vBulletin 5.7 to Xenforo selfhosted


New member

on your page only the import from vB 5.3 mentioned. Is this information old?
Is it possible to import from vB 5.7 (actually version) without problems?

I am thinking about buying the selfhosted version of Xenforo.

Thx a lot, Thorsten

It does not have an x, like "Discourse 2.x," it literally says "vBulletin 3.6 to 5.3" so the importer might not work past that version.

The importer versions just denote the tested versions. I know that VB 5.6 works fine so I suspect 5.7 will be too.

As ever, always run a test import first. If you run into any specific issues we can help you out before you schedule and perform the live import.
