    Not a problem. I was multi-tasking and saving the world with my other hand!

    Son of a Crap!

    Thanks Sir Machol... Who knew such a little thing as forgetting to remove the .new extention to the config.php could cause such a problem. My apologies for wasting your time, you could have been elsewhere saving the world.

    Thanks again greatly...
    Dan

    Normally you don't. But if there are some strange permissions then it could cause a problem.

    Fill out a support ticket at:

    http://www.vbulletin.com/members/support_form.php

    Be sure to include the login info to your Admin CP and FTP.

    Are you sure you're looking at the 'config.php' file in the admin directory? Also make sure that db_mysql.php is in that direcotory as well.

    BTW what are the file permissions on these file?
    Thank you for such quick replys thus far BTW...

    This is funny, because I am sure that I am not doing anything different then normal. I did in fact check just to make sure and yes I am dealing with config.php in the admin directory. I did in fact double check that db_mysql.php per your suggestion was in that directory as well.

    I am confused by your question:
    BTW what are the file permissions on these file?

    Are you talking about chmod? I thought we didn't have to do that.

    I'm not quite sure what you mean?

    When I check config.php it shows (copy and pasted):

    // type of database running
    // (only mysql is supported at the moment)
    $dbservertype="mysql";

    Isn't this correct?

    Will it not go as smoothly as installing it into a forums sub directory? I've installed vBulletin mutiple times without a single error. When I try to install it into the root directory, it doesn't seem to like that.

    I get everying uploaded via FTP, then go to:
    http://www.mytruedomain.com/admin/install.php

    I click:
    Click here to continue with the next step -->

    Normally the next screen is already populated with the correct information that I entered into the config.php file under the admin folder.

    This time, all boxes were blank and when checking the 'update config.php file' I get an error.

    Warning: Failed opening './db_.php' for inclusion (include_path='') in /www/#/########/htdocs/admin/install.php on line 334

    Fatal error: Cannot instantiate non-existent class: db_sql_vb in /www/#/########/htdocs/admin/install.php on line 336

    # = intentionally removed contents

    Any ideas as to what I am doing wrong?

    Must I install it in a second directory? (i.e. forums)

    Can I installed it in my root directory being that I don't need a welcome page or anything close to that.
