    You can be completely ignorant and have an awesome site thanks to all the posts here and on the .org

    www.vbadvanced.com - My recommendation. What's even better...FREE after you buy a vBulletin license

    If you want it installed to where www.gmails.co.uk/index.php is the page, you'll have to install vB in your public_html directory, not a folder in the directory.

    Most use a folder so the frontpage can be a CMS or a full website.

    Right then. I have the forum up and running, I can't believe it. HOWEVER... I have a problem. I can not access the site using www.gmails.co.uk I can only get there using www.gmails.co.uk/forums
    I am using JaguarPC if that helps anyone that can help me. Also, I deleted the index file which is installed by Jag.

    Can anyone offer some advice?

    Here Goes...

    Oh well, here goes. After reading a post on this board I have just orderded some hosting from JaguarPC, and paid them via PayPal. I have also paid my money to vBulletin and am now ready to download some software. I guess the next step is to wait for the hosting company to come back to me with some instructions on what next. Fingers crossed this goes reasonably smoothly I have a PR3 domain name which will be used which gets about 30 to 50 visitors a day.

    I think it mainly depends on what your definiton of easy is. However I can certainly tell you that the degree of difficulty is rather low and simply reading instructions and following procedures will almost always get you far. I've seen people with no experience in PHP and MySQL install vBulletin.

    How Easy For Newbie

    I am a newbie to forums, and have very little experience with the mechanics of how these things work. If I bought a licence do you think would I be able to set my forums up or would I end up paying someone to do this for me? I understand I would need to 'right' server and I see you have a section on your forums where hosts are suggested, which is useful.
