XF 1.5 XenForo_Importer_vBulletin4x->stepAttachments


Well-known member

I try to migrate a vB 4.2.3 to XenForo 1.5.7. Everything works fine until the import if the attachments starts. I get the following error

Server Error

Permissions were changed from 755 to 777 and back but nothing happens. What did I wrong?

Thanks for support

Did you recursively change the permissions for the internal_data directory?

You can typically do that using your FTP client by right clicking on the directory.
