    I am just about to purchase xenforo license but I just need confirmation about converting from IPB to Xenforo .

    Is there an official converter from IPB 3.2 to Xenforo ? If yes , is there any documentation ? I really do not want to risk anything my board has 350.000 posts and 9.000 members.

    XenForo has the ability to import data from other forum software, a process also known as converting. Version 1.1 of XenForo supports the following:
    • vBulletin 3.6, 3.7, and 3.8.
    • Invision Power Board 3.1 and 3.2.
    • phpBB 3.0.

    Sorry but one more question , will i be first installing the xenforo and then import the database from admin panel ? or will it ask me to import data through installation ?

    Install XenForo first then do the import via the ACP.

    I can only assume you aren't logging in with the email address you have registered with.

    Bear in mind the customer account section is separate from the forum.
