  • Post Install Troubleshooting

    Hey friends,

    I've encountered something that is probably an easy fix, but after doing some digging I can't find a solution. I've done the following steps below, and ran the installation. After the install is where I encounter my problem. I've attached the image which shows the styling not configured, as well I don't have access to my AdminCP. Please help.
    • After Purchasing, download vBulletin Connect from the your Member's Area.
    • Unzip the downloaded package on your local machine. Depending on your hosting provider and internet connection this can take some time.
    • In your vBulletin files there will be a directory called upload. Enter it.
    • Rename config.php.bkp to config.php (ren config.php.bkp config.php)
    • Enter the /upload/core/includes directory.
    • Rename to config.php (ren config.php)
    • Edit config.php and change these values to match your information.
      • $config['Database']['dbname'] = 'databasename';
      • $config['Database']['technicalemail'] = '[email protected]';
      • $config['MasterServer']['servername'] = 'localhost'; // may be referred to as a host name
      • $config['MasterServer']['port'] = 3306;
      • $config['MasterServer']['username'] = 'username';
      • $config['MasterServer']['password'] = 'password';
      • Make sure that all values are to the right of the equal sign (=) and between the single quotes ('). If you do not know these values they can be obtained from your hosting provider.
      • No other values need to be changed in this file for a basic installation of vBulletin Connect.
    • Using your SFTP Client, upload the contents of the upload directory (including all sub-directories and files) to your server. Place these files in the directory where you want to install vBulletin.
    • Rename htaccess.txt to .htaccess (the leading period is required). If you are using Filezilla, you can do this by right-clicking on the file and choosing rename on the context menu. This can also be done from the Windows Command Line before uploading the files to the server.

    I should also mention that I run the forum out of a sub directory, so the domain should be

      This means rewrite rules are not working correctly on the server.

      Assuming you've definitely renamed the .htaccess file correctly, ask your host to check that mod_rewrite is running, and that allow_override is set to 'All'.
