  • Move Forums But Keep Threads?

    How do I move a forums that is using SMF to vBulletin that is one level below it?
    -root
    -SMF
    --vBulletin

    I want vBulletin to be on the top level.
    -root
    -vBulletin
    -SMF(Deleted)

    But keep all the threads and members?

    To move vBulletin like that you just need to copy the files to the new directory on the same server, then update your forum URL:

    Admin CP -> vBulletin Options -> Site Name / URL / Contact Details -> Forum URL

    The config file will still be pointing to the same database so all of your forum info will remain.

          That error is from a plugin you've installed. You need to disable each of your plugins then turn one at a time to see which one is causing this.

          If you cannot log into the Admin CP then to disable the plugin system, edit config.php and add this line right under <?php

          define('DISABLE_HOOKS', true);

          This will disable all hooks and allow you to log in properly with no hooks running.
