  • Install vb on localhost:8080.

    Hi, I want to know how to install vb on local server (my comp running xampp on port 8080) on different port than 80?

    I tried

        //    ****** 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'] = 'localhost:8080';
    $config['MasterServer']['port'] = 3306;
    And still can't get it to work. Help is appreciated.

    those settings have nothing to do with the web server.

    leave the port there alone, as well as the host address.

      Not quite true as I have IIS also running on port 80.
      Sorry for not mentioning that earlier.

        That setting is for the MySQL server, not the web server. There is no setting in vB to change the port of the web server.

          No luck.

          I've turned off the IIS and now apache is back on port 80.
          Thanks for the help.

            You are not getting it. You don't "set" the host/port for vBulletin in the config file.
            The options you listed are for the database.

            If you want to run it on port 23433 that is fine.

            But those settings are for the MySQL database only.

            Put the file in the WAMP web directory, and go to the url http://localhost:23433/install/install.php and it will start ..

            dont change the config.php from vb to point to that host or port.

              I installed a vBulletin on localhost using the same as on a webserver (use XAMPP).
              Just run the install, change config.php to your database.
