Be sure to backup thoroughly before attempting this process as it may not work.

Because vBulletin 4 is probably considered legacy now and vb5 is the current 'distribution', you may find you have little or even no support on this.

The vBulletin Impex system is available open source from GitHub. (https://github.com/internetbrands/vbimpex)

The manual is available here:
http://www.vbulletin.com/docs/html/impex?manualversion=40203602

It's important to note that styles will not migrate and any modifications may cause issues.
