I am moving on the same server if this makes a difference.
When you get to the configure Importer section it asks for the Attachments Directory.
I put in the full path that I thought it was to my images which is
It said - The attachments directory could not be found. ???
I contacted my hosts and they suggested removing the "forumattachments" section as this seemed to make it work ?? So the new path was -
I did this and the importer started.
All the while this seemed wrong to me as it was now just looking in the root and wouldn't know which folder the images were in.
Posts etc. went in fine - I did have an issue with moderators as it threw a duplication error ?? this is OK I can add mods back in later.
The problem was when we got to images, bearing in mind it took 4 hours to move posts etc. When it got to images it rushed through in 5 mins and then reported "No Images Moved" or something to that effect, I couldn't read properly due to the tears in my eyes
My images are in a folder called "forumattachments" on the root of the domain ??
Is it easier to go to my VB forum and move the images into the DB ?
My questions are -
1. Why is the path to my images folder not recognised ?
2. What is the correct path to my images folder ? - I have tried almost every permutation of that path I posted earlier.
3. The most important - Do I have to start a fresh or can I re-run the attachments importer to try and move the images over ?
