yabbse members list import to sme
« on: September 21, 2005, 08:29:45 AM »
What is the best way to do this ? I dont want to bring anything else across just the users I am sure that someone has done this before.

Thanks in advance

You can use the SMF upgrade package on the downloads page to upgrade from YaBB SE.

1. Upgrade from YaBB SE.
2. In phpMyAdmin, rename the members table to have a different prefix (or just call it "members")
3. Drop all the other tables that were created.
4. Install a fresh copy of SMF on that same database.
5. Drop the newly created members table and rename your other one to match (ie smf_members)
6. Go into your admin center and do a "recount all totals and statistics" (under "forum maintenance") to update the stats

I'm not sure why you just want to import the members since you can get the whole board...
