  • Update from 3.07 to 3.6.8

    I would like to update vBulletin from 3.0.7 version to 3.6.8.

    Is it possible to install the 3.6.8 version and then import the database from the vBulletin 3.0.7 version???

    I would like to know if it's differences between the tables in the databases.

    Thanks for all

    It's possible but not recommended or supported. The only supported way to do this is to upgrade normally.

      Now I'm going to change my hosting and I need to install the new version of vBulletin in the new server. Then I would like to migrate the data to the new installation.

      In your opinion, what is the best way to do this?

      Thank you

        If you import the datas, all your id's will be changed and all links from the search engine goes to a wrong page!

        Update is better...

          For your answer, you think that the best way to do it is the following:
          - First, install in the new server the vBulletin 3.0.7
          - Second, export the vBulletin database from the old server and import in the new
          - Finally, migrate the 3.0.7 version to 3.6.8

          Is this correct?

          The migration is enough to install the 3.6.8 or I need install previous versions before.
          Thank you

            Yes, that's correct.
            Importing a 3.0.7 database in a 3.6.8 version might cause some problems.

            For upgrading, all you need to do is to run the upgrade.php in the "install" folder.
            You don't need to install previous versions, running the upgrade will take care of them.
