For obvious reasons the primary focus will be on vB and then other paid forum solutions as the owners of those are more likely to purchase a licence for XF than forum owners running free software.
I don't really want to wait as long as I expect it will take to create an importer for phpBB so that leaves me with one other option: that is to upgrade from phpBB to vB and then to XF.
So my questions are:
- How easy is it to upgrade phpBB to vB? Has anyone here done it?
- Will it be a completely clean database after doing so or will some manual editing of the tables be required to get everything to work correctly; custom BBCodes, etc?
- What would a rough price be to purchase a (temporary) vB licence, bearing in mind I only want it for the purpose of upgrading to XF?
- Would doing a double upgrade from phpBB to vB to XF have any impact on the XF install? Presumably not.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
