    Hi, I have a hosted forum with websitetoolbox and I want to convert this to XenForo (I will purchase license), can I do that? if yes then I will buy license.

    You would need to obtain a copy of the database and server files and then do a double import via a supported software.

    Hello Brogan can you please suggest me any software that will do?

    The pre sales FAQ in my signature lists the supported software and importers.

    You would have to convert to one of those.

    I'm not aware of any (and I did some google power search) that will import it.
    From what I saw, you can pay them a fee and they will then give you your DB in SQL format, then you will need to engage someone to write a custom converter for you for importation of the DB from your old forum. That's one of the hazards of using some of those type of forum services unluckily.

    CSV export is free. SQL export is $49.

    At least it beats ProBoards and other hosted forums whose response to backup requests is a middle finger.

    gConverter might be able to do it
