Huge bbPress 1.2 – bbPress 2.5.8 import
Trying to import a very large bbpress 1.2 forum to the latest. As I understand it, the converter essentially reads through all topics, replies and forums and creates a new post of type “forum” in the main WP database.
My issue is that this forum has approx. 520k topics and many, many more replies. The furthest the import process has managed to get has been 67k posts imported before timing out or dying in some unshown way. This is running on a dedicated server with 4GB RAM which runs nothing else.
Short of me rewriting the converter so it’s pure scripting and doesn’t run in WP, is there some way for me to speed this up and make sure it doesn’t die? To recap, it’s died in the following ways:
1) got to 67k, ended in ———- : AFAIK from reading, this is due to login timeout. I’ve solved that by auto refreshing the dashboard page
2) Says “starting conversion” hangs there indefinitely : logging that I’ve put in place indicates that inserts are happening but nothing is coming through on the WP log window. This eventually dies as well.
Any advice would be great – I’m not sure if @netweb is still around but if yes, please help 😀 I’ve read all your posts to other people on this sorta topic.
