nice :) I hope it comes soon. I am planning to migrate my community over the weekend from vb to xf. I'm not taking legacy data at this time. Too painful.

The original forum is about 2.8Gb of discussions. I tried migrating it and it took about 50+ hours but I did get it into XF.

I figure we start fresh.

It will have to stay in the vb3.8 software until such time I can get it into xenforo without dying 80 times during the Import..do you have any suggestions?

Otherwise the site will wind up off line for several days while all 8 years imports and o have to keep restarting the importer babysitting it.

Unfortunately there's no other way of doing.

That's a lot of data to import so it's going to take some time, the more performance your server has though, the quicker it will be.

One of the things I did think about was to import to another instance to allow it to convert without impacting the community. Then migrate the converted database via sql.
