  • VBUlletin 5 Question re License

    Hi there, I recently bought VBulletin and initially I have installed VBulletin 4 on a subfolder of my main site.

    I now want to take a look at VBulletin 5 and want to try and find out whether I can use this on a secondary domain to test. Once I am happy with it I will move the forum from the domain where it is currently to the domain where I will eventually want to move it.

    Is that possible with the license I have?

    Also how easy is it to import the old forum content on VB 4 to the new forum on VB 5?

    Your license is a vBulletin 5 Connect license so you can indeed download vB5.
    You can set up a test installation that is protected from public view by htaccess.

    My advice would be - set up this test installation as an exact mirror of your vB4 site, and then upgrade that test site to vB5.

    There are instructions on how to set up the test mirror in the Articles section.
