Converting a phpBB3 forum to SMF in a free hosting service
« on: June 09, 2009, 07:06:57 AM »
Hi! I have my phpBB forum installed in a free server. It gives me only one MySQL database, so I installed SMF on another domain from the same hoster. The problem is that I saw that the converter script can't convert remotely, but only in a single server. Can my conversion be done?

yes, you can import your MySQL database backup to another server, then install SMF and convert your database to SMF. You only need to emulate the config.php from phpBB ..
