    you probably don't have gzip compiled in with php.

    i think you can just unzip the file you have manually.

    but it may be a moot point, since you can't find a non-ugly theme, and we would be wasting our time helping you since you already decided to switch to different forum software.

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.

  • well i didn't try unzip it, because porter just exported out a plain .txt file from smf2 .... its not small, so I dunno why it wasn't compressed.. you are right I can't find a non-ugly theme, still in the interest of testing out the software I was importing my other forum. Seems like a bug to fix if its not exporting a compressed file though.

  • "export__smf_2014-12-31_115920.txt" in the /uploads folder it shows in the importer fine just doesn't import

  • are you using ubuntu. or php 5.3

    you could try changing gzopen to gzopen64

    Do you get the same error or something different?

    that worked

  • File an issue on git hub.

    grep is your friend.

  • A better solution is to put in function.compatibility.php

    if(!function_exists('gzopen') && function_exists('gzopen64')){
        function gzopen($filename, $mode, $use_include_path = 0){
            return gzopen64($filename, $mode, $use_include_path);
        }
    }
    

    But this will need to be reported to get in the core.

    grep is your friend.

    I filed a pull request previously on the same day the issue was found, since I figured the op wouldn't,
    https://github.com/vanilla/vanilla/pull/2374 to at least allow option of gzopen64 ...

    It was not your code you can also file it. I also linked to this discussion, so @linc can change to what he desires obviously.

            }
        }
    

    therefore any time the gzopen is called regardless of where it is it will be defined.

    grep is your friend.
