There would likely be a post-migration requirement to access the IPB site/data/features to pull some of it over to XF add-ons e.g.; blogs, gallery images, file downloads, etc.
Anyone done this or know whether it would be possible?
The only alternative I can think of is to install XF under "/forums" and move it back to root once the IPB data had been copied over and the IPB software removed; but I expect that would screw up SEO/listings as the paths would all be changed twice in a short time period?
Any advice or thoughts appreciated.
