I downloaded and did the un-tar with no problem. I tried running the install.php from the shell but with received the following error messages:

./install.php: ?php: No such file or directory
./install.php: /bin: is a directory
./install.php: COPYING: command not found
./install.php: COPYING: command not found
./install.php: COPYING: command not found
./install.php: line 6: syntax error near unexpected token `(C'
./install.php: line 6: `* copyright : (C) 2001,2002 Advanced Internet Designs Inc.'

I then tried the web install. I got to the page where I supply the MySQL information but then when I click next I get a blank screen. I waited a while but nothing ever happened.

On page 2 of the userguide, it suggests checking on mysql status with php. I entered the example code with my root ID and password. When I ran it I received the display "3.23.48-log" which is what I assume I should get.

What do I need to do next to run the install.php script?

I just ran through the web install again and got past that previous problem. I got to a screen that said the setup was complete and if I clicked next I would be taken to the login screen. That did not work - I just got a page cannot be displayed screen.

My suggestion, honestly, fetch down the latest code with CVS (see this thread).

There are SO MANY bug fixes between 1.1.1 and 1.1.9-dev which is what this install is running...

In fact, I'd be inclined to bug protoss for a new dev version on the D/L page. There are two bugs that are known on it still (both cosmetic & to do with Anonymous posting), but it is much more solid and it works pretty well on Windows too Grin

the install.php script is not a shell script. if you try to execute it as such it MOST DEFINATELY will not work. Ideally you would run it from the directory where you intend to install the forum using your browsers.

Of course, any web browseable directory will do. Smile

The broken URL problem is likely the result of mislabeled option in the install.php script, which made you put incorrect data into to WWW_ROOT & correspondingly the COOKIE_PATH was not correctly generated.

To fix this problem, edit the GLOBALS.php file, and modify the 2 options I've mentioned above.

That should fix your problem.

Thanks for your comments The userguide claims that the install file can be executed. That needs to be updated.

You said "The broken URL problem is likely the result of mislabeled option in the install.php script, which made you put incorrect data into to WWW_ROOT & correspondingly the COOKIE_PATH was not correctly generated.

Thanks again.

okie, well you open the GLOBALS.php file, go to the line which says something like $WWW_ROOT = "some path";
you change "some path" to be the full path to the web dir where you forum is:
ex: http://www.myforum.com/forum/ (make sure there is a trailing /)

Then you go to line which says $COOKIE_PATH = "something";

And you change "something" to the dir where your forum is installed.
ex: if you have http://www.myforum.com/forum/ inside your WWW_ROOT your make COOKIE_PATH equal to "/forum/"

Ok, that helped a lot -- Thanks!!!

Now that everything seems to be working, I would like to make a few changes in how it looks. The main thing is that I would like to get rid of the smiley shortcuts. They are nice but not appropriate for the intended users of my forum. If I delete them all in the control panel will that make that section of the post form go away?

I did not seem to see a section in the control panel for the post icons. Can I delete some of them or add new ones?

Thanks again for your help.

There is a control panel called "Smiley Manager" it will allow you to add/edit/remove smilies.

Simply remove all the smilies and voila Smile

Ok, now the smiley icons are gone - but it still says "Smiley Shortcuts:" at the left. How about the post icons. I would like to get rid of some of them - but not all of them.

Thanks again for your prompt help.

The smiley shortcuts appearing despite there being no smileys is a bug. A temporary fix is to set "Allow Smileys" option in the forum control panel to "NO" for every forum.

It will hide the "Smiley Shortcuts:" section.

I'll make sure that in the next release the smiley section will no appear on the post page if there are no smileys.

As for message icons, you simply delete the ones you don't like from the hard drive. They will be automatically removed.
