  • Upgrade from 2.2.6 to 3.0.3

    Hi..

    It appears I need to do this upgrade soon for security reasons. I am more than a little scared about it.

    I read that I need to be at least 2.2.9 before I upgrade. But I can't find the instructions to upgrade within version 2 first. Can anyone tell me the absolute minimum that I need to do to safely accomplish this upgrade?

    Or is it so difficult that I really need to pay vB to do it?

    Thanks.

    Most people are able to upgrade themselves. For upgrade instructions, please see this thread in the vB3 Installation forum:

    And the online manual:

            Hi...

            In the middle of running the upgrade script I got a fatal error in step #28.

            Please tell me what I should do now? I don't want to touch it until someone tells me what I should do. Thanks.

            Step 28) Import vbulletin-language.xml

            MASTER LANGUAGE

            Please Wait


            Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 518719 bytes) in <path>/vb/includes/adminfunctions_language.php on line 556

              Your server ran out of memory. You or your host will need to increase the allowed_memory_size setting in php.ini.

                Okay I thought so. Then do I re-run step #28? There was a caveat about re-running steps so that's what I was wondering about. Thanks. --c

                  It should be okay to continue with step 28 once the memory issue is resolved.
