  • Upgrading from 4 to 5

    I'm currently using version 4, the latest. But I would like to upgrade to 5 (also the latest) as I have it. But the upgrading process is slightly confusing to me. Is there anyone who could break the process down step by step to help out?
    They see me trollin' they hatin.

    The upgrade process is almost exactly the same as upgrading vBulletin 4.x.
    1. Turn off your vBulletin 4 forums.
    2. Create a database backup
    3. Upload the vBulletin 5 files to a new directory on your server.
    4. Rename /config.php.bkp to config.php
    5. Rename /core/includes/ to /core/includes/config.php
    6. Edit your database information (the file looks just like the vB4 config.php file).
    7. Run /core/install/upgrade.php
    These steps are also listed in the vb5readme.html file.
