License Question

What exactly constitutes distribution of modified phpbb3 code? If I were to host phpbb3 forum inside of a company intranet and I made some mods to display a person's name (vs. their employee number) from LDAP and other very small cosmetic type mods. The app is never allowed access outside of our int...

Re: Connect to new Database

well....This is confusing. On a whim I decided to make a DSN on the webserver to connect to the new database server. Edited the config.php to use mssql-odbc $dbms = 'mssql_odbc'; $dbhost = 'PHPBB'; //dsn name $dbport = ''; $dbname = 'PHPBB'; $dbuser = 'username'; $dbpasswd = '*******'; The DSN works...

Re: Connect to new Database

Yes the port is blank...
I tried putting in the port manually and that didn't change anything either...

I am getting closer to just re-installing

Re: Connect to new Database

hmmm.... Those errors don't make a lot of sense either as they just point back to the connection parameters... If I change the server name to a bogus server name I get THE SAME error messages.. it's almost as if it can't see the new server. (But I can ping it fine and connect to the DB with a test s...

Re: Connect to new Database

Re: Connect to new Database

still testing... I am not getting any useful error message. The old server and database is still online, so I can change the $dbhost back and it works fine. I put together a quick page on another website that connects to the new database and queries using the same connection parameters as is in the ...

Re: Connect to new Database

Thanks Christian...
But I am only moving the MSSQL database, not the website.
Trying to avoid re-installing the web app.

In the config.php file I only edited the $dbhost (database server name)

Connect to new Database

I have to move my database (only) to a new server. I am currently using MSSQL and they are replacing that server. I have tried these steps: 1. Backup database (using SQL backup) 2. Restored it to new server. 3. Gave rights to the same user account as on the old server. 4. Edited config.php to use th...

Re: FAQ Manager

I added and it works fine for me...
I have someone who is an Administrator and he can't see the tab.

What do I need to do to get him to be able to see the .MODs tab?

Thanks!
