  • Ubb 5.46 crashed. 5 Qns on conversion to Vbb

    I bought vbulletin yesterday. My purchase number is RE6831284. Here is my background. I am using ubb 5.46 for my virtual server at On saturday the board crashed for no reason. All i see are zero posts for the forums and the diskspace for my server has suddenly ballooned by way over 70mb in a day. I suspect someone has hacked my message board.

    The question i want to ask is

    1) UltBB.setup file is corrupted (at zero byte) so will i still be able to import all the topics from ubb5.46 to vbulletin intact?

    2) 60 member files are corrupted at zero byte too. If the importation is successful and these users register at the board again will i be able to restore their post count and user title to them in vbulletin by editing their particulars?

    3) Can i set the board to Singapore time?

    4) Since UltBB.setup is corrupted will the forums styles and color format be imported as well?

    5) I want to ditch ubb. Will you go the extra mile to import the ubb 5.46 topics to vbb if i pay for a professional installation from you guys?

    If you want to set a post count, then you can manually do that, yes, via going to their profile and typing it in. You can also set their custom user title as well. They do have UBB->vB installer scripts, you might check here as well as for them. Styles and colors I believe can be imported yes, but if they can't, it's not that hard to change unless you're board is hacked to death, in which case I believe you'd have to re-hack it for the vBulletin files. And I'm sure that if you paid for the installation, they would do it. I hope this helps a bit!

      Don't you have any old backup files?

          Thanks for your replies guys. I have managed to upload UltBB.setup and resetup the settings. However i have closed the message board. What's on my mind now is whether the guys at vbulletin can import the data from ubb 5.46 to vbb if i purchase a professional installation from them?

            They should be able to as long as you have all the data. Open a support request at:
