    best way to avoid it is upgrade old server mysql to same as new server mysql before doing the mysqldump, then transfer to new server to do the vB upgrade

    Thats what I am trying to avoid. How can I ?

    Do I need to do a clean install on the new server and then import to the new install from the old ? Would that get around having compatibility issues ?

    Im not really sure how to ask my question.
    If I upgrade to 3.5.4 on the box running the older php/mysql, and then transfer it to the other box running the newer php/mysql, vbb isnt going to have any issues because it was upgraded with the older versions of php/mysql ?

    I know that I have had this problem with the lesser messageboard systems out there. Its almost as if since it wasnt installed with the newer php/mysql, it just plain broke down once it was on on the newer platform.

  • Changing Servers + Upgrade, Wanting best way to go about this...

    Running 3.07 modded on linux running php 4.3.10 and mysql 3.23.58
    New server is running php 5.0.4 and mysql 4.1.1
    Im also wanting to upgrade to vbb 3.5.4

    I've been searching and reading, but am quite confused as to what the best way to do this would be.

    upgrade to 3.5.4 > then move to new server ?
    upgrade old server to same php and mysql and then upgrade to 3.5.4 then transfer to new server ?

    Thanks for any help...
