Move just users and passwords from VB to XenForo

#1
Hi,

I am new to XenForo and have several thousand users on forum that uses VB.

How would I take just usernames and passwords from the existing VB forum and place them into the new XenForo forum. The idea is to then let the users on the old forum know that they are already signed up on the new forum.

Thank you in advance for your ideas :)

Looks like it would work, except I get this error. I have copied and pasted the required information directly from my VB config file so I am quite sure it is correct:

The source database connection details are not correct: Access denied for user 'username-here'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

Are there sometimes other issues that need attention to get it to work?

That error simply indicates the connection details are incorrect, there is no other configuration required.

Instead of copying and pasting, try entering the details manually.
