  • trying to set up a local development site

    Hello all,

    I hope I am asking this in a decent place to ask it.

    I am attempting to set up a development site locally on my computer.

    I am using MAMP to run MySQL and PHP on my computer. I have been building other sites with databases just fine (ones where I created the database).

    My question is... how do I modify the database connection details (i.e. username, db name, password, host) in the vbulletin files? I can't find a config (like WordPress) to modify the DB connection details.

    Could anyone help me out with this?? Thanks so much if so, I love vbulletin!

    EDIT: Oh! and I have already exported the database from the live site and imported it to the database that will run on my local development site. Just thought I should mention that. Now, I'm just trying to hook up to it through the vbulletin files.

    Nevermind, I think I got it.

    I found the config.php file within the Forums folder and then within the Includes Folder. And there were the database connection details!
