  • [Bug / Issue] Fresh Install Vbulletin 5 Error

    To whom it may concern,

    I have currently installed the latest version of the vBulletin 5 onto my server and I have edited the two files



    After I have edited my information in the core/includes/config.php

    I ran the installation and upon completion it given me the option to proceed to the admin panel, I clicked the button then it sends me to

    which just shows my parent directory. I would like to know what am I doing wrong to where i can not get this to work, I am not that tech savvy when it comes to stuff like this, and I really only know the basics since I am actually use to the vBulletin 4 series. Any help or detailed advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Plus my front end of the website comes out all broken as well, I know I could go better then a crappy shared hosting, but I am currently on a budget at this point in time and I would like to start learning how to work with vBulletin 5.
