  • Help with install

    I've downloaded vBulletin 5 - unzipped it - and uploaded all the contents of UPLOAD to my forum root directory. I've amended the config files and made sure none of the version 3 files are left in that directory.

    Instructions say go to vbulletin_root and install/upgrade.php e.g. where my forum board is
    However the upgrade.php is in this directory

    When I run that I get the following error:-
    Fatal error: Call to undefined function mysqli_report() in /home/wwwleisu/public_html/help/core/vb/database/mysqli.php on line 249

    What am I doing wrong?

    It sounds like you installed the forums into a /help directory, not into the root. If so, you will need to change this line in your .htaccess file:

    #RewriteBase /

    to this line:

    RewriteBase /help/

    Also, what version of PHP is on the server? And is myslqi and available option on your server (you may want to try just "mysql" instead)?

    Please don't PM or VM me for support - I only help out in the threads.
