    1. You don't need to CHMOD 777 that files
    2. In vBulletin 5 you have 2 (TWO) config.php files. It is recommended that you fill the lines manually (in my opinion)
    3a. 1st config.php -> forum root directory (usually forum)
    3b. 2nd config.php -> /core/includes directory

    Make sure ALSO that you have the right link (with /core at the end) in ACP -> Settings -> Options -> Site Name / Address / Contact Details -> Core URL
    Cu Respect / Best Regards / Mit freundlichen Grüßen

        Why do you edit the makeconfig.php file? I never had to do that.

          Can you try to edit the two config files manually ?
          * rename /config.php.bkp to /config.php and edit $config['baseurl'] to to your forum base URL
          * rename /core/includes/ to /core/includes/config.php and modify it with the required information ( mysql hostname,database name, database username and database user password).

          Then run the upgrade script again.

          Don't forget to take a full database backup before upgrading your forums, Also I noticed that your forums are Arabic and vBulletin 5 currently doesn't support RTL.
