    I was wondering how much downtime I would expect while importing? I have 10k members, 80k topics, and 3.5 mill posts to import. Want to start planning for this process so hoping someone can ballpark it. Thanks.

    import it into a different folder. No downtime.

    The posts will take the longest.

    This post has some numbers for you. You can use those numbers to approximate how long your import will take.

    It's all about the database and not the folder :)

    What I meant to say, is it could take a day to do the import, but if xF resides in a different folder, the original vB isnt affected. (but its probably better to turn it off, or do the import on a clone of the database, then you can have your site have no downtime, and just lose the days posts when you make the switch. Whatever you prefer)
