Well if you run the import script and your data directories are not getting created then your paths or permissions have to be the issue. There really is no software change I can give you to make that work. Try checking your server error logs to see if you can spot any issues.
Also you can modify the import script and remove the @ off the front of the mkdir lines and run the import script and see if it prints any errors that might help.
This script has been around for along time and been used to import alot of sites.
Just a stab in the dark and I don't know if it would make a difference but the line that says No such file or directory in /home/xxxx/public_html/ has / before home I know it can make a difference when in SSH but I don't know where it's getting that from to try it.
That's a real shame: I purchased photopost because vbgallery isn't ready yet for vb4. And now instead of moving data (images) from vbgallery to photopost, it is copied. I don't have the needed 13gb spare on my server.
And then there's this 408 error......
I really hoped switching from vbgallery to photopost would be smooth. I will ask my webhost if I can borrow the needed extra webspace for just a few days.
There is not much I can post to help you in that regard.
You need to have the available space to do an import. The reason you cant just move the files is because what happens if there is an issue in the import.
The files are copied to photopost then you can easily delete vbgallery if you have a successful import. If you move files and have an issue with importing then both applications are messed up thats why files are never just moved.
Allright, my webhost was kind enough to double the available webspace, so I gave the importscript another try:
* all steps were processed (comments, exif, etc).
* at vbag.php?action=import_files nothing really happens until about 1 minute later I get the 408 error.
How come nothing happens until this timeout? I mean: what am I supposed to see during this part of the importprocess? A list of files being copied? If that's the case, why am I not seeing ANYTHING until the 408? During that minute there must be some sort action visible? This is the fourth time I run the complete process, and it keeps hanging on this step.
As soon as I press the 'Click here to import files' link, nothing happens, besides the 'waiting for [mywebsite]' message at the bottom of my browser (resulting in the timeout)
The Web server (running the Web site) thinks that there has been too long an interval of time between 1) the establishment of an IP connection (socket) between the client (e.g. your Web browser or our CheckUpDown robot) and the server and 2) the receipt of any data on that socket, so the server has dropped the connection. The socket connection has actually been lost - the Web server has 'timed out' on that particular socket connection. The request from the client must be repeated - in a timely manner.

You can send ftp info and url admin login for me to look at it but as previous stated you might need to get your web host to answer why you get that specific server error.
Excellent, thanks a lot
I have sent you the logindetails through the support contactforum (pm isn't possible).
By the way: eventhough I received this time out message, there have been images imported. The gallery shows the righ amount of images/MB's used, but most of the images give a 'no thumb' thumbnail, and after clicking no image (but with the right dimensions reserved).
yes and it should because you have sucessfully imported everything EXCEPT the files.
when I get into the office this morning I will check
Is there a way that I can see if the import process is finished or halted?
10hours ago I checked how much space was used in the gallery/data folder: 1018MB (gallery/files uses 12011MB). Now (10 hours later), this is still the same. I also see more 'no thumbnail' images, than working ones.
I decided to give vbag.php?action=import_files a spin myself and didn't show me anything but a timeout. The amount of diskspace used by gallery/data changed to 101gMB. So it did move some files until that timeout.
I am running this part of this script through my browser over and over, and after a few hours 400mb has been copied, despite the timeouts (and the lack of information the script is giving me). Is there a better way to run this script, copying those 79k (10gb) files?

well have you recieved a response on your issue from your host.
I mean I emailed you asking about that because your issue seems to be from the actual server limitations in trying to move that amount of content. The script already has ramped up PHP memory and a no timeout setting.
It seems a bit unclear to me whether vb4 is "fully" supported or not.
I really need some help here and I am getting a bit frustrated because the lines are blurred between vb3/vb4 when it comes to photopost. We all know that vb3 and vb4 are not compatible. The photopost software should treat vb3/vb4 as separate applications (just an opinion)
In any case, I have 2 issues. The first is...how the heck do I get the "gallery" button my vb4 toolbar?!
Second, when I run this importer script to import the pics loaded using vb4, I get the following:
Warning: mysql_num_rows(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource in /home/X/public_html/photozone/vbag.php on line 340
Importing 1 Categories.... please wait
Warning: mysql_fetch_array(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource in /home/X/public_html/photozone/vbag.php on line 348
