Not tried it yet, as I have to go out to work in a moment.

Can the converter be set to put the phpbb3 tables in a separate database? I'd rather have a separate test version of the board in a separate folder for now, especially since I'm using mod-rewrite on my live board for 'friendly' URLs.

Separate database, no. Separate tables within the same db, of course! that's the way it works. Also, you can (should/must) place phpBB3 files in a different folder than phpBB2.

Filling table B5_posts:

skip_rows = 0:

skip_rows = 2000:
170 rows/s (2000 rows) |

skip_rows = 4000:
177 rows/s (2000 rows) |

skip_rows = 6000:
177 rows/s (2000 rows) |

is that suppose to be good or bad? o_O?

Good, it is processing 2000 rows at a time (so the script doesn't time out and there is enough memory available to the script).

So, each new message tells you that another 2000 rows have been converted successfully and we are at a total of so and so rows. The "170 rows/s" (as in 170 rows per second) just tells you how fast the script was to process these 2000 rows.

If someone feels strong enough to make this clearer (as in using a more descriptive text instead of variable display), please add a bug to the tracker. ;)

Is it possible to make something a little more sophisticated, like a progress bar, or just something that says "XX% completed"?
The total number of posts to be handled should be retrievable from old tables, isn't it?
