  • very large import phpBB - > vB 3.6.8

    OK, I've had several issues with importing a very large phpBB board to vB.

    I seem to be loosing posts, getting 1970 dates and some users import errors. Even after

    phpBB 2.0.22
    impex 1.85
    vB 3.6.8
    PHP 4.4.6
    SQL 4.1.22-standard

    I have my php memory_limit set to -1 = no memory limit (temporarily)
    max_execution_time set to 240
    max_input_time set to 240

    but still running into problems. I've tried running impex inside and outside the AP but still no luck.

    any help would be appreciated.

    I have about 27K users
    and over 1 million posts
    My db backup file is about 530M

    I seem to get some errors on threads, users, and posts but I don't know what they are because it takes so long to run and I don't sit there watching it trying to catch the error.

    In your impExConfig you can set this :

    PHP Code:
    define('impexdebug'true); 
    Then see what's in the impexerror table.

    but still running into problems. I've tried running impex inside and outside the AP but still no luck.
    What problems ? If ImpEx is failing some data there is almost always a good reason for it, incomplete or orphaned is the usual.

      Thanks Jerry, I will set that in the impex config file.

      I'm only getting about 75,000 posts out of 1.1Million. As well as all my dates are around 1970.

      I will give that another go in the am. I'm too worn out tonight.

        so, I could not get impex to work or view the error code(s), I've updated the phpbb board to phpBB3 RC5, which found a bunch of errors and fixed them.

        I've noticed that impex only supports BB3 RC2. My question is can I run it with RC5?

        Thanks in advance.

          I've done import from phpBB with board much bigger than that, but I'd need more details than "but still running into problems. " to be able to help.

          I've not seen a RC5 database, just a RC2, though I'm getting any changes now will be code opposed to database schema this late in the day I'd guess it would be fine yes.

          Though if it isn't and I can have a copy of the source I'll update it.

            I also have a RC5 PHPBB installation. I attempted it with the RC2, but it hickup'd on the user import portion.

              I've tried a RC5 with the latest phpBB3 importer and it was OK.

              Can you start your own thread and elaborate on the hickup, cheers.
