Hi

Impressive support I've seen so far. I am purchasing a forum from a community member at a wholesale forum. What I want to do is move to UBB (as a friend in Uni has two boards and they are both impressive on UBB). Although he's quite proficient, he has never done an import or forum move before. The forum I'm buying is a phpbb, which I am familiar with, and have also done some pretty basic coding on in the past. What I need is a step by step or wiki to follow when doing the move, (and I will be testing it first with backups). I know there's a script to do the import on phpbb, but I want to ensure I am following a step by step when moving the hundreds of posts etc. Can you provide a link to such a wiki or pdf? Many thanks. Mark

Well, the admin forum here has a couple of upgrade guides; the ubb.threads6 to .threads7 guide is pretty much the same as what you'd do for phpbb...

Yep, it's pretty much the same no matter what product you're importing from: https://www.ubbcentral.com/doc_import.php
