Converting from vb2 to vb3

Before converting from vBulletin 2 to their latest version, we highly suggest you upgrade your PhotoPost to at least version 4.7.

We have created the attached utility which will help you in setting up your PhotoPost for use with vBulletin 3

Before you begin, you will need a couple pieces of information, which will help to solve the most common issue with vBulletin 3.

Cookie settings:
PhotoPost allows for you to configure the cookie_domain, cookie_path and a cookie_prefix. Each of these three things must match your vB3 cookie variables so that the cookies can be shared between applications.

A common problem is for vb3 to be installed into a /forums directory while PhotoPost is installed in /gallery and the cookies cannot be shared. This is because vB is creating cookies in /forums and PhotoPost in /gallery and neither can access the others.

On PhotoPostDev.Com we use the PhotoPost config-inc.php settings:

$cookie_path = "/";
$cookie_domain = "";

and in the vB3 Admin Options under Cookies and HTTP Header Options:

Path to Save Cookies: /
Cookie Domain: <blank>

License Number:
vB3 saves your password using your License Number as a key for encryption. If your license number is incorrectly set, then your cookies will not be properly created.

To find your vB3 license number, look at the top of your index.php file for vB3. The fourth line will look like:

|| # vBulletin 3.0.0 Release Candidate 3 - Licence Number XXXXXXXX

The XXXXXXXX is your license number and should be entered in your config-inc.php as:

$vblicense = "XXXXXXXX";

Once you have this information, you may download the attached file and rename it to convertor.php

Upload this file to your PhotoPost directory, and run it in your web browser. You will be presented with options for the cookies and license number, so enter the information as outlined above.

After completing the fields, your PhotoPost database and config-inc.php file will be updated, and you should be good to go.

I had the Vbulletin forums updated on Saturday and now nobody can post to the existing Photopost. I have tried downloading convertor.txt and following the instructions but get the following message

?Welcome to the PhotoPost Pro Integration Convertor. The purpose of this utility is to allow you to change your PhotoPost from your current forum/CMS to a different forum/CMS.
Note: This utility will NOT modify user data nor image names
We have determined that your PhotoPost is currently configured to use*UNKNOWN. YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO USE THIS CONVERTOR?

I followed the instructions very carefully but I still have Photopost that can't be used and I can't get into the admin.

I have already paid for the latest version of Photopost Pro, Reviewpost and Photopost classifieds and an install service. Now I need the install fast!
