Not Solved phpBB 3.x import: can't handle orphaned attachments
Not Solved

Looking at the attachment it's choking on, the problem is that there's no post ID that matches, and the attachment itself is orphaned (in fact its "is_orphan" value is 1). I don't know how reliable the is_orphan value is, but checking that is certainly better than nothing, although of course the importer should also ensure that it has a pid to attach to.

Anyway, this simple change seems to have gotten things working for me for now:
--- merge/boards/phpbb3/attachments.php	2015-07-06 09:30:50.000000000 -0700
+++ merge-new/boards/phpbb3/attachments.php	2015-11-15 09:57:58.803000987 -0800

+		$query = $this->old_db->simple_select("attachments", "*", "is_orphan != 1", array('limit_start' => $this->trackers['start_attachments'], 'limit' => $import_session['attachments_per_screen']));
 		while($attachment = $this->old_db->fetch_array($query))

although a better fix would be to change the merge system to ignore attachments which don't have a matching import_pid, or to orphan them appropriately (I don't know if myBB supports orphaned attachments).

i have the same error where i will replace this code
