Been reading up on here since this place began now and it seems that nobody as of yet has done a conversion from IBP over to VBulletin. Now I'm not a php coder of any description, I am actually a .NET developer. However I do have a copy of invision with a large community (therefore access to a big database to convert) and I write sql to a relativly high level (usually sql server, but hell its sql). So I have a few questions for people as I wanna help this place in any way I can and this is one of the few places I feel I probably could do so immediately.
- Persumably its just moving the data from one database to the other in the correct places. The theory is that simple yes?
- Whats the score with passwords. If I was to move them all over would I simple move the data over as it is? I believe there is salt and therefore what to I need to bare in mind with this?
- Lastly, if I am prepared to do all the data work is anyone prepared to work with me to get this into a usable conversion tool? As I said I do not write php (know the very very very basics) and pretty sure people are not just wanna use sql statements I provide, although I will provide them if people want them.
