phpBB QuickInstall for phpBB 3.0.x

Latest version: 1.0.10

Download: phpBB3 QuickInstall 1.0.10

What's phpBB Quickinstall?
This script is the phpBB 3.0.x version of the old phpBB 2.0.x quickinstall. The idea is that you can install a phpBB board with a single mouseclick, it will have it's own database, it's own files. What is this useful for, you ask? If you like creating modifications for phpBB, it's best to have a separate install for each mod you are developing. Going through the installation process each time is a pain, so this script will make it easier. Another thing you can do with it is manage these installations, which means you can delete them easily.

What's changed since the phpBB 2.0.x version?
I must say that this script has been totally rewritten for phpBB 3.0.x. I started from null again, but it has many improvements. It uses phpBB3's template system instead of smarty, phpBB3's DBAL instead of my own MySQL-only class that i made for the old version (note that currently only MySQL, MySQLi and MSSQL are supported), and it has a modular structure, which means it's easier for me to add new stuff. I may write some plugins system for it, that's not sure yet though. Another thing that's new is that it uses phpBB3's new admin css, the grey-silverish one.

What's the license?
As it uses phpBB3, it's the GNU General Public License (GPL) version 2.

Thanks!
To Mike TUMS (Advanced Lamer) for the beautiful logo!

Excellent tool. Did not even know it existed for phpBB2!! Would be great in the future when EM is out for phpBB3 to have an option to have the board installed with EM.

Have it installed and 4 boards running already!! So many thanks. Worked flawlessly. :D

Yes, that's what the phpBB2 version had, and i plan on having it for this too. Hopefully the installation of the new easymod is as easy as copying over a few files, then i can just drop it in the sources/mods/ folder :D Else i can still have auto inclusion for a specific filename or something like that... :)

I have just added MSSQL & PostgreSQL to my development box, any chance you might think of adding these to quickinstall?? Would make it just brilliant to be able to handle all the DBMS that phpBB3 supports.

What means this "No database selected?" :P I get that, despite my having edited qi_config.php and putting in the database name on index.php.

PHP 5.2.3 (with PHP built to use MySQLi as the connector)
Apache 2.2.4
MySQL 5
phpBB3 RC5 in the sources directory
Added custom directory in the mods directory

If you need anything else, let me know.

Could you perhaps in modules/qi_create.php add this before:

Code: Select all

		if (!$dbname)
		{
			trigger_error('NO_DB');
		}

Code: Select all

var_dump($dbname);

Very strange... if you could some debugging and find the error, i'd be thankful.

Version 1.0.3 has been released, it's updated for RC5.

I'm currently working on SQLite support for the next version. Then i may also be able to add other flat-file-based dbms.
