  • Questions

    Before I buy my board there are some questions. After the board is created, what next? Do you just have to know the link and your password, or is there more? Do I have to have it hosted? Well if so, I haven't a scooby about HTML or websites.

    You must purchase a license and install it on a web server that has PHP and MySQL installed. It's quite easy.

      It must be easy if 1000 people use it.

      Any recommendations for hosting?

            Is there really tens of thousands? I guess it's not much in the corporate world, but to me it is

              Just before the year turned 2005 the 65.000th member registered on the web site. If not even half of them has a license .. then it would still be tens of thousends of users running vBulletin. I hate to say this, but even though we fight really hard against piracy, I am sure such a number also applies to piracy. (but we are catching up!)

                True. And you guys always say not many of your customers even register on the forums.

                  Exactly. So I think it is quite safe for me say tens of thousends.

                    How do you actually upload it to a server? And how do you get a server?

                      you need to purchase an account from a hosting company and a domain name.
                      you upload then it using an ftp client such has filezilla
