Thanks a lot, David,
I left it running now for approx. 5 days !!! Finally it finished : 17
The problem is that you're using InnoDB and
reindexing at every insert.
No, i used MyISAM tables. I need to use MyISAM for fulltext indexing.
See my next post.
But you are probably right:
Disable the keys on page/text/revision
will resolve the problem.
I won't try that now, as i am happy enough to be able to go on with enwiki.
Btw. perl mwimport worked like a charm for dewiki, itwiki, frwiki , but
not for enwiki.
