I finally managed to import my old vbulletin forums into my bbPress forums on my new network.
While we had managed to get snapshot to work prior to importing everything, I have noticed that now there is a fair amount of data that the plugin is getting stuck.
I only have 28k members so it's not large by any standards, but my usermeta table does have 886,443 rows, which even then isn't that large.
The problem is that snapshot hits this table to backup and just stalls out. The real issue is that it is SO SLOW doing the backup that you can virtually guarantee that there is going to be new usermeta added to the table during the download period.
Can we come up with a much faster way of backing up the tables for medium sized sites?
I can tar up the entire 256 dbs in under a second or two, yet this ran for 30 mins before dying.
*For Now I will simply skip the users and user meta tables and use snapshot for backing up the other stuff to dropbox. I do a cron tar for the real backups so I am covered.
suppose I am mostly just reporting another issue is all. Guessing this is not a tool used on edublogs.... so if they don't need it, I don't.
