  • Upgrade to Version 4

    HI All i hope this is the correct place

    I have a forum that's been running since 2009 with a version of 3.8 on it, we bought a licence for a second forum we had for a short period and this is now dead oi n the water so want to re use it on a the still active site

    Obviously with a forum that has been running for a number of years its had Plugins installed and other non VB software from the site,

    we would like to almost start a fresh and import the data posts threads users etc but not all the other stuff that is pretty much dead addons now

    what is the best way i found this link

    is the above the best way to do this i would be putting it on my test server first so can play around etc but its been years since i did all this type of stuff so any help is greatly appreciated, the other thought we had was to migrate to a fresh version of Vb5

    we have a lot of activity via face book and would rather drive it back to the forum not sure if the jump to V5 would help this

    Many thanks

      You are best to simply uninstall or disable all current products and plugins, and then upgrade the site.

      Don't get hung up on 'cleaning up the database' and suchlike - it offers no real benefit.
