Are you running the forum on a shared host or VPS? Generally I never recommend to run a forum on a shared host because 99% of the time they are slow or have very strict limitations in place.

Based on a WHOIS history it seems that the domain was moved to Google late last year so there was some sort of activity. The nameservers still seems to be pointing to AWS.

The error logs of Apache and PHP should be a good start to figure out what's going wrong.
Big chance that the PHP version changed. Try upgrading vBulletin to 4.2.5 and then you can use PHP 7.

That would only work if the variables were evaluated to PHP code, but they are not.
