Damn - lol - thankyou for your patience - its going alot smoother now I'm using the correct converter - lol. Didn't wanna risk the latest RC on a live site. Thankyou!

Norv

No worries, we have a little too many files spread around, it can happen. I think we should do a better organization of them...
Please let us know how it goes, if you wish.

The conversion went very well with just a couple of errors due to changes I made to my original fireboard install. I am glad I am finally rid of it.

walibe

Oh well it sort of worked. For some reason users actual names have become their username/logons which has screwed everything up. Will have to look into this.

walibe

OK I now realise SMF has a bit of an odd setup - users should still be able to login but those users that filled out their Real Names now have those as their Displaynames.

Norv

Yes... There is a login name, and a name displayed on forum, which can be different than the one you login with. For some reason, SMF does consider the display name equivalent to a "Real name" - the one you want to be known as, as opposed to the one you use as mere technicality, the login name.

So there was something actually unexpected here? What exactly would be expected?

Hello,

I installed SMF 1.1.11 and used the Kunena converter listed on the website, which actually says "fireboard 1.0" when you use it.

However at first it didn't work until I did the solution in the following post: (I had the same problems as him)
- http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=356252.msg2423176#msg2423176

However, none of the user passwords work to log into the forum. The only way I was able to log in was by using the forgot password feature and resetting my password.

It looks like the forum posts imported correctly, although it merged subforums into the parents forums.

Anyone know why the passwords don't work or how I can get them to work?

Note:
Password Fields:
Joomla - jos_members: Type = VARCHAR, Length/Value = 100, Collation = utf8_general_ci
SMF - smf_members: Type = VARCHAR, Length/Value = 64, Collation = latin1_swedish_ci

I used the converter located on the download section of the smf website. However none of my passwords work. So I found this post and tried to install the package: Fireboard_Login_Fix_v11.tgz 

But I consistently get this error:

QuoteThe package you tried to upload either is not a valid package or has become corrupted.

So I heard about the "Version Emulate Dropdown" package, which is a .zip file and installed with no errors. I tried switching the different emulation versions but it still ended in failure.

So I uncompressed Fireboard_Login_Fix_v11.tgz  and made it into a .zip file and tried again. Still, I get the same error. It seems like this just doesn't work. I'm using "SMF 1.1.11" btw.

Thank you in advance for any advice and suggestions.

------
Note:
Upon further investigation it looks like the mod just changes the login page to accept the old passwords. Does this mean it doesn't actually change the passwords in the database to be compatible with smf? My first impression was that the mod fixed the password field so it works correctly. However I am guessing that is not the case here huh?


Norv

The mod does change indeed the Login page, to accept the old passwords. However, immediately as they are accepted, at a successful login, SMF will hash them in its own way, and will store its hash in the database.

Please in case you didn't already, try making manually the little changes in the LogInOut.php file, so that it accepts the passwords.

i've used http://download.simplemachines.org/?converters;software=kunena , Kunena to SMF 1-1-11  converter , and am using Joomla 1.5 , am not sure if the problem connection to database , i set same password for all db, scripts , or the prefix

Norv

Can you please see also: http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=356252.msg2423565#msg2423565

I think we should add those instructions and configuration file (or something similar) in the converter package for Fireboard/Kunena for joomla 1.5+, but unfortunately we didn't do so yet.

Norv ,

After creating the configration file and change the values , am getting this  error

Fatal error: Call to undefined function loadDatabase() in C:\AppServ\www\try2\convert.php on line 414   , when using Kunena to SMF 1-1-11  converter  and :
Sorry, the database connection information used in the specified installation of SMF cannot access the installation of Fireboard 1.0. 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 database name ''

when using Kunena to SMF 2-0-rc3   converter

am 100% db name is correct in congigration file and phpmyadmin for joomla .

anything else to check !

Norv

Can you please make sure that: if you have SMF 1.1.11 installed, use the converter to SMF 1.1.11. If you have SMF 2.0 installed, only then, use the converter to SMF 2.0 (to SMF 2.0 RC3) :)

Norv , it workedddd ,  ;D Thanks alottttttttttt
its typoo mistake in the file name  ???

now i've problem with language its all ?????       ????? ??? 2 ????? ??? 1   questions marks ... its an encoding issue , but i've no idea how to fix it , appreciate ur help

Norv

When you start the converter, it asks about encoding. Can you please try to make sure you choose the right encoding as your data is?
Which is it, by the way?

If the first fails, then:
If you login in phpmyadmin, you can select the joomla database, select a table like "users", and see the "collation" column: what is it?
Also, in SMF's database, if you select the members table - and the "Structure" tab -, what is "collation" column?
