XF 1.2 Skip import step while in progress


Well-known member
I'm trying to do a test import for a customer, but while loading the attachments, the server ran out of space. We'd like to continue the import, but skip the attachment step.

Unfortunately, the step never finished, so when attempting to continue the import, it'll just continue with the attachments step.

I'd like to somehow trick the importer into thinking it's done with this step, so I can then continue with the remaining steps. Is this somehow possible without having to restart the whole import? (We're talking millions of posts here, hence my reluctance to restart from scratch).

I recall there's a way to do so by altering some data in a table, but cannot for the life of me remember which table it involves.
