Migration from vBulletin and change of domain name


Well-known member
My forum stands on the verge of huge changes this year. There is a need to transfer the whole forum to another domain name, and also migrate everything over to XenForo.

Can this be done in one process, or should I focus on the domain change first before the software migration?

It's not too big a forum, a little over 110,000 posts with about 4,100 members.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

It's entirely up to you.
You can do it in one go or in stages.

Personally I would do it in stages by installing XenForo on the new domain and setting it all up; design, etc.
Then after making a few test imports, import your old forum directly into XenForo on the new domain.
