OK, I've finally got my import working, (Running php7 from the command line for phpbbcli.php).
I have issues with how a lot of the posts are rendered, because they need to be reparsed.
Obviously, they need to be reparsed, but given the number of posts on the board, more than 500K, running this from the command line would take something north of 12 hours, and I've spent enough time staring at the screen, thank you very much.
I do know that the board also runs the reparser as a cron job if set properly (remove all the locks, and in the ACP go to General > server settings > Run periodic tasks from system cron set to "No").
Given the number of posts, I am assuming that it will be a few days/weeks before everything is reparsed.
Is there anything I can look at to indicate the progress of the reparsing? I am sure that some impatient users will want updates.
I should note that I have shell access on my server provider, so if a progress file is stored somewhere, I could look at that,
On edit 2:
The 500k is number of posts, not the size of the database. The total size of the phpbb_posts table is around 850 meg.
