  • Question about the 2.0 upgrade process...


    As it appears that 2.0 will be coming out quite soon, I have a question. I currently have a UBB running which is live but am switching over to VBulletin. I bought my license last week and have installed 1.1.5 and it appears to be working just great. I imported the members, forums, and posts over flawlessly but still have the UBB running as I wanted to upgrade to 2.0 before I actually really transfer. My question is this though when the 2.0 beta is released:

    Is it better to upgrade to 2.0 and then re-import all messages over from the UBB?

    Or should I import them into 1.1.5 and then upgrade to 2.0 ?

    Does it matter ?

    In either case I would close my UBB first and I would format the templates while the board is live. The functionality will be there initially and I'll customize it a bit later.

    Thanks !

    This question is kinda redundant now...

      Well not really-- I'm still not sure what to do.

      Is is better to do a final import and then upgrade or the other way around ? Or does it really matter ?

      Please advise. I'd like to be doing one of them tonight. < grin >

          I know its there-- I'm quite excited and will be downloading it momentarily. Thanks.

          But what is the suggested order ? If it doesn't matter, I'll just import and then upgrade.

            1.1.5 -> import -> upgrade:
            * more tested
            * have to reindex the search after upgrading which can take a LONG time

            upgrade -> import:
            * less tested, but probably works as well as 1.1.x version
            * don't need to reindex the search as this is done while importing.

            Take your pick

              Thank you. I'll go with the more tested method and import and then upgrade. My board isn't *that* big compared to many I've seen (8500 posts) so I'll just patiently wait while it reindexes.
