Hello Philipp E. Its good to see you again, after all these years smile welcome back

UBB.classic Import Script Version 4.0 (May 27, 2006): ubbclassic_6_7_import.zip
* for UBB.threads 7.0 and Higher only
* Developed by Philipp Esselbach (office@esselbach.com)
* Further developed by Dave Dreezer and Charles Capps
* Then ripped apart and put back together by Rick Baker
* Thanks to Ian Spence for making it completely awesome.

As a note, the current version of UBB.threads is not compatible with PHP 7 either. The script package you're referring to (ubbclassic_6_7_import.zip) is a script to convert 2001/2002 UBB-Classic 6 (Perl/CGI) to 2004 UBB.threads 7.0 (PHP).

I would recommend that since this script has not changed since May 2006, and there have been many changes to UBB.threads database structure with each release series, is that it only be used for upgrading UBB-Classic 6.7 to the UBB.threads 7.0 series (version 7.0.0 was released October 2006). It should not be used to upgrade to any any of the 7.1 series or newer.

Please lets not confuse the matter by then talking about a version of PHP 7 that didnt even come to scene until December 2015, and isn't even compatible with any current publicly available version of UBB.threads. At the time of this post, that would be Ubb.threads 7.6.2, released September 2018.


UBB.threads Import Script Version 1.1 (March 03, 2007): ubbthreads_6_5_import.zip
* for UBB.threads 7.0 and Higher only

There is another package (ubbthreads_6_5_import.zip) which can be used to import the UBB.threads 6.x series in to UBB.threads 7.0 series.

Again, I would recommend that since this script has not changed since March 2007, and there have been many changes to UBB.threads database structure with each release series, is that it only be used for upgrading UBB.threads series 6 to the UBB.threads 7.0 series (version 7.0.0 was releases October 2006). It should not be used to upgrade to any any of the 7.1 series or newer.

This script also includes 3 files which can forward on-the-fly, old links in to the UBB.threads 6 format, to UBB.threads 7.x format. Those files are postlist.php, showflat.php, and showthreaded.php. Those three scripts have nothing to do with upgrading the software, or even converting the software from Perl/CGI to PHP. They just forward URLs.

As a reminder, the conversion/upgrade/forward...etc scripts in this discussion are all over a decade old. They are from 2006 and 2007, respectively.

PHP 5.2 was just being release in November 2006, and PHP 5.3 later in June 2009. To discuss PHP 7, Release December 2015, and compatibility with these untouched scripts, just seems pointless unless that is the new topic of this discussion, and there is true intent to actually upgrade those script and bring them current PHP standards.

Once you get your UBB-Classic in to UBB.threads 7.0 (requires PHP4 and will not work with PHP5), you can then use the UBB.threads upgrader script (included as part of the UBB.threads 7.6.2 install archive) to take you to the current UBB.threads 7.6.2 version, which works with PHP5.4 to PHP5.6.
