Hi
I am facing problem in converting from phpBB 2 forum to phpBB 3. Following the given instructions of phpBB I installed phpBB3 in a separate directory. Then i ran the conversion script of phpBB3. Everything was fine, till the actual conversion button appeared.
After clicking "Convert", it takes some time waiting (I guess around 30second) for the site and then a white page appears.
According to phpBB, it is because

Quote:

Please note that this conversion process may take quite some time and depending on your hosting provider this may result in it failing (due to web server or other timeout issues). If this is the case you should ask your provider if they are willing to allow the convert script to temporarily exceed their limits


So, I guess i need to request frihost for this.



I thought it was an issue with frihost so i posted there. But I think it may also be something related with php or MySQL since thats the forum & database are using.



P.S. I wish i could had some means to create a soft link to that topic here.

Have you made sure that all of the phpBB files are uploaded? What you can do to check is just dump everything on the server and go "skip for existing files" and it'll upload anything that you or the FTP client has missed. Does happen sometimes. I take it everything was "available" on the checklist thing?

It could be a number of things... I've spent probably about a 100 hours over the years messing around with phpBB problems.

(I take it you are using 3.0.2?)


EDIT:
I presume you've tried the official phpBB community? They usually sort stuff out pretty quick.

Does this help?

Well, yes that surely helped. I had seen something similar while searching on phpbb.com and yes online conversion option is still available. But I am on a limited bandwidth plan on my isp so i didnt wanted to download the whole database. But, i guess that might be what i would need to do.

Thanks for your reply and helping me out.
