Please check out:
Converting to SMF

You can find a converter in Downloads/converters.

No mods can possibly be converted, however the important data is converted: posts, members.

NaYa,

You would want the vBulletin 3.7 converter.  We haven't developed a 3.8 converter, but the 3.7 converter works just fine.  You will want the SMF 2.0 converter, but please remember our 2.0 converters are in development and are only released for public testing :)

Attachments should be converted, just like members, posts, avatars.
Have you tried the 3.7 converter?

There is no problem either way : the converter might work well or not so well, but it won't do anything wrong, so in case there are problems, please let us know.
In any case, you will want to know that the 2.0 converter is not stable yet (it may have a little more bugs), the one to 1.1.10 is considered stable.

Sorry, the database connection information used in the specified installation of SMF cannot access the installation of vBulletin 2. 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 ''

About the error:
Please make sure that the user of the SMF database has access to the vBulletin database. You can do that in 2 ways: by installing SMF in the same database as vBulletin, or, in your administration cpanel, make sure that the user of the SMF database has all rights in the vBulletin database.

On another note: can you please tell how big is your forum?

That's fine, if I understand correctly: so now the new user is the user declared in the SMF installation, and SMF was installed in the same database.
Please make sure you copy the convert files in your SMF directory, and run the conversion.

Then please run convert.php, enter the appropriate paths, and the database user password, then convert. In case it doesn't work well, please copy paste here the result.
