  • Making the install process 1 step easier

    I find that installing vbulletin is super easy as is but knowing that there are a lot of people that have no idea about how to edit a file, it might be a good option to add the following fields so the information can be included in the file the way the CGI chebang is.

    - MySQL server
    - username
    - password
    - database name

    Inspired by Steve's post here:

    - FTP server, username and password
    - MySQL server, username, password and database name
    - URL of homepage and forums
    - Forum Admin login info

    Even that form doesn't actually edit the config.php file. We do that manually.
