    Installation:


    Standard, Basic or Advanced URLs:

    1. Upload contents of standard-basic-advanced/upload folder to your forum root.
    2. If your URLs are not working, follow these instructions: http://xenforo.com/help/import-redirection/
    3. If you are using nginx and Advanced mode URLs, you may need the following rewrites:
      Code:
      rewrite ^/showthread.php /showthread.php;
      rewrite ^/forumdisplay.php /forumdisplay.php;

    Mod_Rewrite URLs:

    1. Upload contents of standard-basic-advanced/upload folder to your forum root.
    2. If your old rewrite rules are still in place, your URLs may work at this stage. If not, continue to install a route-based alternative: (and be sure to disable any remaining vB4 rewrite rules as they may interfere with the routes)
    3. Upload contents of mod_rewrite/upload folder to your forum root.
    4. Install the addon XML file mod_rewrite/addon_vB4Redir.xml
    5. If your URLs are not working, follow these instructions: http://xenforo.com/help/import-redirection/

    (Optional) Change of directory:

    Follow these instructions if you wish to also change your forum directory when moving from vBulletin. A basic understanding of rewrite rules is required - these are just examples. To specify the root directory, swap out /old-dir/ or /new-dir/ for /

    Standard, Basic or Advanced URLs:

    Apache: (untested)

    Code:
    RewriteRule ^/old-dir/showthread.php /new-dir/showthread.php
    RewriteRule ^/old-dir/forumdisplay.php /new-dir/forumdisplay.php
    Nginx:

    Code:
    rewrite ^/old-dir/showthread.php /new-dir/showthread.php;
    rewrite ^/old-dir/forumdisplay.php /new-dir/forumdisplay.php;
    Mod_Rewrite URLs: (Note that these are only tested with the route-based redirection system)

    Apache: (untested)
