Importer error

edited June 2011 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
While trying to import my phpbb database to Vanilla, I load the vanilla2export.php file as usual via my website, but all I get is the following text:

usage: php parm1=value ... type: The type of forum being exported (vanilla1, vanilla2, vbulletin, phpbb2, phpbb3, bbPress, SimplePress, SMF). prefix: The database table prefix. dbhost: The database host. dbname: The database name. dbuser: The database user. dbpass: The database password. savefile: Whether or not to save the file.

Any ideas?

    Hmm, it looks like your web server thinks your are in command line
    mode. Can you tell me what web server you are on? I'd like to be able
    to fix this.

    In the meantime, search for the following lines and comment them out
    or delete them:

    if (isset($argc)) {
    define('CONSOLE', 1);
