    The path is relative.

    Try using ../phpBB3/images/avatars/upload

    (I see you got the account/license sorted ;))

    You can create a private node and explicitly allow access to user groups/users.

    Or you can change the node permissions for the Unregistered group.

    is it possible to skip importing the avatar and files? I'm having the same import errors

    Only if the importer lets you skip those steps. Some steps must be run in order because they depend on each other.

    Make sure you enter the correct path. I use a full server path myself.
