    Do you still have the original email from VO when you opened your account? This contains the login name and password for your account, as well as the IP address.

      Its installed on most major web hosts but they may have their own version of the script or something similar. But most will allow you to create mysql databases+users.

      Thanks Scott.. unfortunatley it aint there
      What I have is :- Web Site Administrator v2.3.01
      which has mysql but all it says is-
      DATABASE NAME DATABASE USER DATABASE SERVER


      MYSQL DATABASE SUMMARY

      Total Databases: 0

      and no way of adding.. I shall get in touch with the webhost..

      Thanks again all

        Well, I'm gonna have to get a little embarassed here. I finally resolved the problem that I wasn't able to access my cPanel and web site on VO. (gulp) It seems that all I had to do was disable my firewall protection. Ooooops!

        That was half the battle. Now it seems that through this whole mess, I've lost the password/username to gain access to cPanel. With head hung low, I've requested it from VO. Maybe I can get back on track.

        After that, I'll have to re-read the posts and start my quest all over. Maybe with some success this time.

          all you need to do is in cpanel's mysql module

          1. create mysql database
          2. create new mysql username and password
          3. add new mysql username to newly created database
          4. upload vB php files to a/c via ftp in ASCII mode
          5. rename config.php.new to config.php in /admin directory and change mysqlusername and mysql password created in step 2 with format siteusername_mysqlusername for mysql username (specific to only cpanel based hosts)
          6. enter your mysql databasename you created in step 1
          7. run /admin/install.php from browser for your site a/c i.e. yourdomain.com/admin/install.php or where ever you uploaded the files
          8. read carefully and click through the steps at the bottom of the page and read instructions given on those pages if any
          9. DO NOT under any circumstances refresh any of the install step pages if you have an error - instead stop there and view source code of page and copy and paste the error in a post on this forum for guidance as to how to proceed

          I got access to my FTP and CPanel. Phewwww...!

          OK, I got up to Step 7 Above and I ran into a little snag. The error message that I'm getting says:

          "Warning: Access denied for user: '[email protected]' (Using password: YES) in ..." What Am I Missing Here? I'm sure it's something somewhere in the set up.

          By the way. I just want to thank everyone for your patience with me and my problems. I can almost see light at the end of the tunnel now.

            This error is due to one or more of the following variables being wrong in your config.php file:

            $dbusername (the database username)
            $dBpassword (the password for that user and database)
            $dbname (the name of the database)

              with cpanel your mysql username will become

              siteusername_mysqlusername this will be shown to you right after you add the mysql username via cpanel's mysql module
