  • phpBB2 migration - posts issue

    Not sure what is going on, but my phpBB2 install has 711,192 posts

    Ive been migrating the forum using ImpEx, and currently (for a few hours) its been importing posts.

    Issue Im having is that the posts count on the import screen is currently:

    From : 6960294 :: To : 6962326

    I dont understand this - how can these numbers exist when there are only ~700k posts in the forum?

    Or are these number some kind of post ID?

    Well it finished and it reported the correct number of posts were imported.

    So I guess those numbers were IDs after all?

      Postids are auto-incremented and when posts are deleted the old numbers are not reused. For this reason the highest postid will almost certainly be higher than the total number of posts.
