I have done a local test migration and I'm almost ready to switch from vBulletin 3.8 however I have some questions regarding redirects:
Let's say that my vBulletin forum URL is: http://www.mysite.com/forums
So I have: http://www.mysite.com/forums/forumdisplay.php, http://www.mysite.com/forums/showthread.php and so...
This is what I'm planning to do:
1. Install XenForo on www.mysite.com/forums
2. Run the import
3. Redirect everything!
But how to redirect? I'll perform a clean import (keeping content IDs the same between vB and XF), do I still need to save the import log and use the Redirection Scripts? Or it's all about .htaccess rules? If so, where I can find the standard .htaccess rules to redirect everything from vBulletin to XenForo?
Oh and I'll also import tags so I want to redirect:
