migration from phpbb3.1
« on: March 17, 2021, 08:37:27 AM »
Hello,

i try to migrate from phpbb 3.1.10 to SMF with "phpBB3 to SMF Converter".  When i run the converter the following error occured:

Sorry, the database connection information used in the specified installation of SMF cannot access the installation of phpBB3. 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

It seems there is a mysql permission issue. Is it possible to enter the credentials of the mysql user of the phpbb Database?

Or is there a way to migrate the Database export of my phphbb ?

Thanks for your support!

You need to make sure the SMF database user has permission to access the phpbb database.

I know, thats my Problem. This is not possible, my Website Provider does not allow to add a new user to an existing database .

You can copy your phpbb database tables or your SMF databases to the others database via export then import.
