How to install vbulletin on dedicated server or vps, where the operating system is linux / ubuntu.
in most cases you can search online but there is nothing specific about how it can be done. I tried to bring something to simplify your research :)

Step-by-step actions you will have illustrated with photos:

First open terminal and install Apache2

Code:
sudo apt-get install apache2
Check your web server in your browser by typing http://localhost or 127.0.0.1:80 if it works correctly

in the next step we will install php5
Code:
sudo apt-get install php5 libapache2-mod-php5

also we need client/server MySQL database :

Code:
sudo apt-get install mysql-client

and install mysql server

Code:
sudo apt-get install mysql-server

let’s try to change the old password to a new database password. you can set a password that you would like to enter:

we will now start the web server:
1) start 2) stop 3) restart

database management.
In order to login in to a database you should type this string mysql -u your-domain-name-in-linux -p
if you'd like to test your database you should type this one: show databases;

Code:
Then create a database called db

CREATE DATABASE db;

Create a database user called dbuser with new password

CREATE USER 'dbuser'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'new_password_here';

Then grant the user full access to the database.

GRANT ALL ON db.* TO 'dbuser'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'user_password_here' WITH GRANT OPTION;

Finally, save your changes and exit.
then we will go to the files and change the config.php.new to config.php and edit it:
which is located in /var/www/html/ your directory /upload/includes

enter the url just as it is written in the address bar in a web browser and try to start the installation process

You just have to change the title and email address to whatever you want

skip it

Set up your admin account

This means you should remove the install folder from the /forum folder

1588148003751.png

cd /var/www/html/forum and then find the directory 'install' and remove it by typing rm -rf

1588148020404.png

Refresh your web browser and try to login to admin panel

Congratulations on your achievement!
