laugh How to run a vbulletin program on your pc - 08-03-2007, 01:10 PM

Here are a couple of simple steps on how to run your vB on your PC:

Installing Apache, PHP, MySQL, phpMyAdmin, etc...
  • Download the newest version of PHPTriad (http://sourceforge.net/project/showf...ckage_id=93 90).
    • This is a very easy to use all-in-one pack.
  • Run the .exe, and let the installer do the job for you.
  • Now go to C:\apache\mysql\bin\, and run winmysqladmin.
    • If, and it probably will, it asks you for a password, enter root as password, and password as password.
  • Goto your start menu > PHPtriad > Apache Console > Stop Apache
  • Now go to start menu > PHPtriad > Apache Console > Start Apache
    • Note: Do NOT select "Restart Apache".
  • Now, Apache will pop up in a new window.
  • Simply minimize it.
    • Do NOT close it!
  • Now, open up c:\apache\htdocs\phpmyadmin\config.inc.php.
    • Find: $cfgServers[1]['password'] = '';
    • Between the '' tags, enter "password" WITHOUT the quotes
    • Save & Close
  • Now, your "webpage" is available at http://localhost!
Ok, nowthat we've installed and configured everything, we can start with the actuall vBulletin install!

Installing your vBulletin
  • Look at your task menu, and right click the traffic light icon.
  • Click "Show me"
  • Now, go to the databases tab.
  • Right click on the "Test" database
  • Click "Create Database".
  • In the window which just opened, enter the exact name which you gave to your online database. (If you're installing a new vBulletin forum on your local PC, you may call it anything you want. Do remember what you call it though).
  • Click "Create the Database" once you've entered a name.
  • Click "OK" on the error box which just poped up.
  • Now, press cancel, and it should bring you back to the databases tab.
  • Now, you have 2 options.
    • Follow these steps if you want to install a NEW vBULLETIN, if not, simply scroll down.
      • Download a new vBulletin copy from the members area.
      • Extract it to: c:\apache\htdocs\forum
      • Open up c:\apache\htdocs\forum\includes\config.php.

        • Set NO dbusername and NO dbuserpassword!
        • Set the database name to the name of the database you created a couple of steps above.
        • Now install vBulletin, and follow vBulletin's steps.
    • Follow these steps if you want to install your online vBulletin Board on your PC.

      • Click it.
      • Browse to your vbulletin.sql file, and select it
      • Now, click the "Go" button. ONLY CLICK THIS ONCE
      • Get yourself a cup of coffee, because this might take a while.
      • When its done, it will most likely say "No tables found". Just ignore that.

Hey dude... You are a loser man.... Try to do something on your own man....

Atleast acknowledge the source dude.... The original poster of the stuff you post must have gone through a lot of trouble to compile them... That's not for you guys to post as your own dude.... Be a man and have a life buddy...


Here ya go, the exact same article by Deaths from http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/archi...p/t-79539.html

I know there is a guide like this out already, and it's created by TECK.
However, his guide is outdated, and the download links are no longer valid.

So, I though I'd tell you how I did it

Please do NOT distribute this guide outside of vBulletin.org! If you wish to put it on your site, contact me by PM!Here are a couple of simple steps on how to run your vB on your PC: (HEY demo guy... DID YOU PM THE ORIGINAL POSTER)

Installing Apache, PHP, MySQL, phpMyAdmin, etc...

Download the newest version of PHPTriad (http://sourceforge.net/project/showf...ckage_id=9390).
This is a very easy to use all-in-one pack.
Run the .exe, and let the installer do the job for you.

If, and it probably will, it asks you for a password, enter root as password, and password as password.
Goto your start menu > PHPtriad > Apache Console > Stop Apache
Now go to start menu > PHPtriad > Apache Console > Start Apache
Note: Do NOT select "Restart Apache".
Now, Apache will pop up in a new window.
Simply minimize it.
Do NOT close it!
Now, open up c:\apache\htdocs\phpmyadmin\config.inc.php.
Find: $cfgServers[1]['password'] = '';
Between the '' tags, enter "password" WITHOUT the quotes
Save & Close

Now, your "webpage" is available at http://localhost!

You just post other peoples video and say yours, other people articles and say yours man i think you did some IT/tech degree right? So you know referencing system? how to quote and how to avoid plagiarism? I think most SL univs using UK standards and most set by BCS to SL univs so know Harvard referencing system?

This thread and the other thread which says about making web pages load faster both are copy paste from vbulletin mods forum. I am an active and licensed user there.

And about installing pirate or nulled vbulletin i got to say only 1 thing. You will get caught! 99% sure! Its NOT like pirate OS or PC software where you will hardly get caught.
