    Did you edit the name of that Database in the config.pp like this:
    Code:
    //    ****** DATABASE TYPE ******
        //    This is the type of the database server on which your vBulletin database will be located.
        //    Valid options are mysql and mysqli, for slave support add _slave.  Try to use mysqli if you are using PHP 5 and MySQL 4.1+
        // for slave options just append _slave to your preferred database type.
    $config['Database']['dbtype'] = 'mysql';
    
        //    ****** DATABASE NAME ******
        //    This is the name of the database where your vBulletin will be located.
        //    This must be created by your webhost.
    $config['Database']['dbname'] = 'forum';
    
        //    ****** TABLE PREFIX ******
        //    Prefix that your vBulletin tables have in the database.
    $config['Database']['tableprefix'] = '';
    And did you change these?

    Code:
    //    ****** MASTER DATABASE SERVER NAME AND PORT ******
        //    This is the hostname or IP address and port of the database server.
        //    If you are unsure of what to put here, leave the default values.
    $config['MasterServer']['servername'] = '*****';
    $config['MasterServer']['port'] = 3306;
    
        //    ****** MASTER DATABASE USERNAME & PASSWORD ******
        //    This is the username and password you use to access MySQL.
        //    These must be obtained through your webhost.
    $config['MasterServer']['username'] = '**1**';
    $config['MasterServer']['password'] = '**1**';
    1= Username and Password you made in the Database , not the username and pass from the host.

        $config['MasterServer']['port'] = 3306;
        SQL Hostname ?

        Like
        Code:
        $config['MasterServer']['servername'] = 'http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/';
        or
        Code:
        $config['MasterServer']['servername'] = 'forum';

        *as Forum is the name of the Database

          Make sure you have

          a) created a new empty mysql database

          b) created a new user for mysql database

          c) added a new password to this mysql user

          d) grant ALL on the user, to have access to that database (link user to that database).

          These are all things your hosting provider can provide for you, including the server host.

          $config['MasterServer']['servername'] = 'http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/';

          We are asking for "server name" , not the web site address , the forum path or the forum directory. But the mysql server. These are also details your hosting provider can provide for you.

              What did you do to fix it? I am having the same problem with GoDaddy.

              Step 2) Connect to the database
              Attempting to attach to database
              Error description: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2) /home/content/b/e/n/benzforums/html/forums/includes/class_core.php on line 311
              The database has failed to connect because you do not have permission to connect to the server. Please confirm the values entered in the 'includes/config.php' file.

                This is incorrect:

                $config['Database']['r1'] = 'forum';

                It should be:

                $config['Database']['dbname'] = 'r1';

                This is incorrect:

                $config['Database']['[email protected]'] = '[email protected]';

                It should be:
                config['Database']['technicalemail'] = '[email protected]';

                This username and password are incorrect as well.

                $config['MasterServer']['IPB'] = 'root';
                $config['MasterServer']['VBSEO'] = '';

                Should be:
                $config['MasterServer']['username'] = 'IPB';
                $config['MasterServer']['password'] = 'VBSEO';

                i think vb manual need to be update some user get confuse.

                      have you contacted your host to see what these values should be?

                      A simple phone call will save your hours of head aches.

                          That is correct,


                          $string = 'value';

                          You have to change the value on the right of the equal sign, obviousliy one can't change the $string name. Since it's a :

                          "set this string with name $string to this value with 'value' "

                            I wrote this script:

                            https://www.vbulletin-setup.com/index.php?do=install

                            To ask for the basic data, for fresh installs ..

                            generating a 3.7.x config.php file that can be used in 3.6, 3.7 and 3.8 releases.

                            (yes the certificate has expired, but it's still encrypted connection)
