  • Import to new server - old link to threads not matching

    Hi guys,

    just changed company that managed the server so i did an import.
    I have this problem :

    For example this old link in previous forum

    now imported on 4.2.1
    does not match to old topic, but it brings to an other thread
    Anyway to fix this issue?
    I have over 20k+ threads so would like it to be an overall problem during impex import.

    This is why we don't recommend using ImpEx to move or upgrade and provide an upgrade script. The only way to restore your old URLS is to restore your database backup and use the upgrade script provided with vBulletin 4.2.1 in the install directory.

    ImpEx is specifically for and limited to importing content from other forum packages or merging to vBulletin websites into one website.
