Hi,
I don't want to pay for ipb 2.0 and i think FUDforum is the best forum i've seen but i need a converter.
I have about 150 000 messages to convert and before doing this i wanted to know if the ipb 1.1.x converter is ok or not?
Thank you very much
Chris

Hard to say, I suspect there is a good chance an old conversion script won't work and new one needs to be written. But you can certainly try it, it won't break the existing ipb forum.

As i have a private server i copied my database to an other to test the script.
I hope to test it this we. I don't know if it exists a difference between 1.1 and 1.3 database for ipb.
I'll give some feedback.
If it fails I'll try to convert to phpbb and after to FUDforum Rolling Eyes
Thanx

Some bad news...
For a reason i ignore the script stops before converting all members. It stops at 90%. I don't even talk about messages Smile
No error message, nothing.
I don't even see the print "Importing forum members" Shocked
What can i do?
I have a large forum, 2500 members, 150 000 messages.
I can access to the php.ini and i have ssh access also.
Of course i can export ipb tables (1.3) without any datas for test
Thank you

I suspect the script reaches maximum execution time limit before it had a chance to finish... Try raising that value or running the script via command line.

I never run a php script via command line.
I suppose you mean with putty (or other)?
Reading this page, i saw the "max_execution_time" is set to unlimited, a good news Smile

Thank you

chris

ps : i think a lot of ipb users are thinking about change 'coz of new deal with 2.0 version.

Yeah, via putty (ssh) or via telnet.

One of the possible reasons why importing users is slow is because the forum is importing remote avatars and validating them. You can try disabling that code in the conversion script to see if it addresses the speed issue of the conversion.

BTW, if you are willing to provide a data dump of your forum I will be able to write a direct ipb 1.3 to FUDforum conversion script.

Be sure to unlock the forum 1st via the admin control panel (Lock/Unlock) before running it, otherwise you will get permission errors.

I think you misunderstood me, when I said data dump I ment the dump of ALL the data in the forum, not the just the SQL table structure. The way we design conversion scripts is literaly converting the forum based on the datadump and ensuring that the final result resembles the original as much as possible. Consequently a solid conversion utility is created.

Sorry.
The problem i have is the size of my database.
I can give you a link, this evening, to a .tar.gz of about 27 Mo.
Is it ok or a little big?

That's fine, send me a link via a private message and I'll try to write a dedicated conversion script in the next few days. If possible also give me a URL to the original forum so that I can compare the converted data to the original.

Also please include the conf_global.php file (remove any sensetive info from it like passwords). And the sources/lib/post_parser.php file, looking @ the old conversion script it seems have been used.

if possible also please provide 5-10 file uploads and avatars so that functionality could be tested as well.

Done.
I asked on the french forum of ipb about changes between 1.1 and 1.3 database.
I'm waiting for an answer.

I converted my forum from ipb to fudforum this we.
It worked at 99%.
I have problem with permissions and i need to do again all, not a very big problem.
But i had an other strange problem.
Even if i did the "Forum Consistency" i have a problem with last messages.
For example in a thread i have all messages but when i check index or i navigate thru the forums the "last message" is wrong. It's not the last but a message posted sometimes ago.

The messages are ordered based on their post times, if there is incosistency in those there is little FUDforum can do.
