Setting phpbb_config mysql database table

Post by davye »

Before I login to board for first time
I identify the database in config.php
Then I set various values in the mysql phpbb_config database table
  • cookie_name of the ACP cookie settings
  • board_email of the ACP email settings
  • site_home_url of the ACP board settings
  • server_name of the ACP Server settings
  • and etc.
I then login to ACP and check the values
I find that none have the values in the mysql database, mysql phpbb_config table

Now when I use the ACP and change just one of the values then all values match the mysql database, mysql phpbb_config table

So, my question is -
How do I get phpBB to read and use the contents of the mysql database, mysql phpbb_config table the first time I log in?
Or maybe there are other places where these values should be set in the database other than the phpbb_config table?

any particular reason why you are doing this? you set all of those things either during install or in the admin panel settings after install.
almost all of the tables in the database are interconnected with other tables. if you do not know exactly what you are doing in the database you can cause major problems at worst or simply make some things not work right at best.

A lot of config values are cached, so you need to clear the cache after changing them directly in the database.
