Hi,

I have a phpbb-based website that I'm eager to move to Java. I wonder if it's possible to port it to JForum?

Thanks
JG

Yes, it is possible to migrate your phpbb database to jforum. I have done a little program to make this task. You can take a look at http://jforum-tools.dev.java.net. If you know how to access a CVS repository, the files are there.

I"ll make a little Swing program to make easier to use the convertion program.

Hello Rafael,

I love jforum, and love the idea of the phpbb2 to jforum export tool. However, when I downloaded the phpbb2jforum-1.0.zip tool, I did not find any of the Unix/Linux shell script files (ie phpbb2jforum.sh) Is there an updated version of the tool that includes these? I have tried to execute the script manually but to no avail.

Thanks,
Arthur.

It appears to be a class path problem, but as I am not versed in the way java works, I am at a loss. When I run


I get Failed to load Main-Class manifest attribute from mysql-connector-java-3.1.2-alpha-bin.jar. When I run java with the -cp option, it just pukes all over my console :P

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Art

There is no Main class in mysql-connector-java-3.1.2-alpha-bin.jar, That's all

and from your previous post

you have to check permissions or just do an chmod 777 mysql-connector-java-3.1.2-alpha-bin.jar

I tried chmoding mysql-connector-java-3.1.2-alpha-bin.jar, but I still get an error... Does anyone have the bash script for executing it? I am on CentOS4 w/ Java 1.4.2

Thx,
Art

I still havent had any luck with this tool. I cannot get it to execute. Is there a manual set of SQL queries that can be run on the DB? I would love to get the posts imported (and I wish I had gone with JForum in the first place...)

Thanks,
Art.

Ok, so I have ran most of the SQL queries that are in:

phpbb2jforum/bin/phpbb2jforum/mysql_queries.sql

But I am still missing some things (like the queris that need input from the java program.

Thanks in advance to anybody who can shed some light.

Thanks,
Art.

Maybe a conflict between 'bin' command and bin set in 'java -cp bin;....."
Try to set full pathname for bin and lib in your classpath .e.g :


or rename bin directory and change it accordingly in your command line
