    Hi, I have vb3.8 on my site and am looking into the switch to xenforo.

    I have a quick question regarding importing my database. I am able to make a test installation of xenforo on a different server and import the vb database or does it have to be installed on the same domain?

    Thanks

    It needs to be on the same server.

    The original post is a bit vague.

    If you export your vbulletin database to another server there would be no reason why you can't do a test installation on a seperate server.

    Sorry Slavik....'Vague' about sums up my knowledge of databases though :)

    i'll look into exporting the database(or getting someone to help me do it)

    thanks!

    That's not entirely true, I believe. When you perform the import, you can specify the site/domain you want to import from. I just ran a quick test from my localhost and connected to our old vB3 database on a remote server.

    Feel free to smack me if I am dead wrong. Feel free to hire me for import jobs if I happen to be right :D

    Following the TS's question.. Which VB's versions can be imported to XF?

    XenForo itself only offers 3.6-3.8 importers. There are third party importers for vB4 out there as well, though :)
