I have set up a RavenNuke 2.10 site and I have been trying to import members and posts from a current phpBB forum to the RavenNuke forum.

I tried a simple restore and it says that it restored successfully....NOT!.

I then went to phpMyAdmin and tried to import it with no luck.

The current forum is phpBB 2.0.22.

Any ideas? The phpBB to Nuke thread didn't help.

Yes, as hitwalker said, "why not?". What did you experience when you attempted this restore?

phpbb standalone uses another set of tables for users.

If this is a previous installation of Nuke, then you are missing some insert columns that RavenNuke uses, same also goes for phbb standalone, you will need to post the structure of both your old installation users table and possibly one insert statement that way we can better help you with examples.

This is what I get when I try to import it via phpMyAdmin

import.php: Missing parameter: import_type
import.php: Missing parameter: format

What I am trying to do is import members, threads and posts from a phpBB forum to the forum in RavenNuke.

Unfortunately you cannot do that directly. You will have to convert your phpBB to phpNuke first - I have a database converter here: Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login!

Next you will have to convert your phpNuke to RavenNuke. There are threads on this forum that discuss the process

Nope. Either I am too stupid or it just isn't gonna happen.

It's WAY over my head to comprehend.

Thanks anyway.

I read the instructions and I can't get it to work. It's most likely due to my lack of understanding of it.

Gotta start somewhere. What exactly don't you understand?

The entire instructions. Sorry, but, I am a phpnuke noob when it comes to coding and the MySQL stuff.

This is the part that I am having difficulties with:

You must have your phpBB and phpNuke tables in the same database
If not, use phpMyAdmin to export your tables into one database

If I am understanding this correctly:

A.) Do I create a new database and export both the phpBB and PHPNuke tables into it?

B.) Do I export my current phpBB tables into the existing PHPNuke database?

C.) None of the above.

The easiest would be option B.. one export is fine as long as they both end up together. Option A would also work, but it just means you have to do more.

Ok. Do I drop my current phpBB tables anywhere in particular inside the Nuke database?

No, just keep the same table names. Changes are, you've kept the default phpBB and phpNuke prefixes (phpbb_ and nuke_), and so there should be no tables that conflicted

Ok. I will get back to you later with the outcome.

This is my answer:

Error

No data was received to import. Either no file name was submitted, or the file size exceeded the maximum size permitted by your PHP configuration.

The file size is only 3.34MB. But, it says I can only upload 2,048KiB.

GZip doesn't work either.

Well, ruffle my feathers and call me Frankie! It worked!

I opened up the phpBB sql in Wordpad, copy and pasted the contents into SQL in phpMyAdmin, which was succsseful, ran evader's script and it worked!

Yeah, I think that was it.

This is what I changed it to:

Domain Name: Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login!

Script path: /nuke/modules/Forum/

Now I have to wait for somebody to reply to my post.
