Merging databases

Hello,

My question relates to database migration.

I am using Invision for my website forum. I have a friend that wants to shut down his own website and merge his phBB forum into my database. The idea was to preserve his forum topics by placing them in their own category on my site, something like 'Bob's Forum Archive'. Has something like this been done before? Is it easy/moderate/high risk?

You can use the Converters application (freely available from your client area) to do this. You will be able to convert phpBB into your existing Invision Community. The forums from phpBB will be converted, and the topics/posts placed in those forums as appropriate, and you will then be able to set permissions on those forums, merge them and so on using the built in tools of your existing community.
