Copying Users and Database to new forum

Post by cavanfishing » Thu Sep 30, 2010 10:28 am

Hi. Love the Mod btw, top marks!! ;)

Now to my question.. I currently have a phpbb3 forum running Green Vision style. Basically I want to know if it is possible to copy all my Users, Posts, Topics etc from old forum and populate my new Modphpbb3 site?
I have tried by copying across the main aspects like topics, Users, posts and forums but I keep getting a "Topic doesnt exist" message even though I can clearly see the topic on the new board within the relevant forums.. What have I done wrong please or is it way too much hassle to try and complete this task and if so what are my alternatives?


Thanks so much. :wave:

How tho when u cant change the DB table name
ie phpbb you cant change to example phpbb3_
because the users will not convert over?
