  • Please help me install my forum

    Hello,
    I am trying to install my forum on my site and i have gone through all of the manual so far following it step by step but i cant get to my directory.
    Here is a picture of how it is uploaded on my ftp site


    Now whenever i go to my site and enter http://www."mysite".com/forums/install/install.php I see it loading in the menu bar and then just take me to a white screen
    no install script login appears.
    How can i fix this because i really want to get my forum going.

    Thank you

          You uploaded into FTP folder? you should have a folder named: public_html or httpdocs

          What type of FTP Client are you using, as I can give you a video tutorial link for you or you can select it yourself.

                silly question, but did you pay for the domain through the host you are with?
                like what im saying the nameservers are pointed to your server right yeah?

                as again sorry for what maybe a silly question.

                    That can take 1 hour to 72 hours, but you should be able to run install/install.php. You did create a database for your forum and enter the information into config.php?

                      Please download and run this script if you have not already done so.
                      The script will evaluate your setup and tell you which part is not up to par for running vBulletin satisfactory.

                          If you have godaddy, then you would enter something like this into that field.

                          p41mysql45.secureserver.net.

                              No, that is an example. You are not gettin any errors at all? Is it possible to private message the link to your site.
