I don't remember if we ever discussed this before, but I'm in a situation now where I need to import data from a nuked phpbb2 installation. I can provide the data dump if needed or if someone has tested a conversion of this type using the existing phpbb2 conversion script.

I suppose this one could have gone into help. Oh well. Anyway, I wanted to clarify that I am only interested in the forum topics, categories, and userbase.

In attempting to use the phpbb2 conversion script, I received only a white page with no errors and any other messages. I placed a new install of fudforum on the old server with the old data and made the changes as instructed. I called it from a web browser and got nothing.

Check your PHP error log to see if any errors were sent there? Also disable output buffering to make sure that converters messages are not being hidden from view.

In order to make this work for me, that is, I wanted to move from phpbb nuke on one host to fudforum on another host, I performed the following steps.

1) Download phpbb2 and install it on the same host with phpbb nuke.
2) Download PHP-Nuke Converter from http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=141446 and run it
3) Download and install fudforum to the same host
4) Download FUD's phpbb2 conversion script and run it
5) Download and install fudforum on the new host
6) Dump the sql data from the old host and import it into the new host using phpmyadmin (or mysql-dump tool and mysql clients from cli)

I hope others find this helpful as they move to a much faster, much more secure, and much more cleanly coded fudforum.
