  • Why can't I skip steps if information was imported

    Hello.. I'm having a bit of a problem.

    I'm currently importing my system and it stalls on the last page of the POST importing..

    The thing is... I think it stalls on the LAST post in the database.. and whenever I try to go to the next mod.. it starts back on that last page of the POST importing.

    How can I skip that section or force it to go to the next section?

    You can't skip sections if they are dependant, on the last page of posts, ImpEx updates all the post.parentid's, that can take a while some times.

    How many posts are you importing ?

      I'm importing 233,000 post.

      The script gets to "Importing 230,000 - 232,000 post"..

      And it stalls and gives this error..

      ImpEx Database errormysql error: Invalid SQL: SELECT postid, importpostid FROM post WHERE importpostid = K YOUR 423511
      mysql error: You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'YOUR 423511' at line 1
      mysql error number: 1064

            Can you start a support ticket and ask for me, there is something going on as there should be nothing but integers being passed as an importpostid.

            Is the source hacked ?
