Hi all,

I have a V5 licence that I purchased a while ago but decided to use V4 until V5 had matured a bit.

Now I want to give V5 a go but I don't want to disrupt the V4 forum.

Is there a way to run V5 as a clone of the V4 forum using the same database so that I can test V5 with live data without screwing up the existing V4 forum?

Thanks.

The only way to accomplish that would maybe have your server duplicate your database and have it set up as a Test Forum, Then upgrade the test forum to VB5.. From there you can then test the VB5 without disruption,
I would wait until further Upgrade on VB5 before upgrading your Live forum,,

I have admin access to a VB4 and VB5 forum, at this time VB4 runs better until all these Bugs are resolved on VB5.. once that happens VB5 should be great.
