Downtime for import


Active member
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.

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)
