      Security patches, I would imagine so.

      There will be no further bug fixes or feature releases though.

          I hit this error too.

          After installing PHP 5.6 my site just white paged and so I had to roll back to VB4.2.4 to get it up again for now. Other non VB sites on the same server seem unaffected.

            • Not working on PHP 7.1.3

              Database error

              • It works perfectly well on php 7.1.3.

                You must sort out your database error.

                • Went from 4.2.1 to 4.2.5 yesterday with ZERO issues!

                  I first asked my host, URLJet, to upgrade MySQL to version 5.6.35 > then I downloaded vB 4.2.5 from here and uploaded it to my server > went to run the upgrade script and ran into an error page due to my outdated PHP version (Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '*' in /yoursite/includes/functions.php on line 1576), so popped into my cPanel and used PHP Selector to upgrade to PHP 7.1.4 > then was able to run the vB upgrade script flawlessly without a hiccup > upgraded to vBadvanced CMPS 4.3.0

                  Everything works great, noticed a speed boost in page load times and a major drop in server load. Thanks for all your help and answering my questions prior to the upgrade. vB support team, you rock!

                  Now to save up a few bucks and upgrade to vB5!

                  • So, the correct path would be FIRST updating to PHP 7.x and THEN upgrading vBulletin, otherwise the upgrade script would not work. Did I understand correctly?

                      Yes, that's correct.

                      You need to do the two in close succession though, as your existing forum won't work on php 7.

                      Best to close the site, back up database, upgrade php, upgrade vBulletin, open site.

                      • Yup, that is exactly what I am going to do. Since I have other software running on the server, I hoped I could upgrade the PHP interpreter last, so I am going to alter slightly my plans. But the vBulletin steps will be as you advised.

                        Thank you.

                          You can always use php 5.6 if that helps. 4.2.5 works with that.

                          • actually now I am getting a problem after switching to PHP 7.x

                            if I keep it on 5.6.x it works as before, if I use 7.0.x or 7.1.x I get the old syntax error: unexpected '*' in functions.php on line 1576 (that should not happen unless I am running a version lower than 5.6, what could be wrong with php7?)

                            • I *think* that the problem might be in old add-ons I still have, that I cannot absolutely remove without breaking my site structure and SEO (i.e. the old VBSEO). Still, I am curious to know why I get that syntax error on a core vBulletin file instead of getting another kind of error.

                              • As I mentioned above....old add ons may not be compatible with php 7.

                                You should not use vBSEO anyway. It was abandoned years ago, it is riddled with security holes, and it certainly isn't compatible with php 7.
