here is a php to YaBB converter http://www.yabbforum.com/community/YaBB.pl?num=1137279141 ; But do not believe it has been updated for phpbb3 ... if your using an older version, should work.

Thanks, I'll check it (I have phpbb2),but I care about MySQl. Can It work with that database online? Or I have to write some script for it?

YaBB doesn't use a database, it's flat-file only.  The next version (Y3) will support either a flat-file format or a database.

I know about flat-file. But It's not one file in one folder...
I have to wait for third Yabb or ...Can I have better way on the second version?
What would you suggest me?

And some question:
When Will be Yabb3?
What database will be use?
P.S. Thanks for your attention and sorry for my level of English=)

Your English is fine.  I understood everything you were asking.

Well you really have 3 choices at this point;

1. Follow Capt John's suggestion and see if your phpbb version will convert.
2. Wait for Y3
3. Install the forum without converting and have all your existing members join.  You won't have the old data, but you'll have a new forum.

There is no date set yet for the beta release of Y3.  The goal was to have it released later this year.  Whether or not that goal can be met is still unknown.

Thanks! It seems I must wait for Y3 because work with database(mysql) is important for me.
I believe in Yabb...
...but perl hope to be better.
Good Luck Wink
