  • [Forum] Upgrade to V4 from 3.8.4 and also translation file XML

    I like to set upgrade from 3.8.4 to V4 with blog version.

    Is there any issue with upgrade and how to proceed? Is it better to start on complete new instalallation or upgrade is performed without any open issue?

    Will translation file (export) work if i decide to install completely new version V4?

    You cannot use the vB 3.8 Blog in vB4 Forums. You can only upgrade it to the vB4 Suite.

        Upgrade, a new installation will result in loss of all your data (users, posts, threads...).

            "translation file transformation" ? I assume you're referring to a custom language?

            For upgrade procedure, please see the articles here:

              Yes, I have checked. So, all is automatic regarding translation. It is not needed not translate file again as translation will be moved to new forum version upgrade?

                There will be new phrases added in vB4 that won't be translated if you're using a custom language file. You will need to check our languages forum for a new version of your language for the version you're going to upgrade to.

                  Another issue:
                  If I have to set new forum on another domain but like to use the same old translation file, can be this managed to
                  1. copy database (content files, folders) and
                  2. purchase new license to be all correct for license with
                  3. upgrade to new version from VB 3.8.4.

                  Is this better or I simply
                  1. buy new license, install new version V4 and
                  2. add translation XML file to new domain?

                  What is better clean way from VB point but translation file is time consuming.

                    I'm a little confused with what you mean by 'translation XML file'. However I think you mean upgrade from 3.8.4 to vB4. If so, the first set of instructions it the way to go.

                      Regarding translation file this is main issue as export of file for language is in the XML format.

                      In other words this file is main issue as I like to know if file for 3.8.4. will also work in upgrade. So, I'm thinking in two ways:
                      1. The same forum on different domain and language file which will be kept the same during upgrade. As I understand some additional translation will be needed.
                      2. Completely new installation and import of old version language file (translation file XML) into new forum version and some additional translation should be implemented.

                      This is my worry...
