Ok, we go the easy way ;) try the attached version. you should be asked for a database and table prefix.

OK, we're making progress. Managed to import the vBulletin database into the new database I created but can't get past the first page of convert.php.

If the details in Settings.php are as follows:
$db_name = 'account_smf1';
$db_user = 'account_smf1';
$db_passwd = 'xxxxxxxx';
$db_prefix = 'smf_';

and the VB database details are:
db_name: account_vbdump
db_user: account_vb
db_passwd: yyyyyy
prefix: account

What should the correct details be for MySQL database & Table Prefix & passowrd?

Thanks,
Benz1

ups, different databases with different MySQL users / passwords is a problem. SMF must be allowed to read the vBulletin database. you shoul use the same database for both SMF and vBulletin.
Then use this for the database and "account" for the prefix (your vBulletin table prefix).

Oh ok, so I should have imported the VB database into the existing SMF database? I could point Settings.php to the new one but I guess I'd lose my admin account on SMF then. I actually had to get my host to import the dbase as I couldn't do it. If this is the answer then I'll have to ask them to re-import it into the SMF database.

Hi TE,

Made more progress but am stuck again.

Managed to import the vBulletin database into my SMF database.
Ran convert.php using your updated .sql file. Worked out that the prefix actually relates to the prefix of the imported database so
MySQL database: massive_smf1
Table Prefix is mos_ (from imported VB database)

When I ran it I got
Converting members... Unsuccessful!
The error was that massive_smf1.mos_user was not found

I noticed that there was no table mos_user but there was mos_users so I edited your sql file and changed 4 occurrences of user to users.

Ran convert again but this time got:

Converting members... Unsuccessful!
This query:

    SELECT
    u.userid AS ID_MEMBER, SUBSTRING(u.username, 1, 80) AS memberName,
    SUBSTRING(u.username, 1, 255) AS realName,
    SUBSTRING(u.password, 1, 64) AS passwd,
    SUBSTRING(u.email, 1, 255) AS emailAddress,
    SUBSTRING(u.homepage, 1, 255) AS websiteTitle,
    SUBSTRING(u.homepage, 1, 255) AS websiteUrl,
    SUBSTRING(u.icq, 1, 255) AS ICQ, SUBSTRING(u.aim, 1, 16) AS AIM,
    SUBSTRING(u.yahoo, 1, 32) AS YIM, SUBSTRING(u.msn, 1, 255) AS MSN,
    SUBSTRING(IF(u.customtitle, u.usertitle, ''), 1, 255) AS usertitle,
    u.lastvisit AS lastLogin, u.joindate AS dateRegistered, u.posts,
    u.reputation AS karmaGood, u.birthday_search AS birthdate,
    SUBSTRING(u.ipaddress, 1, 255) AS memberIP,
    SUBSTRING(u.ipaddress, 1, 255) AS memberIP2,
    CASE
    WHEN u.usergroupid = 6 THEN 1
    WHEN u.usergroupid = 5 THEN 2
    WHEN u.usergroupid = 7 THEN 2
    ELSE 0
    END AS ID_GROUP,
    CASE WHEN u.usergroupid IN (3, 4) THEN 0 ELSE 1 END AS is_activated,
    SUBSTRING(u.salt, 1, 5) AS passwordSalt,
    SUBSTRING(ut.signature, 1, 65534) AS signature, '' AS lngfile,
    '' AS buddy_list, '' AS pm_ignore_list, '' AS messageLabels,
    '' AS personalText, '' AS timeFormat, '' AS avatar, '' AS secretQuestion,
    '' AS secretAnswer, '' AS validation_code, '' AS additionalGroups,
    '' AS smileySet
    FROM `massive_smf1`.mos_users AS u
    LEFT JOIN `massive_smf1`.mos_usertextfield AS ut ON (ut.userid = u.userid)
    WHERE u.userid != 0
    LIMIT 0, 500;

Caused the error:

    Table 'massive_smf1.mos_usertextfield' doesn't exist

Tried changing this to users to but still didn't work. There is no field called textfield in the mos_users table.

Have now reached the limits of my technical knowledge so would be grateful if you could assist.

Thanks,
Benz1

can you check your database with phpMyAdmin please? is there a table named "mos_usertextfield' ? Are you sure this is a vBulletin 3.7.4 backup?

Have you given up on me?

Is it possible that the backup I imported was incomplete or didn't import correctly due to the size of the database?

Thanks,

Please try to redownload the vb Converter package from the official downloads page. It looks like Convert.php is corrupted in the one you downloaded.

HI/ what doe it mean -


Notice: Undefined variable: config in /home/*/public_html/new/convert.php(407) : eval()'d code on line 1

Notice: Undefined variable: config in /home/*/public_html/new/convert.php(407) : eval()'d code on line 1

 After -

Sorry, the database connection information used in the specified installation of SMF cannot access the installation of vBulletin 3.7. 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 ''

the database name from your vBulletin wasn't identified by the converter.

    '-1' AS labels
    FROM `ja000184_sarara`._vbpm
    LIMIT 0, 500;

Caused the error:

Hoy can I do?
