  • Importing and Screen Shows No Actions

    Yesterday & today I downloaded and installed vBulletin, the Blog, and the import program. Everything seemed to install well and I could access the new board.

    I have never imported from another board, so bear with me as I am a learn as I go along person- I don't know how all this works and don't know coding. I am importing a phpBB2 board version 2.0.22.

    Everything appeared to be going well. It imported everything up to the posts. It is here I encountered a problem. The first attempt I left the setting as it was and it went to a screen that showed no activity, as seen in the first image in this thread

    I waited a little while and tried opening another admin panel. It allowed me to redo the post import as it hadn't imported anything. I cut the number back to 50 and for a few thousand posts it seemed fine. Then it went to the same screen and shows no activity. After waiting some time, I tried opening another admin panel and it will only show that same screen.

    How do I know if it is still running or if there is a problem? My old board has 20902 posts, so it isn't real large.

    I'd appreciate any detailed advise. Much thanks!

    Well, twice I restarted the process. It stopped both times after transferring up to post 11287, a little more than halfway through.

    So, I need some help......

      I tried again and changed the skipparentids to true and the same happened.....

        This may be a server time and/or memory limit. To temporarily up your limits edit your includes/config.php file and add these lines right under the <?php line:

        ini_set('memory_limit', 32 * 1024 * 1024);
        ini_set("max_execution_time", "800");
