  • Where did Backup / Restore Settings link go in VB5?

    VB4 had a link for Backup / Restore Settings in plain view at Settings > Options > vBulletin Options. I'm working on a test upgraded VB5 version and that link is nowhere to be found in VB5, nor can I find it anywhere in the software or by diligently searching. Part of this reason is I wish to locate this is I want to purchase another license for a closely related site and could save myself a lot of time by importing those settings vs. copying one at a time. Is there no way to import/export Options settings in VB5 other than a physical upgrade?

    Unless you had an addon, there was no backup/restore settings in vB4. Any addon you had no longer works with vB5. The best way to backup and restore your database is through the tools your hosting provider has given you.
