Topic: The easiest way to convert from phpbb to punbb.
At the present time I run phpBB, but I'd like to use punBB instead.
Now, the "problem" is that I don't have much experience in this area (php, databases etc) and knowing myself I can think of at least 10 ways I can screw something like this up. My host thankfully had a button in their control panel, "on" or "off" which installed everything pretty neatly for me.
I have downloaded "PunBB_Migration_Tool-1.4.0.zip", the "punbb-1.2.10.zip" and now I'm thinking: "what's the right approach for this? How can I do this relatively easy with as little screwups as possible?"
Things that make me nervous about switching:
I have 139 registered users and a lot that just browse the forum, I don't want them to notice anything else then "oh, he switched forums, nice".
I do not want them coming to the boards and see chaos and total destruction
I don't want any posts or topics MIA afterwards. There are at the moment 2945 'articles' in the forum, I want them to stay there.
There are a lot of images uploaded as attachments, I've read somewhere that while some mods for phpbb work on punbb, not all will, and this makes me hesitate a little about this.
The forum might be considered "small-time", but nevertheless it's existence does make a difference to my users, so I want this to be painless on them Can anyone tell me how I should do this or perhaps know of a guide of some sort? Can't seem to find one myself
Anyway, thanks a million in advance and have a nice day!
