  • [Documentation] vB5 Upgrade Instructions

    Everything I find seems to be for new installs. Where are the instructions for upgrading from an earlier version of vBv5 to v5.4.2?

    In the vb5readme.html there is a section on upgrading.

    There is a sticky topic in the vBulletin 5 Installs and Upgrades forum: https://www.vbulletin.com/forum/foru...lletin-connect

    And a chapter in our online Documentation here: https://www.vbulletin.com/docs/html/upgrade

    In reality the major difference between an install and upgrading your site is that you run /core/install/upgrade.php instead of /core/install/install.php. The steps are pretty much the same otherwise.
    1. Turn off your forums.
    2. Create a database backup.
    3. Upload the new files to your server.
    4. Run /core/install/upgrade.php in your browser.
    5. Delete the /core/install folder
    6. Turn on your forums.
