Got turned onto Magmi, a database importer - runs waaaaay faster than dataflow. Trying to import a file with 18k products, and will be importing a delta every night with up to 15k changes.

Categories Issue
Seems to import perfectly, except for my multiple categories that I am importing to. Seems to be going to any old random place. Any help would be great - trying to get this guys site up and live by New Years.

Plugins enabled:

Import Report Mail Notifier v1.0.0
Magmi Optimizer v1.0.5
Magmi Magento Reindexer v1.0.2

Semicolon Delimited file sample below: (Note that I am trying to assign it to the 2, 35, and 36 categories in the 5th (category_ids) field.)

All products Issue

Seems to be hanging after 2-3k products. Does them in about 2 minutes, then seems to hang forever!

Thanks so much for any help you can provide!

check your webserver configuration.
If you’re using php-fpm and nginx try to set fastcgi_buffers higher than defaults.
