    Quick vBulletin install Guide

    1.FTP all files to server
    If your not using the KeyGen version skip to step 6

    2.Chmod all files and folders to 777
    (except keygen.php)

    3.Open keygen.php in browser and hit the go button
    (this will insert a key to all nessesary files)

    4.Once done copy and paste the key and customer number to a text file and store somewhere safe <----Inportant and delete keygen.php

    5.Now Chmod all files back to 644 and folders to 755

    6.Open includes/config.php.new and edit with your details
    (there are how-to guidelines in this file telling you what goes where so should be easy to work out)

    7.Once this is done save and rename to config.php

    8.Go to install/install.php and open in browser
    you will see a page asking for your customer number
    (hope you did step 4...lol) enter c/n and press ok

    9.Now just follow the steps in the next few pages

    10.Once all this is done delete install/install.php file and rename install folder to something else for extra security

    Follow steps 1 to 7 above then...
    1. delete install/install.php
    2. Run install/upgrade.php and just follow the steps in the next few pages

    Well thats the basics, hope this has helped

    Ednlesskiss have you typed this into your browser 'www.yousitename.com/keygen.php' It should bring you to a site and when you done Done Ready to go, It might give you an error, it dosent actually matter if it does or not, but its always good to have it. Now go to www.yousitename.com/install/install.php and go thorugh the 13 steps!

    When you run the keygen, after it has inserted the license number in all the files it will provide you with license and customer numbers. As Hoxxy said, be sure to save/record both numbers because you will need the customer number when you start the install.

    Did you check to see if the MySQL server was on localhost or did it have a specific address? Most free sites have a server address you have to enter into config.php.

    And a "Access denied for user" means the details for the user and pass are wrong.
