Convert phpbb to ipb

Hi all,

I'm trying to convert data from my phpbb forum to my new ipb forum. I'm using the converter provided by IPS. But I have no clue how I can convert it.

In the documentation I read that I have to upload the content of the 'upload' map. But where do I need to upload it to? To which folder? Because when I upload the files and folders, I don't see 'Applications Not Installed' in 'Manage Applications & Modules.'. So I can't install it.

Currently I'm running the IP.Board 3.4.8 version.

Many thanks in advance.

Kind regards,
Maarten

Yeah,

 

I've uploaded everything. I select the 'phpBB 3.0 / 3.1' for IP.Board (I have a phpBB 3.1.5). I've filled in all the database information fields and when I continue, I get the error:

Error

An unexpected error occurred, could not locate conversion ID. Please try again.
Go Back

Some of the conversions aren't available like group permissions I think. 

Try to convert phpBB to IPB 3.4.x then from IPB 3.4.x to IPS.
