    Imho are here too many answers possible. You do not tell relevant extra information as in the amount of queries/memory/kind of server(shared/dedicated) it uses and so on. I can imagine that your db says.. sorry.. timeout, too many queries at once, not enough memory and so on because you talk about a db with a huge amount of posts(assuming it has also a certain amount of images). 200k posts are imho a lot and normaly needs a good configured server with enough cpu power/enough memory and more. It also depends on used "tools".(lazy load, Caching progs and so on) So a little more info maybe?

  • Btw, did the import go flawless, did you run an optimize db job, what does the log tell(debug.log/server error logfiles).
