  • IPB 2.3.x to VB

    Ok I have a forum with 1.4M+ posts and 50K+ reg members

    I'm contemplating on converting it to VB.

    My question is about the Impex, won't it cause the browser doing the operation to timeout because of a large database?

    I'm more comfortable doing to conversion via shell

    i.e. mysql> [insert mysql command here]

    so as to avoid timeout

    I converted a 2 million post phpBB to vbulletin with no such issues.

      what about an actual 2.3.6 IPB Board. Didn't you experience a timeout of some sort?

        Haven't used IPB before - so I wouldn't know. No timeouts. Stable server.

          I've converted a 1.000.000+ post IPB forum about 2 years ago. No timeout issues (it's a very well written app).

            Back up your database before you attempt the import so you can always retry it if something goes wrong.
