        You need to edit ./includes/config.php
        // ****** USERS WITH QUERY RUNNING PERMISSIONS ******
        // The users specified here will be allowed to run queries from the control panel.
        // See the above entries for more information on the format.
        // Please note that the ability to run queries is quite powerful. You may wish
        // to remove all user IDs from this list for security reasons.
        $config['SpecialUsers']['canrunqueries'] = 'YOUR_USER_ID_HERE';

                      OK, bare with me here... I don't want to screw this up.....

                      I am doing a new install of the blog on my 3.6.8 patch 2. By following the above instructions, I will be overwriting some folders (image folder) that doesn't have all the images of the original?

                      Are there different installation directions for a new install? as opposed to an upgrade?

                        No, none of the Blog files will overwrite anything. They are all uniquely named files.

                          Wellll, not exactly. I see a folder named "images" in the blog files and there is already an "images" folder on my server in the same spot the blog files will go? wasup with that?

                            The images in the blogs /images/ folder will be added into vbulletins /images/ folder when you upload the file.

                              Yes, exactly. The files in the Blog images folder are all uniquely named and will not overwrite any existing vB files. Sorry I did not make that clear.
