    Bought a forum and transferred it to my server. Uploaded the database and done everything I've done before. I've transferred several xenforo's before with no issue. This one has an issue. It throws out the following error:

    I don't know what SSL is much less how to get rid of this error and fix it. Any help??

    You're trying to connect with https://

    Try http:// instead

    All variations of the url result in the same error.

    I've tried uninstalling and installing a fresh copy to see if it helps.

    Try to access the DB of the new sql and search for the https string. My guess is that the url of the old forum was using https and set it in their ACP.

    The guy who sold it said it was in the .htaccess so I edited out his rewrite code. Now the SSL error goes away to be replaced with...

    Getting quite stressed. Not going how the others have in the past and I don't understand it.

    Hard to help without access to data. Try to back up the htaccess and wipe it and then add back one by one line.

    The .htaccess wouldn't be related to the database error. View the pages source to get the actual mysql error.

    I suspect you need to edit the config.php to point to your database.
