Is there a special strategy to import the content of a large wiki to another one using Special:Import, or will this require Staff assistance? The database dump seems to be too large to import. I am not me 13:37, March 16, 2012 (UTC)

Did you save teh datebase dump as a XML file? You can have with the lastest edit or with the entire history of it. I'm not sure if the Staff can help you with importing from one wiki to another. Which one are you cloning? Kittynator 15:15, March 16, 2012 (UTC)
