Group permissions help (import from phpbb did not convert permissions)
Posted 05 May 2012 - 09:45 AM
Installed Converters and converted my database from phpbb 3
When it was all said and done, Only the "Administrator group" from the previous board were transferred into the correct group (Administrators).
All the other 30+ groups were converted, however none of their permissions were set correctly. Every single group was converted as if it was a "new" group. Which in a sense can be understandable as the groups names are not IP.Board "default" groups, however it seams that's exactly what IP.Board did. It created a new group, called it the group name that was imported, but it did not copy that groups permissions and it gave it "default" group permissions, meaning everything was set to "No".
Do I manually have to go in and edit all 30+ groups and set their permissions? I was under the impression that the conversion would copy over the correct permissions as well.

As far as I'm aware, it should attempt to best match the permissions up, although a manual check / tweak may be needed. Was there nothing left for you to do with the Convertor app then ?
I'd have to suggest a ticket so a technician can have a look it might be a bug with the convertor although that seems unlikely. Don't forget to say what 3.x version of phpbb you converted from.
