My forum which is currently phpbb 2.0.17 is getting toooo frustrating to handle any more because of all the spamming. I can ban IP's but that's really about it and of course they just keep coming in with new ones.

The only other one that I have in Cpanel is Yabb which installs fairly easily so that's my only choice seeing how it is FREE and I would be clueless as to trying to install something that doesn't do it by itself. That said I have a lot of posts on the phpbb forum and I was wondering if there is some sort of way to transfer the data from the phpbb to the Yabb forum. Looking at the Yabb admin panel I didn't even see where you can download or upload. Thanks for any feedback you can offer
