My situation is, I am attempting an experimental launch by introducing the information into SMF 1.1.16 operating regionally on wamp. The objective is I want to observe and comprehend the whole thing earlier then I will create the ultimate choice to shift to SMF, buy web host, and make it run. This indicates that I efficiently brought in the categories_fourms.sql and associates.sql SQL set information files. But when I try to transfer the topics_posts_smf.sql information file, I get the following error:
Any sort of help or suggestion from your end will be very helpful for me. Thank you in advance for your attention.
Problem in my experiment in SMF 1.1.16
The error that is shown in the picture you attached is reflecting that either the database or the table that you are trying to import is either empty or it is exceeding the required maximum size allowed for the import.
Since you have already specified that the database is not empty so the only thing remains is the size issue.
First see the FAQs to make sure the allowed size is what. Then go to the old database and split it up into pieces such that every piece is a little lower than the maximum size allowed.
Now simply start importing it piece by piece.
Once imported all pieces, merge them together or copy all the records to 1 place only.
