  • Install, Migration and Resource use


    Ive just purchased vBulletin and will be migrating an existing phpBB 2 board, with categories hierarchy mod.

    Its a moderately large board with 3000 users and over 700,000 posts

    I want to use a backup of the live DB to do a test upgrade.

    Several other sites that I dont own, as well as the live site are installed on the same server.

    When I run the vB installation and the migration tool, how long would a DB of this size typically take to migrate? (I know its somewhat dependent on resource availability and hardware spec, but just some ball park figures would be good.

    And when running the migration should I expect the server to be crippled?

    It will probably take an hour or two with default settings and shouldn't put an overly large burden on your server as long as you don't try to do too much in a single batch.
