    There isn't much "LOL" about it, I'm quite happy that it's still running, proves the stability if anything !

    Taking out the hacks you had put in would of been a lot quicker and the preferred method opposed to using ImpEx to clean it up as you are going to loose all kinds of other data that ImpEx doesn't import as well.

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
