    Under "maintenance" I have updated user titles and ranks, rebuilt thread and forum data. I think I "updated user names" but can't remember now. Any ideas ?

    Should I "rebuild statistics" ?

    Rebuilding statistics will cause the loss of the total forum view and active users data. Only run this if you believe you really need to! Once the data has been replaced, there is no way to restore your database
    Though all the members appear in the usergroup manager ?

    Bingo, just wish someone had told me this weeks ago...would have saved alot of headache. In my case I was trading "integrity" for the possiblity of doing it at all...it was that or nothing.

    Sorry to bump in here, but I had one question. I ran each module only once during conversion and the conversion went without a glitch. Is running a module twice a must or it is recommended only in case when errors occur? Thank you

    Idealy you should shut the forums as Steve has said.

    That being said ........ knowing how long ubb.classic imports take, you're plan would work in theory, by having all the others closed (or hidden or with a redirect) to protect them from change.

    ImpEx will be ok, it's just the consistency of the source data that is the issue with importing against an open form, and in ubb.classics case PHP getting a read on the files while perl is using some of them.

    Answer in short is it's a bit risky, but can be done, though I advise against it.

    You cannot do a partial import, i.e., importing one forum at a time.

    Yes I know but that's sort of the point....wouldn't it be safe to import a forum that is archived on the source board with the overall forum site still open ? In other words, a forum that no one could be adding to or altering in any way during the import even when all the other forums are still "open" ?

    I would be monitoring the process of course and when I see Forum 24 is finished import, then I would close the source site to import the other forums that would be otherwise still active.

    FWIW, I should have said Forum 1 for this example instead of Forum 24, but hopefully you get the idea.

    All forums are imported, regardless of status. You should cclose the forums while doing any import, otherwise there is a high likelihood of data being messed up.

    Can source forum be left open during import in certain circumstances ?

    For instance, you leave forum no. 24 open in the source forum, but close forums (or "hide" really) forums 1 thru 23, while forums 1 thru 23 are being imported ?

    Reason= Taking many, many hours to import posts and would be nice to at least have one forum useable by members during the process.

    Source -UBB Classic 6.7
    Target - VB 3.6.8
    Size- 650,000 posts

    While user import time improved, the time to import 72,000 threads did not...still took *6 hours*

    At first it was importing 800 threads per minute, so I calculated 90 minutes. But as the threads stacked up it got slower and slower, so toward the end was only importing 200 per minute. Anyone have any idea why this is happening ?
