XF 1.5 VB4 -> XF Import attachment file path format

#1
Hi guys

Doing a test import of a rather large forum from vB4 to XF using the importing tool. It is connecting to the database fine, but when I try and add the attachments folder if it's saying it can't be found. I can see why this might be the case, but I am wondering what is the formatting for this, also I am working from a remote site/different server as well.

Thanks!

Try entering the absolute path if you aren't sure of the relative path.

Navigate to /admin.php?tools/phpinfo and search for DOCUMENT_ROOT to get the absolute path of your XenForo installation.
From there you can determine the absolute path for your other installation.
