    PunBB > vBulletin

    Alright, so I got my own, small, Martial Art forum.

    It is currently running on PunBB.
    After a few months, I have decided to go over to vBulletin (Please note that there was nothing wrong with PunBB)

    I've bought a license and everything, but how would I go about transferring all users and posts from PunBB to vBulletin?

    Is there some sort of converter? (If it is on any of the official vBulletin sites, I'm afraid I cannot get it since I am awaiting my login details from the guy I bought the license off)

    If not, is there any way of me doing it myself? (As long as it's reasonably simple. I guess I don't mind if it's long or boring)
    Saying this, is anyone willing to do it for me at a fee?

    Thank you for any comments in advanced

    Have you looked on the vBulletin site, they usually provide ready made converters, if you can't see it check the user forums, someone will be able to point you in the right direction I'm sure.

    Thanks for your reply dude
    Nah, I don't think they have one for PunBB either.

    (PunBB shouldn't be that hard to configure)


    Anyone else?
    Thanks again man,

    There is converter from punbb to vb. It is easy to use and you get it when you buy vbulletin. I converted couple of punbb databases to vb and it always worked good. Don't worry it exists and it works !
