Hey there. New to these boards and ravennuke, but I love it already.


Question is, I have a preinstalled phpbb forums already setup with it's own mysql database, and the appropriate settings and what not.

Could I use these in place of what's installed with ravennuke? IE can I swap out the forums folder, and move in my previous forum installation?

This would be a HUGE help. THanks.

No!
It is not so much the files themselves (though quite a few are moved from the forum directory to those within nuke) as the database structure.
It is do-able but a lot of work to convert from a standalone phpBB forum the nuke BBtoNuke forum system.

Have you searched for a phpBB to bbtonuke conversion script?

Those discussions seem so old, would they still apply to me today? I have the newest version of phpbb and I'll be converting it to the latest version of ravennuke.

Even if the data structures for phpBB have changed significantly (doubtful), the concepts are the same and maybe you find a utility to assist if you look.

If that works, that's a life saver (well, it's a time saver, and that gives me life back Wink )

Now, I have to have my old phpbb tables in the same database as my nuke tables, correct?

To do that, I should export my phpbb tables, and then import them in my nuke database, correct?

Also, if your converter requires me to manually change tables, I may run into trouble since my mysql knowledge is diddly.

Oh yes, and one more thing.

I was reading reports on how I should set the them in the old phpbb to subsilver, and change all private forums to public so as not to run into problems there.


When I do the conversion, will that affect the theme I have running in ravennuke? As I like the forums style that came with my ravennuke theme. I wouldn't want to change that.

Here goes nothing...


well, I completed the transfer, but if I try to click the login button on the forums, it takes me to my login page for my ravennuke.

EDIT: ok, nevermind. I think I got it working. But I'm a little confused about how ravennuke and the forums handle logins. The two credentials are indeed handled seperately, correct?

Thanks evaders - I thought there might be something out there, but didn't have time to search.

finalheaven, the login for nuke handles both. That's one of the reasons why the Nuke phpBB is a little different than standard phpBB. Some disable the forum login / profile, others replace the YourAccount with a modified forum profile, and still others have both.

Hmm, then that would explain the problem I've had.

How can I make it so one only needs to login into nuke, to gain access to both nuke and forums.

As it stands for myself, I have an nuke admin login, a nuke member login, and a forums login lol.

If you log in from the front page block or from the Your Account link this is the normal nuke log in and will allow a user access to both nuke and the forums.
This is the prefered method and you should not need to log into both.

If you cannot access forums after logging in, something else is causing the problem.

Are there preferred settings for the forums in order to aid that relationship? IE should i have certain settings in order to cause less problems? or all of this is done automatically? The only issue I've run in with, is people loginning in, and then when trying to access the forums, not being logged in to them, but refreshing the forums page fixes this and logs them in. I don't know if that's the way it's supposed to work, but it's working so far.

They shouldnt need to refresh the page, that sounds like a cookie problem to me but the majority of settings should have been done during the installation of Raven Nuke. Is you new site on the same domain as the old one? You cacould ask a couple of your members to clear their cache and cookies to see if there is a difference.

I have. It is indeed on the same domain, so I believe it's a cache problem. That's fine with me.


Question though; now that I've successfully moved the forums over, only after importing the phpbb database into my nuke database, can I delete all the phpbb tables?

Yes, you can delete the phpBB tables.

Always login through the Your_Account module. That will control the user, including the forums. The forums login itself doesn't work correctly, I recommend removing it from the template index_body.tpl
