I have tryed to import users and posts from my phpbb3 forum, to the b2evo with the built in tool, but no luck, the import is stuck with php errors.

Please read this: http://b2evolution.net/man/phpbb-migration

Look in: /conf/_advanced.php

$debug = 'pwd';
$debug_jslog = 'pwd';

Change to:

$debug = 2;
$debug_jslog = 2;

Try again and take screenshot. Change it back when you are done.

Please post a screenshot of the errors here.

I readed carefully the instructions for the phpbb importing tool. I make all things right, but, it seems like importing tool searches the phpbb tables for a inexistent values. Some sort of incompatibility or something(( I have a phpbb 3.0.12

I think the BB import tool was meant for version 2, not 3.

Lets see what @fplanque has to say. In the meanwhile I will have a look and see if I can help.

My forum also have a tapatalk account and mobile app, I think if I import my data to the b2evo forum collection, tapatalk app will not work, so maybe more simply is to make the b2evo header show on my phpbb forum, and link somehow user profiles from forum to the b2evo accounts..... I'm absolutelly new user of b2evo.... so having little problems) Thanks for quick answers!

If you take that root it will require some work on your part. You will need to edit the phpbb template files.

I will not have other solution, if the importing tool will not work with my configuration(((...... The biggest problem ist that I don't know what specifically I need to change in Overal_header.html file of phpbb3 template file, to show here the b2evo header, instead of standart forum logo.

I am sure @fplanque will be better placed to advise you on the way forward. Just try and be patient in the meantime.

In the import process during step 1, what did you specify at: Table prefix:

Nov 25, 2016 17:46

You might have to change that to phpbb3_

my tables are called phpbbb, this setting is okay(i have put in import tool, the right values), also import tool says connection to database is ok, but it can't extract anything from tables, and searches for nonexistent entries((((

When you look in the phpbb database you should see if the fields actually exist. I haven't used phpbb, but sometimes if the database contains unrecognized characters it will produce the same error you got.

Also, it might be useful to post your php version here.

<?php phpinfo();?>

also post your complete database scheme. The top Part:

it should look like:



-- phpMyAdmin SQL Dump
-- version 4.0.10.7
-- http://www.phpmyadmin.net
--
-- Host: localhost
-- Generation Time: Oct 30, 2016 at 04:38 PM
-- Server version: 5.5.42-cll
-- PHP Version: 5.4.31

SET SQL_MODE = "NO_AUTO_VALUE_ON_ZERO";
SET time_zone = "+00:00";

Nov 25, 2016 18:43

the items that are called by the importing tool, are non existent on my database, this is the cause for the error.

MySQL dump 10.13 Distrib 5.5.51-38.2, for Linux (x86_64)
Host: localhost Database: bmwforum_base
Server version 5.5.51-38.2-log`

Hi @spellbound

We cannot help with phpbb3 header configurations but we can definitely make import of your phpbb3 database work.

The current importer is meant for phpbb2 but we can add support for phpbb3.

To make sure import will work for your specific case, are you willing to share an export of your database with us?

If so, please contact me via private message here. Thanks.

Nov 25, 2016 19:06

why is the table prefix phpbb3 when it should be phpbb

also, can you please post your database schema:

it should look like the example below (except for your phpbb database:)



-- phpMyAdmin SQL Dump
-- version 4.0.10.7
-- http://www.phpmyadmin.net
--
-- Host: localhost
-- Generation Time: Oct 01, 2016 at 12:06 AM
-- Server version: 5.5.42-cll
-- PHP Version: 5.4.31

SET SQL_MODE = "NO_AUTO_VALUE_ON_ZERO";
SET time_zone = "+00:00";

/*!40101 SET @OLD_CHARACTER_SET_CLIENT=@@CHARACTER_SET_CLIENT */;
/*!40101 SET @OLD_CHARACTER_SET_RESULTS=@@CHARACTER_SET_RESULTS */;
/*!40101 SET @OLD_COLLATION_CONNECTION=@@COLLATION_CONNECTION */;
/*!40101 SET NAMES utf8 */;

-- Database: `jacquljy_home`

-- --------------------------------------------------------

--
-- Table structure for table `evo_antispam`

CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS `evo_antispam` (
  `aspm_ID` bigint(11) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
  `aspm_string` varchar(80) NOT NULL,
  `aspm_source` enum('local','reported','central') CHARACTER SET ascii NOT NULL DEFAULT 'reported',
  PRIMARY KEY (`aspm_ID`),
  UNIQUE KEY `aspm_string` (`aspm_string`)
) ENGINE=InnoDB  DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8 AUTO_INCREMENT=18 ;

UPDATE: I see @fplanque made some suggestions

there are tow parts: the first is the schema, that you can share here, the second part is the data (input) probably not good to share here.

take whole database, zip it. Upload to dropbox and send to @fplanque a link via PRIVATE MESSAGE

Nov 25, 2016 21:32

Ok we already talked via private message. No matter what, do not share your data publicly because it may contain private info, like your users email addresses, passwords and more.

You can share the schema publicly though.
