Migrate from MyBB through Vanilla

import

#1

Hi there, I’m trying to migrate a MyBB forum to Discourse through the Vanilla Porter app. When I run the importer, I get the following message and the script stops importing:

It’s possible that it’s running out of memory. Try doing the import on a better server (e.g. the 4GB memory), then taking a backup and restoring it on a 2GB server.

I fixed using the Mybb import script instead. Thanks anyway!
