User login problem after mybb DB conversion

Okay so I managed to successfully convert my mybb database and load into Discourse following this guide

Then after loading ember/cli and visiting localhsot:4200 I see that all the posts and users were loaded but when I try and login using my username and password associated with my mybb account it denies me access.

Incorrect username, email or password

I’m not exaclty sure why or how to proceed beyond this point.

Any suggestions would be most welcome :grinning:

I don’t believe passwords are migrated along with users (someone more familiar with migrations can hopefully chime in to confirm this). Are you able to log in by resetting your password by clicking “I forgot my password” on the login screen?


If it’s a development environment (and you said it was) then you can log in with http://localhost:4200/session/username/become

When you move to a real server, you’ll need to tell all of your users to do the forgot password procedure.

I double-checked the script and it does not import passwords.


Thank you all. And also thank you pfaffman for pointing the admin link out.

Cheers :slight_smile:
