Vbulletin to BBpress conversion in Stages
Hi BBpress people!
Okay, it’s taken me days to go through with the conversion between vbulletin and bbpress. Until now, I have yet to see my complete forums in bbpress. The process stops eventually every time I restart.
What I have done is:
– copied the vbulletin site to vbulletincopy
– prune it down to 100K post (replies)
– start the conversion
– it’s taken me 8hrs and i’ve only got 18,000 replies converted.
How else can I do this conversion? I really want to get bbpress working.
Can I try this?:
– copy 4 or 5 copies of vbulletin db
– prune posts according to date (eg: 2018 – 2015 / 2015 – 2014)
– go through the conversion again with every “batch” and let it overwrite somehow?
How can I copy it in stages and let the forums operate with the latest data and I can overwrite with more old threads later?
