Help on profile picture after importing from vbulletin

edited March 2012 in Vanilla 2.0 Help

I have a vbulletin 4.0.8 that uses a file system for its avatars and profile picture. I wanted to import my vbulletin forum to a vanilla forum..done with the importer tool, done with uploading it in my server, the users and all the posts are now there.. the only problem is the avatar not showing. I know i havent downloaded it from my vbulletin yet but where do i download it and where should i upload it in a vanilla forum? thanks so much!

    It's in the comments for VanillaPorter:


    1) Avatars should be moved to the filesystem prior to export if they
    are stored in the database. Copy all the avatar_* files from
    vBulletin's /customavatars folder to Vanilla's /upload/userpics.
    IMPORTANT: Make /userpics writable by the server BEFORE IMPORTING.

    2) Attachments should likewise be moved to the filesystem prior to
    export. Copy all attachments from vBulletin's attachments folder to
    Vanilla's /upload folder without changing the internal folder structure.
    IMPORTANT: Enable the FileUpload plugin BEFORE IMPORTING.
