I recently had to transfer a working forum to an in home server. I was send the database and the forum and data folders. I got everything transfered and the database imported into mysql. The database did have some errors that I went in and manually repaired. I was able to load the page locally after updating my GLOBALS.php. I navigated to the adm folder loged in and rebuilt the theme. I am not able to access any forum topic and none of the grafx files show up. Here is what I edited in GLOBALS.php
OLD
$INCLUDE 		= "E:\\website\\FR\\home\\mathel\\frforum\\data\\include\\";
	$WWW_ROOT 		= "http://frforum.forsakenrealm.org";
	$WWW_ROOT_DISK		= "E:\\website\\FR\\home\\mathel\\frforum\\forum\\";
	$DATA_DIR		= "E:\\website\\FR\\home\\mathel\\frforum\\data\\";
	$ERROR_PATH 		= "E:\\\\website\\\\FR\\\\home\\\\mathel\\\\frforum\\\\data\\\\errors\\\\";
	$MSG_STORE_DIR		= "E:\\\\website\\\\FR\\\\home\\\\mathel\\\\frforum\\\\data\\\\messages\\\\";
	$TMP			= "E:\\\\website\\\\FR\\\\home\\\\mathel\\\\frforum\\\\data\\\\tmp\\\\";
	$FILE_STORE		= "E:\\\\website\\\\FR\\\\home\\\\mathel\\\\frforum\\\\data\\\\files\\\\";
	$FORUM_SETTINGS_PATH 	= "E:\\\\website\\\\FR\\\\home\\\\mathel\\\\frforum\\\\data\\\\cache\\\\";


NEW
$INCLUDE 		= "C:\\Apache2\\htdocs\\frforum\\data\\include\\";
	$WWW_ROOT 		= "localhost";
	$WWW_ROOT_DISK		= "C:\\Apache2\\htdocs\\frforum\\forum\\";
	$DATA_DIR		= "C:\\Apache2\\htdocs\\frforum\\data\\";
	$ERROR_PATH 		= "C:\\\\Apache2\\\\htdocs\\\\frforum\\\\data\\\\errors\\\\";
	$MSG_STORE_DIR		= "C:\\\\Apache2\\\\htdocs\\\\frforum\\\\data\\\\messages\\\\";
	$TMP			= "C:\\\\Apache2\\\\htdocs\\\\frforum\\\\data\\\\tmp\\\\";
	$FILE_STORE		= "C:\\\\Apache2\\\\htdocs\\\\frforum\\\\data\\\\files\\\\";
	$FORUM_SETTINGS_PATH 	= "C:\\\\Apache2\\\\htdocs\\\\frforum\\\\data\\\\cache\\\\";


The old backup did not have the fake GLOBALS.php in all the folders so I just placed an updated copy in each folder to try and get my data back. What else do I need to do. I am stumped. it looks as if the theme is not loading. Could this be because I am missing the fake GLOBALS.php files?
Thanks
UPDATE: I tried using the fake GLOBALS.php and the page wont load at all.
<?php include_once "C:/Apache2/htdocs/frforum/forum/include/GLOBALS.php"; ?>

$WWW_ROOT = "localhost";

Is wrong, the WWW_ROOT needs to be a URL, for example http://localhost/

I set the $WWW_ROOT = "http://localhost/"; and again rebuilt the theme. Now when I click on anything it sends me to my main
index.php (PHPNUKE) I guess it is better than a page not found but still not able to access any posts.


Here is my directory structure
Root...with phpnuke installed
frforum...folder where fudforum is installed
...data
...forum

Hi Nastun. Funny thing, I am Garrik, the one who made your guilds website hehe.

Oh well, first of all, your WWW adress seems a little crazy Sir.
(http://frguild.com/frforum/forum/index.php)

Why not make the URL either http://forum.frguild.com or frguild.com/index.php

And, why not use the forsakenrealm.org domain? I can get you in touch with Knut who has been paying for that domain for the last years (As far as I know) =).

The "real" globals.php (The other two should be SYMLINKS) is located in C:\\Apache2\\htdocs\\frforum\\data\\include\\

Your $WWW_ROOT in has to be: http://frguild.com/frforum/forum/

(With your current setup)

To create a symlink in linux you do: ln -s /original/file /new/link (But it seems that you are running your setup on a windows server? In windows, you just create a shortcut to obtain the same results, I think? (http://shell-shocked.org/article.php?id=284#winlinks)

This is Nastun...HMM for some reason I cannot access the login or logout pages so the only way I could access forum is to create new user. I just figured out how to make a subdomain so I can fix the messy links. All of this stuff is very new to me. I was given about 10 days to learn setup configure and get this temporary server running. I have well over 150 hours in getting this stuff working. The forums are up now and the guild can finally access them. We were without a website for 2 weeks and the lotto system still is broken. Fudor had to shut the server down on the 14th so I had to get this going asap. Honestly it is very frustrating to try and learn this all so fast. It has been a nightmare from the start but I am getting things working slowly. The biggest hurdle was not having access to use the old domain name and dealing with corrupted mysql databases. Everyfile and post has some refrence to the forsakenrealm.org domain Sad

Anyways

Thank you all for the help on the forums. I dont want to get off topic on your forums with all the EQ stuff. I had to edit my hosts file so I can access the domain from the server insted of using localhost. The GLOBALS.php files are all full files the site just wont load with the fake ones. Im sure thats some kind of security issue but its working for now. The guild appreciates it.

I'm off to go learn PHP to fix the lotto system...wish me luck

Is there any reason why I cannot access the login page? It is really annoying to have to make a new e-mail and register every time I want to reply. When I click the login on ie6 or ie7 it just loads a blank page. I have tried from 3 different PC's. Other than that yes I would appreciate any help I can get. I am trying to get the site running like the origional but the postnuke main page only loads the hedder...."SLAMS HEAD ON DESK" I have the subdomains setup with my DNS so those should work once I point them to the proper directories. I cannot get any help on the postnuke forums cause the e-mail activation wont send me an e-mail. SO you can understand my avalanche of headache.
Here are my contact infos
AIM/e-mail - eqnastun/eqnastun(at)aol(dot)com
Yahoo - crazifunguy
MSN - crazifunguy(at)aol(dot)com
Appreciate it. I found some old screen shots im sure you would like to see.

YAY the login link was fixed. OK forum is working. I am having an issue with the upgrade script.

Notice: Undefined offset: 1 in C:\Apache2\htdocs\frforum\forum\upgrade.php on line 976
Failed to parse GLOBALS.php at "" correctly

Is this cause I am using full versions of GLOBALS.php insted of the ghosted ones? How do I fix this?

You can replace the ghosted files with

<?php require "/path/to/real/GLOBALS.php"; ?>

Then the upgrade script should work.

You have quad \'s in some areas of your globals file, could that be the problem?

Ok here is a new problem. I transfered the forum from my development server to the live one.
I am running IIS 6 on the live server. I have to use an older version of PHP and apache 2 does not fully support php 4.1

Again I am having a problem with GLOBALS.PHP
When I use a full GLOBALS.php the forum works fine

When I use the dummy file with
<?php require "c:\\Inetpub\\wwwroot\\frforum\\data\\include\\GLOBALS.php";?>
I get the errors

Warning: Cannot add header information - headers already sent by (output started at c:\inetpub\wwwroot\frforum\forum\adm\GLOBALS.php:2) in C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\frforum\data\include\theme\default\cookies.inc on line 145

Warning: Cannot add header information - headers already sent by (output started at c:\inetpub\wwwroot\frforum\forum\adm\GLOBALS.php:2) in C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\frforum\data\include\adm.inc on line 31

How do I fix this one?

One more thing. The forum shows up great on localhost but over the web the theme is all messed up? What is that from?

You probably need to change references from localhost to web address inside the GLOBALS.php file and rebuild the theme.

You need to change your path to use \\ or / in the GLOBALS.php file.

I dont know what I did lastnight but I was having a problem with atachments so I ran the consistency checker and now no matter what I do I cant post in certin forums. I reloaded the origional SQL and site dump and I still get the darn error. I cant upgrade the forums version until the rest of the site is compatible with php 4.4.6. I have to use 4.1.1 right now.

I get this error
Warning: Unknown error in C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\frforum\forum\theme\default\post.php on line 574

Warning: Cannot add header information - headers already sent by (output started at C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\frforum\forum\theme\default\post.php:574) in C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\frforum\forum\theme\default\post.php on line 3697

The page will post but this is a huge problem for my users and the admins as multiple posts are made each time they press the refresh button. Some pages I can post but I cannot add atachments.

I dont know what to do. If someone wants to log in to the server and fix it please let me know. I just cant seem to fix the problems.

Well after hours and hours and hours of looking at this I figured out 1 of the problems. Since I created my fake GLOBALS.php files in notepad It added an invisible line #2 This caused all the hedder problems on the main page. I can now log in and view my pages fine.

The only problem left is. When I try to post in the forum called The Guild Lobby I get this error.

Well I deleted the forum that I could not post in and that fixed the posting problem. I just made a new one and transfered the posts back. I still cannot upload any files to any forum. I get this error
