I already converted complicated vb to xf forums with merger of the forums, redirects etc. Works perfectly.
Now I tried my third XF licence. This time a boring import of one vb forum into one xf forum. Nothing special.
Import went fine. No problems. I also made a logfile at the end just in case. But also kept the IDs in the import, because it is only one vb forum, which shall be imported in this fresh xf installation.
But surprisingly this "easy" conversion gives me headaches with the redirects. I just do not get it to work properly.
The vb 3.8x installation is in
The xf installation is on the same domainname in a subdirectory (not subdomain)
Now I want to have all redirects in place so that all internal and external links (also Google links) redirect in the right posting.
Also the URL with
mydomainname1/forum/index.php shall work and guide to the xf installation.
I copied the 301 files in the forum folder etc. But somehow I am too stupid to make it work.
Or shall I rather move the xf installation in the forum directory?
Anyhow. Can someone please post a link to a step by step guide? I saw the one with the individual log files, but this seems not to be enough. It seems that the htaccess files have to be different.
