    i'm about to get xenforo and I was wondering what kind of server specs do i need ?
    This are my VB 5 forum stats,

    Topics: 24,175 Posts: 642,119 Members: 3,723 Active Members: 1,295

    Its running on the follow specs ,

    Brand and Model Dell - R210-2
    Processor 1x Intel Quad-Core Xeon E3-1270V2 [ 4 Core(s) ]
    RAM 8 GB
    HDD 2x1 TB SATA

    And who can i approach to do the conversion service ?

    Thanks, have approached a few members for their service, can't wait to move out of VB5 .
    Can I downgrade the server specs ? As I find its an overkill now.

    In general, feedback we have received suggests that fewer server resources are required for XF so you may be able to get away with a lower spec.

    I recommend Claudio. He moved my forum to Xenforo from vBulletin 5 successfully without issue.

    Good luck.

    Staff might be able to recommend vB5 to MyBB to XF as MyBB is working on a vB5 importer as one user there gave them his/her database. vBulletin 5 is reportedly very complex in regards to the DB, so maybe that is a reason why xF does not have an importer. Probably, just as well as there is not a huge demand for it. I wonder why IB (who owns vB) not use it on their own sites, but rather use vB3 and vB4.
