    A. If you're going to be running on two different servers, you would need to use the IP address or a different domain tot est on the new one until you switch over. The following article gives instructions on how to create a test site - if you use the IP or other domain in the first step when backing up the database, this will let you transfer it over to the new server:

    B. minimum - 4.1.0. Recommended - 5.0.19 or newer

    Thank you for your help. Two more items:


    A. I would like to have further details about #3 I would like to test on the new server while the old forum is still live. Can I do this, and if so, how?

    An answer was provided of you can create a directory name 'testvb' it must be private access and password protected.

    Can someone point me towards documentation with details on what this means as it brings up more questions (i.e. what directory name would be changed?, how do you make "it" private access and "what" would I be making private access? "what" would be password protected? won't I lose my links to other posts if I change the name of the forum?, etc)


    B. And is there a recommended MySQL version to use with vBulletin 4.2 and Windows Server 2012 64bit?



    Thank you!

    Joyce

    I have no idea what the above staff member is on. While it might "work" it is not fully compatible.

    1. vBulletin 4.2 will work with PHP 5.4 ?

    You'll need to turn off notices and depreciated error reporting. Turning off error_display is normally better.
    We have an old GD bug that got fixed in PHP 5.4, you may need to use ImageMagick instead for the time being.
    There have been a few reports of issues with the ckeditor as well.

    PHP 5.3 would be best, both applications run on php 5.3 without issue.

    2. No just it must be the same forum URL.

    3. you can create a directory name 'testvb' it must be private access and password protected.

    Questions on moving to a new physical server

    I have been reviewing http://www.vbulletin.com/docs/html/moving_servers but have questions:

    Am presently running 4.2.0 (we do not plan on upgrading to 5 yet) on Windows Server 2003 32 bit using PHP 5.2.13 and mySQL 5.1.47


    1. The new server will be Windows Server 2012 64bit - is there any issues running vbulletin and PHP 5.4 and MySQL with this operating system?

    2. The new server will have a new ip address - does something have to be done with vbulletin account, our licensing, etc to allow for this?

    3. I would like to test on the new server while the old forum is still live.
    Can I do this, and if so, how?


    if anyone can point me towards documentation that answers these or provide answers, that would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you

    We are moving to a new server with the same provider and was hoping to get some guidance on next steps. We have an existing Win 2008 R2 server with Rackspace and copied an image with all our vB data and...
