Reviving an old 3.4.x board

Recommended Posts

Hey, I have an old pretty much archived forum - that I would like to revive, for nostalgic reasons.  The problem is it doesn't even load at all, probably because the server has been through countless upgrades and all the functions in PHP that had specific syntaxes back then aren't the same now....amongst another bunch of plugins and whatever else.

I was wondering if it's possible to obtain versions of invision board that were released between then and now and run through upgrade procedures to get back to the old data?

I don't think that older versions of Ipb are still available for download. You can try a direct upgrade though to the current latest version.

As Miss_B mentioned above, old versions aren't available anymore for download, unless you downloaded them at the time they were available and have a backup copy of the zip file somewhere.

 

That said, while there are possibly going to be some PHP 8-related errors when upgrading straight from 3.4 to 4.7, it's certainly possible. I do it often.
