Converter Issue SMF 2.0.x when sessions fail

Just had to troubleshoot a failed phpBB conversion
And noticed it relies on sessions. In this case looks like a server issue. But it would be nice to inform the user of error. Right it just says conversion successful but it doesn't actually convert anything

Error examples


Warning: Unknown: open(/var/php_sessions/sess_e5d00027fcc6c31174f76b4731473173, O_RDWR) failed: No such file or directory (2) in Unknown on line 0

Warning: Unknown: Failed to write session data (files). Please verify that the current setting of session.save_path is correct (/var/php_sessions) in Unknown on line 0


Did a temp fix on the top of convert.php and set to a writable directory such as

ini_set('session.save_path','/user/public_html/forum/cache');



Also an we get all the convertors on https://github.com/SimpleMachines/converters
Along with branches for each SMF version?

There doesn't seem to be any development posting for it.

Would also be nice to have SMF 2.0.x on github as well.

2.0 will probably never be public on github.

I don't believe that anyone is currently working on the converters, actually...

I think just having the files for the convertors on github will at least get some other eyes looking into the project and contributing/filing reports.

Well I think it would be far easier and far more effective if we work towards adding SMF 2.0 / 2.1 support to Open Importer project.

Right now we have way more convertors than that project does...
http://download.simplemachines.org/?converters

That hasn't been updated in a while either and doesn't have a destination system of SMF right now just converts away.
If we were to use that we would have to build that and remove porting to other platforms as an option.
