You will need to log-in to the Members' Area using the Customer Number and Customer Password that was emailed to you when you purchased your license.
Once logged in, you will see a list of Current Licenses. For each active license that you own, there will be a Download vBulletin 5 Connect link that you can click.
Click the link for the license you want to use and you will be taken to the download page, where you will be given options for how to download the latest vBulletin package.
You can choose from the following options:
- PHP File Extension
As a general rule, web servers will use .php as the extension for PHP scripts, but some servers may use a different extension, or you may simply wish to use a different extension out of your own preference. Various extensions are available here for you to choose.
- Download File Format
This option allows you to choose the compression format of the package you are about to download. Most people will want to download the .zip package as Windows® has in-built support for zip files. However, if you are downloading the package directly to a Linux server you may prefer to use the tarball (.tar.gz) format.
- CGI Shebang
This option will only be of use to you if your server runs PHP as a CGI rather than as a web server module. If your server runs PHP as a CGI and requires a shebang (such as #!/usr/bin/php) then you can enter the required text here and it will automatically be inserted into whichever PHP files in vBulletin require its use.
- Download File
The package will then be downloaded and saved to the location you specified.
