Fixed I can't download "[tl] Social Groups" for XF2

#8
Has anyone done the importer to import their XF1 social groups data to XF2? Entering in the database username and password is easy but the other fields I have no idea about...I'd like to import so we don't lose all our settings, data and changes but I am afraid to use the importer without a little guidance.. thanks!

@truonglv I'm confused. I had Social Groups for XF1, I have upgraded to XF 2 and installed Social Groups for XF2. I want to use the importer you included to import the data from the XF1 install to the XF 2 install (all same machine, same database) -- i can easily answer the user and password for my database but then there are other fields that it seems to want you to fill out that I don't want to just haphazardly fill in. I am not aware of what data directory or internal directory i would even use to utilize the importer included.

How do I import my data and settings? Thanks.
Do you know the absolute path to data and internal_data in XF 1?

No I don't ..it's wherever your XF1 add on put them.. this is an upgrade from XF1 to XF2 therefore the database is the same as was used in XF1... the only difference is the upgrade from XF1 -> XF2 and add-ons, such as the initial Social Groups from Nobita being made "legacy."

I have the importer that comes with your XF2 Social Groups. It says TL Social Groups from Social Groups but then it wants information from the database that I have no idea of, off hand. I would have expected it to be more self-sufficient because not everyone is code or SQL friendly.

Then we need work over remote control. Please add new PM with me. We will work on that.
