      but i haveing doubts about wether i can do the configue file thing
      not sure on some things
      what does this mean

      $config['Database']['dbname'] This value should be altered to state the name of the database that will contain your vBulletin installation on the database server.

      $config['Database']['technicalemail'] An email address should be entered here. All database error messages will be forwarded to the email address provided.

      $config['MasterServer']['servername'] This sets the address of your database server. On most installations the database server is located on the same computer as the web server, in which case the address should be set to 'localhost', otherwise use the address of the database server as supplied by your web host.

      $config['MasterServer']['username'] This variable contains the username provided to you by your host for connecting to your database server.

      $config['MasterServer']['password'] The password that accompanies the database username should be entered here.

      not exactly sure what this means

        i knew i would have problems with this
        please help

        i am going through the install
        after i edited config.php
        i am getting stuck at step 2
        this is the error

        Error description: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Access denied for user 'doubled'@'localhost' (using password: YES) /home/auspool/public_html/forum2/includes/class_core.php on line 274

        The database has failed to connect because you do not have permission to connect to the server. Please confirm the values entered in the 'includes/config.php'

        is the database name the folder i uploaded vb to eg forum ??

        // ****** MASTER DATABASE USERNAME & PASSWORD ******
        // This is the username and password you use to access MySQL.
        // These must be obtained through your webhost.

        i dont understand this part

          You'll need to post in the support forums. We cant provide support in the presales forum.

          Also, you'll need to contact your host for the correct values for that file.
