Important Warning for phpBB and SMF migrators (creating new users into Joomla sends emails!!)

Current version of phpBB and SMF migrator sends emails in some environments when users are created into Joomla.

I'm not sure if the emails are created always or if it's just some version of Joomla where that happens.

Please provide any feedback on your Joomla version if you see this happening, as I really need some help to find out when this is happening, as I have emailing disabled in my local test environment.

Hi
I'm new to Kunena - have been using phpBB3 for a well established forum, but we are updating our website to use Joomla & JomSocial and would prefer to use the most recent version of Joomla so am moving away from PHPBB3 as I'd need to stick with v1.5 to use the extensions which connect phpbb3.

We have a large database for phpBB3 (180MB!!!) and a large userbase so was wondering has anyone used the migrator successfully with such a large database?

Really need to avoid this issue others have reported of having emails sent out enmasse too - would cripple the server to send so many!
Many thanks,
Sadie

the database we converted was 250+MB, it will do it with ease just be aware of the mailing issue, also we had issues where £ . / - that were on the phpbb3 DB came out as a load of crap a couple of sql queries fixed that if you need them ill post them in here for you o// AS FOR MAIL ISSUE do the conversion at local level then transfer to a sql file upload via ftp then do a big dump, it will be faster and will avoid the mailing issue :-)

Hiya, Thanks for the help.
How would you go about doing the conversion at a local level? Did you use XAMPP or similar or will the convertor run on my windows machine?

Having issues at the moment importing the big sql dump back into phpMyAdmin (I exported so as to not work on the live db & domain) so have a copy on my local machine which I can work on easily!
:) Sadie
