View Full Version : How to change integration to vBulletin
February 24th, 2007, 01:43 PM
We just installed new vbulletin forums from ubbthreads. Now I need to change photopost. What all do I need to do?
It seems I need to change user registration system to vb3 but what should I change database table prefix to?
After that I see that I need to change vb3 integration to on under Edit Integration.

Follow the same steps basically but adjusting to the new integration

I tried switching off to everything in the config file, but it's still looking for vbulletin

Correct because you have not separated the two in the database settings and then you want to read this thread because your gallery will have no users. Easier for you to do a clean install

if I do that, what about my photos :?

Well your photos will not be owned by anyone if you dont write some custom script to move your users.
I beleive I have been very vocal on the steps one needs to do if they wish to switch an integration
You need to make sure whether you write a script etc that your users get to the new integration type if you except things to be right

oh boy, this is ugly.... can't we just have the old photos own by the new admin?

yes switching integrations can be ugly if you do not account for every variable
You could run a query on your database to set the userid and username to that of your admin
