Phpbb To Bbpress

normally i'm more of "ask for forgiveness later" sort of guy, but these are somewhat unfamiliar waters so i'm going to play it safe.

 

i would like to test a script i found at:

http://bbpress.org/forums/topic/a-phpbb-to...abase-converter

 

...which converts a phpbb dbase to bbpress dbase. a couple people in the linked thread mentioned this clogs the mysql queue, which their hosts did not care for. so i have 2 questions: can i run this script with my account on totalchoice, and if so, how do i got about doing that?

 

Thanks!

Thanks for asking :)

 

It's a weekend, so things are generally quiet. I'd suggest opening a ticket at the help desk - giving us the details, and ask us to keep an eye on things from the back end as you do it. Looking at the script it should be OK, but best if we watch it from the back end at the same time.

Thanks for the reply; let me ask you this before I get into ticket land:

It seems like my issue will be php memory allocation (amateur guess) - I see this error:

 

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 53072005 bytes) in /home/.../phpbb2bbpress.php on line 383

So would my ticket ask for more memory allocation? Also, is it reasonable to ask for this memory for a duration of time? I would like test and develop where I'm going with this script, but that could take a week or so with my day-to-day schedule.

Yes, if you post the error to the ticket we can increase your PHP memory allocation so your script can complete.
