Re: Faster Converter to phpbb3

In your case I think the best option may be to ignore the avatars completely and do not convert them at all... Then after conversion display an announcement saying all avatars were lost during the conversion and ask them to re-configure their avatars from UCP.... This loss wont be much..... ;)

Re: Should we use UTF-8 without BOM for all files ??

Yes thanks for telling that... I ended up getting strange characters in my index page and then only noticed the encoding problem... :P

Should we use UTF-8 without BOM for all files ??

I was just wondering whether we need to use the UTF-8 encoding without BOM only for language php files or for all php and template html files ??

Re: Faster Converter to phpbb3

Yes dude you got to make a small sacrifice..... The best suggestion is to disable all posting, new user registration and subscribing to topics temporarily.... Then backup your entire db..... Download it onto your localhost - do a conversion.... Then upload the new db and the files onto your server.....

Re: Faster Converter to phpbb3

Yes what code reader has suggested is a nice option.... The main reason I m stressing doing the conversion locally is that you have more control over the DB than on the remote.... If you seem to miss some users or some posts then file a bug report for the phpBB 2 to phpBB 3 converter and also for th...

Re: Faster Converter to phpbb3

Or maybe not. time(dowload + convert_local + upload) < time(convert_remote) ? I don't think so, unless you're on a very very slow shared server. And you can't (shouldn't) enable your board while you're converting off-line, or those messages will vanish once you upload the converted db. If phpbb.com...

Re: Faster Converter to phpbb3

Because day without working is heavy finansal lost from advertise... user lost ---> more finansal lost etc. Yup because of best information in this 390.000 posts... we got up to 1044 users online I think the best way you can do the conversion would be to disable your forum, download the DB and conv...

Doubt in DEBUG_EXTRA and mysqli

I defined DEBUG and DEBUG_EXTRA from config.php and it shows the Debug stats at the bottom as expected.... On my own local server on my PC it displays the Memory Usage also when DEBUG_EXTRA is defined but on my host it does not display it..... Is it because my host runs an old version of php ?? Also...
