XF 1.1 vB Import Issues

    I am having issues getting past the 1st step in importing our board with the returned error each time of - "The table prefix or database name is not correct."

    I know the DB name & user are correct but seems I'm stuck at the Table Prefix & Force Character Set.

    Tabe Prefix = $config['Database']['tableprefix'] = '';

    Force Character Set = $config['Mysqli']['charset'] = 'utf8';

    That's what I gleaned from the config.php.

    is that right or have I entered the wrong details?

    Thank you :)

    You have entered the wrong details.

    You need to enter the database name and prefix of your existing vB database.
    You can check that in cPanel/phpMyAdmin.

    Thank you brogan and understand a little of your reply all except for the prefix as checked cPanel and it showed no prefix that I was aware of unless I mis read it.

    I'm not familiar with vB as I have never used it, but it may be the case that there is no prefix so just leave it blank.
