  • Login to your vBSEO Cp and disable vBSEO
  • Login to your Admincp and Browse to Plugins & Products
  • Uninstall vBSEO product file , on the next step you’ll be given 2 options
  • If you ever plan to install vBSEO on the same domain , choose Keep vBSEO data in Database
  • If you will not use vBSEO again choose Cleanup vBSEO Data
  • Delete all files include .htaccess from your server via ftp. You can find the list of files that needs to be deleted below.

After uninstallation you can also redirect your indexed content to original vBulletin urls. Please carefully check the rewrite rules and use the one that fits your current url structure. If your url structure isn’t listed below please post a sample example so we can supply the correct rules.

If you have your thread rewrite rules set as forum-name/threadid-threadname.html use the following .htaccess

 

 
RewriteEngine onRewriteRule [^/]+/([0-9]+)-[^/]+\.html http://www.domain.com/forums/showthread.php?t=$1 [L,R=301]

If you have your thread rewrite rules set as forum-name/threadname-threadid.html use the following .htaccess


 

 
RewriteEngine onRewriteRule [^/]+/[^/]+-([0-9]+)\.html http://www.domain.com/forums/showthread.php?t=$1 [L,R=301]

If you have your thread rewrite rules set as forum-name/threadname-threadid/ use the following .htaccess


 

 
RewriteEngine onRewriteRule [^/]+/[^/]+-([0-9]+)/ http://www.domain.com/forums/showthread.php?t=$1 [L,R=301]
