Congrats, man! Good job. :D I hope this mod helps your forum.
Thanks - we all appreciate that here. We hope it does too. We will report back once we complete the conversion and put in the rest of your code.

Hi again - we have gotten through to about 2230000 posts but due to some settings on our webserver for performance we are having a hard time getting through this via a browser. Is there a way you can output some code to use that can be run in a cron job that will do all of this via command prompt instead of web browser?

Thanks

PHP, as you may know, can be run from the command line, and thus, from a cron job. If you set a no expiry time limit, you may be able to get the script to run as long as it needs, without having the bother of needing a web browser.

If by "output some code" you mean write it in a different language, then I can't really help there, since I know PHP the best. Drathbun might be able to help, since he knows Perl.
Moof!

We tried running the file via the command line as we do with various other functions on the site and for some reason it is saying it cannot run the file????

Well, I can tell you some potential, obvious reasons, but you might already know these:
1.) It probably needs a shebang at the top
2.) It probably needs executable permissions

Other than that, I don't know. I've only run 2 or 3 PHP scripts by the command line before (and I didn't write them), so I'll take a look later today and see about this one.
