XF 1.1 Import from IPB. Redirection problem

I´m migrating Forumshawaii.com to IPB.
My old ipb forum was on forumshawaii.com and the new xf forum is on forumshawaii.com/community

The problem is that I don´t understand the instructions very well on http://xenforo.com/community/resources/redirection-scripts-for-invision-power-board-3-1-x-3-2-x.265/.

Please tell me if this is correct:
  • I have to upload all the zip files (of the redirection script) con my public_html folder, because IPB was in public_html
  • I have to set on 301config.php the following line:
    $fileDir = '/home/forumsha/public_html/community';
    Are those all the steps?

I´ve already clicked on many links of my site on Google and I get this error:
Code:
Warning: require(/home/forumsha/public_html/library/XenForo/Autoloader.php) [function.require]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/forumsha/public_html/ips2xf.php on line 11
 
Fatal error: require() [function.require]: Failed opening required '/home/forumsha/public_html/library/XenForo/Autoloader.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/forumsha/public_html/ips2xf.php on line 11
Why? I´ve set on 301config.php the right path to my XF forum and the
Board URL is set as "http://www.forumshawaii.com/community"

That is all correct. I assume you got the .htaccess file uploaded as well. See this post:

http://xenforo.com/community/thread...on-power-board-3-1-x-3-2-x.27846/#post-384119

That PHP error looks like your $fileDir is incorrect, but you say you set it correct. Double check that path. And make sure the line itself is not commented (no // or # in front of it).
That´s the reason why I´m asking this

and yes, I´ve uploaded the Mike´s .htaccess file on public_html...I´ve all the files of the import on it:


The path is correct...

Oh wait. I was looking at the wrong line. But it's still commented. You added a new line within a block comment (/* */). That's no good either.

Well you are supposed to remove the // from this line:

Code:
//	$fileDir = '/home/username/www/forums';
You shouldn't remove the block comments because those are used for the description of that setting. It will cause an error if you remove those.
