From phpbb3.3 to Smf2?
« on: March 31, 2020, 05:45:58 AM »
Hi there,

is there already a converter from phpbb3.3 or has someone tried to convert a phpBB3.3 into an SMF2 with the converter from 3.2?

You can set up a copy of your main forum and then why not try it yourself.

The private messages caused problems, I have now excluded them. so far everything went through, the statistics were not counted. Password was not accepted. I no longer have admin access even though I am in the admin group.

Password conversation is not a huge issue, you simply ask your users to reset their password once... But it might look like you are not having proper conversation on user groups & private messages which are no-go issues.

Please detail the errors with conversion process. I can work on a convertor just for phpBB 3.3

Did you end up getting this working?
