VBSEO Uninstall

Thinking of removing VBSEO for 2 reasons, 1) No longer supported and 2) Heavy server loads. The post on how to remove it is gone: http://www.vbseo.com/blogs/mert-goek...all-vbseo-238/

Does anyone have a mirror of this anywhere and how many people have successfully removed it from their VB4 site already?

Not me, I've already applied several hotfixes from various threads to fix security issues, along with a little bit of extra security lines in my htaccess file to help stop various exploits.

This is what I took from VBSEO before they closed down:

If you ever need to uninstall vBSEO , you can use the following instructions. Make sure you carefully follow each step.

Login to your vBSEO Cp and disable vBSEO
Login to your Admincp and Browse to Plugins & Products
Uninstall vBSEO product file , on the next step you'll be given 2 options
If you ever plan to install vBSEO on the same domain , choose Keep vBSEO data in Database
If you will not use vBSEO again choose Cleanup vBSEO Data
Delete all files include .htaccess from your server via ftp. You can find the list of files that needs to be deleted below.


Files that needs to be deleted

admincp
admin_vbseo.php
clientscript
vbseo_ajax.js
images
vbseo
anchor.png
delicious.gif
digg.gif
facebook.gif
furl.gif
goto_linkbacks.gif
linkback.gif

modcp
vbseo_moderate.php
vbseo.php

.htaccess


After uninstallation you can also redirect your indexed content to original vBulletin urls. Please carefully check the rewrite rules and use the one that fits your current url structure. If your url structure isn't listed below please post a sample example so we can supply the correct rules.

If you have your thread rewrite rules set as forum-name/threadid-threadname.html use the following .htaccess
Code:
RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule [^/]+/([0-9]+)-[^/]+\.html http://www.domain.com/forums/showthread.php?t=$1 [L,R=301]
If you have your thread rewrite rules set as forum-name/threadname-threadid.html use the following .htaccess
Code:
RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule [^/]+/[^/]+-([0-9]+)\.html http://www.domain.com/forums/showthread.php?t=$1 [L,R=301]
If you have your thread rewrite rules set as forum-name/threadname-threadid/ use the following .htaccess
Code:
RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule [^/]+/[^/]+-([0-9]+)/ http://www.domain.com/forums/showthread.php?t=$1

If anyone has troubles with license activation or still wants to use vBSEO and have it function still. Let me know, as I've helped a handful of people. And all of them including myself are still using vBSEO safely and securely.

Personally, I see no point in getting rid of vBSEO right now.

Thanks for this, I would have thought they'd be more rewrites than that? Is it really that simple? Has anyone successfully uninstalled without loosing any inbound links.

Managed to turn VBSEO off and reroute all threads. How do I do the same for forums/members/blogs etc?

--------------- Added 19 Nov 2013 at 12:57 ---------------

Got all threads and forums working now, what about members/blogs/articles etc?

--------------- Added 20 Nov 2013 at 09:14 ---------------

Any clues on rerouting the CMS/Blogs/Community pages?

Tragically, one line RewriteRule can not do all...

At the last site from which I removed vbseo
It has been created:

Temporarily for a period of re-indexing:
- 4 new directory with htaccess (10 to 50 lines of different redirects)
- main htaccess about 100 lines

For permanent use:
- 1 new directory with htaccess (about 50 lines of different redirects)
- main htaccess about 20 lines

After removal of the vbseo
Attendance has decreased by 10-15%
PR site is not changed
Attendance was restored in about a month

In the creation of all forwarding was used:
- Google Webmaster
- Yandex WebMaster
- Server Error log

At each site admins make individual settings for vbseo links.
After removal of the vbseo for each site must use individual Redirects/RedirectMatch/Rewrite settings.

If done improperly, the site disappears completely from the search.
Visitors will get on page 404. Which is almost nowhere is not properly done.
Google will enhance the credibility of the site.

The process of removing vbseo consists of:
1 - Explore all options vbseo
2 - The study of links from third-party sites
3 - The creation of Redirects/RedirectMatch/Rewrite
4 - removal
5 - Elimination of the consequences of the error which made ​​vbseo before removal

Example of the error which made ​​vbseo before removal:
/content.php/members/archive/members/images/DarkStyle/buttons/section/content/minsk_podrobnaya_pogoda-28?page=5

several thousands of these errors which showed Google WebMaster
Prior to removing vbseo these pages were in search of Google

Save yourself the headache of removing it, just disable it in plugin manager folks. Works great, it's like it was never installed.
