From phpBB to Xenforo

Not open for further replies.
Hello everyone,

I currently run a forum phpbb, but I would like to switch to phpbb.
I opened a demo and try it to transfer my content from the phpbb installation to the Xenforo demo. Only I get the following error message:
The source database connection details are not correct: Access denied for user 'superh1q_forum' @ 'localhost' (using password: YES)

The demo site is on our own servers and therefore is unlikely to have access to your database.

The demo is not intended to be imported into so it's unlikely you'll be able to perform the import.

You should use the demo to familiarise yourself with the basics of the software and if it meets your requirements then once you purchase if you need any support with getting the import to work you can submit a ticket.
Okay, thanks!

I have another question.
I would like information such as recording date, post count, location, ... even in topics like want to display here along the left side (you do not see that now)
Is that possible? Where can I enable it?

If you require support, you will need to associate your forum user name with your license and post in the relevant forum.
