Value within includes/functions.php

Hey guys wonder if someone could help....

I am trying to integrate another system with vBulletin which takes the vBulletin login information, I have seen a number of sites do this, however on the configuration part where its asking for the database information I have some problems....

Firstly its asks for a database prefix I have none so should I leave this blank?

And finally it asks for Value within the file /includes/functions.php Forum

The only thing I can find that makes sense with this is define('COOKIE_SALT', 'vSdGLyEENDkkrqoKQ8murCortkDSc');

This is an old file so the data is not relevant but is this the information it requires or is there another value? Because I'm completely stuck.

Your question is a bit confusing to me.
You want to implement vBulletin's login system somewhere else so vBulletin logins will work?

Yes basically and it asks for a value within the functions.php file.

As well as the various database information which I have already input into the file.

Think its best if I just put what I see here.

This has been integrated to many sites so I know it works.

As per the question above, I do not know the value I should place into the box for includes/functions.php and my database has no prefix so should I leave it blank?

If you don't use a prefix then I guess you can leave it empty indeed. The table prefix is stored in the includes/config.php file for future reference.

Not sure what they mean by "value within the /includes/functions.php file", there are a bunch of different values in there. My guess would be the COOKIE_SALT as well.

I checked in phpmyadmin and the value is 100% the cookie salt it says vbulletin_fct_salt so my assumption is thats the cookie salt value.

However within phpmyadmin is says vbulletin_cookie_prefix for the prefix of the database tables, everything appears correct my end however I'm not making a connection.
