You can reupload the Members/admin.vars file from the YaBB2 package. Alternately, you could rename your oldusername.vars file to admin.vars. You wouldn't directly own the old posts anymore, but it could work.

The best way, IMO, is to upload an admin.vars file, and change the password on that to something really long. Then continue to use your phpBB admin account, since it can do everything that the "admin" account can.

ok I figured it out however, it lets me login using my old username from my old board rather than Admin. Is there anyway to change this?  Undecided

The  converter.pl is in the yabb2 folder. So I have to manually move the files/folders in the Converted folder into my yabb2 folder and then delete the convert/converted folders?  Sorry for being a pain lol But I am a noob at this.  Undecided

Did you move the converted files over? By default, they appear in the ./Converted/ directory (where . is the directory containing converter.pl). So you'll need to move that data to your YaBB2 folder.

It said that everything went fine and everything was converted, however when I go to my forum.Yabb.pl there is nothing there, nothing changed. Just the usual forum you find when you first install.   Embarrassed
