Hi there ladies and gentlemen... I would like to convert a postnuke web site to geeklog (move the stories, comments, and so forth), but have no idea where to start.

There was a post on here some time ago about a covnersion script, but that is no longer a working link... so... here\'s my call for assistance.

Anyone able to help?

Thanks
Kilty

You can find the scripts to get you started right here. Note that you should be fairly comfortable with working in PHP and your DB to customize certain portions for your own setup.

Hi,

I run a postnuke site, and now i am moving to GL, has it rocks
(much faster)

I am using the script to convert the DB, but I am running into troubles.
after fixing a part of the script, i am getting this now:

error with query: (0, '', '', '5f4dcc3b5aa765d61d8327deb882cf99', '', '2004-03-28 02:34:37')

I know it's coming from this part of the script:
}
$uids[] = $gl_users[$hash["uname"]];
//printf("uid [%d]n", $gl_users[$hash["uname"]]);
// print "$sqln";
( mysql_query($sql, $dbh) ) or trigger_error("query failed: [$sql]", E_USER_WARNING);
}

could someone please help me solve my issue,
thanks a lot guys.

I don't really see the SQL query - just the data. It appears to be part of an INSERT statement

I have done more research on the script :

$sql = "insert into gl_stories (sid, nuke_sid, uid, tid, date, title, introtext, bodytext) values ";
print "[ OK ]n";


$sql .= sprintf("('%s', %d, %d, '%s', '%s', '%s', '%s', '%s')",
$gl_sid,
$hash['sid'],
$gl_uid,
$gl_tid,
$hash['time'],
addslashes($hash['title']),
addslashes($hash['hometext']),
addslashes($hash['bodytext'])
);

//print "$sqln";
mysql_query($sql) or DIE("error with query: $sql");
//( mysql_query($sql, $dbh) ) or trigger_error("query failed: [$sql]", E_USER_WARNING);
}



and when i run it it get stuck at :
$sql .= sprintf("('% .............


argh, i really need this script to work. I have several website to migrate.
HELP please

I'd suggest you test the assignment and build of the SQL statement.

Test the sprintf statement and determine if there is a bad parameter being based in - one thats not assigned possibly.

You can also use phpMyAdmin to test the SQL statement once you get it being assigned correctly. There obviously needs to be a value for each field in the INSERT stmt.

Hi,

the anonymous poster was me,
I must say thanks a lot for the help, and Geeklog rules, much faster than postnuke.

there's the script (I have modified it to correct some obvious bug to me) but it still not working.

If you need to do some try on the DB:

that's the new geeklog one


that's the old nuke one

I suggest using the CODE BB tag so that the forum does not try to interpret any HTML or special characters.

I don't have NUKE installed and can't run the code but I've taken a crack at the section you were talking about and re-wrote the code to prepare the SQL statement.

I'm not sure why the original had a print "$sqln"; when the variable is $sql - probally just some copy/paste. I also noticed the mysql_query had ( ) around the call - not sure why - maybe it was used in a return in another location.

Try this:
PHP Formatted Code

foreach ( $nuke_stories as $key => $hash ) {
  // sleep(1) to make sure that a unique $gl_sid is generated
  // quick hack ( not good if there are many records to convert )
  sleep(1);
  $gl_sid = COM_makesid();
  printf("sid => %-20s ", $gl_sid);
  $gl_uid = aid_to_gl_uid($hash['aid'], $aid_to_username, $gl_users);
  printf("uid => %3d ", $gl_uid);
  //$gl_tid = get_gl_tid($hash['topic'], $dbh);
  //printf("tid => %-20sn", $gl_tid);

  $hash['title'] = addslashes($hash['title']);
  $hash['hometext'] = addslashes($hash['hometext']);
  $hash['bodytext'] = addslashes($hash['bodytext']);
  $sql = "INSERT INTO $gl_storytable (sid, nuke_sid, uid, tid, date, title, introtext, bodytext)
        values ('$gl_sid', '{$hash['sid']}','$gl_uid', '$gl_tid', '{$hash['time']}', '{$hash['title']}', '{$hash['hometext']}', '{$hash['bodytext']}')"
;

  print "$sql";
  mysql_query($sql, $dbh)  or trigger_error("query failed: [$sql]", E_USER_WARNING);
}

I suggest you now try that SQL stmt using phpMyAdmin to assist you troublehooting why its generating a SQL error. You are not seeing the actual SQL error - just that there is one.

Do you have phpMyAdmin installed?

If not -- it's highly recommended that you install this tool if you are doing anything with mysql.

Yes I do have phpMyAdmin installed.
but never used it to do such thing.

I only use it to create or drop database.
I am only a user of php/mysql, not a develloper

Ok - well it's quite powerfull. You should start by trying to execute a few simple SQL statments - like a SELECT. Browse one of the tables - and you will see the SQL statement.


I'm suggesting you would enter the SQL statement that your trying to execute in code.

PHP Formatted Code

INSERT INTO gl_stories (sid, nuke_sid, uid, tid, date, title, introtext, bodytext)
values ('20040328060842303', '22','2', '', '2003-05-01 21:20:15', 'I am back', 'Hi all, I am back on track for my site.
My new server is online, and i am running some anti cheats tools. soon, you will get some details'
, '')

 


If you are not familar with SQL and PHP then developing or debugging a Database migration script and converting a Nuke site to Geeklog is quite a significant undertaking.

Does your gl_stories table have a field called nuke_sid ?
Geeklog by default would not.

you are right about nuke_sid:

I run the command into the Query Window and i am getting this:


MySQL said:
#1054 - Unknown column 'nuke_sid' in 'field list'


dude, you are getting me into this stuff, i want to learn it.
