after finishing members,topics,boards and went to posts it converted the 150.000 from 300.000 posts and i got this error

Converting posts (this may take some time)...
MySQL server has gone away

i use localhost

//edit

tried to re - convert only posts and again

Converting posts (this may take some time)...
MySQL server has gone away

ThorstenE

in ipb3_to_smf.sql find:
---* {$to_prefix}messages 200
---{


replace with:
---* {$to_prefix}messages 25
---{
$ignore =  true;


then re-run the converter.

Ventic

why that happens

edit:new error

Converting posts (this may take some time)...
Got a packet bigger than 'max_allowed_packet' bytes

Do you have access to the mysql configuration file my.cnf? then you could modify the parameter max_allowed_packet_size...

Elsewise we can try to decrease the amount of concurrent imported posts to avoid this error.

find
---* {$to_prefix}messages 25
change to
---* {$to_prefix}messages 10

Ventic

cause it's converting slower the posts now i am able to change any configuration in order not to get the same error for mysql?

IPB is in ISO (latin1), SMF in UTF8.

But Polish characters can be easily fixed in Notepad++. Bigger problem are this broken emoticons links.
In IPB database it is saved as:
<img src='http://example.com/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/125.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />
after conversion:
<img src=\\''http://example.com/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/125.gif\\'' class=\\''bbc_emoticon\\'' alt=\\'':)\\'' />

or links in signature (after finished conversion):

<p>[center][url=\\\\\\\"http://example.com\\\\\\\"][img]http://img803.imageshack.us/img803/4601/smfpluserbarv3.png[/img][/url]<br />

got the same problem.what to do

ThorstenE

character issues are mostly related to the source forum's character set. I suspect your IPB was installed with UTF-8. Please try to install SMF with UTF-8 (you can choose that in install.php) and use UTF-8 as character set for the converter.

Ventic

from the converter i used utf - 8 character

SMF needs to be installed with UTF-8 support too,or we have a mixed structure which results in charset issues.

Ventic

i did that again

same problem again.greek chars appears like chinese

ThorstenE

mhh, please go to admin - maintenance - database and use the maintenance task "convert HTML entities to UTF8-Characters".. hopefully that one fixes your charset issues.
