phpBB to MyBB Converter
#11
VERY ODD!

the $table_prefix is as it should be (phpbb_), so i tried your other fix

The phpbb forum sits at http://leelad.net/forum. I have tried setting the path as that and as "/forum" and "/public_html/forum" and still got the error.

What else can be causing the problem?

Hey guys,
great job with this convertion script, but i have a problem. After converting from phpBB to myBB i can't login to my Admin CP with an account that in phpBB had amdinistrative rights. When i login to the forum it shows me as an administrator, but when i click in the admin Cp link, then it says i must login again and when i do it it gives me again the login form in any frame...

Any Ideas??

Thanks

You gotta log in 2 times to get into AdminCP. If you click on AdminCP you gotta log in again. Security feature.

Now I have a different problem.
I am greek and my phpBB forum has both english and greek letters.
When i convert it to myBB the greek letters don't show up and i see questionmarks an other symbols.
Any help?
Should i change the encodign of the mybb database before converting?

I think you imported your phpBB data from another database into the new database. Make sure it uses the same encoding and check your tables for posttext before convert. Afaik i had many problems to import all the es, fr & it mixes into the new database.

phpbb_posts_text or phpbb_topics there you can browse with phpMyAdmin. If it shows correct there then you also can convert the tables.

phpMyAdmin export sql files as UTF-8. But on older mysql versions it's a big problem to import them. I had some problems to import the data. finally i copy and paste it splittet into the sql field in myAdmin.

hmm
i had almost the same problem in the phpbb database. At first the greek letters were saved in the database as a series of numbers with a '&' in front, but i managed to change the encodings etc. and after they were saved as greek letters. But now i see again that they are stored as strange symbols...
i guess that is the problem ...
