Importing the old 1.3 board into the new 1.3 board, I get this errors...

  • The data directory could not be found.
  • The internal data directory could not be found.
I'm sure that the path is correct (pwd check).
Code:
> pwd
/home/myforum/public_html/data
What's wrong? o_O

Navigate to admin.php?tools/phpinfo and search for DOCUMENT_ROOT to get the absolute path of your XenForo installation.

Oh :) Thanks, this is the result

Code:
_SERVER["DOCUMENT_ROOT"]    /home/myforum/public_html
The path (/home/myforum/public_html/data) seems correct to me... o_O

You're importing data from an install in the root?

It could be a permission error as well. (If it can't be read, it's as if it doesn't exist.)

If you're sure the path is right (based on @Brogan's previous comment), then you need to look at the permission situation as well.

It may be down to the permissions of parent directories. If you don't have root, you won't be able to deal with it.

TBH, the easiest thing may be to simply copy the data over so they're all in the same home directory.
