  • 3.5.4 to 3.6.2 Post Install Question

    I had a message from my host earlier advising that someone had gained access to a tmp directory. The host apparently managed to stop the threat and has now advised I upgrads asap.

    As usual I may have been foolish to install the following plugins.

    v3 Arcade1.0.5A multiplayer gaming system
    VB image hosting1.4.1I mage hosting sloution for VB Edit
    vBSEO :: Sitemap Generator1.6.1Generate a Google & Yahoo Sitemap for your Forums vBShout2.0AJAX Shoutbox for vBulletin


    I understand that the plugins are supported by the authors, but what is the impact of making these inactive and then doing the upgrade?

    Im really unsure how to proceed. The site depends on these plugins and I dont want to lose them. I also running a Kartel Fixed theme and wonder what I need to make it work. Im competent in following instructions and doing the upgrade on a normal un molested forum but one with the complexity as this makes me a tad concerned.

    Mods please feel free to move to n00b section

    You should be able to upgrade with plugins installed, but if they don't work after upgrading you will need to post over at www.vbulletin.org for help.

      Thanks Steve. Would it be advisable to disable before the upgrade?

        It wouldn't hurt.
