Archived ⇒ Double database site >>> Dragonfly 9.1.2.1


I run a music collaboration site with two seperate parts. The general members use a phpBB 2.0.22 forum.
The profesional members use a GPLdate community script. (yes I adapted a dating script into a professional musician site - but I didn't know about CPG-CMS!!).

Anyway, I have installed DF on one of my other sites and it is fantastic! I am seriously considering converting my music collaboration site to DF.

So, to address one issue at a time, how would I import my phpBB users to become full site members on DF.

I have read many forum posts on this issue and it seems that I need a converter designed specifically for my versions of phpBB and DF.

I am wondering if there is an alternate route such going from phpbb>>postnuke>>dragonfly

Sorry if I am asking stupid questions, but I have been looking at alien code allday Smile

The past route which seems to have worked best for people is
phpBB » phpnuke » DF 9.0.6.1 » upgrade DF 9.1.2.1

There is also a phpBB converter in this forum, but some people have had issues with it.

One other question.
People are talking about testing this on localhost and then moving it onto their servers. What exactly does this involve?

It means setting up a server on your PC, either linux-based or using one of the WAMP (windows, apache, mysql, php) systems available.

A forum or Google search for WAMP, XAMP or EasyPHP should provide you with further info. Such a system is usually referred to as local or localhost.

For a quick test you can get wamp which will install Apache, PHP and MySQL and phpMyAdmin. Excellent for quick testing sites.
