So iv'e bought Invision power board and i want to convert all my forum posts and members off my old board (phpBB) to my new installed board which is IPB.

I fill in the details as i have installed the converters and i don't fill in the SQL prefix, because honestly, i don't know what one is.

so i get thrown allot of errors in this format :

If you have access to PhpMyAdmin, you can look at your phpBB3 database and see what the prefix is. The prefix is the sequence before the table name. In your example it's phpbb, which is the default for phpBB3, but not necessarily for all phpBB3 systems. Pull up your DB and take a look.

It should also be in your config.php file in your phpBB installation folder
