  • Importing duration

    On average, how long does it take to import users, etc? I've had this window open for like 30 minutes already, and I only have around 1,300 users. I didn't include avatars. I'm just wondering if this is supposed to be like this or something went wrong, since there isn't really a progress bar for importing.

    I'm expecting topics/posts to be even longer? =\

    Depends on your server, the system you are importing from, if you are importing remotely hosted avatars etc.

      But since there isn't a progress bar or anything, is it safe to assume that I can just leave this here because it's still working and didn't just freeze?

      EDIT : It's close to 2 hours now....just for users import.

        Without giving any details as requested, there is nothing I can say :

          Sorry about that :

          Clean import
          Source : phpBB 2.0.22
          Target : vBulletin 3.6.7
          Module : Import Users

          No errors, just no signs of completion.

            Then I dare say that you are importing a lot of remotely hosted avatars and PHP has to wait for the network.

            Kill the import and start it again and don't import avatars.

              I said earlier that I wasn't importing avatars. =\

              Anyways, I restarted it and it seemed I was logged out when I pressed restart...so yeah.

              I'll give it another shot.

                For the record, I would expect 1300 users to take between 15-20 seconds.

                  In that case, something must be wrong because it's been 15+ minutes for the 2nd try. =\

                    How many are you doing per page and what is it displaying ?

                      At first I did 2000, then I tried 1000, now 1400.

                      This is what my "loading screen" is :

                        Then its doing nothing, I would try 100-200 per page.

                          LOL, it's finally working...

                          Wow...Thanks.

                          I should do lower numbers for topics/posts.

                            Defiantly, I'm guessing that your server as restrictive memory settings so your going to have to do the import as "a lot of a little" opposed to "a little of a lot" approach.

                              Well, I went through everything, but on the posts import, I had to use 1000 because other values won't let me.

                              However, it just stopped moving at like 22k. Is this normal or is there another problem?
