    Is it possible to convert vBulletin forum to PHPbb? If yes, any useful links please...

    P.S. VBulletin version 3.5.4

    I'm not sure since I haven't done it, but i am about 90% sure you can.

    just save your database and reupload it after you install vBulletin

    You misunderstood... They want to go from vBulletin to phpBB, not the other way around...

    jkm - I did some searching on phpBB's site and couldn't find anything about converting from vB 3.5.x to phpBB. The only converter on their downloads page is for 2.x, and the only other one I could find in the community was for vB 3.0.x, so I'm guessing it's not currently possible. Your best bet would be to ask on the phpBB forums though as they might know about one that I can't find.

    well someone on phpbb.com has done it

    3.6.0 but i believe there are only slight database structure differences between 3.6.0 and 3.6.4
