    Also be sure to set this in config.php:

    // hostname or ip of server
    $servername="localhost";

    Pfft, they should be able to do it literally in a few seconds...

    Do you know if your host offers CPanel? For that matter, who is your host?

    Thanks!

    I contacted my host and got all the info that I need to input - then they told me they need to set up the mysql database and it will take 24 hours.

    Does that sound right? Anything I can do myself?

    The short version of the installation manual:
    Code:
    <?php
    /////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
    // Please note that if you get any errors when connecting, //
    // that you will need to email your host as we cannot tell //
    // you what your specific values are supposed to be        //
    /////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
    
    // type of database running
    // (only mysql is supported at the moment)
    $dbservertype="mysql";
    
    // hostname or ip of server
    $servername="localhost";
    
    // username and password to log onto db server
    $dbusername="[b][color=#009900]root[/color][/b]";
    $dbpassword="[b][color=#FF0000][i]password[/i][/color][/b]";
    
    // name of database
    $dbname="[b][color=#0000FF]vbulletin[/color][/b]";
    
    // technical email address - any error messages will be emailed here
    $technicalemail = "[b][color=#990099][email protected][/color][/b]";
    
    // use persistant connections to the database
    // 0 = don't use
    // 1 = use
    $usepconnect = 0;
    
    // which users are allowed to view the admin log
    // separate each userid with a comma
    $canviewadminlog = "1";
    
    // which users are allowed to prune the admin log
    // separate each userid with a comma
    $canpruneadminlog = "";
    
    ?>
    1. Rename config.php.new to config.php
    2. Edit the following:
    Change the green text to your username
    Change the red text to your password
    Change the blue text to the name of your database
    Change the purple text to your e-mail addres

    If you don't know any of these values (I hope you know your e-mail address, though ) you can contact your host; I guarantee you they know how to set up vBulletin.

    These are the error messages I keep getting - what am I putting in the config.php file that is wrong?



    Warning: Unknown MySQL Server Host 'cheapest-hosting' (2) in /usr/www/htdocs/ereeftank/forum/admin/db_mysql.php on line 40

    Warning: MySQL Connection Failed: Unknown MySQL Server Host 'cheapest-hosting' (2) in /usr/www/htdocs/ereeftank/forum/admin/db_mysql.php on line 40

    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.
