  • Blank Page While Trying To Install

    Never had this before but for some reason when I try to run the install.php and go to the following path "/forum/core/install/install.php" all I get is a white page. I dont see any install prompts. Anyone have any idea why? I edited the config.php but not sure why its not working. i have installed PLENTY of VB forums and this is a first for me.

    What do you have in the URL section of the root config.php file?
    vBulletin Support

      // ****** Base URLs ******
      // The following settings all deal with the url of your forum.
      // If set incorrectly your site/software will not function correctly.
      // These urls should NOT include a trailing slash
      // This is the url and web path of your root vBulletin directory
      $config['baseurl'] = '******';

          It was my fault (actually server companies fault). I thought I was already on my new server which had the updated versions of PHP and MySQL already installed but it seems like that hadnt pointed the DNS servers correctly. Now that Im on the newer server, the install seems to be going flawlessly. i will report back with any other hiccups. Thanks again. LOL.
