Why has a gallery import triggered a full forum rebuild?


Formerly CyclingTribe
Rebuilding users ....
Rebuilding threads ....

With 32,000+ members ... 160,000 threads ... and 3m+ posts this is taking some time (and wasn't expected).

Is this really necessary?

It's just what XenForo does. There's no totally feasible way of overriding it, unfortunately.

It should be ok to cancel it, though it's not recommended.

If you want to do it, the query is:

DELETE FROM xf_deferred WHERE unique_key = 'importRebuild';

Thanks Chris - it's completed now - it just threw me that it kicked-off rebuilding users and threads, it seemed unrelated to a media import.

No worries. All imported and up and running.
