Rather slow PHPFox conversion
Hello. I’m trying to import a PHPFox forum into bbPress.
The PHPFox database has been installed locally, as has WordPress/BBpress, on my own desktop.
The conversion proceeds at a fair clip until it gets to importing the replies (i.e. the bulk of the posts), at which point it slows badly. I’ve tried it with various Rows Limit settings (between 10 and 1000) and there doesn’t seem to be an appreciable difference in overall speed. I’ve tried various mysql configuration settings, too, including the recommendations of mysqltuner.pl — no appreciable difference there, either. The tables have been optimized.
In about half an hour, it’s gotten through about 4500 rows. As it’s pulling from a 535,500-row database table, it’ll take about 60 hours!
Is this to be expected given the size of the database? Any hints to getting this done faster?
