Does the importer bring over vbseo likes from my vbulletin forum?
There isn't a module for that in the importer, but you can do this:
Then the vbseo likes will be imported as part of the positive reputation module which imports rep as likes. Since this is modifying the source for the purpose of an import you should backup first.
Will that same query work with vb 3.8? That thread is about vb4...
Yes. It's the same for vB3 source and the vB3 importer.
Can anyone estimate how long a forum with about 4.5 posts will take to transfer?
4.5 million posts? I would guesstimate 12 hours. That's a very rough guess.
Wow, that's a long time...
This is what you get for large data set and not using command line.
I did a test import on 1.2 Beta 4 and it took (28 hours 4 minutes 34.21 seconds) to import just the posts alone . I should note that I did the import from a backup database while my live board was running so I'm sure that slowed things down.
I started the import before beta 5 came out so I'm wondering if the new and improved importer would have any effect on the amount of time. Anyone know about that? Maybe @Brogan ?
You can use this importer if downtime is a problem:
But it's not free and it requires more effort / expertise to use.
coli in here!!! no wonder why the board slowed down that day lol
a least Jake's helping.
