should come complete with full instructions. Setting up a MySQL database isn't something that we can deal with on a step by step basis here; you'll need to read the vbulletin instructions carefully.

Most discussion forum companies will do the file installation work for you for a small fee, and if you have no previous experience of working on a web server you might want to take this option - it will get you from A to B much faster,and with less hassle.
