    By shell access, you mean Linux shell, right? (I have zero Linux experience.)

      vBulletin's installation process is probably the simplest of all forums I've seen. All you have to do is edit the config.php file with the proper MySQL information, run the install script, and there you have it. Installed.

        With vbulletin the time it takes to load the files onto your host and setup a mysql database (cpanel/plesk best). Then you just click the next button 13 times or so... its quite painless.

        adding styles (layouts etc depends on if you buy a style or code one your self which in it's self is quite fun) if you buy a premade layout for your forum once you have it setup it takes about 5 mins to upload art files via ftp and 15 seconds to grab style xml and updoad it ..

          There are many people who would install it for you without needing anything it return. But you could probably do it yourself, it's very easy.

            Joel of http://www.vbwebmaster.com/ did the install for me. It was really nice of him.

              Installing vBulletin is AMAZINGLY easy. I was terrified I'd mess it up when I first installed it, and afterwards I was like "That's it?"

              As others have said, it really is a piece of cake. Even for a novice...

                  It appears all the "it's easy" comments assume familiarity with online hosting environments and with Linux/Apache/MySQL/PHP, of which I have none.
                  Anyway, as I said, I got help from someone and the forum is live: http://forums.33ponce.org/

                    On the positive note, welcome to the world of VB ... there's no turning back now, you know... Once you're here, you're here for life
