What version of Joomla are you using?

The Converter does attempt to split out your password and password salt, but it has a chance of failing.

this is going to sound really stupid, but exactly what do i have to do to convert to SMF from fireboard?

i guess what i'm askign is where do i put this convert.php file?

SleePy

In your SMF directory where the Settings.php and SSI.php are at

hello,

can anyone help me, i try to convert, then i get this error:

QuoteThe converter detected that your host has open_basedir enabled on this server. Please ask your host to disable this setting or try moving the contents of your Fireboard 1.0 to the public html folder of your site.

do i have to change the permissons on the fireboard component path? the path is readable for the hole world i think. i am not able to change open_basdir restrictions

SleePy

You can try to ignore this if possible.
Sometimes with open_basedir enabled things will cause conversions to not work due to it being restricted to access certain files.

Your host most likely will be unwilling to disable open_basedir so you are out of luck at trying that.

Hey the converter worked great and we were able to break away from fireboard. Thanks again!

Hey sheik28,

Were you able to convert avatars, personal info (msn, birthday, location...etc) and smileys as well? I tried several times with different settings but still no luck...

Just curious, not really a big deal since all my users and posts get transferred successfully. I am very happy to join SMF community. :)

cheers!

We didn't need to worry about any of those issues since none of our users had any of that info filled in. At the time we only had 10 or so members (we are now up to 130 and growing).
Good luck!

Thanks a lot guys!!!
THIS TOOL IS AWESOME!!!

I have Joomla! 1.0.13 with Fireboard 1.0.4.
I put the convert.php file and the  fireboard_to_smf.sql file in my SMF folder.
Then I go to hxxp:www.mydomain.com/foro/convert.php [nonactive]. Fallow the instructions to convert.
Open my FTP client and add:
// Maybe they are using a hash from before the password fix.
                $other_passwords[] = md5($_POST['passwrd']);  // Joomla pre-1.0.13 passwords style
                $other_passwords[] = md5($_POST['passwrd'].$user_settings['passwordSalt']); // Joomla 1.0.13 and up (in the 1.0.x branch)

to my LogInOut.php.

My new SMF Forum is running 100%!
The only thing that is missing: avatars. but I can upload it all of them again.

Thanks to all for your excellent work!!!

It may be possible that the category ids are higher than SMF will allow.
Run this query in phpMyAdmin and then run the conversion again.
ALTER TABLE smf_categories CHANGE id_cat id_cat smallint(6) UNSIGNED NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT

I feel retarded ..  but it says my path the smf is wrong.  I have tried all posibilities, but it always fails.  I can open and use smf, so it's there.  any advice?

SleePy

Is convert.php in the same location as your SSI.php and Settings.php? These are two files found in SMF.
If convert.php is in the same location as those two files you do not need to specify a path to SMF, only to Joomla (as it will complete it to fireboard).

hye guyz..
thnx to u all..

finally i am successful to convert fireboard to smf.
in the middle of progress im also having some probs but with guidance from the posts here
finally i able to cater those probs.

problems i have got
1. 255 Duplicates id for table categories
solve by alter table categories and table board  set id_cat from tinyint to smallint
2. login issue because im currently using joomla 1.53
solve by adding several lines of code in Sources/loginout.php
// Maybe they are using a hash from before the password fix.
                $other_passwords[] = md5($_POST['passwrd']);  // Joomla pre-1.0.13 passwords style
                $other_passwords[] = md5($_POST['passwrd'].$user_settings['passwordSalt']); // Joomla 1.0.13 and up (in the 1.0.x branch)

and not forget b4 i manage to let the converter to communicate with joomla 1.53 i've modify the joomla configuration.php and add these lines after <?php
$config = new JConfig();
$mosConfig_db = $config->db;
$mosConfig_dbprefix = $config->dbprefix;

last but not least i want to thank u all for these great advices
you guyz are awesome

Yeah ..  it is, but when I leave it blank or do a /home ..  or whatever it ALWAYS comes back with that error.  I get get into the forums just fine, so I am at a loss.

SleePy

Don't leave it blank. It should attempt to auto-fill in a path for you.

You could also make upload a script in your SMF directory with the below code and then execute it from your browser. This would tell you the path you need to use to SMF

<?php
echo dirname(__FILE__);
?>


You could repeat this process and put the file in the Joomla main directory and execute it from your browser and get the path to joomla as well :)

Hi:

Thanks for the converter.
Tho, just trying (on my computer, MAMP), and getting message: "Unknown column 'fb.karma' in 'field list' " - maybe after query line:
fb.karma AS karmaGood, SUBSTRING(m.email, 1, 255) AS emailAddress,

Not sure if maybe as I don't bother using karma (tried searching my joomla database, but not finding fb.karma).
Rather wonder, too, if may be problem I have mos_ as suffix in database, not jos_ - though rather looks like the convert.php can cope with this.

SleePy

What version of fireboard are you using?
It is saying the karma field doesn't exist

Fireboard 1.0.4
Just started using karma via fireboard configuration, but trying to add karma to one user, as test, not changing from 0; and search of the database for fb.karma remains blank. (Tried Fireboard config, turning karma on and off, user stats on and off, in case somehow would add karma field to database.)
Not sure if result of webhost recently moving servers, but I've lately noticed posts counts aren't increasing, so there's something odd with my fireboard and stats.

Update: after faffing about trying to get fb.karma into mysql table, thought I'd see if could edit convert.php to get rid of karma part. karma not present; but was in the .sql file.
Took out the short part re fb.karma converting to goodkarma, saved the file, tried convert.php again - and Presto! - a Simple Machines forum with posts  etc from Fireboard.

Hello ! Where can i get convert.php file ??
