    I have tried a handful of different things and I can not seem to get the site to appear correctly.

    My first question would be "Why are you upgrading to 5.4.5 when 5.5.2 is the most recent version?"

      For some reason, the system was not able to write all the stylesheets to your storage drive at the location specified in the AdminCP. In the AdminCP please go to Settings -> Options -> Style & Language Options and set "Store CSS as Files" to No. Save the page. Does your site render correctly after that change?

      Make sure the directory to store the CSS stylesheets is chmod 777 recursively. By default this is /core/clientscript/vbulletin_css. However you might have changed this is in the Style & Language Settings. Once the permissions are verified, then you can attempt to change the setting back to create the files.

      On older versions like the one that you are using, writing these files could time out based on your server settings. We've made changes in the 5.5.X series of vBulletin to prevent this from happening and only write the CSS for the styles that you're actively using. The best solution would be to upgrade to vBulletin 5.5.2 as soon as possible.

        The server hasn't upgraded to php 7 yet.

          Wayne Luke addressed my reason for posing the question. There have been major changes in how the software handles CSS in the latest versions.

        It was set to No, switched it to yes and it appears to be working. TY
