Convert database from 1.1.4 to 2.0 BETA

we have great forum about graphic.
We want to upgrade forum to new version,but we have some problems.

We didn't find a database converter from 1.1.4 to 2.0 BETA.
We want to upgrade database only, because we change templat and don't want to upgrade file system, because we will use new installation SMF 2, but we must convert some data (members,pm,topics,messages, etc.).

I hope, that you understand my English.

Thanks for support


Please, can anybody help me?

Or, tell me, the best way to convert database.

Thanks very much


If you're going to convert your database, you need to convert your source/template as well, because a lot of things have changed.


i know, we change system - all files, because we change template, and our new template made on new version 2.0 BETA
that´s why we are seraching database converter, or the best way to convert DB


I don't think we have a stand alone db converter.  You can use the upgrade.php and sql files from the Large Upgrade package and run that.  But without the appropriate files it will probably fail at that stage.

Are you going to use the 1.1.4 forum after the conversion? If not, then just upload Large Upgrade files to that forum. Run the upgrade process and then take the db from that forum, download and install into your new 'customized' 2.0 forum.
