I have a phpBB 3.x-based site which I would like to migrate to SMF - basically, all threads, posts, user accounts and possibly PMs.

This seems to be possible, but I haven't been able to find a solid tutorial/ guide that can help me through this.

Does anybody have any experience doing this or know of a good guide that can help me out?

This thread should help you, it is one of many converters you can find by doing a quick google.

I think this was the one I used when I moved a small phpBB install to SMF.

  • Excellent! Thanks - I'll see how I get on with it.
