Hey there,

I am getting stuck at step 3. Here are my config.inc.php settings (with pw changed)

$host="localhost";
$database="touch-bu_forum ";
$mysql_user="touch-bu";
$mysql_password="password";
$host_bb="localhost";
$pp_db_prefix = "pp_";
$database_bb="touch-bu_forum";
$user_bb="touch-bu";
$password_bb="password";

Now I am trying to integrate with VB 3.5.4. I figured perhaps my $mysql_user did not have CREATE perms, so I did the following:

#mysql -u touch-bu -p
mysql>use touch-bu_forum
mysql>CREATE TABLE t (c CHAR(20) CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_bin);
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.27 sec)

Clearly the perms are fine.

Any suggestions?

Restarted the mysql database and it seemed to work. Very odd.

Anyway, now when I try to access /ppost/index.php I get

header-inc.php errors. $vbpath doesnt appear to be valid.
