Actually, its not easy. The current software is running on a Windows server. The new software runs on a Linux server. Since Windows is not case-sensitive and Linux IS case sensitive, we run the risk of breaking years worth of links to old photos.

I'm trying to find a tool that will

a) convert the existing file and folder names to all lowercase (easy)
b) scour the forums and convert all links to lowercase (not so easy)
c) convert from phpBB software to another that is Mobile Friendly. (moderate)
