This thread is an old imported thread from the former VB Advanced Gallery which as you now know as PP VBgallery. If you chose to use these scripts you do so with out any warranty from this site. Please try them at your own risk.
This script will import the images from your current Coppermine installation and convert them for use with vBadvanced Gallery.
How to use this script:
1). Back up your images and Coppermine database.
2). Download the file below and open it with a text editor. You will see a place where it is necessary to set the path to three different places (your Coppermine installation, your forums, and your vBa Gallery files directory). Change the paths accordingly.
3). Upload the file to your root directory, go to the file in your browser, and follow the instructions there.
4). Remove the file from your server once it has finished.
5). Enjoy vBadvanced Gallery.
Please note that at this time these import scripts have only been tested on a few installations. If you experience any problems please post here and we will be happy to help and make sure you get your files imported properly.

i tried to import 113 pages of images (about 1 1/2 hours!), but when i tried to import comments, i got this:
( /import_coppermine.php?do=replies )
Most servers can handle importing all of the replies at once, but you may have a small memory limit set, or just a lot of posts. If you haven't tried to run the script again then all of your images will still be there and if you'd like to submit a support ticket I can make some changes to get the replies imported and get things finished up.
