Is it possibile to convert from phpBB2 to phpBB3 making a copy, so not to overwrite phpBB2 board?

That's how it's done.

I'm currently in the process of converting.. and if I'm right, the only thing that happens is the Database preperation for Olympus, and all existing info ( users, forums etc. ) will just be converted. ( duh )

if this is how it goes, I hope it makes some things more understandable :)

EDIT: be sure to make a back-up, you never know :wink: although I'm sure most of you already knew this :)

I knew it... Another great Photoshop kid^^

I think I'll do a test upgrade from my 2.0 board tomorrow on my local server to ensure that it is the convertor and not super-grobi (yet another great introduction, acyd! ;) )

Oh wow, I'm really looking forward to the next release, whether its Beta 5 or RC1 doesn't really matter - I plan on doing some test installations just to get the feel of the new system before putting on my two sites.

Keep up the great work Dev team - we all love you :D

So what's gonna happen with this site once phpBB3 is out for good? I have to say I've become rather fond of this forum! Will the discussion be moved to phpbb.com?

APTX: I'm almost there as well :-) just need to convert users and posts/topics, which is a *beep*..

EDIT: oh no wait, it's there... but it isn't seen as posts. all forums say 0 topics, 0 posts and the same with my users. I suspect the same thing is with the private messages
