Vbulletin Upgrade Breaks on Skimlinks

If you are upgrading an old version of Vbulletin to the latest release and you already had the skimlinks plugin installed you'll probably run into issues.

Basically the vbulletin upgrade can't handle the upgrade of the plugin properly, so you get loads of SQL errors (and if you get an email for each one on busy site your inbox will soon be flooded)

The solution is as follows:
Uninstall the Skimlinks plugin

Then re-install it by importing it from the file system:

You'll need to use the vbulletin installer / upgrade system to complete the install and then the SQL errors will vanish
