OK, folks I'm ready to take the plunge from vBulletin to Xenforo.

Can I get a detailed list on how to do this?

Thank you.

I'll even start it myself, LOL!

1 - Purchase Xenforo

- At what point should I close my vBulletin forum due to maintenance?

- Won't this create a dup on my FTP? If I was /community, in my case it would be /forums
For example, if you want to access XenForo via www.example.com/community/, create a community directory inside your webroot (such as a public_html or www directory).

You will need to close it at the point you start the final import.

Yes, you will need an installation for both vB and XenForo.

We will be happy to provide support once you are a licensed customer.

This is the pre-sales forum though and detailed support is not provided, for obvious reasons.

I'm going to purchase XenForo sometime today. Am I considered an existing customer or would I fill in new customer?
