XF 1.2 Importing from MyBB

Hi,

I just bought the license, and I am really looking forward to moving from MyBB to XF! I am uploading the XF files to my server as I write this.

Couple of questions;
There is an integrated MyBB->XF converter?
Do I follow these steps http://xenforo.com/help/installation/ when I want to convert from MyBB, or do I have to do something else?

Thanks!

Thanks.

Ran into a problem when I try to import:

Error
The attachments directory could not be found.

I have installed Mybb at mydomain.com, and XF at mydomain.com/forum. I have double checked that "uploads" is the correct attachments path (url mydomain.com/uploads). Any suggestions?

Sorry, I was busy writing some code.

What was the solution in the end for anyone else who might encounter the same problem?

I have a really noob question:
I have installed XF at mydomain.com/forum/
My MyBB is installed at mydomain.com
What is the easiest way to remove MyBB and make XF the index page when someone enters mydomain.com?

Btw, the MyBB importer worked very well. Only problem is that the [attachment] tags dont work properly.

Why not create an /archive directory, move the MyBB forum to it and move the XenForo installation to the root?

Ok, so I can just drag and drop the whole xenforo installation in my FTP-client and it will work? I dont have to change anything in settings etc.?

Works like a charm now. From coming from a free forum software to this (first time I have bought a license) I have to say the support is way better then I expected. Thank you! :)
