XF 1.5 Merging MyBB database with an active Xenforo forum


Active member
Someone I know has an old MyBB database ( of a domain which runs Xenforo now ) which he want to merge with an active Xenforo installation. How can it be done ?

Essentially you just navigate to admin.php?import/, select the MyBB importer, enter the configuration data for the MyBB installation and click through the steps.

Both installations (or databases and files) will need to be on the same server.

Take a backup of the XF installation before proceeding - should you need to remove the data to try again, you will need to restore from a backup.
