Discourse Import - vanilla.rb or vanilla_mysql.rb


(Dylan Burkhardt) #1

I am looking at migrating my forum from Vanilla to Discourse and see that there are two migration scripts. One that uses MySQL and one that uses a CSV dump file.

Which is recommended and which will create the fewest headaches moving forward?

I too want to move away from Vanilla.

It was initally extremely happy with it. But it’s just to flakey and discourse seems amazing.

Please share any success stories!

I migrated successfully using the import script that uses porter rather
than MySQL. Would recommend it!
