Importing Databases / New - -Catagory colors
« on: March 16, 2004, 12:23:14 PM »
I would like to import my members from my YaBBSE board

I have a lot of important information here that I need to have for the new boards (powered by SWF)

What is the easiest way to do this without having to enter each of the 25 something thousand fields manually? Or is that what I'm destined to spend the rest of my life doing?  :'(

Copy over the members table and run upgrade.php from the upgrade/update package.

Thank you [Unknown].

 Now that you've phrased it that way It's obvious that it isn't the first time you've answered that question. I didn't think it would be that easy so sorry for not looking it up first. I usally spend a half hour looking through thousands of posts. heh

Thanks again  8)

Nah, it's just not that hard... I actually have not answered this question before.

It doesn't?  Where does this cause problems?

I seem to remember ' not being allowed in memberName.
