I have a board with over 1.5 million post and over 700 CMS articles.

Could the importer that I assumes comes with xenforo support such a migration?
Would would i do with the articles?

What are some of the issues others have ran into?

I want to get a test forum up and hopes of going live in 6 months.

I do not believe the official importer imports articles, however, I believe the unofficial importers import them as threads.

I guess my hope is they could be imported into a table so if xenforo offers a cms in the future they could be brought back to life. Could the official importer handle such a large database? Im curious to hear replies from others than have done the same.

You can just copy the table in phpmyadmin from one database to the other. 700 articles maybe just a few MB, you can also export them in phpmyadmin as a .sql and then import them in your new database.

If you use the same database, you don't even have to copy the table.

If you can get your CMS articles converted to threads, then you can probably use this addon to convert them into articles.
