Hi All...

Kudos for a great looking and acting forum. Like it enough to try it!

Trying to set this thing up on an NT4/IIS4 box and getting some undefined variable errors in install.php when viewed in-browser via http. I press on an enter data anyway, but by the time I get to step 3 I'm getting a bunch of "cannot create file" errors, which I'm guessing is tied to the undefined variable problem. All of these undefined var's are path related, and I've no idea how to fix it for an NT box (could do it in any Linux in a snap, but such is not available at this client). I've set the server's doc root in php.ini to, well, the server's wwwroot folder (same folder IIS itself considers "root"), and am using full paths, not relative.

Anybody have any thoughts? Specific undefined vars in install.php are: "section", "DOCUMENT_ROOT", "WWW_ROOT" and "FORUM_WWW_ROOT".

Question? Which release did you try? 1.1.1? 1.1.1 is not easy to install on windows, if you are interested in a windows' install you should try the latest development release dev-20020215 also available on the download page.

What errors?
copy and paste them errors into the forum
("some undefined variable errors" is like when your girlfriend says "do you remember that girl?", which one?)

What version of PHP?
What version of FUD?
What version of MySQL?

read the rest of the original post - all of the undefined variables are listed, near the end.

PHP ver = 4.1.0
FUD ver = both 1.1.1 and latest devel versions
MySQL ver = 3.23.39

entire installation of php/mysql is right about a month old, latest stable installers downloaded at that time.


recieving exact same undefined variable errors using both FUD 1.1.1 and latest devel release.


Exact error messages are:

You should upgrade to PHP 4.1.1 or you will get MySQL errors messages about "can't close connection" later on...

But anyway these errors make me think you may not have register_globals = on; in your PHP.ini.

The default config for PHP 4.1+ has it set to off by default, but the install script for FUD requires it be set on.

Could you tell me what your error reporting level is set to?

I believe the errors you are seeing are the result of your error reporting being set a little too high Smile

If those are undefined the install will crap out... I know I had a similar issue before... see the first line of Win2K - Fixes to install 1.1.1

I've just added error_reporting(E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE); to our forum so that should not be a problem in the future.

However, I don't think this is the problem here.

I've just pulled up an IIS 4.0 phpinfo(). And the DOCUMENT_ROOT, which apache exports to php does not seem to be there...
I am looking at other alternatives right now...

P.S. jkrische2 would it be possible to see the output of phpinfo() on your system?

I've added a little hack to the install script to handle the missing DOCUMENT_ROOT variable. Please try the attached install.php a shot.

Sure on the php info, prottoss...

http://www.johnvalley.com/phpinfo.php

...hope nobody gets anything out of that for a nerfarious purpose...

Planning on upgrading to php 4.1.1, just haven't had time to do it yet - the life of the common developer. <Sigh/> Smile

in re the Q about error reporting level - don't know; PHP newbie, haven't gotten that far yet - will look at PHP docs to find out how to answer this Q a little better. I can say it's a default install of PHP 4.1.0 on NT4.

At home now, away from client. Will try the hacked snapshot at first available opp.


Thanks all! You've been a much friendlier & more constructive forum than my experiences at other places...

When you try to re-install the forum, be sure the use the install script I've attached in the previous message.

P.S. i've looked at the phpinfo, and indeed IIS does not seem to export the DOCUMENT_ROOT variable, hopefuly the hack I've added in the attached install script will solve this.

Will do!

Already downloaded it and am remoting it up to the client's server as I type this. Should have at least some results here in about 15 minutes.

Hey Gang...

Thanks again! snapshot appears to be working. Am up to step 3 without a single error, lotsa new folders & files just created... ok, well, I had some bad NTFS perms, but got that solved. Getting mysql prepped now, expect a normal install at this point. Will post final outcome here and, when this FUD forum becomes publically available, the address of my copy of FUD in the list in the appropriate section of this site!

Give me a moment, I'll prep a fix. I beleive we modified the fud_forum table structure and this query doesn't correspond anymore.

The problem is the result of a "bad" def_forum.sql file, which is located in your forum_install/install_data/sql/ directory. Replace that file with the one attached to this message and resume the install.

This should fix the query failure.

Ok, progress! This is going nicely.

New batch of errors now. Sorry to be such a pain in the rear, but at least we're getting bugs worked out, eh? Steps 4 & 5 completed, directories reset to my usual restrictive NTFS perms, install.php moved to a non-web-accessible folder & renamed just to be safe. BUT...

on opening index.php for the first time, I get this:


Warning: Undefined index: REQUEST_URI in D:\Inetpub\wwwroot\forums_HOTC_com\include\GLOBALS.php on line 23

Warning: Undefined variable: db_str in D:\Inetpub\wwwroot\forums_HOTC_com\include\cookies.inc on line 82

Then the normal forum list table & such appear. Stupid newbie php.ini problem or another bug to kill?

Could you give me a url to the forum please, I want to see those errors for myself maybe gather more info.

This is our 1st IIS install, so I suspect it is likely the fault of the forum rather then your setup.

Well, after looking at your phpinfo once more I found the reason for this problem. You'll have to excuse me when I say that MS are fscking morons!!

IIS does not seem to have a REQUEST_URI variable or ANY other variable that contains the parameters passed via get.

I will once again need to add a hack, which will re-create the REQUEST_URI variable for people who lack it, the forum relies on that variable in a number of places...

Once, I make it, i'll post it in this thread.

Hmmmm.... no effect at all. same errors as previous.


Hey, I told the client this would install right and run kick-ass on Lin (tried it on my RH7 server here at home with no probs)... wouldn't have it, they're slaves to the dark side. Sad

Unfortunately I don't have this thing up on a public IP or I'd gladly share it with ya. Can-do on Monday, though, if you like.

On the bright side, when we get a fully-working version running, we can zip it up and distribute it on your download page... Smile

The next step actually will require you to edit 1 line in you GLOBALS.php file found in your include directory for the forum.

Change the line which now says:
if ( strstr($GLOBALS['HTTP_SERVER_VARS']['REQUEST_URI'], 'GLOBALS.php') ) {

To say:
if ( strstr($GLOBALS['HTTP_SERVER_VARS']['SCRIPT_NAME'], 'GLOBALS.php') ) {

prottoss, you're beautiful!

Just did the globals.php change and refreshed. Could add categories & forums at will using admin panel. Will test it further on Monday and report in, though I see no reason at this point that everything shouldn't be working right now, if it's setting & using cookies correctly and accessing mysql correctly, which apparently it is since I can create a new forum & all.

Thanks again!

There appears to be a problem with file attachments.

I've attached tried to attach a file to my message, however due to an error that file was not saved it would seem.

Could you please tell me what do you have inside your FILE_STORE variable of GLOBALS.php?

Looks like there were some bad slashes in there, here is what I have now (& please retry an attachment):


$INCLUDE = "D:\Inetpub\wwwroot\forums_HOTC_com\include\";
$WWW_ROOT = "http://forums.sysop.com/";
$ERROR_PATH = "D:\Inetpub\wwwroot\forums_HOTC_com\errors\";
$MSG_STORE_DIR = "D:\Inetpub\wwwroot\forums_HOTC_com\messages\";
$TMP = "D:\Inetpub\wwwroot\forums_HOTC_com\tmp\";
$FILE_STORE = "D:\Inetpub\wwwroot\forums_HOTC_com\files\";

Feedback appreciated!


It blowed up good....

When you get it going again, you should make an anonymous post forum (anon topic creation and replies allowed) too...

There appears to be a problem with file attachments.

I've attached tried to attach a file to my message, however due to an error that file was not saved it would seem.

Could you please tell me what do you have inside your FILE_STORE variable of GLOBALS.php?

I see the problem...

In windows when using php you MUST enter paths like this:

D:\\mypath\\fdsfa\\fsadfsadf\etc\\

Otherwise the path will not be parsed correctly Smile

Everywhere you have \ in the path you need to change it to \\ otherwise you'll have problems. Because \ is normally an escape character, by using \\ you make it escape itself and thus use \ when it actually needs to use the path.

OK, slashes changed in that whole section of path-related variables, so that is now looks like this:

$INCLUDE = "D:\\Inetpub\\wwwroot\\forums_HOTC_com\\include/";
$WWW_ROOT = "http://forums.sysop.com/";
$ERROR_PATH = "D:\\Inetpub\\wwwroot\\forums_HOTC_com\\errors/";
$MSG_STORE_DIR = "D:\\Inetpub\\wwwroot\\forums_HOTC_com\\messages/";
$TMP = "D:\\Inetpub\\wwwroot\\forums_HOTC_com\\tmp/";
$FILE_STORE = "D:\\Inetpub\\wwwroot\\forums_HOTC_com\\files/";

A more secure idea would be to put $INCLUDE ="D:\Inetpub\forums_data" and all related directories outside the doc root... only the stuff under docs (in the forum_install directory) need sit in a public accessible area (i.e. subdir of wwwroot).

This looks correct, let me try to upload a file.

Hrm... problem is still there, the file is not getting saved. I know this because when I go to edit the message I get the following error:

Warning: stat failed for D:Inetpubwwwrootforums_HOTC_comfiles/4.atch (errno=2 - No such file or directory) in D:\Inetpub\wwwroot\forums_HOTC_com\post.php on line 167


Could you please check if there are any files inside the: D:\\Inetpub\\wwwroot\\forums_HOTC_com\\files/ directory and if there are any could you show me the directory listing please.
