In which case can't you just reduce the number of records it processes at once as per Acyd's note a few pages back?

No, just the same. I changed $batch_size to 500 and $num_wait_rows to 5 but still tried to allocate 1179857 bytes.

So.. what the fuc* is wrong with my conversor...
Its just me?

Im working on this... for more than 10 hours...

phpbb2 as u see now, this morning was phpbbfm... i have recovered all tables from phpbbfm pass it to ipb.. and then to phpbb2.22

now i have a clean vanilla install and there is no reason for this conversor not to work with me.

I had both phpBB installations using the same database just having different prefixes, is that how you're trying or do you have seperate mySQL databasess?


Hi Klors,

I have separated databases... could this be the issue?

Best reg,

alycad, the convertor is clearly nothing for you. I would wait until beta5 before testing anything.

Same problem here :(

The table prefix needs to be the one used by the software you are converting from.
» Specified table prefix was phpbb_


config.php

Code: Select all

<?php


// phpBB 2.x auto-generated config file
// Do not change anything in this file!

$dbms = 'mysql4';

$dbhost = 'localhost';
$dbname = 'benchfrooser_de';
$dbuser = 'root';
$dbpasswd = 'root';

$table_prefix = 'phpbb_';

define('PHPBB_INSTALLED', true);

?>

Did you put the phpBB3 and the phpBB2 in the same database?

dear lovely developers,

we're running a 2.x with 6000+ users and 125000+ posts.
we would like to upgrade to 3.x.

I've tested the convertation script on the web maschine, failed due to a 500 error.
I've tried to import the db locally but phpMyAdmin takes hours to import 1.741.172 "phpbb_search_wordmatch"s .

So please release a stable convertation interface for large boards,
or - much more prefered - some proc that can be runned by SSH.


greetings, Till
