Hmm haven't tested with MariaDB will have to take a look
Rename it to MAX_JOIN_SIZE instead of SQL_MAX_JOIN_SIZE
And try again.

Hi, I'm converting another forum and I have the error "MySQL has gone away" during topics conversion.
My host does not change the timeout, what can I do?

Thanks

Massl

I have a problem with the conversion, both databases are UTF-8 and the conversion crashes with
Converting members...
Incorrect string value: '\xC3' for column 'real_name' at row 209


I'm using this version https://github.com/SimpleMachines/converters/tree/master/SMF2.0/MyBB/1.8

How can I limit mysql packet?

Converting members...
Incorrect string value: '\xC3' for column 'real_name' at row 209


I found the cause, one user with name "quìquòquàquòquì"  ::)
I have removed the accents and it works!

I have no words... he should be banned  ;D

I am trying to convert a MyBB 1.8.22 forum to the current release SMF.

i'm using the proper converter.

But I keep getting errors when I try to run the converter (all is properly installed per directions).

Sorry, the database connection information used in the specified installation of SMF cannot access the installation of MyBulletinBoard 1.8. This may either mean that the installation doesn't exist, or that the Database account used does not have permissions to access it.

The error that was received from the Database was: 1142

Both databases are properly installed in a Plesk Obsidian server, in the same domain. Each forum works properly so far as I can tell.

Suggestions?

Peace,
Gene

The database username needs to have permission to move databases in order to do the conversion.

All permissions I can see for the two users involved are checked in Plesk.

What am I looking for — or should it be the same user?

Peace,
Gene

vbgamer45

Same database user should be on both databases with permissions to access both.

Is there instructions around on how to use this converter. I have been asked to convert someone from Mybb to SMF. Just wanna get it right the first time.

Grab the .sql file for mybb 1.8 convertor and the convert.php file place in your SMF folder.
And then run it.
The SMF database user needs to have permission to access the mybb database.

So do a full install of SMF and place the files there and it will take care of everything ?
