Re: Running phpBB with no DELETE queries

My question is: How insane would it be to attempt this? I've been working this idea over in my head: running phpBB with no delete statements, and with a MySQL user that does not have DELETE privileges. You like to have larger backup files because of additional tables? I think to have a backup is be...

Re: Install on PostreSQL database?

I've found some nice softwares that run in Windows that are designed to convert from MySQL to PostgreSQL, but non of them can connect to my databases. I think it's a combination of the NAT on my router, and the NAT on my DSL modem, because the error messages I get when trying any kind of remote adm...

Re: Install on PostreSQL database?

If anyone knows of any easy conversion method (preferably something written in PHP), and could tell me where to find it, I would much appreciate it. Yes, there is something written in PHP: phpMyAdmin. Go to your database, click the "Export" tab and choose "SQL compatibility mode: POSTGRESQL" (and t...

Re: Install on PostreSQL database?

I am not able to find a PostgreSQL plugin for PHP on the PostgreSQL website. I did find this . Is it what you were refering to? No, it's this, see "Installation": http://www.php.net/manual/en/ref.pgsql.php If shared object module is available, PostgreSQL module may be loaded using extension directi...

Re: Backup Database help in Preperations for phpbb3 test

Fortunately its on my own dedicated server, so i have shell access. You should read the MySQL documentation (to backup the database even if the conversion script doesn't modify the old database is *always* useful), e.g. here: http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/mysqldump.html for something like:...

Re: Is that captcha final?

Can anyone think of a good argument as to why they would want to do this? Because if it's down to just me and my personal needs it's never going to happen. I run a phpBB3 test install on my OpenBSD servers since some early alpha version, and I remember that a few month ago the new GD captcha didn't...

Re: TLS SMTP Support?

I think the original poster meant via the email settings in the ACP though ;) Yes, via email settings. Though phpBB is "just" PHP code, and whatever settings are used within the phpBB ACP, it passes them to the PHP installation on the server. If PHP (and other code which PHP may use for email) supp...

Re: index.php

what is it I change or do so when people go to www.mysite.com they will see my forum? You can create a file called index.php in your root directory which contains a redirection, e.g. like this: <?php header("HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently"); header("Location:http://www.mysite.com/phpbb/index.php");...

Re: OpenBSD 3.9, phpBB3 and you

Sorry to post in this quite old thread, but I love OpenBSD and I've additional tips. Hopefully they are also useful for others. :-) One thing I had to do (both MySQL and Apache installed 'out of the box') was to modify my /etc/my.cnf file: open-files-limit = 8192 That would be a lot of open tables, ...

The .ZIP file should not contain any extraneous files (such as Thumbs.db files or images not directly related to the style, such as advertisements). And that's really easy on a Mac. From man zip: -x files Explicitly exclude the specified files, as in: zip -r foo foo -x \*.o which will include the c...

Yes, or the author of a phpBB style package could exclude "invisible" files when packing the archive. :-)
