  • A special forum for the Vbulletingly Challenged

    You need to create a board for those vbulletinly challenged like myself. Those people who only know how to do simple update to the their site because it was shown to them, and are oblivious to upgrades, config.php, mod, hacks, vbadvance or any of the jargon synonymous with vbulletin.

    The error you are getting is with a vBadvanced product, not vBulletin

    http://www.thenewstlucian.com/community/

    though you also have a database error on your vBulletin site.

    mysql_connect(): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)

    You need to re-edit the config.php file and include the correct information
    i had a perfectly functioning site, with allowed my 300 member to do what they had been doing for more than 3 yrs. $60 and a couple of upgrades later i have a piece of trash which leave me the reourse to spend more money. Now all i have is a worthless service subscription, because i am communicating with intellectuals whose response might as well have been hieroglyphics on an egyptian tomb; come on guys...

    please put strong recommendation in your update instructions that you SHOULD NOT UPDATE without a solid knowledge of vbulletin. And that it would cost you more tha $60 to resolve any issues you may encounter...


    SO LONG DEAR SITE,

    I cannot begin to address the vBadvanced issue without more information. But the folks over at the vBadvanced forum should be able to assist you for free.

    As for your second problem, simply re-use the old config-file. Unless you're upgrading from something really, really old, it will work just fine.

      As Fusion said, visit us over at vBadvanced.com and we'll try to help with the vBa problem.

      By any chance... did you upgrade from an older version of vB to vB 3.7.x? If so, you'll need to update the version of vBa CMPS you're using.

        SO LONG DEAR SITE,
        How simple do you want people to make it? There comes a point where it shoudn't be unreasonable to expect someone to understand the concept of editing a text file or that they can't support 3rd party addons that have been added to the site.

          Actually, the 'solid knowledge' is to not upload a config.php over your working configuration.

            Hi, I understand exactly the dilemma of "thenewstlucian" as I am also in that same boat. If I am in doubt I ask before I do something I am not sure off. Get yourself a network going of people who can help you and who are willing to help you. The Best of luck and do not give up.

              ... and that is a bit of advice that everybody should apply to all facets of life, not just vBulletin.
