Vanilla 2.6 is here! It includes security fixes and requires PHP 7.0. We have therefore ALSO released Vanilla 2.5.2 with security patches if you are still on PHP 5.6 to give you additional time to upgrade.

I don't know what I'm doing wrong

I am new to all ths but am wanting to learn so a message would be awesome but if ppl just help me in general I so appreciate it
So Im using Hostgator as my server
Im following online tutorials
I unzipped and uploaded Vanilla into my files and followed the videos exactly
I set up my database
When I go to my website domain it tells me I have a database error
SO then what I tried to do was I started using wordpress
That fixed it so I actually have something when I go to my domain name
I downloaded the vanilla plugin
but I dont know how to set up an account to open the forum

What am I doing wrong

at this point I am willing to pay some money for someone to do it for me (but also walk me through it)

Any advice
