Hi....

I'm in the process of setting up FUD so we can play and hopefully switch over from Phorum. We just switched from PHPBB not that long ago, so another switch would have to be painless to our users or there will be much complaining <grin>.

I dumped the Phorum db and loaded it into a spare database (mysql) and made a copy of the Phorum setting directory with the appropriate changes to reference the new db.

The install went okay, but I'm having problems converting.

--------SNIP----------
Warning: Failed opening '/home/ryansgate/www/forum/include/theme/default/static/glob.inc' for inclusion (include_path='') in /home/ryansgate/www/forum/include/core.inc on line 54

query failed: %( DELETE FROM cat )% because %( Table 'phpBB3.cat' doesn't exist )%

--------SNIP----------

The actual problem seems to lie in permissions. FUD is pretty aggressive with permissions and I am basically locked out as all the important directories now belong to the webserver user and group. This is on an ISP's server and I have no root access (makes me feel kinda naked, really) to change permissions.

As a result, I think the script can't get at the MYSQL_TBL_PREFIX and thus can't find the tables it wants.

The file manager is somewhat helpful, but I can't fix the permissions in the settings dir in my home directory with it.

I've seen some else somewhere here mention this permissions trouble.

Any ideas?

Few questions that I hope you can supply me answers with.

1) Are you running the conversion script from the web or shell?
(you should be running it from the web).
If you want to run it via the shell then you need to:
to to admin control panel and use the File Lock/Unlock admin panel to unlock files 1st.
2) Is the conversion script located inside forum's main web dir?
(if not move it there).
3) What FUDforum version are you using?

It's 3.3.2a..... I just noticed that there is now 3.3.2b3.

Perhaps the schema has changed??? I can always upgrade Phorum and try again.

The upgrade script is known to work with 3.3.3 release, for which it has been written by me. It should work from that release fine.
If you can it would be better if you could upgrade to that release and try the upgrade script I've included in my previous message.

Nah... no luck.

Dumped the test DB and then reloaded a copy of the real board. Got a copy of everything all working.

Converted to phorum-3.3.2c successfully. (logged in, posted, etc)

Ran phorum.php (via http) and got the same thing:

Unfortunately I have exhausted about all the time I have to spend on this so we'll just have to stick with Phorum for now.

Nonetheless, I appreciate the help you've given me.... perhaps if I come back to it in the future I can impose upon you again....
