iirc, php 5.4 is the minimum required for ubbt 7.7.5
ubbt 7.5 requires at least php 5.6 to be installed, with php 7.1 and newer as the recommendation.

once you have php 5.6 or php 7.1 to 7.4 installed, you should not expect any issues with your upgrade to ubbt 7.7.5.

php5.2 has time zone (clock) issues, and does not support all of the php commands required, such as conventional array string usage. thats just two of the many bugs with in php 5.2 language version.

Thank you.

But seems I might be in for trouble for a mixed state.

Should I expect the current 7.7.2 to fully support php 7.4 or should I try 7.1 ?

What about MySQL it is on a very old version too

Well, turns out that my Server 2003 is not supported for newer versions of PHP

Will install PHP 7.4 and latest MySQL on the Server 2019

Can I then install UBB 7.7.5 and import the old database as a way to upgrade?

This post, and the replies following it, should help get you up and running with Windows Server.

Thank you again, isaac

I'm going to install a test server on VM for Server 2019 and install PHP and MySQL and get that working. Then install UBBT 7.7.5

Then, I assume I can do an import of the old 7.7.2 database ?

What you need to be careful of is to make sure there are no database changes when running the upgrade script, since you would be bypassing that step..
The scripts are called altertable that are executed from the upgrade script.
So if there are changes then a database import from your older version would not have those changes.

I think in this case you should be fine with the database import.
I do not believe any part of the database was modified between the two UBB versions.

If not you will need to setup the new server with say php 5.4 or 5.6
Move the files and database from the old server.
Set the proper permissions for files and folders
edit the includes/config.inc.php file for any path or user/password changes and database name etc
Browse to the board to make sure it is in proper working order
Then follow the upgrade procedure document
over write the files with the new version, excluding the specific files as noted
Then run upgrade.php not install.php

Then you can upgrade php to 7x

Yes, this is taking some time as I'm quite busy at work and setting up an IIS that is secure for public facing takes time.

It's our own fault for running on old unsupported software for so long that it now makes it quite difficult to do step upgrades.

Thank you for your feedback as well, Ruben, appreciated.
