SMF to IPB attachments problem
Posted 03 August 2012 - 07:32 PM
So converting from SMF to IP board and I've tried this 5 times with the same result. I can find the attachments folder and it starts to convert, but then at 60% the screen just goes white and the conversion stops at exactly 60%.
The images in the attachments folder for SMF is 1.7 gig roughly (nature photography forum) so is that size a problem of does the IP board need to have a folder somewhere increased in size from the admin area.
I'm sure I will have more questions for the experts, but I try and solve most things my self with searches.
All the best folks and thanks for the time.

Tried it another few times and still it only gets to exactly 60%
All the best lucy and thanks.

Just frustrating when I've tried this at least a dozen times now. Should I set up a ticket for the problem ??. Trying not to annoy them is all
Thanks for your time.

had same issue with smf conversion 2 yrs ago, php memory limit and max execution times needed to be raised for me.
Brilliant. Took a look at a couple of log errors and yes, exactly it. So how do I go about that, any ideas and which php it is.
All the best and a huge thanks

Unfortunately, the php memory limit and max execution time are settings that can not be increased on our servers. You may need to download the files and do you conversion locally, then re-upload the new IP board site to the server.

So it looks like I might have to try this another way. I'll slowly create folders on the server for the IPB upload folder from another attachments folder in the root. I've pruned a lot of attachments to make it easier, shame but I can't think of another way around it.
Anyway, thanks for the help. Nice to know you folks are here
All the best folks.

then convert that folder and it adds the images to whats already there in the uploads folder of IPB. Rebuild the topics and a couple of other clicks and its working. Sounds complicated, but after the first try, its easy . So at least this way the posts are showing the correct attachments. Also at that quantity of images, its not crashing at 60%, phew.
All the best and thanks for in here. Shame hostpapa can't help out. Never mind.
