After a fair amount of testing (thanks Rashan) the updated PHPBB2 to E107 conversion script is now available for others to test/use - 2dopey has kindly agreed to host it here: [-link-]
It includes the mods made to the 'distribution' converter in CVS, plus some other tweaks and, most important for some users, bbcodes can now be allowed through, reformatted and even changed. Most of it is table driven, so should be reasonably easy to adjust to specifc requirements.
Comments good and bad please - either here or by pm to me.
sorry to sound stupid but where can i change that? the script runs on my pc browser for about 5-10 mins,
my database is roughly 45-50mb in size.
when the script is running i have checked its progress in phpadmin and it pretty much instantly copies the users and forum structure, then spends about 3-5 minutes seemingly doing nothing as it doesnt copy any posts.
is there anything else you would like me to test?
also, i have run the script again, it timed out below you can see the time running (453) and the state (copying to tmp table) strangely there is also another (locked) process below it seemingly doing nothing.
i personally dont know much about this stuff, but maybe it will shed more light on the problem
85587 grimire localhost grimire_phpbb1 Query 453 Copying to tmp table SELECT * FROM phpbb_topics\nLEFT JOIN phpbb_posts_text ON (phpbb_topics.topic_title = phpbb_posts_tex
You'd normally get an error message if script execution timed out, I think. But its probably set in php.ini - worth checking. It might be an obvious question (so obvious its not in the docs) but had you installed the forum plugin before running the script?
If your phpbb database is small enough for me to have a copy , probably first move is for me to try and run that on my own PC to see whether I can replicate the problem.
Otherwise any debugging would have to be done on your actual site (or a test site), for which I'd need an admin access to E107 plus FTP access to the E107 directories and the access information for the phpbb database.
Incidentally, have you tried a different browser in case that's the problem?
