    Dear friends, I am interested in buy a Xenforo licence, but my problem is that I have a forum mybb 1.6.11
    I can export all data of my forum to a new xenforo forum with no problems? I can export all users, passwords, avatars, attachments, etc. to a Xenforo forum?

    Yes, you can import MyBB data to XenForo.
    Things you can import:
    • User Groups
    • User Fields
    • Users
    • Avatars
    • Private Messages
    • Forums
    • Moderators
    • Threads
    • Polls
    • Attachments

    Just a heads up, if you plan to move to another system (XF in this case) stick with 1.6 until you do so. 1.8 is very new so might not be supported by official migration tools.

    Thanks, but the users can access to the Xenforo forum with same Mybb passwords or they need to create new passwords?

    As far as I know, your users don't have to change their passwords :)

    I converted my Linux site from MyBB 1.6.x series over to XenForo... and it all came across fine.

    I buy the license now :)
    I have set the license to mysite.com
    I need to install Xenforo in mysite.com/? I have my current mybb forum in mysite.com (main directory)
