phpbb3 import script - users cannot login - password error

(Ankh2054) #1

Hi all,

I’ve successfully imported my old phphbb3 site, I can see and browse topics.

Problem I’m having is that users cannot login using their old passwords. Has anyone ever had this issue or any tips for something I can try?

I cannot use forget password as not everyone would still be configured on their old email address.

For security reason, we can’t import passwords. All your users will have to reset their password.

Handling user passwords when importing from another forum software?
