vbulletin albums is not a gallery. We do not advertise that we support conversion of vbulletin albums.
Like I said all you can do is try it. Now if your getting a blank page maybe you have a php error as this is older it might be failing on newer php versions you can turn on display_errors to on and see if it will display an error.
Thank you for your help but I've run out of time I will have to work on this some other time. I spent a week working on updating the forum from vb3.7.4 to 4.1 .10, I think I have all the bugs worked out for a fairly smooth upgrade and then I realized I didn't know how I was going to move the photos, it's something I'll have to tackle when I have more time.
If your having trouble running the importer on your home computer try actually install PhotoPost Pro on your live site and doing an import. The importer does not touch or delete any vb albums content and like I said my only thought if there is a conflict with some newer PHP is maybe what I posted above might help if that is your case. Can not say for sure just something for you to try.
You are bound to have alot more issues using the pre-configured package things most people install on there home computer to support PHP and Mysql. Those things are alot more strict that the PHP running on webhosts.
Joe I do not provide support for this old beta importer as I posted already sorry. Beta software in general does not have support and your trying to install next on a vb version that was released after this thing was created.
I can offer comments though.
Now the reason you have the issue posted above is your $albid variable is 0. My suggestion would be to check your albumpicture table in vb and see what the albumid is. Apparently based on your error you have some entries with an albumid of 0. Maybe entries that where orphaned from deleted users? I can not say. I would personally delete any entries where albumid is 0.
Success, what I ended up doing was moving all the photos/albums from file storage into the database and then making a new attachment-folder for them and transfer them out of the database into a file. After that they import without any problem. I will agree with you that there was an orphaned photos from deleted users, I don't believe vBulletin deletes the albums when a account is deleted.
I know you do not provide support for this importer. I do want to thank you for your help with figuring out why it wasn't working for me.
