    Dear team ! I am interested in your software. We have a very large forum www.urdupages.com (attachments make the database very large). The forum is running the vbulletin software 3.7.0. Here are my questions.

    1) I need a professional service for migration. How much I will pay to you all together ?
    2) How long will it take to complete the migration? (estimate time).
    3) Our server has an old version of MySQL . Do I need to update it prior to order your service?

    Thank you.

    There is a built in importer for VB 3.7.
    See what is imported here: https://xenforo.com/community/threads/pre-sales-faq.4951/
    Most people feel comfortable doing it themselves but should you wish to hire someone, it would have to be a third party as we don't provide an import service.

    The time taken to import will depend on the server specification and configuration and the amount of content.
    I would suspect several hours at least.

    XF requires MySQL 5.0+.

    Can a non technical person do the import or is it too technical?

    In that case (if you aren't sure to do the migration yourself) you can check my signature for customer testimonials and start a conversation with me.
