I want migrate my forum phpbb in 3.2.8 to joomla 3.9.12 and download that script and exchange that database names and prefix and now what to do woth that script? I don't undesrtand. Please teach me. What now with that script, it can not be installed into joomla and I don't know how to use it.
Is there any way to migrate all the contents of the community forum to a PHP forum without going through the process of having to pay for it? There is a website that will do the migration for you but after I entered in all my information it would cost $1000 to do the process which is obviously stupid money.
Notice that when you migrate with the script your userid in Joomla will shift to userid of phpBB 3.2. Another important thing is that migration with the script will change the superuser to a new, so you will be able to logg in. You can change back to normal after you logged in as the new superuser.
I had a number of errors, but it's been awhile since I tried it. After reading this thread and some other resources, I believe I need to use phone admin and assure my current database is in good shape.
I did download Toad and tried to figure it out, but agree it is not the most user friendly, especially for a beginner!
I intend to try the following: set up fresh Toad install on my Wamp server, optimize the current database on the site, make a backup, set up a fresh Joomla & Kunena on the Wa,p server, then try running the script once again. I will report back my results good or bad so we can continue to build this knowledge base.
Thanks for the replies - when I first started working on this last fall, there was zero activity on this forum topic or much else that was current. That you have been successful gives me great pleasure!
Are you possibly available for consultation directly,more possibly even available to assist should I continue to havering filthiest?
What errors did you get? You must check that the database tables that you are going to convert are OK by controlling them in phpMyAdmin. The most difficult for me was to find where I start the conversion in Toad.

Yes 3.1 => Kunena - no bridge installed. Fresh setup of Kunena. I suspect it may be a database issue as referenced above, so I'll give it another go.

I finally managed to migrate my database and enter the back office of my site.
I also reactivate the categories that were hidden. They appear now. More than a few tweaks to do.
After the migration, all visible posts are written in raw HTML and we see the code. Even by changing the Joomla editor, nothing changes. I think it comes from migration. All the codes appear instead of loading the format.
Have you solved this last issue? I am working on a project to convert a PHObb 3.1 to a Kunena 5.0 (or earlier) - I was able to discuss the project with the developer of the MixerERP script which was helpful. He quoted me a decent price to do the conversion, but I am going to give it a few more tries before giving up!
