Allow Conversion process to take place via CLI

Recommended Posts

Given the length of time taken for a relatively mature forum on a different provider (e.g. vBulletin) to convert to Invision - a forum I run with around 2.5 million posts has taken two and a half days, for example - would it not be prudent to offer the conversion process as a CLI command? This would allow the server the site is to be hosted on to be utilised to its maximum in terms of memory usage, and would also prevent the need for the site admin to have a browser tab open on the conversion process for the entirety of the operation.

It's not practical for popular sites to need to go down for days in order to convert and hopefully improve the experience for its users - anything that can be done to speed up the conversion process should be embraced.
