Hey,

the script is not optimized and it hit the memory limit of your system.

Increase the memory limit. You have 128MB, try with 512MB.

is this a change in the SCRIPT (if so where) or a system/host setting?

no, that would be a server setting. if you are doing this on your computer then you need to raise the memory limit . if you are doing this on your hosting server then you need to contact the host and ask them about it.

Ok thanks, I'll contact the host, but I'm pretty sure I know the answer they will give :)

I also know the answer you'll get :)

Do the complete copy of your production system eg. on your laptop and run the conversion there. Then upload the result to production.

google for xamp . that will allow you to install the basic apahe/php/phpmyadmin/mysql on your computer.

then you can install both boards and make the convertsion as he said.

ok, i got the conversion done and imported. I re-syncronized all the forums, and i see all of the topics when i click on a forum, but none of the posts show up (although in the database i see the posts)

did i miss some other type of sync?

Unfortunately, I don't remember exactly. I used it last back in 2009 :-)

Try to newly grant access rights in the admin panel.
