I am thinking to migrate my forum website from vBulletin version 5.5.6 to xenForo 2.x. Is this possible ? Please let me know if there are any known challenges. Also do let me know what all points that needs to be considered before thinking of this migration.

There is an importer available for VB5 which will import all standard content.

If you are currently using a hosted version of VB then you will need to purchase a domain and hosting, and get a copy of the database and server files (attachments, avatars) to be able to do the import.

Hi. Has the importer improved? I am considering moving a Vbulletin 5 forums over to Xenforo 2.x but the forums is very large and i was reading some other of your clients having issues of hanging during the import process. Have those issues been resolved?

CLI is the way to go for anything over 1M posts.

I just migrated from VBulletin 5.5.6, I can not understand why it took me so long.
The migration was flawless as is the XenForo software. Just do it and don't worry..After a week when you get used to everything Its beautiful. I also use todo10 as a host!
I love it!!
