    I imported my forum from vbulletin 3.7 Everything went well. I didn't have any problems.

    But one thing i don't remember is weather or not it archived my log. I don't remember this step.

    How can i see if it logged. Where do i check and when i find it do i have to put that log file in my directory?

    I used this


    Even tho i don't know if i archived it. I tried anyways.

    I put those files in my directroy and edited the 1 file

    // $fileDir = '/var/www/vhosts/mywebsite.com/public_html/mywebsite';

    // define('IMPORT_LOG_TABLE', 'xf_import_log');

    What about this? Do i put this to true or false

    define('INCLUDE_PAGE_LINKS', false);

    The import_log table name is usually one of these two. Try both:


    Or view your db tables using phpmyadmin to look for the table.

    You don't need to specify $fileDir if XF is in the same directory where vB was.

    INCLUDE_PAGE_LINKS refers to page links in thread URLs. Only enable this if XF is set to show the same number of posts per page as vB:

    Admin CP -> Home -> Options -> Messages

    I looked into my phpmyadmin and i found both

    I'm not sure if i had it in the same directory. At first i didn't.

    My old forum was at www.mywebsite.com

    i added installed a fresh copy of Xenforo under www.mywebsite.com/test

    I imported and customized it and then after it was ready. I deleted vbulletin and moved all the xenforo files from test folder to www.mywebsite.com

    I figured out the problem.

    I had to remove these 2 little stupid slashes // at the start and left of $fileDir

    // $fileDir = '/var/www/vhosts/mywebsite.com/public_html/mywebsite';

    And for me it was archived_import_log not xf_import_log

    define('IMPORT_LOG_TABLE', 'archived_import_log');

    So for future reference mine worked with
