DO NOT RUN THIS ON PHOTOPOST VERSIONS LOWER THAN 5.0!!!

Okay common place that alot of people switch there forums over to Vbulletin from other forums that we integrate without regards to the problem with userid's changing on import.

Now you still need to do the normal realigning of Photopost to interact with the new Vbulletin forum but this script will realign your userid's in Photopost so the photos and comments and albums belong to the proper users.

1. Upload to your server.

2. Call it in your browser and do through all 3 steps letting them all run

I may be a bit confused about the order of the imports. I tried doing the userid realign, before importing the galleries. It seemed to do nothing. It took me through the steps, but in no time and seemingly nothing happened. So, no it seems that I do the import first then reasign the userid? I thought that the script would ask me for the location of the data etc, but it did not, so now I am not sure what happend.
please let me know the order of operation so I can give it another try. And, if the old gallery is not working do you know how I can find out which version I have? I think it is at least 5.0, but I am not positive.

Yes you are confused as to the order as I previously posted in your original thread.

You would need to do your import first so you have content to realign.

question, which file or folder is this asking for:
Server Path to vbag Data Directory
photopost 8.4 has a directory named DATA, but the vbgallery I am importing from does not. The old vbgallery has all the files in a folder labeled FILES, but I am not sure what the vbag Data Directory is. the directories available in the old vbgallery are:
CLIENTSCRIPTS, FILES, IMAGES, USERS

Yes the vbgallery data directory where images are located is files ;)
