sheik28,
Did you edit the code I posted?

$config = new JConfig();
$mosConfig_db = $config->db;
$mosConfig_dbprefix = $config->dbprefix;


That above code requires no editing, just put it in your configuration.php for Joomla 1.5.x as I stated and it will handle the rest. It basically gets around the class that joomla has put all their variables into.

forepro,
Did you try the one I attached earlier?

Also we do have a UTF-8 Topic on this:

That did it!

I don't know where I got confused but I just thought I had to enter my DB name etc into that config file.

I just did it and the conversion is done!
Joomla 1.5.0 SMF 1.1.4 from Fireboard 1.0.4.
I didn't have the admin problem. I was able to log into my forum without any problems as admin immediately after.

Thank you very much for your help.

Hi SleePy

Yes I used the latest .sql you provided. http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=228775.msg1475822#msg1475822
With this one, it says avatar conversion was successful. (no warnings) But I still didn't see  user avatars in converted SMF forum. And I got warning messages for attachments as I posted previously. Does anyone have the same problems or it just happen to me?

As to the UTF-8 conversion, I did follow Sarge's instruction in that UTF-8 topic and it worked nicely! :)

Thanks!

SleePy

Are you sure its the same error?
The path is incorrect that it is using. There is no uploads folder in fireboard. I made that mistake when upgrading this converter.

Hi,

I'm using Joomla 1.51 (Legacy mode) with Fireboard 1.04. I did the changes in the file configuration.php, run the convert.php but then I get a page that says:

SELECT command denied to user 'bill_smf'@'localhost' for table 'jos_users'

Yes, I do have full access to the MySQL DB (phpmyadmin) and both forums are in the same host in 2 different directories:

- SMF: /home/user/public_html/smf
- FB: /home/user/public_html/Joomla

Any solution to this error?

Thanks in advance!

SleePy

Common conversion errors.

Can you verify you did add the SMF user to the joomla database?
The mysql user that SMF uses, needs to be able to access the joomla database.
You could change your mysql settings for your SMF setup and have it use a master one such as root if you still have troubles.

And I don't know what I can do please help me.

That error is saying that the max category ID that SMF allows by default has been reached. For some reason fireboard wants a category ID that is higher than 255..

You can fix it by doing this to your SMF database in phpMyAdmin (What is phpMyAdmin?). You may need to change smf_ to your database prefix if it is different.
ALTER TABLE smf_categories CHANGE id_cat id_cat smallint(6) UNSIGNED NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT  

Edit,
Oops, a Jay pointed out that tinyint only has a max of 255.. So we have to use smallint.

Hey guys,

I have Joomla! 1.0.13
FireBoard 1.0.4

Have filled in the info for the installation paths, but when i hit submit, it just times out and goes to a regular error page.

any thoughts

*update*

It never gave me a completion page, but it did import some of the data, up to december 2006.

no error at all.

I use firefox and the page tries to load and it just hangs.......that's it

SleePy

You said it goes to a regular error page?

Yep......

In internet explorer it just goes to "This page cannot be displayed"
and on Firefox, it pops up with a box to open convert.php on my desktop.  Which usually happens when the page doesn't respond or times out.

SleePy

Are you able to access the error logs?
Usually when that happens it sometimes goes to the php error log and other times it will be logged in the apache error log.

Correction

One error in the log:

[Wed Apr  2 20:10:45 2008] [error] [client 24.166.183.7] File does not exist: /home/wadmin/public_html/404.shtml

SleePy

Well that makes it a tuff one to debug without knowing why it is having the issue.

Do you mind sending me the url (pm would be best) and such of the test site you are attempting to convert?
