    I was trying to follow S's game plan when Z threw me a curveball.

    I guess I'll try Z's strategy first (once I find the documentation and until I get another curveball ).

    Thanks to all,

    Yes, we have two different strategies. Please choose which one you want to do so the other person can simply stay out of this thread.

    <<Thats not true...>>
    Not sure what you are referring to here.


    I think I'm hearing you and Steve say 2 different things.

    S: move the 3.0.7 site over to the new machine, make sure it works, and then upgrade it to 3.6.

    Z: Move ONLY the 3.0.7 db over, install 3.6 and tell 3.6 to use the 3.0.7 db.

    To me that sounds like 2 different strategies. (I like your's better )

    Thats not true, I'd guess that its mysql5 causing the issues, you probally won't be able to install vB 3.0.7 or run it in mysql 5.

    Like we said, REstore the database, upload the 3.6.0 files, run the upgrade.

    But the new box has a different version of mySQL/php on it.

    I can move all the files, but 3.0.7 won't run unless I reinstall for the new components.

    I'm guessing the 3.0.7 install is having probs because of mySQL 5.

    If you had the 3.0.7 files, and restored a 3.0.7 database it'd work. Theres no need to run the installer.

    I thought it was clear.

    "Move the db"
    "Move the ... files" (by which I assume you meant vB3.0.7 files)
    "Make sure everything works" (by which I assume you meant I needed a working 3.0.7 site)

    ...and then upgrade to 3.6

    You'll Also need to run the upgrade script.

    Cool!

    When steve said move the database and files over and make sure it works, it sounded like I needed a working 3.0.7 install.

    I have 3.6 already running fine.

    So all I need to do is restore **just** the 3.0.7 db and then tell 3.6.0 to use the 3.0.7 database?

    <<sorry to be SO precise about this>>

    No, I'm not sure where you are getting this " I need to install" idea from.

    Here are the steps you need to follow.

    Restore your database
    Upload the 3.6.0 files
    Configure 3.6.0 to use the 3.0.7 Database
    Run install/upgrade.php

    I'm happy to wait...

    Steve gave me the move/upgrade recommendation here:
    http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showthread.php?t=198617

    Are you saying I can restore a 3.0.7 database directly into a fresh 3.6 install?

    But wait..

    You do not need to istall vBulletin if you are migrating data. If you have a backup it just needs to be restored. If this is a fresh install with NO prior data, just install vBulletin 3.6
