Hi!

Is there any way by now to convert a forum based on PHPBB3 to FUD?

There is one site that I'm trying to convince from PHPBB to FUD because of the possibility to sync to a newsgroup and a mailing list.

We have a converter for PHPBB2. However, I'm not sure how easy or difficult it would be to update it to version 3. Is the differences documented (especially the database schema)?

Best regards.

I've just managed to convert a default phpBB3 install to FUDforum. If you are serious about this, please let me know.

That sounds great! Are there any downsides? It will be a forum with some thousand users. Shell access is no problem. Some technical issues have to be solved before - that's what I'm doing at the moment.

But: The biggest problem will be to convince the current administrators and the board (some members of the board are supporting my idea - but we have elections in the next months so I can't really tell if I can convince the new elected persons)

I can think of two possible reasons:

1. PhpBB's avatar gallery path points to an invalid directory. Fix it and re-try.

2. Alternatively, you haven't specified the FULL path to the phpBB3 config.php file as per the documentation.

FULL path is H:\xampplite\htdocs\bb307\config.php (in phpBB3.php) and not something like ../bb307/config.php.

Naudefj,
Just so I'm clear, will phpBB3.php allow me to import directly from a phpBB forum to a FUD3.02 forum?

That's the idea, yes.
However, it will probably need a couple of tweaks for 3.0.2 (3.0.2 has a revamped DB layer).
