I'm getting a few fatal errors here!

http://infernal-arcade.co.cc/blog.php?page=install

Then I get the fatal error of doom...
Fatal error: Not able to open ./cache/data_global.php in /www/hostsnake.com/i/n/f/infernalarcade/htdocs/includes/acm/acm_file.php on line 106
I've purged the cache, and have double checked that the CACHE folder's CHMOD permissions are set to 777.
:shock:

SOS!


---EDIT
Now phpBB3 is down entirely.
That's it, I'm moving hosts.

Hi,

I am completely new to installing forums and php, but the install went very easy, thanks to a great explanation in the xml file...but I have a few questions:

1. at the moment only the 2 administrators have the blog function available, and I can't seem to figure out how to set permissions.
2. Is it possible to give only the moderators of a forum in phpBB3 the blog function?
Example: I make a registered user moderator of a forum and I want him to create blogs regarding that particular forum. I don't want every user to be able to create blogs, but they have to be able to see them!
Is that possible?
3. I also installed Arcade 0.4.2 and in the User Control Panel they seem to have a conflict.
Any idea where I have to look (maybe edit one of the files again...)

The default permission settings should give all registered users permission to post blogs.
The blog permissions are all global permissions.

Yes

What is the problem?

Hi there first off thanks for this great mod.

I have this installed and to the most part everything is working nicely. I posted a blog as well as another user posted a blog however if I click on the blog moderator it states that no blogs are posted. I created categories and I was hoping to move blogs to those specific blogs. Any Idea on why this might be?

Here is a link to my blog.

Thanks

The blog MCP only shows reported and unapproved blogs/replies.

Thanks about the answer regarding global permissions. It all seems to be working great.
The problem in the User Control Panel is that the Blog and phpBB Arcade tabs seem to act as 1.

If I select the Arcade tab I cget the following error:
"General Error
Module not accessible"

If I select the Blog tab, I get the Blog settings, but the menu on the left says phpBB Arcade. If I click there, I get the same error message again.

I installed the Blog after the Arcade.

Create a file with:

Code: Select all

<?php phpinfo(); ?>
in it, upload it to your server, then view it with your web browser.

Sounds like the modules got messed up. I would go to the acp module management and check it out.

You will need to contact your host. If you have a good host they might upgrade it for you, if not you'll probably need to find a new one.

Gr8 MOD Extraction works gr8 on my BB 3.0.0-

Thanks a lot for this even looks gr8 on the forum, just one edit u need to make in the install.xml

prosilver overall_header.html

Code: Select all

Find
Tip: This may be a partial find and not the whole line.

Code: Select All
{U_FAQ}
Add before
Tip: Add these lines on a new blank line before the preceding line(s) to find.

Code: Select All
				<!-- BEGIN blog_links -->
					<li class="{blog_links.CLASS}"><a href="{blog_links.URL}">{blog_links.TEXT}</a></li>
				<!-- END blog_links -->

Instead of adding before U_Faq i added before

Code: Select all

				<li class="icon-faq"><a href="{U_FAQ}" title="{L_FAQ_EXPLAIN}">{L_FAQ}</a></li>
				<!-- IF not S_IS_BOT -->

Hi. I'd really like to get this mod working, it looks great. I installed Beta 2, looks like it installed fine, but when I try to actually submit a form post action, it doesn't work. What should I check, what has gone wrong here?

I can view the posts and navigate around and click on the Reply buttons, but when I do a Submit (or Preview) to make a new post it's as if I just reloaded the page instead of hitting submit. It shows me the same exact form, but blanked out, after it "submits".

Also I can't "submit" to delete a post, again same thing, it just blanks out the form (the one checkbox) and does nothing.

I did get my PHP version upgraded to 5.2.4 and I am using FireFox. I also attempted the same thing in IE just to check. I have the same issue whether or not I turn on the mod_rewrite stuff. I am using the newest PHPBB3 downloaded last week.

Thank you!
