    Hi,

    I am trying to go to a regular site which I go to. It shows the google ranking, but I get a white page that says: "includes/config.php does not exist. Cannot continue"

    I've tried last couple hours and get the same message. Does anyone know if this is a virus thing or just that particular server is down. I can get to other sites fine.

    The site is www.christianforums.com

    Thanks for your help! Taperino

    Actually, that is an odd error condition, in that it is not normally seen...

    The file "/includes/config.php" is present in every vBulletin forum, and is in fact essential since it defines some key parameters, such as "where the database is located" and other important configuration settings. No vBulletin forum can run without that file in place.

    I can't imagine why it went missing. Perhaps they are working on an upgrade (several vBulletin upgrades were relased in these past weeks) and haven't finished it yet. :doubt:
