I want to switch from IPB to Xenforo, is this possible without loosing my posts, threads,..?
Yes, there is a built in importer for IPB 4.x.
See the pre-sales FAQ in my signature for what is imported.
is it difficult to import it or is it automatic?
I want put xenforo in the same path like IPB, should I do this after I import it?
It's fairly straightforward - most customers feel comfortable doing it themselves.
You would install XF in a temporary directory, perform the import, then move/archive IPB and move XF.
It's explained in more detail here: https://xenforo.com/community/threads/importing-guidelines.25325/
Are there some features like for gameserver community like Steam Login, Steam Profile, GAmeserverlist,...?
Features such as that would be provided via third party add-ons, if they exist.
Should I take a clean database or can I install it on the same database like IPB?
XF must be installed in its own database.
I see that you are licensed now (welcome to XF) so it would be better to post any further questions in the customer forums, as support typically won't be provided in the pre-sales forum.
Thank you, I think its working all fine now.
