Migrating to bbPress from custom built-forum
I’m in the process of migrating a custom-built PHP/MySQL forum (approx. 1.8 million topics and replies in total) to bbPress 2.5.8 on WP 4.5. My solution is to generate a bunch of bulk insert SQL scripts for wp_posts with post types forum, topic and reply.
This works. After the import, though, I need to run the bbPress repair tool, in order for posts, post counts etc. to be displayed correctly.
I’d prefer to avoid as many manual tasks as possible when switching from the old forum to the bbPress one, so I’m considering two options:
1) Run the repair from the command line rather than in the browser.
2) Generate the required wp_postmeta rows as part of my export.
I have a couple of questions about this:
Regarding option 1, is it even possible and does such a script exist?
Regarding option 2, what are the required wp_postmeta keys I would need to generate?
Thanks in advance for any input on this.
