  • 2 import questions

    Hi,

    I am running the phpbb2 import script (the members area one) for the newest version of vbulletin.

    The users and forum topics imported fine so did the posts (they are in the table) but they do not display.

    Any ideas on why?

    Also - can I import our members database of 400,000 right into the users table without any problems or will the table get too big?

    Thanks,
    Ryan

    Please read the Importing HOWTO thread:

    http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showthread.php?t=116398

    Take special note of The End Game section. Following these steps should solve those issues.

    Also I don't understand the second question since you said you already imported the users.

      The users I imported are from phpBB (our old forum).

      We also have our own membership database of 400,000 registered users.

      I can make a script that select our main site login, pass, name, etc and then insert into the users table with vbulletin without any problems (hopefully) ? Is 400,000 too many?

        It's not quite that simple. Your custom script would have to update three tables:

        user
        userfield
        usertextfield

        As to whther or not this will be a problem, that depends on the power and configuration of your server.
