No, I am the original author of the UBB.classic => UBB.threads import script as well UBB Accelerator. I was just surprised how complicated it is to import a predecessor to a current UBB.threads installation.

I was talking about the redirection scripts that are included in the ubbclassic_6_7_import.zip. These redirection scripts are necessary to redirect any existing UBB.classic links to the new UBB.threads installation.

This is a possibility. If UBB Accelerator worked previously in Ubuntu 14.04/PHP 5.5 then there might be an easy fix by removing line 55 from ultimatebb.php:
PHP Code
set_magic_quotes_runtime(0); 

The function set_magic_quotes_runtime is no longer available in PHP 7 and cause a PHP Fatal error on never versions of PHP
