Select]
if (!empty($row['memberIP'])) {
$ipa= hexdec(substr($row['memberIP'],0,2));
$ipb= hexdec(substr($row['memberIP'],2,2));
$ipc= hexdec(substr($row['memberIP'],4,2));
$ipd= hexdec(substr($row['memberIP'],6,2));

Hi, again me.
I have a mod in my forum, it gives me the name of users vote for a poll.

Can you help me to add to my new forum?

I have created this table

ALTER TABLE phpbb_vote_voters ADD vote_cast TINYINT( 4 ) UNSIGNED DEFAULT '0' NOT NULL;


and add this code
-around line 494-
# NOTE: the complete line to find is:
#            $sql = "INSERT INTO " . VOTE_USERS_TABLE . " (vote_id, vote_user_id, vote_user_ip)
#               VALUES ($vote_id, " . $userdata['user_id'] . ", '$user_ip')";
#
            $sql = "INSERT INTO " . VOTE_USERS_TABLE
               VALUES

#
#-----[ IN-LINE FIND ]------------------------------------
#
vote_user_ip

#
#-----[ IN-LINE AFTER, ADD ]------------------------------
#
, vote_cast

#
#-----[ IN-LINE FIND ]------------------------------------
#
'$user_ip'

#
#-----[ IN-LINE AFTER, ADD ]------------------------------
#
, $vote_option_id

#
# NOTE: Many users make a mistake when performing the above edit.  After the above instructions are performed
#      the code should look like this:
#
#            $sql = "INSERT INTO " . VOTE_USERS_TABLE . " (vote_id, vote_user_id, vote_user_ip, vote_cast)
#               VALUES ($vote_id, " . $userdata['user_id'] . ", '$user_ip', $vote_option_id)";



Can you help me please?
I add also some php file:

copy admin_voting.php to /phpbb_root/admin/admin_voting.php
copy admin_voting_body.tpl to /phpbb_root/templates/subSilver/admin/admin_voting_body.tpl
copy lang_admin_voting.php to /phpbb_root/language/lang_english/lang_admin_voting.php
copy admin_voting_icon.gif to /phpbb_root/templates/subSilver/images/admin_voting_icon.gif

Post by: allymcbeal on August 13, 2008, 03:33:35 PM
I don't know how is karma, because in my old forum I don't have it.
This hack register the name of user who vote in a poll, not what they have vote, but only the users name.
Is because some user register itself twice only for vote.

I believe it's the one from here..... I am not positive to be honest.

Can you provide me the proper link since I believe i have tried the proper one.

Thanks in advance...this issue is driving me crazy...it actually imported posts up to 2007 but nothing after  :-X



It is the one from here...i downloaded it and replaced the other on my server...still the same error

It seems to have duplicate issues
Title: Re: [SMF Converter] phpBB - 2.0.19+
Post by: ThorstenE on August 19, 2008, 12:24:49 PM
this one should work:
http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=142124.0;attach=61756
the posts are converted with $ignore = true; as argument.. this means all INSERTS have the parameter IGNORE and Duplicates will be skipped without warning..

if the trouble continues you can edit the phpbb2_to_smf.sql with a texteditor and change:
Code: [Select]
---* {$to_prefix}messages 200to
Code: [Select]
---* {$to_prefix}messages 100This will make the converter only do 100 posts at time. This should hopefully help and let you get through the posts conversion.

Post by: Squash on August 19, 2008, 12:44:54 PM

I downloaded the right one possibly now.....it's slowly going thru all of them. Before that it would start and error right away. I'm hoping this is a good sign. 8)

I'm guessing this can take awhile? I had over 150,000 posts or so on the forum. This may be awhile, and thanks for the help....I'm a technical spazz

Title: Re: [SMF Converter] phpBB - 2.0.19+
Post by: SleePy on August 19, 2008, 03:44:17 PM
You could either edit your my.cnf (you need root server access) to increase that variable and restart mysql.

Or for the section you are converting currently, you could lower the number of posts,topics,members,what ever it is doing to a smaller chunk of data.
This will make conversion take a little bit longer, but should hopefully prevent this.

I have seen this happen from time to time with posts or pms that are really big.
Title: Re: [SMF Converter] phpBB - 2.0.19+
Post by: Squash on August 20, 2008, 12:21:41 AM
Okay so I reduced it to 100 and I still error about 142000 posts in.

I get this message again
"Caused the error:
Got a packet bigger than 'max_allowed_packet' bytes"

I'm guessing but could be wrong on this. I have some single posts that are news letters type posts, that my site does weekly. They are huge at times and I could be wrong but is there some sort of word limit setting? It seems to stall on these long long posts each time.

Any help would be great. Is there something I can edit again?
Title: Re: [SMF Converter] phpBB - 2.0.19+
Post by: ThorstenE on August 20, 2008, 01:27:25 AM
try 50 messages at the same time.. (this will make the conversion procecc really slow)
Code: [Select]
---* {$to_prefix}messages 50another option would be to install a local webserver (XAMPP for example (http://www.apachefriends.org/de/xampp.html) and do it local) or to contact your host and ask him, if he can (temporary) increase the 'max_allowed_packet' parameter from MySQL.
Title: Re: [SMF Converter] phpBB - 2.0.19+
Post by: Squash on August 20, 2008, 01:59:12 AM
I'll give 50 a try.....I'll leave it running overnight if need be.

It has stalled twice on the same spot and same error...so if 50 doesn't work I'll contact my host.

Thanks

Title: Re: [SMF Converter] phpBB - 2.0.19+
Post by: SleePy on August 20, 2008, 04:33:02 PM
It is most likely a message that is really really big. MySQL isn't liking the size of the message.

If you look at your url. You will see a substep=####
That is the id of the last message it worked on before it did the timeout protection.
You can use that and work your way up from there to figure out which message is causing this.

I'm looking to convert from a phpBB board ver. 2.0.22 with the following mods.
Topic Calendar - Categories Hierarchy by Ptirhiik 2.2.2
Categories hierarchy by Ptirhiik 2.1.1 RC5
As well as some minor mods, an advanced user search, and extented templates.

Would the converter on page 1 be a good place to start, or perhaps some of the other various links i've seen in this thread?

Also are there any recommended mods i should install to SMF before attempting to convert a php board with the mods i have on it?

Thanks for any info guys!!

Post by: void4ever on September 03, 2008, 03:16:41 PM
So aside from calendar events not being linked to threads, subfolders, and ranks, everything looks pretty good. I honestly didn't expect the calendar thing, nor the subfolders since those were plugins to phpbb. And instead of being a subfolder they are just all thrown into the main page. I can edit that no problem.

The ranks installed themselves over membergroups which i assume is what SMF uses, though in phpbb ranks weren't used for permissions of any type, just something fun to put under peoples names. It looks like the same can be done here as well just not setting any permissions.

It's unfortunate that every single rank came through with a phpbb in front of it, here's an example:
phpBB Bacon of Light
phpBB Barbaric Warlord
phpBB Beast Knight
phpBB Beauty Queen

I'm willing to bet it has something to do with the plugins installed on phpbb though. Not a huge deal to manually edit, just a lot of them to do :P

I want to thank everyone whos worked on this converter, excellent job!

Title: Re: [SMF Converter] phpBB - 2.0.19+
Post by: SleePy on September 03, 2008, 03:27:23 PM
The converter prefixes all membergroups with phpBB, as to not get groups confused for common groups such as Admins and moderators.
Title: Re: [SMF Converter] phpBB - 2.0.19+
Post by: void4ever on September 03, 2008, 03:40:02 PM
Ahhh i understand then.

One more question if you don't mind. I'm trying to wrap my head around permissions vs (what i call) ranks, or member groups i guess.

Like i said on my phpbb boards we had fun little messages (ranks) the admins could set below someones name in a post (like the ones above). They had no effect on board permissions however.

Am i able to do the same thing with the member groups in SMF, and just use the permission section for board settings? Or am i looking for some type of plugin?

Post by: SleePy on September 03, 2008, 07:32:38 PM
Well you can set in each persons profile a Custom Title. You could also set a membergroup and just have it do nothing (clear everything on permissions so it isn't granting nor denying any permission).

In SMF 2.0 you can do inherted permissions, so things like that would be easier and let it inherit permissions from another group.
Title: Re: [SMF Converter] phpBB - 2.0.19+
Post by: void4ever on September 03, 2008, 07:42:19 PM
Hmmmm i assume the custom title's are editable by the user though? So i'll have to stick with creating groups without permissions i think.

I might look into 2.0, i read on the main page that it was early beta though and not really ready for live use, though maybe i'll go skim the major thread and see what kinda bugs are present.

I am trying to convert my PHPBB 2.0.21 and so far so good, but when I put in the two path names of the smf and phpbb I get an error that says: This converter was unable to find SMF in the path you specified.

This is the location: http://bandittransamclub.com/smf (http://bandittransamclub.com/smf)

The smf is there, so I don't see what I'm doing wrong.  If I give the wrong password to the smf, will I get a different error message?
Title: Re: [SMF Converter] phpBB - 2.0.19+
Post by: ThorstenE on December 01, 2008, 12:20:32 PM
the path for SMF ends with .../smf
the path for phpBB ends with .../forum

... should be automatically detected by convert.php

Post by: GreySkull-1 on December 01, 2008, 12:38:28 PM
Referring to the converter page that ask you to enter the "Path to SMF:" and the "Path to phpBB2:"

Nothing I've entered seems to work. Although I quickly get a

"Converting...
Successful.
Recalculating forum statistics... Successful."

nothing has changed.

Any ideas on the correct path?

I've tried umpteen hundred combinations and none work.

some examples:

/hermes/bosweb/web166/b1663/d5.XXXXXXX/public_html/smf

/d5.XXXXXXX/public_html/smf

/home/XXXXXXX/public_html/smf

/home/users/web/b1663/d5.XXXXXXX/public_html/smf

d5.XXXXXXX/public_html/smf

I've tried multiple combinations in both the SMF and phpBB boxes.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

I'm trying to convert phpBB 2.0.23 to SMF 1.1.7 and ran the converter as directed (both specified files are in the SMF directory). The first time I ran the converter, it showed a very long list of error messages, but at the end it said that I had successfully transfered all my files and offered a link to my new forum. This all happened almost instantly... no waiting. When I went to the forum, it was unchanged and had only one user (me).

I tried once more to run the converter, and it said I had the wrong password and I should check some file. I did that and saw that special characters had been stripped off the password. ??? So I entered the new password and it ran again, giving me another long list of errors, but said the process was successful again! So I again went to look and now it says that there is a connection error and I should try again later as the server could be busy. SMF could not connect to the database! Is this because it is trying to access the database with an incorrect password (stripped of the special characters)? 

What do I do now?

This may be the reason. Are both forums installed in the same database? (same MySQL user and password)?

Both databases use the same password and user name, are on the same server, but are not a combined database. I copied and pasted the complete report produced by the conversion script into a wordpad document (text file). I can send that to you if it would help.
And thanks so very much for your quick reply... I didn't expect one until tomorrow! This is great. I hope I can get this problem solved before the weekend is over.

I sent you a PM, but for the benefit of others, I will mention here that there are no quotes ( single or double) in the password.
Speaking of passwords: Is it not dangerous to have an un-encrypted password stored in a file on the server? Especially when there is a utility in SMF that allows one to easily change all files to permission 777?

Can you PM me a link to both forums and your MySQL password? I would like to try this myself.

Post by: Tarzan1 on January 27, 2009, 03:24:00 AM
Thanks to TE, who pointed me in the right direction, I discovered that the username and password that I thought was being used for phpBB was in fact not the correct ones. The phpBB database has several 'users' and I incorrectly assumed the MAIN user was the one that phpBB would be using. This was NOT the case, so of course the conversion failed!
LESSON TO BE LEARNED: Don't assume. CHECK to be sure. Find out where to look for your information in your particular forum software. (It will be in a settings or configuration file).

Now I have created a new problem where I get a duplicate key error. When that gets resolved, I will post my discoveries for others to learn from my mistakes.
 :-[
I wonder if the problem (linked to) in the post above (who got similar error messages to mine) might be a similar situation?
Title: Re: [SMF Converter] phpBB - 2.0.19+
Post by: Tarzan1 on January 27, 2009, 04:11:28 AM
It seems the duplicate key entry was from clicking on the CONTINUE button.
Even though the instructions on the page say to click the button, TE told me NOT TO (THAT IT WOULD CONTINUE ON ITS OWN IN A FEW SECONDS). It did, and the transfer seems to have taken place. Woo hoo! I think I have myself a new forum!

Many thanks to TE.

attachments isn't a default phpBB2 feature, so our converter doesn't convert attachments.
this should help you:

http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=258735.msg1686035#msg1686035
this is an attachments only converter and can be used with convert.php.
delete your old phpbb2_to_smf.sql and upload this file and convert.php.

then start the conversion.

both forums use diffrerent table collations ins MySQL
Please try this:
Re-Install SMF and enable the checkbox for UTF-8 during install. then in convert.php you should also use "UTF-8" as the character set. Convert.php is our general converter file, the phpbb2_to_smf.sql contains all commands for a phpbb2 conversion and is used from convert.php.

Thanks for reply. I down loaded both category & board ID fixers.

Do these two php's run from the SMF directory?

This is a two way conversion. First from Rapidforum to phpBB2 and then to SMF. We are currently doing another from Rapidforum tiring to fix a few things, so have to put this on hold for the moment. But would like to leave this topic open.

Question from above: Where do I run these scripts form? Guessing phpBB2 folder since they should be modifying the phpBB2 db.

Been doing a little db browsing. What do these scripts do with inner relationships?

The board_ID's refer to the Category_ID's.
The Threads & posts table refer to the board-ID.

If I run the recount_category first does it also fix the new cat ID's in the boards?

If I run the recount_board does it fix the Thread & post with new board ID's.

I have ID numbers higher than 255 in all categories & some boards.

Would the author PLEASE amend his first post to make a comment stating that one MUST BE LOGGED IN to see the attachment? I just wasted a lot of time reading through 20 pages of posts looking for the attached files in this thread before trying to download a file from a link and getting the message that one has to be logged in to see and download files!
After logging in, I could (FINALLY) see the attached file in the first thread! Before that I was going round and round following the links and only getting frustrated. I remember reading several other posts where people had a problem finding the attached files. I bet they were not logged in either. So please post it up in big coloured letters so it won't be missed. Thanks.

Well that shouldn't be happening but it appears some reason that the converter can't find its group thus returning null

Find:
Code: [Select]
u.user_posts AS posts, IF(u.user_level = 1, 1, mg.ID_GROUP) AS ID_GROUP,
Replace:
Code: [Select]
u.user_posts AS posts, IF(u.user_level = 1, 1, if(NULL, 0, mg.ID_GROUP)) AS ID_GROUP,
That should fix it hopefully.

I used something similar:

Code: [Select]
u.user_posts AS posts, IF(u.user_level = 1, 1, IFNULL(mg.ID_GROUP, 0)) AS ID_GROUP,

phpBB: 2.0.22
SMF: 1.1.8
mySQL: 5.1.32

Wouldn't it make sense to include this workaround officially in the converter?

I see the same when converting from phpbb2 to smf1.10 as well.  Good to know it's minor.  I didn't see this before in 1.1.8

I doubt it was related to SMF versions, rather to converter versions. :)
There may be a new feature added in the converter that is still in the works.

As said in your other thread (http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=340327), there is no converter for code.

I have no idea if it was ever tested, and I have doubts it would work. It is an extremely old one, and a major version, too... if you're sure you wrote the right version! :)

You can always try, make a backup of your phpbb database and give it a shot. Normally nothing wrong should happen to your database, the converter only tries to read from it, and if it results in an error, then it simply stops. (but make a backup in any case).

Post by: Oldiesmann on March 03, 2010, 03:27:03 PM
Your best bet would be to follow these instructions (http://www.phpbb.com/support/documents.php?mode=install#upgrade1.x) to upgrade to a newer version of phpBB first. You can then convert to SMF from there.

I'm experiencing the same problem as MariusMax. It seems that it has been solved for other converters, but I couldn't find out what was the fix...

I have another question, is there a way to speed up things ? I took a look in the source code and I figured out that convert['block_size'] was never defined and a value of 500 or 200 was used instead, should I define convert['block_size'] at the beginning of the file to, let's say, 2000 ? (I work in local)

Thanks in advance for your help !
Title: Re: [SMF Converter] phpBB - 2.0.19+
Post by: ThorstenE on April 24, 2010, 03:09:19 AM
This error isn't related to the block size, the error is related to an empty value (id_member_updated).. the SMF 2 insert function doesn't accept empty values for database fields.

A possible solution: convert your phpBB3 to SMF 1.1.x, then ugrade your board to SMF 2.0 RC3.

That's an odd error... What version of phpbb2/php_nuke do you have? If it's very outdated, by any chance, would it be possible to update it? Or, on the contrary is it new?

Alternatively, could you please login in phpMyAdmin, select your phpbb2 database (z32), and the table nuke_users, and go to the Export tab, exporting the table into a file, structure only (please see the checkboxes: only structure should be checked, data should not be checked, the rest can remain as whatever defaults you may have), and attach here that file.

Hi

I'm experiencing the same problem as MariusMax and Adrien while trying to convert my phpBB 2.0.22 to SMF2.0 RC5:

Quote
Converting...
Converting members...
Successful.
Converting additional member groups... Successful.
Converting categories... Successful.
Converting boards... Successful.
Converting topics...Wrong value type sent to the database. Integer expected. (id_member_updated)

The weird thing is that it works perfectly on my local installation of the website, with exactly the same configuration (but a much smaller database).

Any chance to fix this by hacking into the conversion script? Or is the only solution to install SMF 1.1, convert and then upgrade to 2.0?

That is the way I would do it. I don't know much about the conversion process, but I do know about upgrading SMF. Its a very easy process and would be worth the bit of extra work to get there.

Is there any way to go smf 2.0 direct or we must install smf1 and then update?
In that 2 cases ... result will be the same or not?

I am having the same issue with id_member_updated. I have been trying to figure out the originating phpBB column that I am assuming is null. I looked at the code, found where id_member_updated is being written and searched back to where the corresponding variable was being set. I copied the SQL that pulled the value in. It is below. I then ran that in phpAdmin with the thought being to find the bad data and correct. Every value returned as myid_first_msg and myid_last_msg is null. So I am skeptical that this is bad data specific to my database or the several others that have had the problem.

Code: [Select]
SELECT t.id_topic, MIN( m.id_msg ) AS myid_first_msg, t.id_first_msg, MAX( m.id_msg ) AS myid_last_msg, t.id_last_msg, COUNT( m.id_msg ) -1 AS my_num_replies, t.num_replies

My concern about doing that was your last post still indicated you were having issues. I take it you resolved them.

I think I can fix the one topic that is giving the problem. The post indicated by the last post ID in the topic does not exist. I need to figure out the post ID of the real last post.

I finished converting with smf 1 ...

you want me to look for id of the last post?  This is general problem ... not only in my case

If you want I can find that ... just tell me where to look

I was referring to your second error:

Anyway, the conversion is done straight to SMF 2. From the query I posted earlier which came from the convert sql file, I found the topic having problems. I searched in the database in the posts table for records linked to that topic. I copied the highest post ID and put that as the last post ID in the topic record. I reran convert and it is done. There was an issue during the recalc, but I can do that through the admin.

I guess I never hit submit. This has been sitting in the quick reply window for a while.

There were problems with the data after. I got a fresh export of the DB from the old site and reran the convert. Had to change this:

   SUBSTRING(IF(IFNULL(p.post_username, '') = '', u.username, IFNULL(p.post_username, '')), 1, 255)

to:
   SUBSTRING(IF(IFNULL(p.post_username, '') = '', IFNULL(u.username, ''), IFNULL(p.post_username, '')), 1, 255)

then:
   SUBSTRING(uf.username, 1, 255) AS from_name,

to:
   SUBSTRING(ifnull(uf.username,''), 1, 255) AS from_name,

That got the convert to run and did not even get the errors during the recalc. All the boards are in the same category.

Since then, I noticed that attachments were all lost.

Error below when converting from phpBB2 to smf1.1.16:

Converting...

Recalculating forum statistics... Unsuccessful!

This query:

 

    UPDATE `pinecam`.smf_topics

    SET ID_FIRST_MSG = '',

    ID_MEMBER_STARTED = '0', ID_LAST_MSG = '',

    ID_MEMBER_UPDATED = '0', numReplies = '-1'

    WHERE ID_TOPIC = 42173

    LIMIT 1;

 

Caused the error:

 

    Duplicate entry '0-2' for key 2

I even typed in the topic id in my url and it got my no where.(Could not find this link)   /smf/index.php?topic=42173

Was told to change                    $sql = "SELECT * FROM users WHERE uid=".$uid;
with  (In forum)                         $sql = "SELECT * FROM users WHERE uid='".$uid."'";

as a last resort used the converter and sql from this forum, different error message this time:

p.poster_id AS ID_MEMBER,

WHERE pt.post_id = p.post_id

LIMIT 485000, 200;
Caused the error:

When I check the scripts it seems to be ok. Is there something I am missing?

This is first time when I'm using SMF Converter. What should I do with these files?

Can this be fixed? Not sure what to change?

Thanks.

Hi and welcome to sm.org ;)
That means that you have tables/columns in your phpBB database with different collations and MySQL can't work that out...
You need to convert everything to utf8_general_ci ;)

Quick question: If I convert all of the utf8_unicode to utf8_general, will that affect the functioning of my current phpbb board? Have backup just in case...

You have to backup, of course :P

It shouldn't cause any issues but I really hate these collations problems :P
