Hi guys.

I'm looking for someone who can tell me how to do it. I have read all tutorials about converting, but all of them are incomplete.

Hi and welcome to sm.org ;)

I have read all tutorials about converting, but all of them are incomplete.
Where i should upload convert.php file? And tell me how to convert it.
From the official documentation: http://wiki.simplemachines.org/smf/Converting (http://wiki.simplemachines.org/smf/Converting)

The convert.php file and the associated SQL file for the forum software must be uploaded to the same directory as the blank SMF install.
So just upload convert.php and the associated .sql file to your forum root (where Settings.php is), then run it via browser, eg, www.yourforum.com/convert.php

That being said: which MyBB version are you running?

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.

Try again

Did you upload both convert.php and the corresponding .sql file?

Which converter did you pick? Which MyBB version are you running?

One problem fixed, but there's new one..

Unable to find the settings for MyBulletinBoard 1.0. Please double check the path and try again

FIXED

New problem

Sorry, the database connection information used in the specified installation of SMF cannot access the installation of MyBulletinBoard 1.0. This may either mean that the installation doesn't exist, or that the Database account used does not have permissions to access it.

The error that was received from the Database was: SELECT command denied to user '5T4zeE0eyJ89u0n'@'10.20.112.9' for table 'users'

Again, please refer to the official documentation
http://wiki.simplemachines.org/smf/Converting#Database_access

Or
http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=146192.0

Anyway, the latest available converter for MyBB is for 1.6. I don't know if it works for 1.8 (there were some requests in this board but no one confirmed if it works or not...
