Import generates error "Table 'vanilla.GDN_zUser' doesn't exist"

I want to migrate from FluxBB to Vanilla. I cloned the VanillaPorter and duplicated the PunBB class to generate a FluxBB export class.

When I want to upload the resulting file to my Vanilla installation (Version I get the following error:

Table 'vanilla.GDN_zUser' doesn't exist|Gdn_Database|Query|show columns from 'GDN_zUser'

Any ideas how to get past this error?

EDIT: This error only seems to be generated when choosing the "Create SQL Script" option instead of doing the import for real.

    Welcome to the community!

    The tables prefixed by a lowercase z are temporary tables created by the porter, IIRC. Is everything else working?

    Don't choose the "Create SQL Script" option. Just run it.
