This might be a stupid question, but I just want to make sure: I have the IPB 2.0.0 (Trial), will the converter work with this?

Thanks.

Hi!

I convert successfully my forum to SMF but now I'm not able to login with my account. I use the attached sql file in the 1st post.

Thx for your answers!

Edit: I found. Just delete all cookies...  :)

Well...oldavatar...but that is after the posts are imported and it continues and finishes anyway...
When it is doing the posts the last number I see is 34600...if that is the rows?

There are like 39,000 posts though

Yes that is an approximate number of rows of posts that have been converted.  What version of IPB are you running?

This is my 7. attempt to convert my IBP 2.0.0 (trial) to SMF.

Some things are better now:
- Users can now login with same username, but have to "update" the passwords (even with the old one)

But then we have some still not working issues:
1.) The memberships are not converted correct and not one single Board is visible:
Quote
Board #2 befindet sich in der fehlenden Kategorie #0.
Board #3 befindet sich in der fehlenden Kategorie #0.
Board #4 befindet sich in der fehlenden Kategorie #0.
Board #5 befindet sich in der fehlenden Kategorie #0.
Board #6 befindet sich in der fehlenden Kategorie #0.
Board #7 befindet sich in der fehlenden Kategorie #0.
Board #11 befindet sich in der fehlenden Kategorie #0.
Board 2 hat kein existierendes übergeordnetes Board (übergeordnetes Board: 8 ).
Board 3 hat kein existierendes übergeordnetes Board (übergeordnetes Board: 8 ).
Board 4 hat kein existierendes übergeordnetes Board (übergeordnetes Board: 8 ).
Board 5 hat kein existierendes übergeordnetes Board (übergeordnetes Board: 8 ).
Board 6 hat kein existierendes übergeordnetes Board (übergeordnetes Board: 8 ).
Board 7 hat kein existierendes übergeordnetes Board (übergeordnetes Board: 8 ).
Board 11 hat kein existierendes übergeordnetes Board (übergeordnetes Board: 8 ).
Der Titel des Themas #2 ist momentan nicht im Zwischenspeicher.
Der Titel des Themas #3 ist momentan nicht im Zwischenspeicher.
....
Das zwischengespeicherte Wort 'SMF' ist mit einem nicht existierenden Thema verknüpft.
...
In the Maintenance-Menu I have executed the "finding errors and repair it". After that, all the missing Boards appears as wished. Unfortunately, the most top title was converted to "Gerettete Daten" (something like "recovered Data" and "Gerettete Themen" (something like "recovered Topics").

2.) In the single topic, there are still format-issues like:
Code: [Select]
[span style=\'color:purple\'][span style=\'font-size:14pt;line-height:100%\']wichtige Information:[/span][/span]
3.) Some smilies are converted, some others not, like:
Code: [Select]
:rolleyes:  :lol:  :unsure:  :huh:  <_<
4.) All the avatars (uploaded by users and the default-one from the board) are gone

5.) On the left side, between the numbers of topics and the "show profile"-icon should be a icon for the link "http://www.icq.com/whitepages/about_me.php?uin=0". There is no picture for that.

6.) If more then one attachment was uploaded for a single answer, they appear vertical - I would like to see them on one line (at least 3 or 4 of them) like in IBP.

Is there any hope, that you can fix this issues?

InvisibleMan78 you are using the .sql file in this topic right?

zerofill It should work with more than 34k posts.  I've converter boards much bigger than that before.  Any errors while converting?

Hello!
I have the same error with "Undefined variable: oldAvatarDir" when converting from IPB 2.0.x as other users of IPB 2.1.x and 2.2.x in other topics.

Could you help to solve this problem in script for IPB 2.0.x ?

Ummm maybe the 2.0 trial is a bit different than the full version.  I would have to look more into the problem.  At the moment I don't have any time to do so :(.

Where did you get the first one btw?

What errors are you getting?

I would highly recommend contacting your host and ask about MySQL version and possibly upgrading if they are using such an old version of MySQL (3.23.58). MySQL 4.x.x itself is no longer supported by MySQL AB and so is MySQL 3.x.x.

Personally I would recommend any MySQL 5 version (I am using the latest 5.0 release which is 5.0.51 5.0.67 I believe) as it is supported by the MySQL AB team and has improvements over the older versions, but even having any version of MySQL 4 would be better than what you currently have.

If you are going to upgrade MySQL, please make sure to read the MySQL documentation on upgrading and have backups incase the worse happens.

Well it appears that a few attachments and some avatars did not convert. If that isn't a worry to you then you can ignore those.

For the avatars not converting it looks like it is missing a setting that tells it where the avatars are uploaded.

For attachments it looks like the attachments path may be incorrect.

Can you please make sure to use the last package for download on the Downloads > Converters page, for SMF 2.0 RC3? (or to confirm if you were using it)

Trying to convert ipb 2.0.4 free hosted to SMF 2.0.

I downloaded the .sql backup of my ipb, imported it into a new database.  Downloaded SMF 2.0, installed it to the SAME db with the same user and perms.   Installed the convert files, created a custom conf_global.php, put it in the correct place, gave it the correct parameters, and the conversion starts...

except..

"Converting...

Any suggestions?

A year ago had to convert my IPB v2.0.* forum to new SMF 2.0.11 version.
It was very hard, but I did it  :D

Improvements I made:
1)Changed old domain "olddomain.org" to "newdomain.com" in every post(even pm).
2)Fixed attachment problem(converter couldnt find them).
3)Fixed all IPB-style links, like "index.php?showtopic=", "index.php?showforum=", "index.php?showuser=" to SMF-style.

Enjoy this script  ;)

P.S: I want to thank the converter.php authors for such a great work !
