Converting database from old punbb forum to latest fluxbb

Hi,

I've finally found some time to upgrade a forum from a old punbb install to fluxbb, I've just did a new install and want to migrate the database first.

Does anyone know where I can find the resources to upgrade the database from punbb 1.2.14 to fluxbb 1.5?

Thanks!

Just follow the instructions on this page, it should all work for PunBB 1.2.x, too.

Thanks, looks like I have to update the 1.2.14 database to something later first :-)

I believe it should work anyway. But to be sure, you can upgrade to v1.2.24 first and then to 1.5.0.

If I am running PunBB 1.2.15, which Fluxbb version do I select in the upgrade dropdown list at the link above?

You should just overwrite all the files with the current version. There's no way a patch will work if you have lots of modifications installed.
