Migration from mm_forum (Typo3)

edited November 2010 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
Is there anybody which have a clue what have to do? Or: if there is a documentation of the data structure of the Vanilla-DB to solve that?

Thank you in advance

    My first suggestion would be to look at a 2-step port, where you go to some format that DOES support mm_forum imports and that we support imports from (maybe phpBB?), and then again from that format to Vanilla 2 using our porter.

    Hi Lincoln,
    sounds a little bit strange for me... so if find a way into phpBB I'm not sure why I should walk the way more than as into phpBB?
    But this discussion thread is senseless if got no answer for the ProxyConnect-move-to-another-server-Bug (or what ever it it)... Otherwise I have to switch totally to phpBB... I know: sounds sadly...

    do you habe a clou of PHP and want to take some effort on your own?

    The exporter tool (to be found here: has export options for about five different forum systems.
    If you study the code, you will finde out, how the structure of the forums is taken to do the export and by knowing the structure of mm_forum you might be able to put up an mm_forum Class to export this forum.

    The import would then work like in this instruction:

    By checking the code of the exporter I guess, that work could be done in two or three hours.
    - understanding the structure of Vanilla 2
    - understanding how the exporter work (important are only the exporter tools for the different forum systems)
    - building an exporter class for mm_forum on example of the five other systems, therefore you will need knowledge of SQL, I guess

    THX!... yes PHP isn't a problem... this is in principal what I'm looking for .. thank you for the links!
    But like I wrote before: this discussion thread will be senseless for me if I got no answer for the ProxyConnect-move-to-another-server-Bug (or what ever it is)...
    Please don't misunderstand this: You are absolutely not in charge of it. But I found no solution, nor a difference in the config to solve this..
