Manually convert PhpBB3 to YaBB2.2
Dec 2nd, 2007 at 6:42pm

Is there any way to manually move posts from PhpBB2 to YaBB2.2?  Like copy/paste from one database to another or something?  My old forum doesn't have a lot of posts so it wouldn't be that time prohibitive to do this (I think) and I really don't want to lose the old posts.

I saw that post but there are no attachments to download and I don't know enough about programming to use the code that's posted. 

Is there any other way?

Oh my.  I made a newbie mistake in typing...  I actually have PhpBB3 that I'm trying to convert to YaBB2.2.

If there isn't a converter for this, what is the best way to manually move the posts?

Not yet for phpBB3, especially since it is still a release candidate... phpBB3 RC8 was released just a few days ago, and as a RC is still subject to coding changes.

You may want to check in the phpBB community for a phpBB3 to phpBB2 (yes, go backwards).  Then you could convert from phpBB2 laterally over to YaBB.

Hope that helps.

Just wanted to update you on the results of this...

There is no converter for PhpBB3 > PhpBB2 so though your solution was innovative it is not workable at this time.

Since there weren't that many posts on the old PhpBB3 forum I just made new boards and manually transferred the posts.  If you want to see how it looks my YaBB2.2 forum is at:

http://forum.savejfc.net

This is for the Save John From Cincinnati Campaign (an HBO original series that ran the summer of 2007 and canceled after 10 episodes).  Our main site is http://www.savejfc.net

Thanks again for your help!
