Re: Unable to install on Synology from source page not found

I think the problem is more with the later firmware versions of Syno's DSM than phpBB. I have problems too installing CMSs (ravennuke, dragonfire, phpNuke, etc.) with the ftp drag & drop to web folder method. It can't find the intall file & will just output error 404. I have no problems when install...

Re: Unable to install on Synology from source page not found

I have the same issue before with the DSM 6+ firmware. The only way to install phpBB was to change the site url from (mywebsite.com/phpbb/install) to (myIPaddress:port/phpbb/install). Even post install, I still get page not found on few pages (ex: phpBB FAQ page). I resolved the issue by deleting We...

Re: Base url and Nginx

Put an index.html file (containing URL redirect script pointing to whatever page you want it to go) where the html folder is located. Anyone checking your site (http://example.com) gets redirected automatically to the page you like to put as your main page. http://insider.zone/tools/client-side-url-...

Re: Can't Login with New Installation

As for a dedicated IP... it's not. It is quite common to have shared hosting like that. I only pay for dedicated IPs when SSL requirements force me to. In fact my hosting company doesn't offer dedicated IPs unless you can make a solid argument why it up is required. I also don't understand why this...

It is not a dedicated IP, so I would not expect you could reach that site directly only using the IP.
It has to be a dedicated IP otherwised there's no way you can direct someone trying to query the domain server running your website if the server IP is constantly changing.

Re: Can't Login with New Installation

Again, it's missing a CNAME record. Try to create a CNAME record for your site url with & without the www prefix. Also no matter how miniscule the changes you made, clearing the cache & deleting all board cookies won't hurt. Try to login with & without the www prefix. Also try to login with the give...

Re: Can't Login with New Installation

Try adding a CNAME record to it. Can't reach your site with the given IP link (only url). Did you purged your phpBB cache?

Re: phpBB Update on Synology fails due to MariaDB database error

Also try to reset Syno's network setting by pressing the reset button on back of the NAS for about 4 sec until you hear a beep. Do it once only or you'll end up restoring your NAS to its factory setting. After uninstalling both PhpMyAdmin & MariaDB remove any remaining MariaDB files left. You can us...

Re: phpBB Update on Synology fails due to MariaDB database error

Makes sure on Syno Web Station you type localhost as hostname instead of your site url on Virtual Host. Uninstall & reinstall both phpMyAdmin & MariaDB10. Had the same problem before with MariaDB5 but it's mainly because of the site url instead of localhost I've used as my hostname.

Re: Posting a video with raw url link like .mp4

Just install Wimpy Rave . I think the legacy version is now free to use without any license purchase or demo limits. You can embed the code for the video player on a page using for ex. phpBB Pages extension. Don't forget to check parse HTML on page created or the embed won't work. Also, unless you w...

I am sorry but some of us are developers in general (Not especially phpBB), trying to quickly setup an extension without having to read the docs to find out which directory structure to use.
I concur.

Re: a "more automatic" automatic update?

In my personal opinion this is all very well but my concern with such methods is you’ll have more and more users (admin who are supposed to know what’s going on don’t forget) who are only button clickers and have no knowledge of how things work. When something goes peculiar for whatever reason you’...

Re: How do I post .mp4 file?

This is not a raw URL link as you think it would be because of the (.mp4) at the end. You can't post videos with raw URL link because of file permissions for security reasons.

Re: [phpBB 3.2.1] Switching my server from PHP 5.6 to PHP 7 results in a 503 error

The web folder route is not really that good (I used it before). Pages seem slow in loading compared with that of Syno phpBB web application. But you're probably still be OK as only use your NAS web server for local purposes as a test server. You should no worry that much of PHP 5.6 support. You sho...

Re: [phpBB 3.2.1] Switching my server from PHP 5.6 to PHP 7 results in a 503 error

Seems like you're not using Syno's phpBB app & instead put your site files inside the web folder. It's easier to just use the Syno's phpBB app for seemless software update. My Syno DS214play NAS has Linux DS ver. 3.2.40. Yours still ver. 3.10.102. By default phpBB should install using php5.6 configu...
