  • install step 3 (of course)

    sorry, I searched but couldn't find anything relevant to this:

    Warning: Host '' is not allowed to connect to this MySQL server in /home/teenaged/public_html/forum/admin/db_mysql.php on line 38

    Warning: Supplied argument is not a valid MySQL-Link resource in /home/teenaged/public_html/forum/admin/db_mysql.php on line 47

    The database has failed to connect because you do not have permission to connect to the server. Please go back to the last step and ensure that you have entered all your login details correctly.

    Three things to check:
    First what do you have for the server name in config.php? If you don't have localhost as the value, try using that.
    Second double-check your username and password in config.php.
    Third if none of the above work send your host the following as an email:
    I am installing vBulletin and I need the following information:
    MySQL username
    MySQL password
    MySQL database name
    MySQL server name
    If I need to setup my database please provide instructions for doing so.

    Thank you,
    your name
