  • Installed OK, but now can't access Main Forum homepage

    Hi all - I'm new here, and I've got a problem.

    I have downloaded and installed vBulletin 2.2.6. In my web tree, I installed the vBulletin scripts, etc. into a folder called "forums/" (so "forums/" now contains the folowing: "extras/", "upload/", and "pkzip.cfg"). On a side note, does anybody know what "pkzip.cfg" is??

    Anyway, I run through the installation, PHP creates the database and all the tables, and I log into the control panel; everything is fine. However, then when I click on the link in the upper-right hand corner of the page that says "Go to your Forums Home Page", I get taken to this page:


    which then displays NOTHING. The page is blank.

    If anyone can help me, please let me know - I will be glad to provide further details if necessary. Thanks!

    oh - as a follow up to my above post:

    I have also tried installing the entire contents of the "upload/" directory directly into the "forums/" directory:

    i.e. : now - forums/
    +-------- extras
    +-------- upload
    | |
    | +-------- admin
    | |
    | +-------- images
    | |
    | +-------- mod
    | |
    | +-------- *.php
    +-------- pkzip.cfg

    i.e. : before - forums/
    +-------- admin
    +-------- images
    +-------- mod
    +-------- *.php

    Neither method of installation seemed to help. Any ideas?

      Make sure you have the correct URL setting in the vBulletin Options of the Admin CP.

        Thanks - as it turns out, that wasn't the solution, but after several attempts at installing the board from scratch, I finally got it to work. Thanks for your suggestion though. :-)
