Unable to convert previous forum

Post by mjanulaitis » Mon Feb 02, 2009 4:35 am

I'm trying to convert my forum to use MySQL but when I attempt to convert an older SQL Server database via the install pages I always get the following error:

Could not find path to your former board. Please check your settings and try again.
» ../phpbb3 was specified as the source path.

my old forum is in http://www.foobar.com/phpbb3
my new forum is in http://www.foobar.com/phpbb304

What's the deal?

If both boards are phpBB3, you are trying to do something that is the convertor does not understand. If you're trying to update versions, you don't want to convert, you want to update.

The previous version is 302 so I can see why the convert failed. Is there a 3.0 SQL Server to MySQL converter?
