  • [Site Builder] A problem with the installation vb5


    A short time ago I had a forum with the, now this domain has not been renewed and I don't use it anymore,

    I went to vbulletin official and in my customer area I changed the url from to

    now I'm trying to install vbulletin 5.5.5 but it gives me an error as in the screenshot attached.

    Click image for larger version  Name:	error vb.png Views:	0 Size:	199.4 KB ID:	4431844

    i doubt about this

    I noticed that in this guide
    it says to rename the config.php.bkp file in config.php and then open it and edit this string
    $ config ['baseurl'] = '';
    but when i rename the file and open it this string doesn't exist, maybe that's why it gives me url error, I don't know.

    do you have any advice to give me?

    That blog is out of date and you shouldn't have to edit anything in the /config.php.bkp file.

    It cannot find your AdminCP. The most likely cause is one of the issues in this post:

    After installing vBulletin 5, my site is unformatted
    This means that URL Rewriting is not working on your site. Possible causes include:
    • htaccess.txt has not been renamed to .htaccess (the leading period is important)
    • mod_rewrite is not installed for Apache 2.4
    • URL Rewrite is not installed for IIS 8.5+
    • The server configuration for NGINX has not been updated. See the file for your version of PHP within the do_not_upload folder.
    • AllowOverride is not allowed in the Apache configuration file.
    You hosting provider can help you get URL Rewrites working on your site.

      Hello Wayne,
      I just wrote to my hosting support at

      and I asked for information

      in the meantime do you want to check my htaccess file?

      i tried the installation again modifying this

      $config['Database']['tableprefix'] = 'vb_';
      but i always have the same problem

      I attach my htaccess file

      Thank you for your support.
