phpBB importer works OK to a point…
I’m having a bit of trouble with the phpBB importer in bbPress 2.5.4.
I’ve been through about 15 imports in a cloned staging area with varying results.
My phpBB forum contains 260,000 posts, 20,000 topics and about 13,000 users. The forum has been “cleaned up” in phpBB first meaning that I’ve used phpBB’s tools to resync the forums
On each import, it works ok to a point where it successfully importing the users, forum structure and the topics. Once it begins importing and converting to replies, it gets to about 158,000 and hangs.
Clicking Stop and allowing a few minutes of rest and start again does work but the converter slows to a crawl, sometimes to 1/50th of the original speed.
Another issue is that many thousands of the replies seem to be mismatched and they’re not in their correct forums.
Usually bbPress’s repair tools fail to correct the mismatch.
Does anyone here have any guidance for me?
