    If you already have vB installed, it's in the includes directory.

            We really can't, we don't know what software your host has, or what the path to your file is.

            You had to edit the config.php file before you installed the software, and its in your forumfolder/includes.

            I'm going to go out on a limb and guess you have cpanel, and since your forums are in the root of your site, via your ftp it will be public_html/includes/config.php

            Don't get upset with the people who are trying to help, its similiar to a house or an apartment, everyone sets things up differently.

              Normally public_html or www is your websites root folder.
              The forum root is the place you have upladed the vb files. It may be your sites root folder or may be in a sub directory (or folder) based on the way you have configured (/uploaded)your board.

                  I am not sure from where you are trying to edit the config file.
                  The simplest way is to edit the file in your local computer and upload it to the server.
