    sorry steve ive already done that today.

    here is the stats after i edited config file
    PHP Memory Limit 128.00 MB

    so i try again - Failed :: Attachment not imported
    Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 2538179 bytes) in /impex/ImpExFunction.php on line 180

    so as you can see increasing the PHP memory limit has no effect on it at all.

      This means that your server is not recognizzing this change. I'm afraid you are going to need to ask your host to change this directly in php.ini, then restart Apache.

            This error clealy shows that your server is not uing 128M:

            Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted

            Also are you still using Impex instead of upgrading as we recommended?

              i cant upgrade because for the simple reason after upgrading 3.5.4 to 3.6.8 the board has quite a few bugs so am getting everything of use to a new board on the same server so i can kill off the old one.

              also upgrading would not remove any hacks that are in the database would it so why would i want to upgrade a board that has hacks from a few yrs back.

              Impex does other boards so why not its own

                You have a 33GB attachment table - that's why. You are going to need tons of memory and time. And even your last change did not take hold because your server is still only allowing 32M.

                I do not know how to make this work. The recommended method is to upgrade. Impex was not designed for this. Maybe Jerry will have some further thoughts, but in the meantime you need to investigate why your server refuses to allocate more memory.

                  I've run PHP at 512 Meg for large imports, the attachment is being read it memory to be written to the vBulletin file store or database.

                  The only thing is either lower the per page even more or raise the memory, or do it on another server, move the attachments to the database then move the database and restore it.

                      so basically what u saying is upgrade my old board to 3.6.8 as it be a lot easier but you must admit if i do that it will still leave a lot of crap in the database which is redundant and no longer needed from old hacks.

                      Such as extra tables from hacks that have been previously installed so it wont be a fresh board as any of these tables can throw up errors.

                        If a table is not being accessed anymore then it shouldn't be able to throw errors. However you can compare your installation with the tables in installs/mysql-schema.php for 3.6.8 and delete any extraneous fields or tables from the database. That is actually the preferred method. ImpEx is not an upgrade tool nor is it "database cleaning" tool.

                          You can delete any extra tables from hacks (assuming these are not default vB tables of course.) That hardly requires any effort at all.

                            ive decided to scrap this idea and just import the attachments to the threads manually.
                            Is over 4000 threads to do so will take some time doing them but at least i know the attachments will get there fine.

                              well heres hoping - left it running overnight last night and it still doing the attachments but must admit its very slow.

                              Total Attachments 2,952
                              Disk Space Used 2.64 GB


                              is what it has moved so far - there is 26,000 of them in total so may take some time unless it crashes out while im at work today.

                                Disk Space Used 2.80 GB
