    Unfortunately, if you make changes to your .htaccess in cPanel, it will overwrite existing contents.

    Set your site indexing value in cPanel... Look at the .htaccess file on your site. Copy the content from it.

    Open the default .htaccess, paste the contents from cPanel's file at the bottom. Save. Upload this file to your server. Keep a backup of it on your local machine for future edits.

    1. Downloaded and Unzipped vb5_connect_5-0-0_Beta_26_*****.zip

    Following these instructions very carefully here using Notepad++ in default ANSI mode:

    https://www.vbulletin.com/forum/entr...etin-5-connect

    2. Renamed /config.php.bkp to config.php.

    3. Edited it like this:
    Changed:
    $config['baseurl'] = 'http://www.yourdomain.com/folder';
    To:
    $config['baseurl'] = 'http://www.mydomain.com/forum';

    4. In /upload/core/includes/config.php.new renamed to config.php, edited as such:

    Changed
    :
    $config['Database']['dbname'] = 'forum';
    to
    $config['Database']['dbname'] = 'domain_dbName';

    Changed:
    $config['Database']['technicalemail'] = '[email protected]';
    to:
    $config['Database']['technicalemail'] = '[email protected]';

    Changed:
    $config['MasterServer']['username'] = 'root';
    $config['MasterServer']['password'] = '';
    to:
    $config['MasterServer']['username'] = 'user_sqlDB';
    $config['MasterServer']['password'] = 'ComplexPass;

    Changed:
    $config['Misc']['forumpath'] = '';
    to:
    $config['Misc']['forumpath'] = '/forum';

    5. Went to http://www.mydomain.com/forum/core/install/install.php

    6. Entered Customer Number and hit enter.

    7. Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in /home/jfkrewco/public_html/forum/core/includes/config.php on line 71

    If it had worked:
    8. Delete install.php and makeconfig.php files from core/install directory.


    $config['MasterServer']['password'] = 'ComplexPass;

    that line is wrong it must be $config['MasterServer']['password'] = 'ComplexPass'; you forget to add '

    5. FTP-ed all in the /upload directory to my web hoster into the /forum directory (Default in ASCII mode)

    Even though you're using Notepadd++, make sure it's set to save that file in ANSI format, not UTF-8 via the 'Encoding' dropdown.

    Please use a recommended editor to avoid issues with the formatting and display of the file. PHP files are standard ASCII/ANSI plain text files and should not be saved as UTF-8 with BOM.

    Check if config.php not saved as UTF-8 with BOM and if it has an extra character on its begin

    Ok,
    I changed to a new hoster (aSmallOrange.com)

    To the letter I followed these instructions:

    https://www.vbulletin.com/forum/entr...etin-5-connect

    FTP-ed all the files to the domain.com/forum dir

    Went to the isntall.php location: http://www.domain.com/forum/core/install/install.php

    Now, i get this awesome error:

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in /home/jfkrewco/public_html/forum/core/includes/config.php on line 71

    Line 71 show no errors to my inexperienced eye:

    $config['MasterServer']['usepconnect'] = 0;


    This is the default /core/includes/config.php except for the changes mentioned in the site above.



    now what?
    Should this be so problematic?

    This is the 3rd web hoster I've tried but at least the .htaccess stopped breaking things

    403 is forbidden. You should ask your hosting provider why this isn't working.

    Forbidden

    You don't have permission to access / on this server.

    That's a hosting issue I'm afraid - your host will need to address this.

    Looks like either the forum url, or the config.php files are setup incorrectly.

    Due to how long we've been working with you on this, i'm going to escalate this specific issue into the ticket system for you, to try to get it resolved properly.

    I'll need your AdminCP login info, and an ftp/ssh login.

    Well, i got the install to finally go through:

    http://jfkrew.com/

    Now, any link you click results in an error message.

    What's this?

    I followed every single install step and verified each and still have problems with a default install.
