Hi Stephen, Cheers for the reply!
I’ve spoken with the host where the forum database I’ve been trying to import is located and they don’t anticipate being able to upgrade MySQL until the end of the year – It’s this kind of service that prompted me to move to a new host in the first place!
With this not being an option I’m wondering if there is a way I can manually export the database to my new server running MySQL 5.3.3, manually update the database to utf8mb4 and retry the import from there. I’ve found an article at https://mathiasbynens.be/notes/mysql-utf8mb4 which appears to be along the right lines but might be a bit of a stretch for me as I’m pretty new to WordPress and coding. Does this seem like a sensible next step?
Thanks for all the help and advice so far!
Can anyone provide any further insight on this error?
Thanks for the help so far!
Here are the PHP/MySQL details of the server on which I am trying to access the existing forum database:
Current PHP version: 5.3.3-7+squeeze13
Server version: 5.0.51a-24+lenny4
MySQL client version: 5.1.49
It just so happens I get the following warning when I log onto phpmyadmin: ‘Your PHP MySQL library version 5.1.49 differs from your MySQL server version 5.0.51a. This may cause unpredictable behavior.’ Which could be a source of the problem?
The server on which I am running my WordPress install and attempting to import the forum to is different and more up to date. Details below:
Current PHP version: 5.4.45
Server version: 5.5.45-cll-lve – MySQL Community Server (GPL)
Cheers for the info Pascal. I’ve installed bbPress bbPress 2.6 but unfortunately the problem persists. There is no table prefix used in the forum i am converting from so have left this field blank when attempting to convert. Is this acceptable? Thanks for the help! Ollie
