    The most likely cause is that the baseurl set in your /config.php file is incorrect.

    The next likely cause is that you didn't upload the required .httacces (for Apache) or web.config (IIS).

    Third most likely cause is that you have .htaccess in the directory above your installation. In that case you would need to add a RewriteBase directive to the .htaccess file. It should be after RewriteEngine On and look like:
    RewriteBase /forum/

    After that the issue could be that mod_rewrite (Apache) or URL Rewrite (IIS) aren't working for your domain for some reason.

      I should known that the answer would be in language I didn't understand. Lol
      I never had any issue installing vb4 but this vb5 is giving me a headache, not to mention the learning curve.

      If the forum in the directory: public_html/forum/ should the core base url be, "forum/core"?

      I hate being a noob! Thanks for the help so far.

      This is what my front config reads,

      Code:
         //    ****** 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'] = 'http://www.texastruckscene.com/forum';
      
      
      
      
      // 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'] = 'https://www.yourdomain.com/folder';
      
      
      
      
          //    ****** System Paths ******
      
      
          // This setting allows you to change the name of the admin folder
      $config['admincpdir'] = 'admincp';
      
      
          //    ****** Cookie Settings ******
          // These are cookie related settings.
          // This Setting allows you to change the cookie prefix
      $config['cookie_prefix'] = 'bb';
      
      
      
      
      //    ****** Special Settings ******
      // These settings are only used in some circumstances
      // Please do not edit if you are not sure what they do.
      
      
      // You can ignore this setting for right now.
      $config['cookie_enabled'] = true;
      
      
      $config['report_all_php_errors'] = false;
      $config['no_template_notices'] = true;
      
      
      // This setting should never be used on a live site
      $config['no_js_bundles'] = false;
      
      
      // This setting enables debug mode, it should NEVER be used on a live site
      $config['debug'] = false;
      
      
      // Assumes default location of core. 
      // These are the system paths and folders for your vBulletin files
      // This setting is for where your vbulletin core folder is
      $config['core_path'] = realpath(dirname(__FILE__)) . '/core';
      
      
          // This is the url and web based path to your core directory
      $config['baseurl_core'] = $config['baseurl']  .  '/core';

      Also,

      What can I look for to make sure the .htaccess or web.config are correct?
      I have never looked at these files internally..

        Your baseurl should be the address in your browser window that you would access the website from. The /core directory shouldn't be accessed directly. Your URL above looks proper.

        You would need to look at what is on your server and compare those file with what you downloaded. You only need one or the other. If you're using Apache, then you use .htaccess. If your server is running Windows and IIS, then you would use web.config.

          I believe the server I'm on is using Apache, the weird thing is that I am not finding a .htaccess file in the "upload" folder.

            If you're on a Mac it would be hidden by default. You need to tell the computer to show it.

            See: http://www.macosxtips.co.uk/index_fi...dden-files.php

            It will be within the upload folder.

              That what the problem was, now that I uploaded that we have a Log In page but nothing else is working. Everything I click on links me to the "homepage".
              Why is this thing so complicated...

                What is the link to your site?

                Not really that much more complicated. There is one additional variable in a file that needs to be filled out. That variable simply asks for the URL of your website. The rest of the configuration is exactly like previous versions.
