we are getting ready to move from vB to XF. We imported our data from vBulletin in, done our tweaks on languages phrases, style and so on.
Now it's time to reimport our data, since new posts and threads have been opened.
Since we have ~100GB of Attachment on vB, it took us during the 1st import about 7 hours to finish importing Attachments.
Question: Is it possible to import ALL but attachments? I have Stopped Attachment upload on our forum.
1/ Backup the following tables: xf_attachment, xf_attachment_data and xf_attachment_view (enough?)
2/ Move internal_data folder outside XF directory
3/ DROP ALL XF Database tables.
4/ Install XF
5/ Import Style, Language
6/ Run importer and import everything, skipping the Import Attachment step.
7/ Restore xf_attachment, xf_attachment_data and xf_attachment_view DB tables
8/ Move internal_data folder back to the XF directory.
Will this work?
