Installing Vanilla Forums on an Existing Wordpress site (domain.com/forum)
Hi all, new to vanilla. Moved from NodeBB.
I am part way through install, but have a few issues/queries.
1) Is there a way to set the Forum to install on a /forum url? I am worried that if i continue using the domain.com/vanilla-2.5.1/index.php? p=/dashboard/setup, this will remove or damage my existing wordpress site.
2) Before I considered the fact that the Vanilla Forum may overwrite my wordpress site, I clicked continue and received this error.
Unable to copy .htaccess.dist to .htaccess. You may need to manually copy this file.
The connection parameters you specified failed to open a connection to the database. The database reported the following error:
SQLSTATE[HY000]  Connection refused
I am completely new to HTaccess and wondering if there's a guide for this?
- I have created Vanilla Database on PHYMYADMIN
- My end goal is to have Vanilla running on my wordpress site under a 'forum' page.
