  • Upgrading from ver 3.x

    Hello,
    I'm running version 3.x, should I upgrade to ver 5 and make it online, or go to ver 4.x

    P.S
    I've to take the decision now.

    Version 5 is not ready yet for live forums.
    Choose 3.8.7 or 4.2


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

      Thank you,
      The problem is that I'm using 3.8.2 and got an error message:
      Deprecated: Assigning the return value of new by reference is deprecated ( in (init.php) and (class_core.php) ) and was told that I've to upgrade.

      Also in upgrading I'll pay twice for 4 and later for 5

      Regards

        You pay for ver 5 only.
        With that licence you can download 3.8.7 or 4.2(or whichever other versions you want)

              My advice also is at this stage take it to 4.2. 5.0 is not finished yet.

              Always upgrade a test mirror of your site first as well.

              Take BACKUPS of everything before every upgrade.

              Once you get to 4.2 and are happy with it, you can create another private test mirror and upgrade it to 5.0 Beta if you like, to get a feel for what it would look like on your site.

                Thank you, this is exactly the question I was wondering about. I am confused by how hard vBulletin is pushing me to 5.0 (at least in my emails, lol - which I do not mind) but I was not sure how to go from 3.8.7 to 5
