Not Solved No PHPBB2 merge module

Not Solved
I searched for modules to convert pbpbb2* to another forum platform and was happy to see that myBB that I run on another site had this.

Now after installing 1.8 it however seems like phpbb2 support is lacking, as I cannot find it in the list using the Merge tool?

How can I rescue my old forum and convert it to myBB?

(* : have to switch from pbpbb2 on a 14 year old forum due to webhost forcing an upgrade to php 7.x from php 5.3)

as you noticed, Merge system for phpbb2 to MyBB 1.8.x is not available

you can locally (eg. XAMPP) upgrade your forum to phpBB3 and then to MyBB 1.8.7

Trying to run using PBPBB3 module:


MyBB SQL Error

MyBB has experienced an internal SQL error and cannot continue.

SQL Error:
1054 - Unknown column 'group_id' in 'where clause'
Query:
SELECT COUNT(*) as count FROM phpbb_users WHERE user_id > 0 AND username != 'Anonymous' AND group_id != 6

Please contact the MyBB Group for technical support.

I will check it out, but I fear the upgrade to PHPBB3 will fail too if it is strict, as we had several mods.

phpBB3 was a complete rewrite of their software; thus phpBB2 and phpBB3 have differing MySQL database schemas.

you may have to deactivate (& uninstall) all MODs before upgrading to phpBB 3.1.9
