convert from phpBB to YABB
Hi,

First, my apologies if this is covered somewhere and I missed it.

I just downloaded the YABB 2.2 software and have a question.

I am currently running a phpBB message board on my site and want to replace it with a YABB message board.

My messageboard data (users, messages) are located in a MySQL database.  

My question is this: Will I be able to convert/transfer/bring the existing data into the YABB board or will we have to start over from scratch?

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Just to update, I went through the conversion process last night and it went off without a hitch.

phpBB is gone and YaBB is up and running

Thank you.
