  • import from phpBB to vBulletin (stop at 35%)

    I tried many times importing my database forum from phpBB 2 to vBulletin.
    270mb, and it stopped at 40mb without any error notification.
    What happened ?
    I tried many times and still the same...

    Not really enough info to go on. At what stage does it stop? Did you make any modifications to your phpBB database?

      found the problem.. thanks steve..

      my next question is, what shoud I do if the import script stopped when doing the thread/post because the internet connection is drop ?

      do I need to empty the vbulletin database and start over again ?

        Yes, you should clear it, run install.php and start again.

            It should take 2 days to do an import. I've never seen this take more than 15 minutes. How big is your phpBB forum? We can't do anything about your Internet connection dropping.
