Import VBulletin

#1 | Posted: 27 Apr 2007 10:18 

I wonder if there is any script to import a vbulletin to minibb. I currently run VB and would be very interested to switch to minibb because VB is very overloaded and I believe that minibb will cause less server stress if the forum becomes more popular.

If there is any importer or if importing services are available, please let me know :)

Unfortunatelly, because other party developers often change database structure releasing new versions, we are unable to follow them and release such converter / importer for free.

However it is possible to convert the database for a fee. The fee depends on what exactly data you need to import from VB. It will take time to compare the databases and probably program a special script which takes data from one database to another.

In other words, everything depends on how much you are ready to invest ;-)

As I wrote, if you're ready to pay for out work regarding this, you're welcome.

We ourselves are too busy with miniBB-project only. Tasks regarding other boards are considered to be custom for us.
