RE: Mybb to Nodebb migration
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
NodeBB from MyBB
Hi, we unsuccessfully tried to port our community to NodeBB from MyBB. Since there is no direct converter we tried first exporting to phpBB3 and then using the importer from NodeBB but, after it finished, the tool told us there was "something" wrong. And although it did port the users, the forums and posts are not there.
We don't really have the time to write a full import tool but we are considering writing an exporter and we have a few questions: We only want our users, posts, topics and forums. So, what is the bare minimum necessary to do that? I mean, is it mandatory to export permissions, user roles, user groups, friend lists, etc etc? Or can we just populate the database with users, then insert the posts and manually configure user groups and permissions from NodeBB?
I hope the question is clear.
Thank you for reading.
