Quote from: raibz on May 26, 2007, 11:32:43 PMI 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.

Quote from: fshagan on June 11, 2007, 11:24:13 AMThis is an excellent converter, so kudos to the author. 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. 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). 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:QuoteWarning: getimagesize() [function.getimagesize]: Read error! in /home/mysite/public_html/forums/convert.php(671) : eval()'d code on line 75Is this related to my phpBB doing some resizing depending on the original size? Any ideas?
QuoteUnable to find the settings for phpBB2. Please double check the path and try again.Before you continueThis 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.
QuoteSorry, the database connection information used in the specified installation of SMF cannot access the installation of phpBB2. This may either mean that the installation doesn't exist, or that the MySQL account used does not have permissions to access it.The error MySQL gave was: Incorrect table name 'users'
Quote from: margarett on June 20, 2007, 01:57:53 PMYou need to allow the mysql user from SMF database to access PHPBB database also...
Quote from: J B M on June 16, 2007, 02:12:14 PMI ftp the php database backup into the same folder as the converter, so I really don't know what to do from here. Can anyone help this newbie out...?
QuoteThe 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.
