Question on Conversion [Phpbb3 to IPB]
Posted 15 July 2012 - 10:27 PM
And how long, roughly -- does the conversion take? Moments or minutes?
Does anyone have any links to forums that have been converted?
I'm planning on buying IPB this week, so I'm just trying to get some information before purchase.

To put it in perspective, a small board (a few hundred topics/posts) should only take ~30minutes to convert and rebuild everything. I've been working on a conversion that has 1.35 million posts / 258k topics / 126k members... and locally that has been taking almost a full 24 hours from board offline to board online again.

Have been running on a free hosted phpBB3 board which has around 8000 posts, however they don't provide access to the DB or any method where you can back it up.
I plan on setting up some logic and screen scraping the site including posts and members into excel or XML format, so I can related each post to a member along with order of post.
The issue I have is as invision doesn't have an XML import option, how do I bridge the gap and get the data/posts into my hosted invision board?
