    I have been trying to get support for the past day about setting up the vbulletin 5 connect forum which I purchased a day ago.

    I have been unable to get any type of walk through and the ones that I have managed to get are out of date, I am confused about the process of setting the whole thing up, I would appreciate some help please.

    Hello

    If you can let us know the exact issues you are experiencing, we can point you in the right direction.

    In the meantime, you may find my own guide useful....


    1. Download the newest vB5 release from the members' area. https://members.vbulletin.com

    2. Unzip the files and go to the "upload" folder.

    3. You need to rename this file:

    /config.php.bkp

    To:

    /config.php

    Then, you need to rename this file:

    /core/includes/config.php.new

    To:

    /core/includes/config.php

    Then, in that file, you need to complete the following fields:

    $config['Database']['dbname'] = 'forum';
    Change forum to whatever your database name is.

    $config['Database']['technicalemail'] = '[email protected]';
    Change the email address to your own.

    $config['MasterServer']['username'] = 'root';
    Change root to the database username

    $config['MasterServer']['password'] = '';
    Enter the database password inside the '' marks.

    All other fields should be left as default, unless your database is on a separate server, in which case this will need changing:

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

    4. Upload all files to your server/webspace/whatever and browse to yourforumpath.com/core/install/install.php.

      I have followed what you said and I have got to the configuration builder, in the videos that I have not seen this.

        if you're on make config.php then you haven't completed all the instructions. You need to make sure the second config.phpmfile has your database credentials in it. You need to have set up this database beforehand.

          Due to the following errors, the install/upgrade can not continue:
          • vBulletin 5 requires MySql version 5.1.5 or greater. Your MySql is version , please ask your host to upgrade.
          • Error description:
          • The database has failed to connect because you do not have permission to connect to the server. Please confirm the values entered in thecore/includes/config.php file

            The first part of that error suggests your MySQL version is too low...please have your hosts check this.

            The second part means the database credentials you've entered are incorrect. Only your host can help you find out what they are.
