  • [Forum] Vb4

    Been using this forum for a few days now. Assuming this forum uses the new VB4, I think it works rather well. Looks alot better too!

    I've been using VB3 as a user (not admin/owner) for many years. Cant really fault it.

    Anyway, Im not an owner of VB3! However, I'm tempted to upgrade to VB4!!

    I'm wondering whether I should wait a while longer or just jump in for the download?

    Thanks in advance!

      lol

      Yes you can. Just looking for a bit of advice I guess.

      I'd ask how stable it was but iirc it (The Gold Version) was only released yesterday!

          If your primary reason to go with vB4 is the CMS, I'd wait.
          The forum is fine.

            No idea about the CMS stuff. All I'm interested in is the Forum.

            The cool thing is that my forum isnt live yet..... So i guess you could say i have nothing to loose.......

              Do it now.

              The quicker you learn the new stylevars and template format, the easier it will be for you down the road.

              No sense in learning obsolete ways.. ESPECIALLY if your board is not live.

                I've spotted a possible error in the manual

                vBulletin 4 Installation / Upgrade reads

                Upgrading from vBulletin 3.8.4

                .....Then open the 'upload/includes/' folder.....
                It fails the mention the need to update the config file!

                I assume one still needs to do this!

                  Yes.
                  I always compare my old config file to the latest version anyway.

                    Right ive updated the config and attempted to run the upgrade -

                    The following error has appeared:

                    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STATIC, expecting T_OLD_FUNCTION or T_FUNCTION or T_VAR or '}' in /home/sites/DOMAIN/public_html/forums/includes/class_core.php on line 1380

                    Any idea what Ive done wrong. I managed to get 3.8 running just fine.

                        I think im going to go crazy

                        Ive decided to start everying over from the start. Followed the manual and everything.

                        Upon running the install... the following appears:


                        Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '{' in /home/sites/domain.co.uk/public_html/forums/install/install.php on line 332

                        Is this an error on my part or is there a fault?

                          Right looks as though my version of php doesnt meet the min requirements (I have PHP5). VB4 Requires PHP5.2 or higher.

                          Not sure how I go about upgrading this. Is it a long job? If it is then I may just stick with VB3 for now.
