  • Pre sale question sort of

    We purchased vbulletin (owned license) some months ago. Started having problems with our webhost and have switched to yahoo hosting (don't ask why, not smart). We've contacted support and seems they'll be able to do a pro-install assuming we pay again (no complaints on that). However, I have tried to run the script to see if vbulletin will work on our server and I"m not sure what it's telling me. How do i know if it passes or not?
    For what it's worth, we need to create a database file on yahoo's server I guess so I'm not sure if that is part of the problem running the script.
    Thanks.
    Mike

      Okay, brain fade for a bit. It failed miserably. Most failures gave this reason:

      "vBulletin requires that the mysql username has create, select, update, insert, delete, alter and drop privledges, contact your host and ask them to adjust these privledges"

        Your db user will need to have full permissions to the database.

            Your employee status has nothing to do with this. You need to setup a database on thes server and a user that has full access to this db.

              what i meant was that i *did* set up a database on their server.

                Okay. However the error you got shows that the db user you specified did not have full permissions to that database which is what I've been trying to tell you.

                  Create a new database, and user. Make sure all permissions are ticked. Redo the config file. Thats all. Pretty much what steve has been trying to say.

                    Quite simply, vBulletin is not compatible with Yahoo Hosting.

                        Proprietary control panel/backend. Questionable MySQL/PHP support. Various permissions issues that are not 'normal' for web hosting. And I believe they run with safe mode on.
