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.

Sounds like a bad plugin you had installed that caused it which isn't necessarily vBulletin's fault.

That would only work if the variables were evaluated to PHP code, but they are not.
In vBulletin, they would loop in a PHP script and then call the template that would contain:

Maybe you have a custom hook installed that is causing this error? (which is not part of any plugin but was manually added)

You can find this under Plugins & Products > Plugin Manager.
