Lithium Studios Question

Hello all, I don't know if I'm going to get an answer here, but I can't seem to post my question anywhere else as it pertains the User Blog Mod written by Lithium Studios. This is NOT a question for support....but more of a question of whether or not...so hopefully someone here will have the answer ...

Re: Converting from phpBB2 to phpBB3

Well here I go.....doing the conversion for real. I still haven't found an easy way to narrow down the posts that are causing problems, but I'll use this method above to see if it makes it easier. Thanks for the help....wish me luck. :)

Re: Converting PM failed (phpbb2 -> phpbb3)

Any chance you could share that script to find the largest posts? I'm having the same problem with 356410 posts in my database....very time consuming to go through one at a time.

Re: Converting from phpBB2 to phpBB3

OK, so I just finished doing another "test" conversion on my local machine and got around the errors above....but I still can't pinpoint the exact posts that are causing the problem, based on the information that I'm given. It seems that if I show 20 records, starting from the record that it craps o...

Re: phpBB2 > phpBB3 conversion issue

So I was having an issue where I would get a 500 internal server error when converting a phpBB2 MySQL database to phpBB3. After poking around on the forums I followed the instructions at: http://www.phpbb.com/kb/article/offline-conversions/ Same issue though. Once I get to: http://127.0.0.1/phpBB3/...

Re: Converting from phpBB2 to phpBB3

No, once the conversion stops, I need to go into the database and try to find the record that is causing the problem...but I don't know what to look for. If I use the record that it indicates when it crashes, I know it's the phpbb_posts table (table 16), but leaving the records in order and just goi...

Re: Converting from phpBB2 to phpBB3

OK, I don't see anything wrong with any of these posts it's getting stuck on....yet....when I arbitrarily delete from the what the URL says is the offending (3 or 4 records after it....according to phpMyAdmin), it starts again. In the install_convert.php, I've set the following.... // Batch size, ca...

Re: Converting from phpBB2 to phpBB3

I dunno either. I've changed to WAMP and I'm getting the same problem. Seems there is something in my database....somewhere....that is causing the problem. I actually dropped the phpbb_posts table and ran the conversion and it worked right to the end. Unfortunately, it's the posts that I need. :( I ...

Re: Converting from phpBB2 to phpBB3

Are they the "exact" lines I put in there? I did this and the convert didn't work. When I take them out, it works....but still seems to hang. I'm at my wits end with this. I don't see anything wrong with the posts, I've optimized, repaired, ran locally, but it still seems to time out. :cry: :( I'm r...

Re: Converting from phpBB2 to phpBB3

OK, I'll delete those rows and try it again.

Sorry, but you mention I could make the limits -1 "unlimited"......I found the first 2 in the php.ini file, but I don't know where the last 2 are. Which file or files are you referring to?

Thanks for all your help by the way. It is appreciated.

Re: Converting from phpBB2 to phpBB3

well it was slower....which was expected with the lower batch number, but this time it looks like it stopped at row 62978. With a batch of 10, can I assume the problem is between 62978 abd 62988? When I look at these though with phpMyAdmin in both the posts table and posts_text table, I don't see an...
