Importing from phpbb

Hello,

I am interested in purchasing xenforo but I currently have a large phpbb forum. My forum has over 1.3million posts, will I experience any issues when importing from phpbb to xenforo? (the existing phpbb database is 1.3gb).

Will the search index on xenforo work with the old phpbb posts and threads?

Thanks

There is a built in phpBB importer - you can see what is imported in the pre-sales FAQ thread in my signature.

You won't have any issues importing a site of that size.

The search index will need to be rebuilt after the import.

The size isn't an issue, it will just take longer.
The search index size is irrelevant as that won't be imported.
