  • Help, is Vbulletin for a novice?

    I don't really have a lot of experience with the internet other than as a user. I want to set up a chat forum and vbulletin was suggested. I bought a licence today after being advised that it was easy to use and I've stumbled big time already.

    I don't have a domain yet (have ordered domain and hosting package) not active though. I was informed by vb that I would be able to download the vbulletin software to my computer then customise etc then send the files to my hosting company and hey presto - a new website!

    I have stumbled today as I don't have a webserver, mysql, php, apache and probably other stuff I need too! Also, when downloading it the instructions stated that a new file would appear called; versionnum.licensenum
    this didn't appear so I can't proceed.

    I take it from my early experience that I just don't have enough knowledge of this to proceed, have I missed downloading something that will make all my problems go away and make vbulletin easy to use and manipulate?

    I really don't know whether or not I have just wasted the licence money, if anyone has any suggestion or if you have been in my position, please help.

    Thanks in advance for any help anyone can provide.

        Andrew makes a good point there. You need to post this in the "How Do I" forum, then I would be glad to help you.
