no problem, other control panels often allow to change the permissions for the MySQL user. check the manuals.
last but not least you can install SMF in the same database as phpBB was installed. SMF uses a different table prefix (smf_ by default) and will not affect your phpBB in any way.

maybe a typo or the wrong database name? you can check this values in the phpBB file "config.php".

Hi there to all,

I start to admin a phpBB forum, and i try convert it to SMF forum.


The forum run in Dedicated  Server/ windows Plesk panel 8.6, and i handle it through FTP, windows remote desktop, Plesk panel.


The current forum (phpBB3) run in this directory

C:\inetpub\vhosts\myforumgr.com\httpdocs\phpBB_forum_files

I delete the phpBB portal and i shall delete (the only) youtube mod.


I create new folder (www) and upload the smf_1-1-8_install files, to this directory through FTP manager.

C:\inetpub\vhosts\myforumgr.com\www\SMF_forum_files



So, if i instal the smf forum and convert the phpBB in this (above) directory, may by conlict or affect with the current (phpBB) forum..?


Is possible to see/test if the new (after convert) smf forum work as it should and if so,
change the path's(..?) to put it online..?

To start convert, default language must by english in the phpBB forum..?


Best Regards,
Demetris

yes, you can test the conversion without issues. both forums are in different directories and use a different table_prefix for their database tables. There is no conflict between SMF and phpBB. the conversion is like a snapshot from your phpBB, you can test SMF and, if you like it, convert your phpBB again after a few days. the converter doesn't change any data from your phpBB.

Ok TE, thank you.. and sorry for the double post. 


To test it, is possible how..?

For example, if i type to browser:
Code: [Select]
http://myforumgr.com\www\SMF_forum_files or index.php

You think is the right way, or i have to change some other settings..?

is this the path to SMF? http://myforumgr.com/www/SMF_forum_files/
then place convert.php and phpbb3_to_smf.sql in that folder and run: http://myforumgr.com/www/SMF_forum_files/convert.php

Yes,  i read about, and i was do it successful in offline demo sites ( WAMPserver, phpBB 3 , SMF 1.1.8 ).

I mean when i convert it, and go to test if the login's work, if the convert was successful..etc..

And i must to tern the SMF before the convert from html => utf=8, also add the phpBB3_Login_Fix.tgz mod , right?

I read about LogInOut.php i have use it also..?

you can reset your passwort with the "forgotten password" link from SMF.
Another solution with phpMyAdmin:
I accidentally deleted my admin account, what do I do?

For the passwords. Check the first post from this topic, you must edit the Sources/LogInOut.php or install the phpBB3_login_fix.tgz via Package Manager
