I like your board quite a lot... It's
the best I've seen so far.

I had a go at installing on My Dev box (Windows for
Dev, Linux for Prod)...

Here is the board on Win2K
http://dragonx.northern.ca/forums/

To level set, these comments are from a "know-it-all"
PHP guy who didn't read the readme... (so, if
they are covered in the readme just ignore me, plz) Smile

1) include_path

I got this when I first started up the forum:

Warning: Failed opening 'GLOBALS.php' for inclusion (include_path='.;/apache/includes') in c:!httpdhtdocsforumsindex.php on line 25

Fatal error: Call to undefined function: fud_use() in c:!httpdhtdocsforumsindex.php on line 27


Had to fix the include_path and away it went. (You might
mention that in the install bout where you ask for the
data directory - btw great work on the install, very nice!)

2) WWW_ROOT

my value for WWW_ROOT in GLOBALS.php got set
to the temp directory... not sure if I just typed
something in the wrong field during the install or
if it's mis-linked.

In any case it showed an inconsistency in how the graphics
are called.

Specifically, the graphics buttons for F.A.Q., Register, Log
In, and Forum Home
, broke because my $WWW_Root is wrong,
but oddly the search graphic loaded ok.

Fixing the WWW_Root value seems to have eliminated this problem
so all the graphics work.

3) Not an Administrator

I am allowed to moderate, see reported messages, and the
Custom Avatar que... I tried with and without cookies...
but I can't get into the admin system as the adminstrator.

I can post as adminstrator though....

It maybe helpful noting that I use admin and not root as my
administrator login.

Not sure what to do here... help!

4) Registration fails -- user error not configuring SMTP

Warning: Failed to Connect in c:!httpdFUDForum_dataincludeemail.inc on line 158

Warning: Cannot add header information - headers already sent by (output started at c:!httpdFUDForum_dataincludeemail.inc:15Cool in c:!httpdFUDForum_dataincludewidgets.inc on line 158


This is a problem with my PHP SMTP configuration under windows,
so if you get anyone installing it on windows asking about
it SMTP Config is the problem.

Well, that's all for now... I need to have a rest and
crack at this again tomorrow... looks like I need to rebuild
my metabase to get my SMTP working (I'm not a windows guy so
that ought to be a hoot)...

Question:

Why are you using windows for a development box? that's just so wrong Wink... Linux is free remember? another copy of it won't cost anything. Don't like Linux? there is FreeBSD!

Okie Wink.. see, we don't have a single windows computer to test this on Smile.... (as a rule we prefer to avoid Microsoft software to keep our sanity Wink. We got access to I.E. via VNC to test layout on). Other then that all development is done on Linux with mozilla as the web browser this stuff is mostly developed for Wink

Hmm.. that could very well be a BUG.. thanks for reporting. We'll check this, and if it's a problem is certainly will be gone by the next release.

This one is possibly because the moderator control panel works only with COOKIES... can't use sessions... And since your development box probably used by you by ip you can't set cookies (you can only set a cookie if you have domain).

We're going to possibly make it work with sessions in the next release (some time around Monday or Tuesday). For now what you should do is your hosts file to hard code a domain name for your IP so that the browser allows you to set cookies

This is a problem with my PHP SMTP configuration under windows,

Err... I'd think this is something with php config since we use php's native MAIL function.... so you'd have to make sure php can mail();

The WWW_ROOT screwup seems to be the fault of install script, I'll need to see tomorrow.

If your WWW_ROOT had tmp in it, I suspect that your COOKIE_PATH variable is screwed up (as it is related to WWW_ROOT), it is anything other then "/forum/" then it is wrong. Just to be sure you may also want to check COOKIE_DOMAIN variable, although I don't suspect there would be a problem with it.

Fixing that variable should resolve your cookie problem and allow you to access the admin control panel. Which like hackie said, requires you to have a valid cookie and cannot work by sessions alone like the rest of the forum.

Thanks for the detailed feedback, it is much appreciated.

P.S. I am curios about 1 thing on Windows, what did you have inside your INCLUDE variable inside GLOBALS.php?

From GLOBALS.php:
$INCLUDE 		= "c:/!httpd/FUDForum_data/include/";
/* ^- include line is right AFAIK */
...
// $WWW_ROOT = "C:/temp/";
$WWW_ROOT = "http://dragonx.northern.ca/forums/";
...
// $COOKIE_PATH = "/temp/";
$COOKIE_PATH = "/forums/";


Once I fixed the Cookie_path I could get into the admin
center... which allowed me to discovered some more pain... Laughing (no worries, it will
be worth it)

Warning: file("GLOBALS.php") - No such file or directory in c:!httpdFUDForum_dataincludeglob.inc on line 30

Warning: Variable passed to reset() is not an array or object in c:!httpdhtdocsforumsadmadmglobal.php on line 39

Warning: Variable passed to each() is not an array or object in c:!httpdhtdocsforumsadmadmglobal.php on line 70


Line 37 of admglobal.php is the source of the error:
$cf = get_config('GLOBALS.php');


I'm guessing it should read:
$cf = get_config($GLOBALS['INCLUDE'].'GLOBALS.php');


I'm going to go try that and see what happens...

[Aside]
Also looking at GLOBALS.php (a lot of files have it)
I noticed that line 20 and 21 do this:
?>
<?php


I'm always wary of this kinda of thing since I started using
sessions (right after I got my first header related warnings), personally I would delete those lines.

Yup that worked.

But a new bug surfaced Exclamation
[[ BTW, I should mention these are now errors from when you want
to "set" (save) the configuration. ]]


Warning: fopen("/tmp/1701637662", "w") - No such file or directory in c:!httpdhtdocsforumsadmadmglobal.php on line 56

Warning: Supplied argument is not a valid File-Handle resource in c:!httpdhtdocsforumsadmadmglobal.php on line 58
...


This one occurs because of line 55 of admglobal.php:
		$fn = '/tmp/'.$randval;

(Laughing I think that that will work on any system besides windows, since even Mac runs BSD...)

I'm going to try replacing it with
		$fn = $GLOBALS['TMP'].$randval;

to see if that'll fly.

Not really, because there is a GLOBALS.php symlink in the admin directory, which when opened should open the main GLOBALS.php file inside your INCLUDE directory.

Since your solution works, I am guessing the symlink is not being resolved in Windows. I'll fix this in the upcomming release.

Already fixed in the development release, the next upgrade script will fix this problem.

Is this a valid path, the ! before the httpd is a little freaky....

Could you change your tmp path to say c:!httpdFUDForum_datatmp

No worries, "c:/!httpd/FUDForum_data/tmp/" is valid.

I think I need to do a bit more poking around in admglobal.php code to figure out how it works. But that's an after lunch activity me thinks.

Heh, while debuging I found another small bug, which has now been fixed. The nazi removal of \ Razz

My original question, which got badly parsed cause of this bug is:

I am *guessing* that your $TMP is set to c:/!httpd/FUDForum_data/tmp/

if you change it to:

c:\!httpd\FUDForum_data\tmp\

It *might* fix the problem.

Oh I think I understand how your setup works *am I slow or what*

To get FUDforum to work you've added the path of your include directory to php's include_path? So, there actually no symlinks inside the forum/ & and forum/adm/ directories. Which explains the reason why you needed to pass the
$GLOBALS['INCLUDE'].'GLOBALS.php'
to get_config.

I am guessing correctly so far?

Correct.

Don't feel bad, I'm figuring out how you built it on Linux
at the same time... Smile Until the last post it hadn't even
occurred to me that you were symlinking stuff.

The symlinks stuff does explain why I had to put the
Data directory into the my inclue_path and why GLOBALS.php
would work openning it up without the preceding path on Linux.
(since fopen won't search the include_path, the symlink thing
is the only way that could have worked).Can you please I like your boar

Can you please try doing the following test:

go in to your forum's main web directory and create a file with the following code:

<?php
include "GLOBALS.php";

$fp = fopen($GLOBALS['TMP'].'randomfile', 'w');
if( !$fp ) {
exit("Cannot write to tmp directory");
}
fclose($fp);

I've figured out what caused this... while I was trying to
make the errors disappear before the temp file path was fixed
I accidently commented out the fopen... When I uncommented
it everything worked, accept for a header error I was getting
cause I didn't take out the extra ?>n<? after the license...

Next thing to try is a clean re-install so I can work through
it again and make a summary of the stuff I changed to get
it working.

Gotcha, this is actually also affecting the code which includes the styles.

I am going to cookup a script to look for all of those and fix them. Never came across before cause of UNIX only development.

The 1.1.9-dev running on this server already fixes many bugs related to windows.

Such as c:\test\blah\vdvfd\ can now be used properly.

The support for the \ slash is now exists in messages, usernames etc...

Thanks for bug report Smile.
