  • White page after deleting makeconfig

    Try configuring the config file manually.
    Instructions below:

    I wrote this guide to manually installing vBulletin 5 on an Apache server, which should cover everything.

    =================

    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:

    htaccess.txt

    To:

    .htaccess
    (Note the 'dot' at the start)

    4. 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';

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

    6. Enter your customer number and the installation will proceed.

    7. Delete the /core/install directory after the installation has finished.
