Importing / migrating from phpBB3

I had this same error. I believe it happens when one gets a stale shared/standalone/import/mysql/imported file. Deleting that file cleared the error.

Migrating passwords apparently didn’t work for me.

I set passwords: true in shared/standalone/import/settings.yml before importing from a phpbb 3.0 dump. I have this in containers/app.yml

    - exec:
        cd: $home/plugins
          - git clone
          - git clone

and I ran ./launcher rebuild app after the import. The import seems to have worked entirely, except that I cannot log in with my password from phpbb. There weren’t any relevant error messages that I spotted from the import, and the password is 20 characters long, so should clear the minimum length limit.

What should I be looking for to troubleshoot this?

A bit more information: I see import_pass entries in the user_custom_fields table of the database that match password hashes that were in the phpbb database, so that part seems to have worked?

Edit: Oh ho, I figured out what happened. I had completely forgotten that we had switched to LDAP authentication for phpbb… The passwords I imported were totally fine, just 15 years old! So now I need to knock something together to extract the password hashes from LDAP instead… :slight_smile:
