    1. you have ssh2 telnet access
    2. your vB 3.x forums are only using MySQL default MyISAM/Memory tables with NO InnoDB tables

For example, there might be a really popular post in the forums, but unfortunately it is buried inside page 13 of a thread. We will now have an option (if you have permissions) to “promote” a forum (or blog) post as a new artic...
