vBulletin Merge Tool for v2.2.x
Mod Version: 1.00, by JulianD (Member) JulianD is offline
Developer Last Online: Sep 2018 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 2.3.x Rating: (2 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 69
Released: 17 Nov 2002 Last Update: Never Downloads: 40
Not Supported Is in Beta Stage  

Well, I did this for a friend and I saw some request for this tool before, so here you got.

My code is based on the import scripts that you found on vbulletin.com.

What it does?
- Merge: users, forums, threads, posts, polls, PMs and attachments of two vBulletin databases.
- It allows to associate usernames with current vBulletin users, to prevent duplication

Both databases should be in the same server, and use the same password.

If there's a duplicated name in both databases, the script will postfix the username from the database you're merging with something like: [imported]. So you probably will find users that looks like username[imported] after the merge. To solve this problem of two usernames being one person, there's a tool in the script to merge users individually.

New version
- The database to merge can now have a different host/username/password. *
- Ability to auto merge users with the same username (to avoid 4000 users with the [imported] thing. ) *
- You can now skip the forum merging, and use the tool only to merge users.
- The poll bug seems to be fixed now. Post your feedback.


Installation:

Simply upload the attached file to /forum/importers/ and go to your Admin CP > BB Import Systems and choose vBulletin Merge Tool for v2.2.x.

Note that this script requires vBulletin 2.2.7 (or newer) to work. I have tested it with 2.2.6 but you need to upgrade the file /forum/admin/bbimport.php to the version you found on vBulletin 2.2.7 or newer.



Important Information:
This merger is beta! You should backup everything before starting. Use it under your own risk!


I decided to reopen this thread with a new version of this merger. I hope it fixes all the problems with previous versions.

REMEMBER:

If you're going to merge two database that are located on the same host, you SHOULD use a different hostname for both database.

For example:

If you have 'localhost' configured as your $servername variable on the admin/config.php file, and you want to merge a database stored on the same server, you should use something like '127.0.0.1'. Another example... If you have $servername configured to 'vbulletin.org', and you want to merge a database located on vbulletin.org, use the IP address for that server instead... In this case '205.214.66.221'. Get it?

Sorry, I'm not very good with english and it's very hard to explain this. I hope you've understood this.

Edit: The poll import is messed up, it doesn't apply to the right thread. Not a horrible thing, but kind of annoying.


I'll take a look

I would love a script that would allow me to import the posts from one user to another user on the same forum ?

You can do this with my script... Do not start the merge, instead, use the utility you found at the bottom of the start page.

Check the attachment.

Yeah I figured that bit out shortly after posting nice work.

Would be nice if you could choose which forums got imported etc.

One thing I did notice was that my post count never increased even though I have more posts now ?

Umh... My post count is increasing normally in some merged forums. If you mean that your post count was not increased after the merge, maybe it's because you didn't run Update Counters.

You should put a big red disclaimer on this hack, someone I know is planning to do this:

There's a new hack that allows Database mergers from multiple vBulletins, and I JUST happen to have an old back up of the old site's database from when there was about 30,000 to 40,000 posts...So what do you think?? I think we oldies deserve this, we EARNED those posts there, and bumping up the site to almost 150,000 posts would be a nice bonus...

PLUS, all of those old members who don't even know about this NEW Game Quest that joined the OLD Game Quest can be updated on the new situation...

Bonus, eh?? I just hope the hack goes smoothly...

EDIT: Plus, your old accounts can be merged with your NEW accounts, meaning I legitimately get back about 5,500 lost posts...

Storm can not sue for that, it\'s all of YOUR intellectual property...Imagine the size of post about the post above you after the merger?!?! Some stuff will have to be merged manually, but that\'s why we got staff
He was my co-admin way back, he recently got upset with me and left the forum to start his own, now he's going to merge my old database with his current one...

I'm not 100% sure how this hack works, but if it can do this, you can count on trouble...

Hey I created a new poll, then when I voted on the new poll, the new poll results showed up in an old poll.

Yes. This problem has been reported, and I'm working on it... I've been really busy lately with almost no-time for this script.

I'll try to fix the problem as soon as possible!
