  • 2.2.6 PHP3 to 2.2.9 PHP upgrade help needed

    I am currently running the PHP3 version of Vbulletin 2.2.6. I would like to upgrade to the PHP version of Vbulletin 2.2.9. How can I do this?

    As per the upgrade guide, I uploaded the new forum files, and ran the following files:

    From 2.2.6

    It seemed to work at first, but all links pointed to files with php3 extensions, so nothing was operational except for the main page.

    I restored everything back to 2.2.6 PHP3, and checked the upgrade guide again. I noticed this:

    If you are running the .php3 version, full instructions are available in the readme.txt file in this zip file.

    I downloaded this zip file, but it only spoke of upgrading from 2.0.x versions.

    What do I need to do to make the jump from PHP3 to PHP?

    As far as I know, you can just upload the new files, run the upgrade scripts like you did then go into your admin CP, head down to "templates" go to "search" tell it to look for .php3 and to replace it with .php

    and it should work... i think

      Check this thread:

      It's a little messed up right now but the info is there. You need to update it for 2.2.9 of course.
