    Just doing a test import of a 3.8 VB forum, everything seems to have gone fine, but I can't see where to rebuild the search caches, there is no option under the tools tab which is where the instructions say to find it.

    Tools -> Rebuild Caches -> Rebuild Search Index

    If that's not available, check you have permission on the administrator options page.

    It's not there, I did purchase (a long while ago) the enhanced search option, but as this is just a test import onto a small test server I haven't implemented that, could that be causing a problem?

    Do you have the permission granted for your account, as per the screenshot I edited in?

    Thanks that was the problem, my first user wasn't my admin account so I didn't have the correct permissions to access rebuild, editing the config.php to make my account a super admin and then editing the permissions sorted it.
