Code: Select all
It only does about 8000 rows at a time in 2000 row batches. (2000 x 4). I had 90k+ rows in my posts table alone and that took me a couple of hours. There doesn't seem to be a meta refresh like there is between steps.The system is very unintuitive, in my opinion and should be more user friendly. I found this thread when doing a google search for "phpbb3 step 16" as I was under the impression that the upgrade was hanging on step 16. What it is doing, though is only running a certain amount of rows at a time before you need to click "Continue conversion". Doing this numerous times and having it still stay on step 16. The process did not automatically refresh and continue through my 40k+ rows of posts.
If anyone feels they're hanging on step 16, jot down or remember what row it first said it was skipping. ie:
skip_rows = 1023
When you do 'Continue conversion' make sure the number is different (and higher) so you know it's not a matter of hanging at a certain step.
