Tried PHP 8.1, 8.0, 7.4, 7.2 but with no change.

There have been issues with 4.6-> from reading in the importer bug issues area. I don't know when the last time the IPS importer was updated. I

The importer finished by not selecting to import Polls.
However, there're now several other issues. For example, it seems that all users have 3 multiple accounts (user, user1, user2) and there are duplicates for boards as well.

Seems that the IPS importer needs work. When was it last updated?

I doubt they will update the importers until 2.3 comes out, hoping to grab people wanting to move over with the new release. I know I ran the importer here last year, and ran into a few problems with smileys etc. but was able to get everything imported over from IPS. One problem that is going to be is IPS is doing monthly releases now so there is a lot of code changing going on. It would be a full-time job for Xenforo to keep on top of it now.
