    Hi everyone, I have a small community of soccer at MYBB and I would like to know if there is a way to transfer my complete forum from mybb to xenforo and if there is a way, what are steps that I would need to follow?

    by the way, my first language is Spanish and sorry if I made any mistakes writing in English..

    The current version (1.2.1) has a myBB importer built in if I'm not mistaken. Basically you would create an empty DB, install xenForo and then run the import from your old myBB setup. The DB's need to be on the same server.

    Ok, my forum is version 1.6.10 and checking the importer that you mention, it says that it's only for MyBB 1.6 and it says in beta testing, so, can I still do it ?

    Do a search with the specifications of mybb|import and you should be able to find out for sure if nobody from support or the mod's respond. @Jake Bunce will probably know for sure.

    The official MyBB importer will work for you. For the purpose of an import, MyBB 1.6 is the same as MyBB 1.6.10.

    Oh ok, but to be honest, I've never done this before, how difficult would it be to do that importer ? I realy I don't want to mess this up and lose my data from my old forum.

    The import process is simple. Install XenForo. Login to the Admin CP and run the import. It is all inside of the Admin CP.

    You don't need to worry about your source data. The import is read-only from source.

    Ok, so I install Xenforo in my server and after I go to Admin CP and I will do what you wrote. I have another question, will this importer transfer all my passwords, avatars, images and attahments??
