XF 2.2 PhpBB3 migration to Xenforo (same host)


New member
I need to migrate PhpBB3 to Xenforo (at same host). Can i install Xenforo @same location with phpbb (\public_html\forum) and import from there? Should i delete all Phpbb files before? Do i need \files or something else?

Install XF in a subdirectory.

Import from phpBB.

Archive the phpBB forum.

Move XF to the final directory and update the Board URL.
If you're going to need to do test and final imports, make sure you read this.

The paths in the importer are the phpbb file paths.

The XF directories already exist and the importer will copy files from phpBB to XF.
