You see something like this: Your system or network configuration does not allow Drupal to access web pages. This could be due to your webserver configuration or PHP settings.
HTTPRL - Core drupal_http_request()
You then go into your httprl config: /admin/config/development/httprl

And set the field "IP Address to send all self server requests to" to -1

Import Data From External Source To Drupal

Submitted by Greg Nowak on 2015-10-01

I have a couple of SMF forum sites I wan't to replace with Drupal, but there is a considerable amount of content, why I started to speculate if it could be done programmatically (semi automatic magic). I found a couple of outdated modules for merging data from SMF to PHPBB and then from PHPBB to Drupal. I tried that route once but did not succeed. The thing I would love to see is a transformation of the table data in the SMF database to CSV and then import it with the standard import module for Drupal Migrate.
