    In the mean time - there are some location for download foxserver :

    http://twtelecom.dl.sourceforge.net/...v-3.0beta5.exe

    http://belnet.dl.sourceforge.net/sou...v-3.0beta5.exe

    http://cesnet.dl.sourceforge.net/sou...v-3.0beta5.exe

    It's the last 3.0 beta 5 version ( you can also download gold 3.0 edition) from :
    http://easynews.dl.sourceforge.net/s...oxServ-3.0.exe

    But I recomend you to use the newest one ...
    I will do the tutorial for U guyz ...

    After you do that you should put your vBulletin into directory Foxserw/www and after that make the correct changes in admin/config.php ... that's all..
    It took me bout 10 minutes to run the forum on XP...

    Realy good one ...

    The 'forums/forum' means nothing. It's just an artifact of the eror process. None of the rest matters until you are running the correct version on both the database and files.

    There was a temporary problem with the Members Area download function. It should be fixed now. Try downloading 2.2.8 again.

    Yep, I just returned to AZ after 14 years in Northern California. Frankly it's good to be back home. My wife and I have been taking day trips around the state. We haven't made it to Flagstaff yet although we did go the Prescott, Sedona and Oak Creek on a couple of trips.

    You are running a 2.2.8 database with 2.2.6 files. You can't do this. You need to upload the 2.2.8 files.

    strange, the path looks wrong

    should be...

    http://localhost/forum/

    instead of...

    http://localhost/forums/forum/

    could that be it? and how would i change it? just reinstall or something? or can you change it in the config.php file?

    ...also maybe im getting some of these problems because I think im using the same files from my site...heheh, shoulda told you that too...also steve, how come when I try to DL vb 2.2.8 It doesnt transfer anything? just a 0k file?

    We need to see the entire error message. Right-click on the error page and go to View/Source. Then cut-n-paste the error message here.

    Localhost installation help...

    Okay im installing vbulletin on my local machine(win2k) for testing purposes, I have a license and run it on a server, but i heard it was okay if we install it on our own machine to test out upgrades/changes locally before upgrading out sites.

    Also, bear with me, this is my first time installing apache/php/mysql so i dont really know what im doing...

    so that being said...

    I installed phptriad, which as you know installs apache/php/mysql. Then I started apache, apache is working fine...I then started mysql...which also seems to be working fine...everything seems to be working fine except this...

    I placed vb 2.2.6(because for some reason I cannot download version 2.2.8, which is what my site is running)...in c:\apache\htdocs\...

    I modified config.php and added the information location: "localhost" username: "root" password: "" and dbase name: forum-forum (dbase I had already created in phpmyadmin).

    I then pointed my browser to http://localhost/forum/install.php...went through all the steps, the installer created all of the tables and did everything without a hitch...finally at the last step where it says "you have SUCCESSFULLY installed vbulletin, now go to your admin cp here"...I clicked the link and got this error...

    There seems to have been a slight problem with the Forum-Forum database.
    Please try again by pressing the refresh button in your browser.

    An E-Mail has been dispatched to our Technical Staff, who you can also contact if the problem persists.

    We apologise for any inconvenience.
    I then tried pointing my browser to http://localhost/forum/

    same error...

    helpppp?

    I can post variables, files and such if you need to see them.
