I am trying to use the phpBB 2 --> FUD 2.6.x conversion script to convert a large modified phpBB 2.0.13 forum to FUD 2.6.12. I did this successfully for a small forum, but with a large forum, the page tries to load for a few minutes (and both Apache and MySQL are working hard during that time) but after a few minutes the loading just stops and nothing is displayed in the browser.

Nothing is actually imported into FUD.

I tried editing the php.ini file to allow for really long execution times and lots of memory usage, but it still doesn't work.

The phpBB forum has 600+ members and 8000+ articles with about 250 smilies.

Has anyone ever gotten such a large phpBB forum successfully converted?

Many people have, I have done so many times personally for various clients. The problem in your case is that you have quite a bit of data and PHP has execution time limit, that restricts the duration of time for which a script can run. The solution can be either to run the script via the command line or increase this limit.

Yes, running the script from the shell did the trick, now if only the converter converted all the member groups I had set up... Wink
