[Solved] After migrating phpbb how to deactivate Go2wpForo
I've migrated a large phpBB for wpForo. So glad the tool works.
After finishing the migration and checking the results I tried to deactivate the Go2wpForo plugin. It takes so long to deactivate that it results in a 500 server error. Any insight or suggestions on what needs to happen here? I guess I don't need the migration plugin anymore, but what about the tables it leaves behind and the steps needed to deactivate the plugin?
Thanks for any help.
Thank you for the responses. I already had the php max_execution_time set pretty high.
When I return to the plugin page after the 500 server timeout the plugin is still active. So I guess the deactivation process isn't quite finishing the work it's meant to. Can I manually delete the plugin with ftp? If so, what unnecessary data can I remove from the database?
I'm really happy with how the plugin did it's job. But I would like to remove it now that the work is done.
Giving this another try.
I still can't deactivate the Go2wpForo plugin. Clicking the deactivate plugin link results in a 500 server error after long timeout. I check the database and nothing is cleared out. I'd really like to know what unnecessary data a successful deactivation is supposed to remove. I can go into phpMyAdmin and remove it myself if I know what to drop.
Thank you, Robert. 👍
