    Download 4.5, extract it, compress and rename the upload forum to whatever your forum dir is, upload to website, extract (enable overwrite), run installer (www.example.com/forums/install/install.php)
    Fairly simple process, and don't enable any plugins (except blog, if you have suite).

        Don't do it,it is for a new installation,not for an upgrade!

        To upgrade: www.example.com/forums/install/upgrade.php


        vB5 is unequivocally the best forum software, but not yet...

            grrr.. i just made a big mistake. The installation guide says
            Do not refresh/reload any page of the upgrade scripts. Doing so may cause database alterations to be applied twice, which can cause errors.
            I think i have done that exactly coz i am getting an error like this
            Database error The database has encountered a problem.
            I forgot to change the config.php.new to config.php .. Now What can/should i do?? I'd appreciate your help
            How long will it take for vB to become xenForo?
