    I am not familiar with that style. It depends on which templates were changed. My guess is that you will have to revert any custom templates then redo those changes manually.

    Thanks Steve,

    The other concern I have is over my styles... I am using a style called trigo I bought from vBstyles.com - however I have put messages on their forum asking if the style will work fine with 3.7 (as have a load of other members) but they are not answering the posts.

    Do you think it should work or are we likely to have problems?

    No. You need to move the 3.6.8 db to the new server then upgrade normally.

    Moving server and upgrade from 3.6.8

    Hi,

    I am about to move to a new server in two weeks although the new box is already live and configured.

    Old server has outdated versions of php and MySQL etc and new server has PHP 5 and MYSQL 5.

    I am currently running vBulletin 3.6.8

    Is it possible to just do a clean install on the new box of 3.7 and then simply take a MySQL backup of the database on the 3.6.8 and import it into the new site - or am I asking for trouble??
