@gotwf The fact that webpack takes 50-odd seconds is actually a travesty... I remember early versions of NodeBB you'd run node app and your NodeBB would be serving requests in under 2 seconds 😄 good ol' days.
Mybb to Nodebb migration
You need to install nodebb-plugin-import from NodeBB AdminCP.
nodebb-plugin-import and nodebb-plugin-import-mybb are installed and activated. Menu for plugin-import is working, menu for plugin-import-mybb gives the following error:
"/admin/plugins/import-mybb Not found
You seem to have stumbled upon a page that does not exist. Return to the home page."
I would just uninstall the mybb plugin and install just nodebb-plugin-import, then follow the directions on the readme (to bring your NodeBB to the correct commit) and then use the ACP interface. It should download the correct mybb plugin for you
Thanks for the support. Starting convert and crashes with the following logs (newest on top):

Looks like your MySQL database do not accept connections from the host with NodeBB installed. Check your configuration - IP/host, username, password and port number.
I've spent all night trying to export our forum to NodeBB to no avail. I've followed the guids step by step but I just can't manage to do it.
Here's what I've done:
Installed everything in a 512mb droplet. Failed miserably to export. The proccess just was killed or I received a redis write error (also followed the steps to modify the config and didn't solve it for me)
Upgraded to 1GB and when I try to flush it gets stuck at 5% when purging users. Doesn't matter if I keep or rollback the config made to redis.
Set up a VM and reinstalled everything there (locally)
The import process just stops. No errors, nothing. I'vetried leaving all DB fields blanks and still doesn't even report connection errors.
Can someone help us? Our forum is medium sized, just the export is about 300mb
