I have an issue with upgrading an old 3.8.6 version of VBulletin and i'd like to upgrade step-by-step to find out where the issue lies (multiple script errors, database migration failures, etc). Can someone with Premium access tell me if there are upgrades in the premium area from 3.8.6 up to 5.3? I know v.4 will upgrade my 3.8.6 then v.5.3 will take it from there, but I'm running into issues related to the upgrade AND the apache 2.2-2.4, php, and mysql upgrades as well and really need a singular upgrade for each release.

Thanks!

all the vb versions 4.x.x and below the code is broken and coders wont fix it it has to do with the higher php that your server folks are now implementing because of security issues and vb 5 is just terrible i moved on from vb and went xf and am much happier when i had my vb forum i was in 5.4 php and when my server folks upgraded to php 7.xx it broke it

The version 3.x.x and 4.x.x will error on php 7.x.x, but some fan group of VBB have been recode for compatible with php 7.x.x, but use it for security risk yourself

Do you understand the "recode" meaning?
VBB has stopped supporting and developing versions 3.x.x and 4.x.x, they only care about version 5.x.x and cloud version.
But my only love for 3.x.x version, i have a lot of skin and mod to run on my local host for memory
