View Full Version : I have no idea what I'm doing.. vBulletin 5 upgrade.

I have no idea how to upgrade my forum to vB5. I don't have permission to post in the vBulletin forum for some reason.

My forum is http://redstickmoto.com (vB4)

The new software has been uploaded and installed to: http://redstickmoto.com/testforums

However, I don't understand how do I get the vB5 to replace my original forum? I've read the vB Manual and I just don't understand.

Is there something I'm missing?

First off, it is STRONGLY recommended to do an upgrade on a test site first so that you may evaluate whether you wish to upgrade your live site at this time. There are still several features missing in vB5 which you may need on your site.

There are instructions in the manual on how to do an upgrade - https://www.vbulletin.com/docs/html/upgrade .
