TRANSFERING FILES FROM ONE MACHINE TO ANOTHER MACHINE
« on: September 22, 2019, 01:49:24 PM »
Hi there, so I need help. If I have forum on phpBB and after some time, I switch to SMF, is it possible to move all users, subforums, categories, topics to SMF?
If yes, how?

Thanks

Okay, consider this as a warning. Shouting (in other words writing in all caps) or sending unsolicited PMs to random members is not a good way to seek support. Also, your topic title doesn't really match the actual question, and perhaps surprisingly, this may make it harder to get valid answers.

How you can help SMF

"Before you allow people access to your forum, especially in an administrative position, you must be aware that that person can seriously damage your forum.
 Therefore, you should only allow people that you trust, implicitly, to have such access." -Douglas
