Migrating medium-sized Forum from vBulletin 4.2 – Recommendations?
Hello BBPress Community,
I am running a medium-sized vBulletin 4.2 Forum, which I want to migrate to BBPress for various Reasons.
The vBulletin Forum currently has 46k Topics with 490k Posts and 7k registered Users.
I am using the BBPress Built-in Importer to migrate my Forum, but I cant get it to work. The Importer runs smoothly until it gets to “Converting Replies”. It then just gets stuck somewhere in the middle of processing replies… I just see the rotating loading Symbol. At my last try to get this done, it already got stuck at “Converting Replies 0-99” …..
I know that I can press Stop and Start, but I have the feeling that this messes Things up… Take a look at my log:
Converting replies (200 – 249)
Converting replies (0 – 99)
The Script was converting Replies 0 – 99 when it got “stuck”. I pressed Stop and lowered the amount to 50, since I thought maybe 100 is too much? I pressed Start again, and it jumped to “200-249” … So where are replies 100-200 ???
Are there any other ways to migrate my Forum? Maybe a shell Script or php Script that is made to get run via shell, to prevent timeouts etc.?
Thanks for any help on this!
