Converting to SMF
« on: October 28, 2007, 04:56:39 PM »
I have been a SMF person a few months a go and I went to YaBB.
I now wanted to have PHP but I can't get throught the converter. I get half way throught the process and I get an error when converting boards and categories.

Converting boards and categories... Unsuccessful!
This query:

    ALTER TABLE `rovin_smf1`.smf_categories
    ADD tempID tinytext;

Caused the error:

    Duplicate column name 'tempID'


Thanks.

Hello, I know it's an old topic and sorry for the long delay, but I'd like to know: were you able to convert?
    Please do not PM me with support requests unless I invite you to.

Nope. Sorry for the late reply. I am using SMF but a clean start, I would like to have my other forum (YaBB) posts/threads/members.

You are using the converter int he sticky right?  The issue with the duplicate column names don't occur with the one on the sticky.

Successful.

Not quite done yet!
This conversion has paused to avoid overloading your server, and hence not working properly.
Don't worry though, nothing's wrong - simply click the continue button below to start the converter from where it left off.

EDIT: I seem to have got it to work, If I find any problems - I'll let you know, thanks for you help and time. :)

Let me know if you get other errors.  I believe that I fixed that undefined error.  Need to check and see.
