Conversion IPB 3.1.4 to xenforo latest

Well this is proving slightly more taxing than originally thought :( I blame North Korean infiltration of the site ...

Anyways got this error

Either the specified path to your IP.Board installation does not exist, or it does not contain the 'uploads' folder that contains avatars and file attachments.
Which means I am entering the forum pathway wrong.

Am entering

http://www.movieheretic.com/forums/

Which is the correct path to the forums, where config_global and uploads hang out like JDs at a coffee shop.

Doing a test conversion to a local service :(

Try a full server path to ensure it's correct.

Visit admin.php?tools/phpinfo and search the page for "DOCUMENT_ROOT". That will reveal the full server path.

Okay did that and still not working, though the directory structure would assume the xenForo install is on the same server I guess. Do I need to add some "http" stuff prior to the directory structure?

Yes, it must be on the same server.
Thanks Jake, putting the db and forums on the same server as the xenForo install did the trick :)

Now all I have to do is do it in Production, merge in another site, and recontact the membership :D
