  • Looking to switch from PHPBB3 3.0.8 -> Vbulletin 4

    My board is getting quite active, and we have accumulated the funds to proceed with the awesome Vbulletin.
    However I have one main concern, how difficult would the switch from a phpbb3.0.8 (Latest version) board be to a Vbulletin4.

    Will i encounter any troubles with saving posts/permissions/groups/users/passwords, ect....
    Please advise as I cannot afford to lose any data

    (Silly me should have went with vbulletin from the start )

    We do have an import script for phpBB3. You can read about it here:

    http://www.vbulletin.com/docs/html/impex_phpbb3

    Please note that since phpBB3 passwords are encrypted, they cannot be imported. Your users will need to reset their passwords after the import. You can read more about this here:

      Im having some horrible trouble with the conversion. Id like a refund. Can you please contact me about this? I just purchased 3-4 hours ago, and it seems like it will mess too many things up switching to Vbulletin. Please let me know regarding this.
