Installing vBulletin 5 Beta 10 on GoDaddy server or any other SERVER

Installing vBulletin 5 Beta 10 on GoDaddy server or any other SERVER :



After making the required changes to

config.php.bkp in top folder (The changes are available around the internet just search for it:) Check this link for information 


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_tmCHZvm8j4 )

and while making changes to

config.php.new in core/includes folder

after giving values in Database Name and Technical Email Address

coming down to MASTER DATABASE SERVER NAME AND PORT

here

$config['MasterServer']['servername'] = DO NOT GIVE ANY OF THESE VALUES 'localhost' or '127.0.0.1';

THIS IS IMPORTANT, After Logging into your Account Manager in GoDaddy Click Launch button which is towards Domain and in Next Screen you will find Three Green Color TABS on Top Left Corner DOMAINS | HOSTING | EMAIL . Click on HOSTING. Here come down to DATABASES and Click on MySQL and ADD a database with a DATABASE NAME this DB Name you have to give in config.php.new file which I mentioned above, you will have to give this value in DATABASE NAME field.

OK, now coming back to server host name :)

After creating the database in MYSQL in GoDaddy Account Manager, Click on the database name and you will get all the details of that database. Click on the INSTALL button towards DSN, this will help you to connect your database to your website, and below that you will find HOSTNAME, Copy this hostname and paste it .....

Here,

$config['MasterServer']['servername'] = 'PASTE IT HERE';

you will find this entry in config.php.new file (Remember DO NOT GIVE THE VALUE 'localhost' or '127.0.0.1')

and then

$config['MasterServer']['port'] = '3306';

REMEMBER TO PUT SINGLE QUOTES TO PORT NUMBER.




******** I BELIEVE SIMILAR to the GoDaddy hostname YOU SHOULD BE HAVING A DBHOSTNAME for whatever hosting provider you choose, you just have to search for those values in MySQL DATABASE details, give those values as hostname and Enjoy :)) ********
