Project Description


I have an old forum that is currently active and needs to be upgraded to PHPBB3. The current version is PHPBB 1.4 which is 8 years old. Yes, I know I should have updated it long time ago but never really had a chance. So I want to proceed with it now.

I need a PHPBB and PHP expert to work on it. I need the following.

1. I need PHPBB upgraded from 1.4 to the latest version
2. Move all existing forum data that is in PHPBB1.4 to latest version
3. A script that does #1 and #2 since there will be a lapse in the latest forum post between the project start and completion. Or if you know knows what needs to be done, I can disable the live forum while the upgrade takes place.

Please note, this is a large forum with over 38,000 topics, 210,000 posts and over 90,000 members

I can provide a staging site for you to work on or I can send you the sql files. Either way works for me.
