Give it up. Find a company that will guarantee the conversion for you IF its a really serious forum that you need. These scripts provided here are not supported and simply doesnt work in any kind of larger production type forum especially if you are running Plesk and CentOS...

Yes it costs a few hundred BUT worth every penny and then some. And not one post out of place, or one user missing ,or one PM lost when they are finished. Takes 2-3 days on average..forget that 2 hour stuff. Its a lie...

Best money I ever spent and would do it again in a heartbeat...
