  • Help Uploading sitebuilder to my server

    Hi people.

    My name is scott and I am a complete forum novice but despite that I have bitten the bullet and purchased a Vbulletin licence and a host package with hostgator and I'm not struggling to upload Vbulletin site builder to my server.

    I've followed the guide, word for word but all I get when I try to run the install script is 'page not found'

    I'm starting to feel massivly overwhelmed and in serious need of some pointers or direction of help.

    Scott

      You will need to edit the files manually then. Please follow the instructions in the documentation here: http://www.vbulletin.com/docs/html/install

      If you have any questions, please post them.

          Rename your /config.php.bkp file to config.php

          Rename your /core/includes/config.php.new file to /core/includes/config.php

          What are the values you have in your /core/includes/config.php file?


          You need to update the following values in your config.php to make a connection with the database:

          $config['Database']['dbname'] = 'XXXX';
          $config['MasterServer']['servername'] = '127.0.0.1';
          $config['MasterServer']['port'] = 3306;
          $config['MasterServer']['username'] = 'YYYY';
          $config['MasterServer']['password'] = 'ZZZZ';

          Replace XXXX with your database name.
          Replace 127.0.0.1 with your servername. If you're on a linux server you can change it to localhost if you want.
          Change 3306 with the port number that your hosting company provides, if any. Otherwise leave it alone.
          Replace YYYY with your database user name.
          Replace ZZZZ with your database user password.

          All of this information can be obtained from your hosting provider.

          If your want better performance and your server supports it, change the following to mysqli:
          $config['Database']['dbtype'] = 'mysql';

          To be notified about potential issues with your database update the following with your email:
          $config['Database']['technicalemail'] = '[email protected]';

          Save that file.

          Now run install/install.php.
