    are there any vertions of vbulletin that dont require cgi?

  • #2
    None of the versions of vBulletin require CGI. They're all based on PHP and MySQL.

        I believe that vBulletin will run with PHP 4.0.4 and MySQL 3.23, but it's best if you have the latest version of each of those.

          From the features page:
          vBulletin is a powerful community solution that makes it easy to add a forum messaging system to your web site. Unlike other forum software, vBulletin is developed using PHP and MySQL (an amazingly quick open-source database). This solid back end technology allowed us to develop a product that is both blisteringly fast, yet amazingly stable.
          and
          Requirements information
          Minimum Requirements: vBulletin is designed to run on every server that has PHP 4.0.4 or greater and MySQL 3.23 or greater installed.

          Recommended Requirements: For optimum performance, we recommend that vBulletin is run on a server that has MySQL 3.23.33 and PHP 4 (latest verion) installed.
          It is wise to read the features page, it also has a link to the lite version so you can download a free version (featureless but to test) to see if it will install on your web server and you can try the online admin demo. It is all explained on those pages.

          Hope this is enough to get you going! vBulletin is great!

            If you have doubts as to whether your server will support vBulletin, you can do one of two things:

            -Email us at [email protected] and include a link to your host's web site. We'll check it out and see if we can work it out from the information they provide. You can also include a link to a 'phpinfo' page - make an empty file containing this:
            PHP Code:
            <?php
            phpinfo
            ();
            ?>
            Upload it as 'phpinfo.php' and send us a link - this is the most reliable way to confirm that vBulletin is compatible with your server.

            -Email your host with a link to our requirements page and they will be able to confirm for you

                Yes, PHP and MySQL can be installed on different servers. In the vBulletin configuration file, you would put the IP address or hostname of the MySQL server to use this.

                Alternatively it is possible to install MySQL on Windows NT or PHP on Unix if you wanted to have them both on the same server.

                      Just make sure the MySQL server allows remote connections.

                        As Xiphoid mentioned you would need to set the correct permissions on your MySQL database to allow connections from another computer. We can give you the commands to do this after you have purchased vB.

                          But that will probably only apply if you are the root to the linux box.

                            Yes. If you don't have access to set permissions on your Linux server then your server company or host should be able to make the changes easily for you.

                              And if all fails, and the database only allows localhost to connect. then you can check if they have like apache and php on that linux box too, run the forum there in a public viewable dir and on the nt box just put a index.html with meta refresh tag of 0s that loads the other URL to the linux box. At least your online untill you have apache/php/mysql installed on the windows box, or a (decent) hosting provider.
