Since its creation in 2000, phpBB has become the most widely used Open Source forum solution. Like its predecessors, phpBB has an easy to use administration panel and a user-friendly installation process, which allows you to have a forum set up in minutes.
But with a significant number of new technologies appearing every minute, there is a variety of incredible forum boards besides phpBB. And if one day it happens that you feel like trying something else, starting from scratch is not the wisest decision. Just for such cases, an automated phpBB migration exists.
Where you win if resort to the automated converters?
- Save a lot of time and efforts, as far as there’s no copy-pasting at all;
