Archived ⇒ Switching from Ikonboard to Dragonfly


I currently run a few sites that use Ikonboard. I would like to change them over to Dragonfly to take advantage of the CMS. Is there a converter that will transfer all my members and all the threads?

Ikonboard is currently only a message board. I'm not a programmer by any means so I don't know what md5 is. I just want to be able to pull my members and their messages over into DF.

It's runs as a perl module under the cgi-bin directory. The entire contents of the install are in that folder. Says you can run on iis/unix/linux with mysql but primary mode of install is using perl not mysql. The whole thing looks like a forum based on cgi. All file extensions are cgi, html, pm, pl, cfg, and dat. Since it has mysql capability a convertor might be possible.

I do know that my install of Ikonboard is using MySQL if that helps.

I understand and thanks for any help you can give me now or in the future. The sites I have under Ikonboard are established so there's no hurry. I'd just rather have them all under DF for ease of administration.
