  1. Upgrading from phpBB to vBulletin

    how easy is to upgrade phpbb to vb ?

  2. It's not really that hard. vBulletin's Impex system is quite good at importing phpBB forums.

    Pretty easy. I've done a few, including a couple with over a million posts. Sometimes there's coversion issues with something in the database but doesn't take much to fix.
