    Yes I added permissions to work with the database.
    Yes its not the root user account either that I am using - I think. If I make a new user it wouldn't be right.

    I am actually happy to pay vbulletin to install this for me

    When you created the database did you give the user you're using in the config.php file permissions to work with the database. In mysql, aside from the root user account, accounts do not have access rights to any particular database unless they are granted those rights. As a note you should not be using the root mysql user account in config.php.

    Original messge states wrong user or pass or the user does not have full permission, try adding a new user with full privs and update config.php with new user and pass

    Try it with the 'i' extention, if you have latest PHP you need it.

    $config['MasterServer']['servername'] = 'localhost'; Same

    $config['Database']['dbtype'] = 'mysql'; Missing out the i at the end

    Are these credentials in config.php diferrent from this?

    Code:
    $config['MasterServer']['servername'] = 'localhost';
    Code:
    $config['Database']['dbtype'] = 'mysqli';

    Mark - I know you said ' You would need to check with your host as the database credentials are incorrect in the config file.'
    I have checked this and even created a new database with a different name but I still had the same result

    I know Im obviously missing something but don't know what.

    You need to open the 'upload' folder and upload all the vbulletin folders and files to the root.

    I would want the forum to appear on a particular domain
    I have my public_html
    In this I have e.g. Domain1, Domain2 etc
    I would like my forum to be on Domain2

    If you uploaded the'upload' folder, the forum will not be in the root but will be at www.domain.com/upload

    Also would I have to delete the upload folder and restart to try installation of the Vbulletin forum?

    Ok

    In my config file I have
    $config['Database']['dbname'] = 'ptrainer_Gym-Fundamentals';

    I have also entered the same username and password in this part of config file (left out for this post):
    $config['MasterServer']['username'] = '';
    $config['MasterServer']['password'] = ‘’;

    I did create the database called
    ptrainer_Gym-Fundamentals

    I am using hostgator as my host and have different domains under the same host
    In the public_html folder There are more folders with my domains and I uploaded the upload folder to one of these folders

    Would that make a difference and it cannot find my database I wonder??
