  • Install script stuck step 2

    Last year I was able to figure this out.. now im stuck.. I figured out the last problem I was on, now I am confused here. Where do I find out what the database name is?

    Step 2) Connect to the database
    Attempting to attach to database
    Connect failed: unexpected error from the database.
    Error number: 1102
    Error description: Incorrect database name ''
    Please ensure that the database and server is correctly configured and try again.

    You are most likely adding the incorrect information into includes/config.php file.

    This is the name of your database and not forum url address
    PHP Code:
        //    ****** DATABASE NAME ****** 
        //    This is the name of the database where your vBulletin will be located. 
        //    This must be created by your webhost. 
    $config['Database']['dbname'] = 'forum'
    You add the usernamr and password that you enter to get into host cPanel into these fields. You replace 'root'; with cPanel login username 'your_cPanel_username';. You do the same for password 'your_cPanel_password';
    PHP Code:
        //    ****** MASTER DATABASE USERNAME & PASSWORD ****** 
        //    This is the username and password you use to access MySQL. 
        //    These must be obtained through your webhost. 
    $config['MasterServer']['username'] = 'root'
    $config['MasterServer']['password'] = ''
