VBGamer was so kind to publish his patched OpenImporter for PortaMX so you can now import SMF 2.0.15
to PortaMX Forum 1.3
Well here is a short explanation how it works... ( at least the way it worked to import SMF into Elkarte, as I tested it before)

1. First you have to backup all the files and the database for safety.
Then move the SMF installation and all its files into a subdirectory of your domain,
like https://domain.com/smf/

2. then  use the tool repair_settings.php from SMF to repair the path settings and the other settings,
as the SMF Forum now resides in the subfolder.
Make sure the SMF  forum then still works fully from the path:
https://domain.com/smf/

3. Install a fresh copy of PMX 1.3 into the root folder,
https://domain.com/
into the same Database as used for SMF.
PortaMX will add its tables to the same database, that is used for SMF. Very important,
don´t use a different database...!

4. Now copy the OpenImporter Folder and its files into the
https://domain.com/smf/
path ,so it looks like this:
https://domain.com/smf/importer

5. Now go to your browser and call up:

https://domain.com/smf/importer/import.php

and give it the pathes he wants to know and then start the conversion...

OpenImporter will then copy and convert the SMF tables into the PMX Tables
and thus import your content into PortaMX.

After it is done you have a database, that has both tables in it from SMF and PMX, so your
database is twice as big....

VBGamer said, you still have to fix some settings with the avatars, etc... but maybe he will tell us
soon exactly, how this has to be done...

So far my knowledge about OpenImporter...  and thanks again to VBGamer to having released it.
He did a great job in helping me convert my forum.

Best regards, Stefan.

You use the same database with the same prefix ?
In this case the exist tables are are (a. not created or b. The installer don't create the table, or c. the installer crashes)
I think you mean .. in the same TABLE with a different PREFIX, rigth? (smf2.0 prefix = smf_, portamx prefix = pmx)
That make sense ...

Also you have to drop the Portal tables in the old "Source" table before converts if you have the PortMx Portal installed I think ...

Many are stubborn in relation to the way, but less in relation to the target.

No,
you use the same database, but you will have there then the
SMF_ prefix tables
and
PMX_ prefix tables....

so the database then has twice as much tables !

Surely you have to delete portaMX 1.54ecl from the SMF installation
first, so you don´t have other tables which start with
PMX_

At least this worked with SMF 2.0.15  to Elkarte, but only with  Elkarte 1.1.0

Yeah .. THIS make sense ..
Does this have to be set in the Openimporter WHAT Prefixes are used for what ?

I don´t remember, just try it...
make a new SMF Forum and then move it to the subdirectory and install PMX Forum in the root directory into the same database...

OpenImporter only wants to know the pathes, when I remember correctly....

Look it up on Elkarte, there I posted exactly how it goes...

VBGamer still told me:
 But there is some manually parts i did with scripts for avatars, attachments, and some settings changes that I did manually...

So if somebody has used already the patched openimporter he should contact VBGamer ( the owner of SMFhacks.com) to pay him to help setup the rest of the conversion process.
