    You need at least php 5.6 for vBulletin 5.

    Also, 5.2.6 is old and unsupported - please upgrade to 5.3.4.

      VB 5.2.6 is pretty old already and is already out of the VB Support schedule. We support only the latest 3 versions of the software, Many hundreds of bugs have been fixed in 5.3.4 compared to 5.2.6.

      That error however should go away if you make the Administrator account with the lowest User ID (often userid 1) a Super Administrator in your /core/includes/config.php file. VB5 upgrades using the permissions of the Administrator with the lowest id number and if they aren't a Super Administrator in the config.php file you can get this issue.

        I have this

        // ****** USERS WITH ADMIN LOG VIEWING PERMISSIONS ******
        // The users specified here will be allowed to view the admin log in the control panel.
        // Users must be specified by *ID number* here. To obtain a user's ID number,
        // view their profile via the control panel. If this is a new installation, leave
        // the first user created will have a user ID of 1. Seperate each userid with a comma.
        $config['SpecialUsers']['canviewadminlog'] = '1';

        // ****** USERS WITH ADMIN LOG PRUNING PERMISSIONS ******
        // The users specified here will be allowed to remove ("prune") entries from the admin
        // log. See the above entry for more information on the format.
        $config['SpecialUsers']['canpruneadminlog'] = '1';

        // ****** USERS WITH QUERY RUNNING PERMISSIONS ******
        // The users specified here will be allowed to run queries from the control panel.
        // See the above entries for more information on the format.
        // Please note that the ability to run queries is quite powerful. You may wish
        // to remove all user IDs from this list for security reasons.
        $config['SpecialUsers']['canrunqueries'] = '1';

        // ****** UNDELETABLE / UNALTERABLE USERS ******
        // The users specified here will not be deletable or alterable from the control panel by any users.
        // To specify more than one user, separate userids with commas.
        $config['SpecialUsers']['undeletableusers'] = '1';

        // ****** SUPER ADMINISTRATORS ******
        // The userids specified below will have permission to access all areas of vBulletin 5.
        // Note that this is different to vB3 & vB4 where they only had extra permissions in the
        // Admin Control Panel. Be very careful who you grant this super power to.
        // The name of this setting has changed from superadministrator to superadmins.
        // This is to avoid the accidental granting of this permission when using older config files.
        $config['SpecialUsers']['superadmins'] = '1';

              You can try refreshing the page, but some steps will take a long time on very large sites.

                Upgrade finished, but once I log it goes to a 404page
                Strange there is no option to recover psw.

                  You need to log in to the admincp without /core/ in the URL.

                  Make sure you have renamed htaccess.txt in the forum root, to .htaccess. (Note the dot at the start).

                    Your rewrite rules aren't working properly.

                    Find this line in .htaccess:
                    Code:
                    #RewriteBase /
                    Change it to this:
                    Code:
                    RewriteBase /forum3/
                    Note that the '#' is removed from the start of the line.

                          I still have a directory issue.
                          Now my main folder is /forum/ but if I click on any post or forum I get a 404.
                          In my .htaccess it says /forum/

                            Did you change the URLs in the admincp before moving the forum from /forum3 to /forum?
