Well, your heart was in the right place.  Smile

Later: Mea culpa! I looked at the code some more and found that I had done some bad copying and pasting.

I was able to run the merge to completion, but it looks like virtually nothing was accomplished. The old system had been up for a number of years and has a bunch of users and plenty of posts. Here is part of the merge report:

Hmm, I can't find anything wrong in your first post. Are you sure the file was uploaded correctly and completly before you've run the merge system?


RE: phpBB3 > MyBB Merge Fatal Error: Uncaught exception - LaneLester - 2015-06-22

Hey, Jones! Please see the reply I was composing while you were writing yours.

Have you selected the correct database? As mentioned I hadn't any issues and imported over 10k of users with your database.

There's only one phpBB3 database on the server account. I looked at it with phpmyadmin and saw 47 users and only 1 post! I may not have been looking it right, but maybe something bad happened to the old system.

It does seem like the 47 users should have been imported. Only two are listed; they were added when MyBB was installed.

Later: I looked at the 47 usernames, and they're all bots! I don't know what's going on.

If you imported >10K of users, that sounds very wrong. The board isn't that popular.

I can't get hold of the board administrator, so I can't check things right now. I can't even log on to the old board.

I'll post more when I know more.

OK, at least part of the mystery is solved. It turned out there were two sets of tables in the database, and I had selected the wrong one.  Confused

This time I got a lot of stuff merged... well, I thought so, but now when I load the board, it doesn't show the merged stuff. It just shows the two posts I created before the merge. Here is part of the merge report:

The admin section shows that the users (about 10K of them are bots) were imported, but nothing else. Here is the admin report:

Have you run the recount and rebuild tools in the ACP and rebuild the caches?

My bad. I had failed to do that. Now I've run all the R&R tools successfully, and I told the Cache Manager to Rebuild and Reload All. The admin home now shows this:

Looks good... but the actual board still shows only the two posts! I cleared my browser history to no effect.

Your main forums are forums, which can't be displayed by MyBB. You need to go to your ACP -> Forums and either change them to categories (which may not always work as some of them contain threads) or create a new parent category. That's one of the issues I mentioned before:
