XF 1.2 Best process to move site to this


Active member
Hi, so i am planning to transfer my site currently running on ipb to xf.

I am wondering what you would suggest is the best process being that my forum is fairly active and obviously the ipb i would be importing from is on the main domain that i will be wanting to install xf.

Should i move my current forum to a folder on the main domain first? what would you suggest is the best process?
