  • Just purchased.. Help plz

    Hi I just purchased VB..
    Im having some problems because im a novice with PHP SQL etc..

    Ive downloaded all the necessary files and extracted them, Ive also edited the config page according to my DB settings (which my webhost provided).
    My webhost provided me with my:

    Database Name: xxx
    Username: xxx
    Password: xxx
    Server: xxx

    However, i'm lost as to what i do now..
    Do i simply upload the 'upload' folder to my webhost and it works?
    Do i need to set up tables manually in the database?

    Help will be greatly appreciated
    Id like to get it working today if possible

    thanks in advance
    johnny

        Uh Oh..

        I need help again please!

        I can get to step 2.. then i get this:

        Step 2) Connect to the database
        Selected database type 'mysqli' was not detected within your compilation of PHP.

        What should i do?

        thanks

          Choose mysql instead of mysqli in your config.php

                Ask you webhost provided what type of base you have.

                    It most probably means:my server is using mysql (version 5)
