I currently have a message board that I've had for a while. It's Ikonboard Verson 3.0.1. It's a cgi one.
I was wanting to upgrade to a new php or some other form. However, I do not want to loose all the posts that have been posted thus far. What are my options here? Im just looking for something where I can import the old data. There is a new php ikonboard version out i believe. Im just looking for something newer that will allow me to incorporate a lot of the boards features into an overall website.

Just create separate .htm pages with those prior posts - recreating whatever format you want for them - and link to them from the new board. (Think outside the box.)

If you use IBF or phpBB 2, they both have convertor's to convert from that CGI one to there's
Hope that helps.

Ok, after referring to the instal instructions for the phpbb I see several different directions for upgrading from previous version. However, I am still unclear as to what directions I need to follow for my old cgi version of ikonboard.

Thanks for the help

Thx for the quick reply Dave.
I see on the converter list they have one for iKonBoard 2.1.x. However, I am running version 3.0.1.
Any idea if this converter should work for my version or not? =)

Problem apparently solved, thought I would post the solution just in case anyone else was wondering.
I found a 3rd party ikonboard 3x converter, a link can be found on their forums
