    Greetings:

    I'm having this same issue. did you put the .htaccess file in your root directory or did you upload it to the community directory?

    Did you remove the old files and installed a fresh new copy of all files

    I have the same issue. I uploaded the .htaccess file to the main directory (and also tried uploading to the forum directory). I received this error (http://cl.ly/image/1W0Q1y3C2F22)

    Yup! You are right. I extracted the package again on Mac and I found .htaccess file in the upload folder. Somehow the didn't see the file when I first extract in Windows 7.

    Thanks for the quick help!

    I renamed both "admincp" and "modcp" folders back to regular names and also modified "config.php" file in core/includes folder to reflect original "admincp" and "modcp" names. I removed everything from server and recreated databases and uploaded new files. I ran installation 13th time and it still shows the same error.

    After the installation, I clicked on ""Back to AdminCP" button and it took me to: http://domain.com/community/admincp/ which shows Index of /

    UPDATE

    I'm able to login into admincp when I visit http://domain.com/community/core/admincp and clicking on "Site Home Page" link from admincp points to: http://domain.com/community/core/

    See attachments. Awaiting for quick fix since it's not letting me to do installation at this time.

    Thanks you.

    At the time of vBulletin v5.0.0, support told (ticket 1183759) me that its a known issue and suppose to be fixed in v5.0.3 I'm sure that this issue has been fixed in previous version of Connect. But the issue came back again! Highly disappointed!

    Renaming admincp/modcp directories are not supported in vB5 actually.

    I'm having exactly the same problem! I've latest version of Apache and PHP. I tested more than 10 times today with a fresh copy of vBulletin v5.0.4 (downloaded to today) and unable to access board homepage at!

    All I did is:

    1.) Rename "config.php.bkp" to "config.php"
    2.) Rename "config.php.new" to "config.php"
    3.) Rename "admincp" folder to "MyAdminCP"
    4.) Rename "modcp" folder to "MyModCP"
    5.) Set the following properties in "config.php" (core/includes): admincp, modcp, database name, database username, password and enable memcache
    6.) Went to: http://domain.com/community/ ... Installation started ... entered custom number ... selects defaults settings ... Set Board Title, Email, Username and Password
    7.) Installation Successful. Removed "install" folder from "core/includes" folder.
    8.) Clicked on go to "Admin CP" button

    It took me to: http://domain.com/community/MyAdminCP and shows NOT FOUND error.
    The board homepage http://domain.com/community/ and shows site without css i.e., barely text without any images, css etc.

    I request vBulletin team to document detailed installation instructions before releasing a latest version. Any usable prompt help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    The only change is you don't need to edit the /config.php file. The instructions above take this into account. If the Configuration Builder cannot write the files to your server for some reason, you will need to manually edit the /core/includes/config.php file. The instructions are above.

    Warning: ignore_user_abort() has been disabled for security reasons in /clientdata/apache-www/d/o/doula.com.au/www/forums/core/install/upgrade.php on line 15
    This would be a server configuration issue and we cannot do anything about it. You would need your hosting provider to lift this restriction.

    As far as I know the config file in the main directory doesn't require any edits at all anymore (in most cases), but the other config file (in the includes folder) has to be edited.

    I did rename and edit the configuration file in main directory but not in includes directory. Thanks for your quick response. I'll give an another try.

    I have done a fesh installation of vB 5.0.4 recently (local setup) and all I had to do was to rename "config.php.bkp" to "config.php" (in the main directory) and to rename and edit "config.php.new" to "config.php" (in the core/includes directory). After that you should be able to run the installation by browsing to "[your_site]/core/install/install.php".
