Title: Migrating from IPS 4.2.6
Post by: AndalayBay on November 22, 2021, 10:17:03 PM
Would the converter for IPS 4.4 work for 4.2.6? I saw something about new tables, so I'm guessing there have been some changes.

It should work fine imo. Give it a try and let us know how it will go.

I got this error:
Converting boards...Wrong value type sent to the database. Integer expected. (id_parent)
Doing this on local host so I can manipulate the database if needed.

I think I'm going to have to restore the IPS database from backup and try again. It looks like there's some bad data. I used the admin panel in IPS to remove some forums and it didn't clean everything up.

How do I run the converter in debug mode?

The converter throws a lot of errors. I can't tell what's making it fail. I checked the data and they are fine.
