Hi all; I am currently running a VB 4 forum, and I want to import it into XF 1.2 - no issues there. Currently, the VB forum is on a server in Australia, while the XF install is on a US-based server. I attempted an import last night, all went okay until I got to the Private Message import where it appeared to fall over. My question is if it is okay to import into XF when the source database is quite remote and the speed is not great? Or should I export the Database, import it to the XF local server, and run the import as localhost? Thanks.
