I will look into my vB files and let u know

But this is what u need to have:

$config[‘Database’][‘dbname’] = ‘fonzie2’;
$config[‘Database’][‘tableprefix’] = ‘vb’;
$config[‘MasterServer’][‘servername’] = ‘pbontario.com’;
$config[‘MasterServer’][‘username’] = ‘fonzie2’;
$config[‘MasterServer’][‘password’] = ‘Insert password’;

Thats it I guess
