    They should enter the subadmins userids in the config.php file before they leave. It's not difficult...

    I do. It's just that some admins might be skeptical of giving out FTP access to their sub-admins, but might want to allow them to give superadminship to other people while they're away. Say, if they're taking an extended break or something.

    Blah, I dunno.

    If you don't have FTP access to your own website then you need to find a new host. FTP access is one of the requirements of installing and using vBulletin.

    Well, ok. If you don't consider modifying config.php to be hacking, then it isn't hacking. It still requires whoever modifies config.php to have FTP access, which isn't at all necessary for admins to do under version 2.

    That is in no way correct. Modifying config.php is not "hacking".

    Hm. I'd actually suggest getting a new host, but eh. I suppose that's just me.

    Well you got it on the dot. My hosting company only gives me 1 mysql database. In this database I now have my web site tables, my server stats tables, and my vbulletin files. All my site tables have prefix btb_ and my stats halve prefix hlstats_ all my vbulletin tables have no prefix. So they get mixed in with the rest.

    I thought there was a way to add a prefix to vbulletin tables as well. But maybe it was vbulletin 3 that i read it in, though I couldn't get that one working correctly. I got it installed and the cpanel was more advanced by no one could create or edit forums only I had access even though administrators supposed to have access. So I came back to a stable version I'm familar with using.

    In vB2 it would require extensive hacking.

    In vB3 it can be changed in the config.php file.

    How to add table prefix
    by Veniamin
    My database doesn't have table prefix for vBulletin. I want to add prefix to differentiate vBulletin native tables from the third party tables. Is there a way to make it happen during the upgrade?
