Hey all. Great Java-based forum. I was running my site Talk-Politics.com using phpBB until last week when the hackers attempted to crash my server with a PHP hack.... That was it for me-- started looking into Java forums and happily came across JForum. I am really looking forward to helping develop this!

Thanks for your awasome good feedback, Mike. I don't know if you are aware, but I also provide a tool to migrate the phpbb tables to jforum. Take a look at http://www.jforum.net/confluence/display/migration.

I plan to release JForum 2.1 "soon" ( "soon" as you can expect for any open source project ehehe ), which many fixes and improvements over 2.0.2 ( which runs fine, of course ).

Hope to talk to you more times.

Hello. I've been a long time user of phpBB2 and I am new to JForum. I am desperately trying to migrate my phpBB database to JForum. When I run the migration tool, I get the following...

Cleaning tables...
Cleaning query.clean.categories
Cleaning query.clean.forums
Cleaning query.clean.posts
Cleaning query.clean.privmsgs
Cleaning query.clean.ranks
Cleaning query.clean.search.wordmatch
Cleaning query.clean.search.words
Cleaning query.clean.topics
Cleaning query.clean.topicswatch
Cleaning query.clean.users
Cleaning query.clean.words
Cleaning query.clean.posts.text
Cleaning query.clean.privmsgs.text
Tables cleaned...
Importing users...
java.lang.NullPointerException
at net.jforum.tools.phpbb2jforum.Main.applyRegexToPostText(Main.java:183)
at net.jforum.tools.phpbb2jforum.Main.importUsers(Main.java:164)
at net.jforum.tools.phpbb2jforum.Main.runForrestRun(Main.java:62)
at net.jforum.tools.phpbb2jforum.Main.main(Main.java:277)


I know this isn't much but is there something that I did wrong? Both my phpbb and jforum tables are in the same MySQL database called 'forums'.
