  • Cant make VB5 work !

    After failing to do the upgrade myself, I asked my host tech support to try.


    After they were unable to do the update they sent me this email:

    -Hello Kevin,
    The vbulletin upgrade from 4.2.5 to 5.3.3 is a major upgrade and it may break the website. We have already clone the website to vb5 and upgraded it with 5.3.3 and find the breakage of the website.
    We are not recommending to do the upgrade to 5.3.3.


    Does this make sense, or is someone missing something here?
    Who do I reach out to next being amateur?

    Well that's just a comment from a webhost. Webhosts are NOT experienced in upgrading vBulletin and are not a good place to start.

    Exactly what difficulties are you experiencing?

      Looking at the site in your license:

      In the root of the forum (on the server) is a file named:

      htaccess.txt

      Please rename this to:

      .htaccess

      Note the 'dot' at the start.

        I dont know why they couldnt figure that out! After changing the style to a generic, it appears to work so far.

        Q: when i try and access the admin CP, the 'new' version of the site flashes colors of the old configuration, and then returns me to the admincp login again - so, I cant get to the admin CP


        **** Nevermind - should read some basic instructions first *****

          Open the config.php file in the main folder

          and search for
          Code:
          $config['cookie_prefix'] = '';
          Replace it with
          Code:
          $config['cookie_prefix'] = 'bb';
