Opportunity to convert 5.1.6 to SMF 2.0.9
« on: April 04, 2015, 01:14:24 PM »
I have a 5.1.6 fairly large forum that I would like to convert to SMF 2.0.9, I was hoping to find someone here willing to help me complete the process.

I have paid subscriptions.

Hi and welcome to sm.org ;)

AFAIK there is no working converter for vB 5.x :( The latest ones available are for 4.2.x (IIRC)

I am willing to help you with the process but, for the most part, it requires an almost "from scratch" approach. There is nothing wrong with that, just that it requires a decent amount of work (translation: it's not going to be fast :P )

How we did this was to convert to IPB 3.x.x first then convert to SMF2 from there.

My concern is the passwords of each user, do they need to re-register?

Was this version of IPB free?

About the passwords: not sure... We need to try to discover what encryption does this version of vB uses

About IPB, not really...
