Yes.  Long story short, the original guy who leased the wowbb from wow got locked up.  He's sending me login info so I can transfer it to my server, but, like several of the mods, I hate wowbb.

I've already got yabb running on my server and want to import the threads, users, etc, over before his subscription runs out in a few months and it's shut off.

Ok. Wowbb is one of these remote hosted ones , with a license option to run your own. PHP/mySQL too.
What sort of size is it and do the users make use of all the features?

Here's 2.2. It successfully converted Dan's phpBB2 board, which was the largest test of the converter so far. This should be the best build to test.

Well, I need to release a new version with a crucial phpBB fix in it, but you need to download the latest zip file and read the readme file. It might not work -- it's still beta code.

HI, thanks for replying so fast. I have about 80 members and about 300 topics, and 2 boards. I use cpanel, and have just realised that they have changed to yabb, which looks fantastic compared to phpbb. Well Done.

Well, if you're feeling adventurous, try this Beta 2.3. Check out the readme.txt file and let me know if you have any problems.

I must apologize. I have encountered some very weird bugs with the converter (in the phpBB2 side of things, the Eblah one should be fine). These bugs include duplicated topics and the same member with every post in a topic.

If anyone has any ideas, please let me know. I'll continue hacking away at it, though.

I made some progress on the issues. I'm going to run it against Dan's server and hope that it'll work well enough to release a Beta 3.

I keep meaning to test run the converter, things are chaotic at work and time is tight, I will try to find time to test beta 3 when it comes out

Heh. It would've resulted in some interesting YaBB data. I only have one more thing to deal with (Ezcode conversion, which is specific to your board), and then I'll give you a zip.

That, among other things, should be fixed in Beta 3. I plan to release that tomorrow. (There is a workaround for now, but the phpBB2 converter in Beta 2.x has a bug that makes converting pointless since the data will be bad.)
