I'm trying to run this script going from vBulletin 4.0.7 to phpBB 3.0.14. Each time I run the script, it dies somewhere around post # 380000 and gives a 502 bad gateway error. The nginx error log shows:

Code: Select all

[error] 20853#20853: *138066 recv() failed (104: Connection reset by peer) while reading response header from upstream, client: (my laptop), server: myserver.com, request: "GET /phpBB3/install/index.php?mode=convert&sub=in_progress&tag=vb4&current_table=9&skip_rows=381934&language=en HTTP/1.1", upstream: "fastcgi://unix:/var/run/php5-fpm.sock:", host: "myserver.com", referrer: "http://myserver.com/phpBB3/install/index.php?mode=convert&sub=in_progress&tag=vb4&current_table=9&skip_rows=373683&language=en"
Any help would be very much appreciated.

I had a post with a very long unbroken string of characters. I replaced the content of it and it's carrying on fine.

help with converter getting stuck on post

Post by fiat-scotland »

hello

my post was moved last time to a dead thread kind of annoying

the problem is when i run the converter and it starts to move the posts over it gets about 30 posts in and just stops the next post i have edited to just say edited in it so there should be no fouling posts left but the converter just stops and goes no further any help other than moving this thread would be much appreciated :D

I am having the exact same issue. I noticed a few others are as well.

Anyone have any ideas or thoughts that could break this conversion logjam? Thanks.

The script you guys are using is for phpbb3.0 if you have phpbb3.1 installed its not going to work

It would be nice if someone updated it to work with the new version.
