    There is a built in myBB 1.6 importer. The Pre-Sales FAQ in my signature shows you what is imported. Plugins will need custom imports.

    Importing is not generally supported using the online demo.

    When importing, ideally both database need to be on the same server.
    Then you just enter the source (MyBB) database details - you can get those from the config file of your existing MyBB installation.

    Once you purchase a license, all necessary support will be given.
