View Full Version : Cant Import PP 5.5 users into VB3.6
October 17th, 2006, 09:13 PM
I installed Photopost before VBulletin.
Just got vbulletin.
Tried to use Impex, but got errors.
Vbulletin folks say BV3 does not support PP5.5
Is that true or have I done something wrong ?
See the results from VB3 Impex below:
... custom tables or incorrect prefix :
pp_perpage NOT found.
pp_user NOT found.
Valid found tables :

Please ask for support from vbulletin on there scripts. They have errors in there script there is no such thing as a user table it is users and there is no perpage table

I used the two scripts you have listed here to import my users to Vbulletin.
import.php & import.cnf
That seems to have worked.
While attempting to switch user registration to vbulletin I seem to have locked myself out of the admin panel.
I had set my gallery to closed.
now, even when i point my user tables back to the original PP database..i cant seem to get to the admin panel.
I can login to what was my admin ID but It keeps aying my gallery is down.

You have switched integrations and as such need to realign your usergroups.
Delete all entries under your usergroups table and as I noted in the other thread rerun install.php and integrate with vbulletin. It will not delete photos or anything else it will update all you settings you need to.

So to be clear.
I should delete all entries from my current PhotoPost Groups table.
Then, rerun photopost install.
I am also assuming that I should enusure that my config_inc.php has user tables mapped to the recently imported VB3 tables.
Question, when i map enter my imported VB3 tables as the user table in config_inc.php, photopost tells me "Database not properly setup" cant access the setting stable. Should I expect to see that bfore I run install.php ?

Run the install script and remap things you dont need to do it before hand. Just make sure to answer everything correctly database info vblicense cookie prefix make sure to select external integration with vb3

well..I thought it was working properly. then i discovered issues with missing photos. Then I realized the issue might be that I had been using the option to store my source images in a different directory. The instructions didnt account for this scenario. I went ahead and changed the souce data directory, then ...I lost the thumbnails. I ran scan db to rebuild thumbnails and everything disappeared from the database. Right now I have a restore of my pre-integrated photopost db, and my directory with the original files.
I tried re-installing and I could not get the thumbnails rebuilt, meanwhile.. it left the ADMIN function open to the world. I've deleted the entire photopost directory for security reasons. What should I do now ...how do I fix this mess ???

You dont see to install a pre integrated database just restore the photos table and run the required upgrades leave your integration alone. Your paths are not right which caused your issue so make sure your paths urls in global options and storage options are correct.
