I'm planning to move from phpbb to vbulletin forum with a forum that i recently bought.
The sql file size of the forum is 9.5GB!! Would this cause a problem with vbulletin?

Thanks for the information and time.

I have heard of larger databases. It that in addition to a huge directory of attachments/images or are all the images stored in the database? The fun is going to be importing that database. :)

prolly all the images etc are store in the db, thats why its soooooo huge...
importing it would be a real challenge yea... prolly need to break it into pieces...

hope that converting it from phpbb to vbul wont bring any complications...

extract all the data fron the database into the file system before thinking about importing the sql file.

This spares you a lot of headaches, believe me.
