    You can specify the Forum Homepage URL in vBulletin Options -> Site Name / URL / Contact Details, it's towards the bottom.

    Also, how do I get the forum homepage to be "politicalwrinkles.com" and not "politicalwrinkles.com/index.php"?

    OK...

    Just for the heck of it, I cleared out all of the cookies on my PC, closed all tabs of my browser (Firefox) and opened the browser back up. For some reason, that did it...I now can log in (and STAY in!!!), and I can get to the Admin Control Panel. Why was it on my side?...No clue...But agitating...

    So...

    Every month or so, I manually back up a copy of the database to my hard drive...I go in through Putty and run "mysqldump --opt -uusername -p databasename > date.SQL...The last time I did this was Feb. 3rd, so I have a file called "Feb03.SQL". It's over 600MB (My site's been up for 5 years)...

    Do I simply run "mysql -uusername -p databasename < Feb03.SQL" or do I need to do other stuff?

    I was able to register just fine (username Tester).

    If you allow users to login to your site via both http://www.yoursite.com and just yoursite.com., then you MUST have your cookie domain (AdminCP > Settings > Options > Cookies and HTTP Header Options > Cookie Domain) set to ".yoursite.com" (no quotes, but note the period at the beginning) or your users will have problems. Also, make sure to tell your users to click the Remember Me button when they login.

    VB 3.8.2 is NOT compatible with PHP 5.3.x. VB 3.8.7 should be.

    vBulletin isn't like Windows software that it needs to be installed, just upload a fresh copy of the 3.8.7 files, import your database, setup config.php to your existing database, and run upgrade.php.

    You should be set. You may need to revert some templates if it tells you to do so in the Admin CP. Reverting will lose customization but they will work.

    If having the database means I didn't need to do an install, I simply didn't know that...

    It's the same domain (politicalwrinkles.com), but everything was wiped off of it as if vBulletin was never there before.

    The host upgraded my server to Debian 6/Plesk 11...I opened a support ticket asking for the MySQL...I simply can't find it on the damn host...PHP is 5.3.3...
