    Can I make another point.

    Why do so many people upgrade to vb3 Beta 7 then decide to try and downgrade afterwards?

    Is it because people don't think it through fully before upgrading on a live board?

    Don't forget the licence agreement will allow you to use more than one installation of vbulletin as long as one copy is inacessible to the public behind a .htaccess file or on a test server offline.

    So you can see whether you need upgrade when vb3 goes gold.

    TheAnt06 - it isn't as simple as you think to revert back to vb2, for a start off the database schema is different and as Faranth has already stated, all of your exisiting members will have to have a new randomly generated e-mail sent to them and you may cause problems for yourself if some of your members have opted not to recieve e-mails from admins and may never get their new passwords.

    So a piece of common sense advice if you have vb2.x.x running on a live board, run vb3 Beta 7 on a test board before taking the plunge as you may realise vb3 isn't suitable for you at this time.

    Saves you a lot of hassle in the future.

    the "real" password is never sent when you ask for an email to get sent to the user it just makes a new random password ;D

    Why would you want to downgrade? vB3 RC1 will be here soon. (i think ) Besides vB3 Beta 7 is pretty stable. I run a popular ish forum on vB3 Beta 7 without any problems at all. *touch wood*

    I have managed to move all my users to vB2, but is all I have to do is delete the old files then upload?

    you cannot jsut "downgrade" either you must do a restore of your old vb2 database or start over

    started a topic Downgrading.

    Downgrading.

    I'm currently using vB3, and I want to use vB2.3.3 instead. Do all I have to do to install it is delete the vB3 files n upload the vB2.3.3 files?
