  • Upgrading from 3.5.8 to 3.7.3

    Finally got SQL server upgraded to allow newer vBulletin to work.

    Do I just replace all files as directed in the latest upgrade?

    Concerned about losing customization made through admin (have not reskinned forum outside of tools that came with program).

    This also will not affect member permissions, threads, etc.?

    Please follow the upgrade documentation here:

    Upgrading will always overwrite any hacks or changes you made to the vB files. However it will not change any plug-in or product add-ons, although you may have to ask the authors of these add-ons if they are compatible with the latest version of vB.

    Also upgrading will not overwrite custom templates. Nonetheless you will have to revert your custom templates and redo your changes since the changes from 3.5.8 are too great.
