    public_html is your web root directory.

    You need to copy all the files and folders inside upload to public_html.

    Do not upload the /upload/ directory itself.

    $config['baseurl'] = 'http://example.com'
    So if I want my baseurl be like that :

    http://merenguista.com , i need to copy the /upload/ in my web root directory and not in public_html ??

    Would it be a big job for the developers to include a file with those instructions in the download?
    No, it wouldn't. I have to finish writing it though and with 16-20 hour days, things get pushed back. Sorry. The manual has been updated with complete instructions on how to install and upgrade to vBulletin 5 though. Including how to edit the configuration files. I felt this was more important than the readme file.

    I'm sure it will be added as soon as possible- as you can imagine though there is already many things that are in line.

    Most users can use makeconfig.php to create their 2 config.php files: https://www.vbulletin.com/forum/show...iles-in-1-step
    But if you are an advanced user, using SSH it is best to manually edit the files.

    config.php.bkp in your top vbulletin directory-
    Rename it to config.php and make the following edits-

    If installing in a folder on your domain (vb5 folder in this case):
    $config['baseurl'] = 'http://example.com/vb5'

    If installing in your web root directory:
    $config['baseurl'] = 'http://example.com'


    Base URL Core is same as above but with /core added to the end...
    $config['baseurl_core'] = 'http://example.com/vb5/core'
    or
    $config['baseurl_core'] = 'http://example.com/core'

    Next up is Core Path. This is the path in the file system to the core directory. Linux systems use / slashes and Windows systems use \ slashes which must be escaped so every one \ becomes two \\
    Windows Example:
    $config['core_path'] = 'C:\\xampp\\htdocs\\vb5\\core';
    or
    $config['core_path'] = 'C:\\xampp\\htdocs\\core';

    Linux Example:
    $config['core_path'] = '/home/users/yourusername/vb5/core';
    or
    $config['core_path'] = '/home/users/yourusername/core';

    Admincp direcotry... This is for the front-end Admin CP directory - I would leave it as is for the Beta
    $config['admincpdir'] = 'admincp';


    Cookie Prefix- Just make sure it matches the cookie prefix used in the other config.php file... bb is default.
    $config['cookie_prefix'] = 'bb';

    If you're beta testing you will likely want to turn on debug mode, it is at the bottom of the file-
    CHange
    $config['debug'] = false;
    to
    $config['debug'] = true;

    Everything else can be left the same unless you have reason to change it.


    Next you must also edit the file config.php.new in the /core/includes/ directory, but this file is the same as the config.php file you are used to from VB4 & VB3.
    Be sure to turn on debug mode in it too if you want debug mode.

    started a topic What to edit?

    What to edit?

    There are no instructions in the download that what to do with the config files.
    There are only two files in it:
    vb4_readme.html
    vb4_readme.txt

    In vB4 the the one only file is in a different location.

    After the succesful installation I see only: "Couldn't read config file config.php"
