I was trying to use the vbulletin.rb script to import a vBulletin5 database, and I noticed that the table names referenced in the import script are not the same as the ones in the vB5 database.
For instance, the script queries a table called “posts”. There is no such table in the vBulletin5 database.
Also, the vB5 database has a tooon of tables in it. So I doubt it would be all that easy to slightly modify the import script to account for the different names or anything like that.
Is the import script for older versions of vBulletin only? It seems that vB5 is known to be quite different from previous versions, and I’m guessing the new table names are a part of that.
Actually, it doesn’t look like migrating vB5 to anything else is a very common practice at all. Google couldn’t find me many people who have done it successfully, apart from a few sketchy things claiming to offer paid migration services.
Can anyone who has successfully migrated a vBulletin forum to Discourse comment on this?
