Converting to v2... ( 04:33:18 WedFeb 13 2008 )

Board Plan: Variable

I apologize if this question has been answered, and I'm unable to find it with the search function...

Once you've done all the license purchasing and so on, and you're ready to hit the convert button, does your Bbboy v1 board continue working?

When you're ready for the old board to be deleted (after a successful conversion), what are the steps we have to take to delete it?

Thank you!

Hi Maj,

The old board will continue to work so you'll probably want to leave it in Maintenance Mode and after it's reverted to free it will be scheduled for deletion in the next server purge. It's that simple. Let us know if you need anything or have any questions.

Next question!

I'm a little worried about potential data loss after the conversion. If people continue posting on the old boards while I'm putting the finishing touches on the v2 boards, can I hit the convert button again to pick up the newer posts once I know what I'm doing?

Yes you can convert once again as long as none of the finishing touches are posts, forums or users, it's fine to do it again (those 3 things are overwritten on the v2 board when you convert). You'll probably have to clear the forums posts and users before re-converting, but settings, templates etc will still be there. :smile:

Good thing we can run it more than once, since our original choice for host seems to have gone under, and we had to start over...

Anyway, another question. It appears that user PMs are not converted? Do they come over when a user gives permission for his/her account to be transferred, or are they just lost forever?

As I suspected they are serverwide and stay here in the V1 network's database so they tecnically aren't lost, but only forums, users, and posts are converted. If you or any of your members have any other questions don't hesitate to post them Zherog. :smile:

That's what I expected as well, but it's good to have it confirmed. Thanks.
