    Please confirm the values entered in the 'includes/config.php' file, contact your host if you do not know what they should be.

        Did you edit the config.php file before trying to install vBulletin?

            Then re-edit it and check the settings that you've entered, mysql is saying that they arte wrong.

                No, won't matter what version you use if the information is bad, try contacting your webhost for the correct information so they can verify it, or create a support ticket in the members area and include your ftp, hosting control panel, and phpmyadmin login info so we can take a look and try to troulbeshoot.
