Question Is there a way?

Hi,

Got a question about transferring topics and users from 1 vb5 to the other.
I am still busy finding the right way to go from vbulletin 4.2.5 to vbulletin 5.6.4.

I have upgraded on a test site my vb4 to vb5.
So all my users and topics go over, and worked pretty good!

However there are still some things that will not work properly, and i think the reason of this is that when i upgrade, parts of the old add-ons are still in the database and have conflicts with the new ones.

So what i want to try is make a fresh install of vb 5.6.4.
And then, (and here comes the question) i want to copy/import all my members/topics into the fresh installation.

So, is it possible to do this? To move topics and users from one VB5 installation to another?

Impex is not a way, but maybe someone has an idea of how this could be possible!

Hope to hear, and that someone can help me.

Regards

Before upgrading, you need to uninstall all plugins with vb4.
Delete the vb4 files all and upload the vb5 files.

Run the update after entering the config.php mysql information.

I did it myself, it was no problem.

Thanks for your response.

However, i did exactly that!
But when i installed VB shout, in ACP there was still "the old vb4 version" installed/visable.
But i did uninstall it for sure!

So maybe small pieces are still left in the database.
That is why i am looking for a way to do a clean install, and then move my topics and users over to the new installation.

The way in your first post is not recommendable.

There are two ways:
A. (complete cleaning)
- Upgrade installation (with or without uninstall mods), important is only deleting all old vb4 files and upload only new vb5 files.
- go to phpmyadmin and export complete forum db structure (only structure, not data) and compare this structure with an export of clean vb install.
- delete all not-vb5-tables or table-columns

B. (clean only vbshout - I think you mean dbtech vbshout))
- Upgrade installation (with or without uninstall mods), important is only deleting all old vb4 files and upload only new vb5 files.
- look at installation files \upload\core\packages\dbtechvbshout\install (files with numbers) and delete all the tables/columsn created in that sql statements
- install vbshout
