XF 2.2 Which directory's are needed for import from IPB?

Oke here's the issue. I want to convert my forums from IPB to Xenforo.
IPB is in the public_html directory and I want my Xenforo there too.

Now I've already done a test run in a subdirectory and have seen that you have to either point to the root directory -or- the uploads directory of IPB.

So I thought to remove everything from IPB, except for the database and the /uploads directory (and subdirs).
Then install Xenforo in the public_html and start the import and afterwards remove the /uploads directory.

Would that be enough to do the import? Or does the importer also needs some other directory's of IPB present?
 
Solution
All the XF importers require are the database and any attachment or avatar files - so whichever directories those are stored in.

What you are proposing will work as long as XF can read the database and file related directories.
