  • vB5 - install problems on localhost


    I installed vBulletin 5. Or at least... I think I did.

    I edited the config file in the root folder. Then the config file in the core/includes/

    Installation was successful. It told me to go to adminCP or back to install.

    On the adminCP page I get a coplete WHITE page. No title... nothing.

    I managed to access the root of the forum. If I click LOGIN or SIGN UP in the top right corner I get this in the dropdown:

    Not Found

    The requested URL /vB5/auth/login-form was not found on this server.
    If I click register I go here:

    Ofcourse, the page does not exist.

    If I click FAQ I go here:

    This also does not exist.

    This are my paths to my forum:

    PHP Code:
    $config['baseurl'] = 'http://localhost/vB5';

    // This is the url and web based path to your core directory
    $config['baseurl_core'] = 'http://localhost/vB5/core';

    // This will only be used if you wish to require https logins

    // You will not need to change this setting most of the time.
    $config['baseurl_login'] = $config['baseurl'];

    // If you do wish to use https for login, uncomment this line
        // Then fill in your https url.
    //$config['baseurl_login'] = '';

        //    ****** System Paths ******
        // These are the system paths and folders for your vBulletin files
        // This setting is for where your vbulletin core folder is
    $config['core_path'] = 'C:\wamp\www\vB5\core'
    Any ideas?

    AFAIK you need to escape \ in your Windows file path (on core_path) like \\:

    PHP Code:
    $config['core_path'] = 'C:\\wamp\\www\\vB5\\core'

      Yea I did that. Same problem.
      It's like my instalation is incomplete.

      This is all my files/folders from the admincp.

      Is this normal? - Honest Game Reviews

        Did you upload the .htaccess file? What version of php/mysql are you running? Is suhosin enabled?

        edit: and yes, there are only two directories (which have several files each) and one file in the main /admincp directory.

          If you are using WampServer, you need to enable mod_rewrite on its task tray menu under Apache -> Apache Modules. This is disabled by default. Once you do that, Apache should restart and the rewrites should start working.

            Yea I knew it had something to do with the .htacess file. I deleted it thinking that vBulletin will go on "default links mode" but I totally forghot about the rewrite_module.
