  • Impex Attachment Crash

    The importing of a large phpbb2 board has gone reasonable well until I got to the attachments. It get through about 300 of them then bombs with the following message:

    UPDATE vb_attachment
                                filedata = '%PDF-1.2

    MySQL error:
    I have already bumped the MYSQL max_packet_size up pretty high.

    Any suggestions?

    Also I'm not seeing the imported data in my forums. It says it successfully imported 1000s of posts but there are no posts when I view the forums.

    Thanks, -Sean

    That is a server issue meaning the database is failing.

    I would change the vBulletin attachment storage type to the file system and not the database before the import, use the file system over the database for most set ups.
    I wrote ImpEx.
