  • Can not install VB 5 Connect

    Dear VB Staff,
    Could you please show me how to install VB 5.1.3 which i have just bought yesterday. I try ty find out but it's quite hard, i don't know why have different code if compare with video tutorial from VB.
    Sorry when i am a newbie.

    Is it right when i do like that:
    - My website: http://www.aloaus.com
    - Create database in cPanel , i used mySQLwizard. Then, i will have database name: abc,
    Privileged Users
    abc_admin, pass: abc_pass
    - my config.php in root forum is quite new. ( as ref ) --> i didn't see anything to change as a video tutorial.
    - what should i do with config.php in core/includes/ ? ( as ref )
    - Video i followed: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_tmCHZvm8j4

    Best Regards,
    Jonathan

    You really don't want to be attaching your config files in the forum. I've removed them.

    Your database needs to be set up with all privileges. Your hosts should be able to help with this.

    You should end up with a database name, database username, and database user password.

    You need to rename this file:

    /core/includes/config.php.new

    To:

    /core/includes/config.php

    Then 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';

      To be fair to you, the vB5 manual doesn't tell you how to do this anymore; the vB4 manual used to.

      The config.php in the root of your site doesn't need to be changed, other than to change the name (at least on my installation).
      The config.php file needs to be changed in core includes as described by Mark B.
      You must remember to put the .htaccess file in the root of your site. You will see a .htaccess.txt file there as well but that's there so that Mac users can see it. Both the .htaccess file and the .htaccess.txt file are the same except for the file extension. If you are using a Mac you upload the .htaccess.txt file to the root of your site then you rename it .htaccess i.e. you just remove the *.txt file extension.

          If you set it the same as the 'technical email' then you would have put that in your core config.php file; so if you know you used the same email address for the technical email as your main admin email then you would try there. Otherwise, if you know the admin name you can login with your username and password, go to

          User Settings
          Click the tab saying 'Account'

          and you will find the email address associated with the admin user there.

          If you've forgotten your Admin password you can use the password reset function to get an email sent to you and just check your inboxes to see which one you used. Or you could register with your forum as a new, different user id and perhaps use the contact form to contact the Admin user.

            Actually it does but some weird bug is preventing the vBulletin 5 manual from showing to all users. Developers are working on it. This is also described in the vb5readme.html file distributed to the customers.
