Thank you,
Thanks, Sorry for the late reply as I've just been able to get back to this today. I tried reinstating vBSSO and logging in using my personal admin account and everything worked just fine. So I'm at a loss as to what the heck had happened before. I'm guessing that possibly it had to do with the client changing his email in the middle of everything which I did not find out right away.

The only issue I seem to have now if when I clicked on the link to download the log file I got a nice pretty white page inside my vBulletin frame in the admin panel. Not sure what happened with that at all. Possibly it has to do with the PHP zip installation?

Thanks guys for being patient with me to get this thing resolved.

EDIT: I had it set up to send the log to my email account. Maybe its supposed to do that and not give you an actual file to download? If so, there were errors where do I need to send that please?

Since the developer has not responded in several weeks I have manually enabled the external data flag. If the developer would like to remove the flag, please provide an explanation for the line I provided in the post above.

Thank You.

So this could essentially link 2 vbulletin forums together so that a member purchasing a paid subscription would have access to both forums correct?

Yes, vBSSO allows to link 2 vBulletin forums together and after that the members will have acess to both.

Do we keep separate Databases for Wordpress and vBulletin installs to make this plugin work or there are some tweaks required in Database also? Using MySQL on cpanel.
