  • Table Prefix

    Ok, i'm in the process of signing up to a new host and am waiting for the website to actually be live, i can access the site via ftp to upload my vBulletin files, which i've done.
    Sadly, when i try to access my site via any browser to fully install vBulletin i get error messages saying the site can't be found, which, i assume may be down to the fact it's just been created and i need to wait some more time.

    In any case, i have a question regarding table prefix.
    I have created a database on my server, now i see that i can create a table in there, if i simply create a table by whatever name i choose is this the table prefix that i need to insert into the config.php file?

    If you have created a config.php file with database name, password, and the host (all usually found in cPanel, LayeredPanel...etc.), you just insert those values into the Config.php file. The installation will then create the needed tables for you. A prefix is not required for tables. Hope I helped!

      Before we continue, you're talking about a "new" host, did you already have vBulletin installed on the old host and are you moving it to a new host? Or are you doing a completely first time fresh install with no old data?

        I have 2 licenses, one is already going on one host and now i bought this one on a new host and am doing a brand new fresh install.

        I can now get to my website with no "www" after "htpp://" which is ok for me, i guess the site is still propogating, but, i would still like to do the install and get up and running

          Then make a new database on the new hosts' control panel. With a new user, and a pass for this user, and link the user with granting ALL permissions to that database.

          cpanel usually gives an example , this should disclose if any prefix_

          if your login is say blahblah and you create a database called myvbdb, then sometimes with hosts it becomes blahblah_myvbdb

          You can let vb install into this with or without table prefix (which you set in config.php)

            I have made a database on the host server.
            When you say a new user, do you mean a VB user or a host server user?
            If a host server then surely my details are all that is required?
