  • vBulletin Connect System Requirements

    Here are the current system requirements for vBulletin Connect (Current Version 5.4.2)

    Minimum Server Requirements

    The following system requirements must be met to install vBulletin.
    • Apache 2, IIS 8.5, or Equivalent.
    • PHP 7.1.X
    • MySQL 5.5.8+ or MariaDB 10+
    • mod_rewrite, URL Rewrite or equivalent.
    • mysqli libraries are required.
    • You must upload the included .htaccess file. A web.config equivalent for IIS is included.
    • cURL or OpenSSH is required.
    • mbstring and the iconv libraries are required to be installed in PHP.
    • A minimum of 1 Gigabyte of Database Storage.
    Note: PHP 5.6.X will become end of life at the end of 2018. This means it will lost all support and bug fixes from The PHP Group. As such, we have deprecated support for it. While your software will still run with this version of PHP, we will not fix errors directly related to the version itself. It is recommended that you use PHP 7 or higher for best support at this time.

    Apache Module requirements
    IIS requirements
    PHP Modules Required

    Most of these modules will be available by default. If they are not available, you must ask your system administrator to make them available.
    Recommended Server Requirements

    We recommend using the following server configuration:vBulletin and Web Security

    It is recommend that you use a valid SSL Certificate from a trusted authority for your vBulletin site. The site should run under HTTPS to provide the best security for your end users and their personal data. Using SSL under HTTPS is also required, or will be required, by many of the services that we have integrated into vBulletin.

    Database Notes

    For the best compatibility in data storage we recommend using the UTF8MB4 character set and a corresponding collation in mysql. You can configure this for your database before installing vBulletin with this query:
    ALTER DATABASE database_name CHARACTER SET = utf8mb4 COLLATE = utf8mb4_unicode_ci;
    MySQL 8. Compatibility

    UTF8MB4 is the default character set for all new databases.
    Your database user must use mysql_native_password password hashing. PHP's mysqli library does not currently support the new SHA2 password hashing used by MySQL 8. You can read more about this in the MySQL 8.0 Documentation.
