    I'm using the old theme, since it's not broken inside the PM box navigation.

    that only happened when i switched boards from phpbb to this one...
    there wasn't a converter out back then

    THAT won't happen.
    the posts, although easy to back up, a BITCH to re-up to the database.
    our DB of JUST POST TEXT is about 35MB. 35MB text file folks.
    there's only 21,000 lines for the member file :) i can do that in about a half hour
    lmao

    php times out after 30 sec's of exe time... so basically, i have to sit there for 17-232 hours, chopping the 32 meg, 2000000 line file into about 1000 line segments, and up one at a time.
    thats what happened last time... and i missed shit in the middle....

    there's gotta be an easier way.... but i don't know of one.

    Any way to hack the value on the Timeout counter? Change it to 2400 or something so there's no worries?

    That's a pretty chitty system, if that's the ONLY way it works.

    its part of php. that way, the server doesn't get overloaded with 1 task for more than 30 seconds.

    it would work FINE if i could upload a 30MB file in 30 secs, but unfortunately, i don't have access to an OC-12
    lol

    Can you run the upload outside of the php system? Just upload the files via ftp and link them once they're on the server?

    not that i know of...
    the DB is NOT part of the ftp directory... there is no where to FTP into it.. its either DOS box telnet style system command, or web-interfact written in php to interact with the DB
    the upload has a browse button, crashes my computer for indexing a 30+mb file, and then tries to post the form data...
    it doesn't happen
