I'm not sure if it's been addressed or fixed, but I converted from 3.6.4 back in November '07, and recently was made aware that the email privacy was set to public. Just a heads up. A simple SQL update query fixed the issue, though.

No clear answer or I missed it, Have the issues with vb 3.6.8 been addresses, can you convert from vb 3.6.8 to smf?

Thanks

I tried different converters+sql file but no results.

Can I convert from vBulletin 3.6.7 to SMF 2.0? If yes please provide me the files.

Thank You!

I did but it's not working. I laso tried several versions and still nothing... now I installed smf 1.1.4 then I'll make the conversion and if it's working I will upgrade it to 2.0 after all is ok.

I hope this way will work.

Well... first I tried on smf 2.0 to use the converter for vb 3.6.x but it wont start saying that it can't find the config for vb 3.6, atfer that I tried 3.5 and it was the same, last night I installed smf 1.1.4 and used the converter vb 3.6 to smf 1.1.4 or 1.1.2 and did not work eather because it couldn't find the path to the files but the convert.php and sql file were there... after that I started it manually (step1) and it said that the size of the sql file (if I remember correctly) is to big and that it's trying to rewrite some space but It did nothing... I have dedicated server, free space I have alot, unlimited trafic, etc etc so there is no problem with the server...

Now I installed from scratch smf 1.1.4 and now I'm waiting for one good converter from vb 3.6.7 to smf 1.1.4... then if it's working ok I will upgrade smf 1.1.4 to 2.0 and so I hope it will work...

How can you help me here? Ty!

Ok, I installed a fresh smf 1.1.4, uploaded the convert.php + vbulletin36_to_smf.sql in my smf directory, started convert.php and i have again this error:

"Unable to find the settings for vBulletin 3.6. Please double check the path and try again."

The path is exactly the one where my files are: /home/xvanish/public_html/smf

What can I do in your opinion? I need one working solution.

Thank you!

Nothing... forced converting with those files (convert.php?step=1) tells me alot of errors in multiple lines...

I really don't know what to do anymore :(

I saw that the php file is for version smf 1.1 and the sql file is for:

---~ name: "vBulletin 3.6"
/******************************************************************************/
---~ version: "SMF 1.1.2"

It's not attached the right .sql file or what?

Make sure the paths are correct.
One path is to your SMF forum and the other path is to your vb forum. These should be two different paths.
You will also need to enter you SMF mysql password for security reasons.

The converters do not yet convert to SMF 2.0 either. If you want to convert and use SMF 2.0 you will first have to convert to 1.1 and then upgrade to 2.0. I am sure though that sometime after 2.0 Final is released that there will be converters for 2.0.

I allready know about the fact that there are no convertors for smf 2.0 . I installed a fresh 1.1.4, Romanian language patch and I like it... the only problem that remains (I hope) is converting my db from vb 3.6.7 to the new smf.

Now, if I understand correctly what you wrote I think I found my mistake: at the path to my vb forum I  used the path to my db generated by my admin cpanel from my vb forum, this database I uploaded it to the server where I installed the new smf, in the same folder named temporarely "smf" and now I reallize that I must use the real path to my actual vb forum. If I'm correct there will be like this:

Path to SMF: /home/xvanish/public_html/smf  (smf is the folder where I installed the new smf 1.1.4) - here i upload convert.php + vbulletin36_to_smf.sql

Path to vBulletin 3.6: here I think is my mistake, please explain to me exactly how should the path be... untill now I used: /home/xvanish/public_html/smf/vb (in vb folder I uploaded my vb database)

Thank You!

yes. It must be the actual path to vBulletin.
The converter script will read the vB configuration files to find out information like database information and other things (Sometimes).
