    Not when importing forums, just PMs.

    I haven't got that far yet.
    I wonder has anyone imported their v3.8 board yet?
    Wonder if it's a mod/hack that is causing the problem.

    I would doubt that steven since it is working on the database independent of your vbulletin instance. I dont think it will even go anywhere near the plugin tables

    Same problem here. I think it's related to special characters.

    Possibly adding something like
    Code:
    $pmText['touserarray'] = $this->_convertToUtf8($pmText['touserarray']);
    might help. Just guessing here though as I cannot test this right now as I just went ahead with importing threads and posts and this step is not finished yet.

    P.S. you might want to check XenForo AdminCP -> Tools -> Server Error Log for details. What I posted above is related to the error on line 1058 while importing PMs: library/XenForo/Importer/vBulletin.php(1058)

    I have nothing in the server log. I'm going to import from a backup rather than my live database.

    Added: My db is 700mb.

    Help!!!

    I need to know what exact post mine is failing on but cant seem to get any more data from debug. If I could figure that out and I can tell you the character or string it is failing on more accuratly.

    Does anyone know how to get a little more output such as the sql command or the postid it is working on?

    Did a test import from VB 3.8.6, didn't get that error message, all seemed to work okay.

    The code I've posted above doesn't seem to make a difference. It errors out once there is a special character like German umlauts öäü in the username within touserarray. Not sure if our vBulletin source database being in utf8_general_ci is another important detail?

    WHOA!
    Last night I tried to install my forum names and the page was redirected to an error page.
    Today I viewed my forum and the forums were there!
