    Once install is completed, you should be good to go. I've done installs where it's needed refreshing over a hundred times and it's still been ok once up and running.

    As stated, make sure php and MySQL are up to date for each subsequent upgrade, although this is true for any site regardless of any install issues.

    Once it's installed it will run fine. I have several clients who use GoDaddy. Just make sure you pay careful attention to PHP and MySQL versions before upgrading.

It's every GoDaddy customer. That's why most people advise against using them to host vBulletin.

    Need to know what steps it's sticking on and what error is shown.

    Also, make sure once you're on upgrade.php that you try refreshing the page if it stops.
    It's doing the same thing on local host too Mark... After finally refreshing upgrade a bunch of times, it finally finished where it left off on where it was stuck for each instance.. Why does this happen? How could godaddy have anything to do with it? Is this a known issue, why isn't it fixed? This doesn't happen with v4.

    Vbulletin 5 Connect Stuck

    Doing a fresh install of vbulletin 5 using php version 5.4... During the installation process it got stuck at 73%, I changed the url from install to upgrade and then it got stuck at 14%. Refreshed and did upgrade again, it finished really fast and I hit go to admin page, no CSS on the page at all. Went back to upgrade again and now its stuck once again at 14%.

    Whats the deal here guys? Is this known as a regular bug? My host is godaddy, which shouldn't make a difference.. Some help would be much appreciated, thanks!
