Vanilla 2.6 is here
! It includes security fixes and requires PHP 7.0. We have therefore ALSO released Vanilla 2.5.2
with security patches if you are still on PHP 5.6 to give you additional time to upgrade.

I used Nginx as front listen on 8080 and push back to Apache to 8181
How I will set the nginx config and apache .htaccess to use RewriteURL on Vanilla forum
