Response to Also, BIG question,.. or 2 or 3,..... :)
>> does the rss-injector.php file config need it's own DB name - or does this add to the board database name. I'm assuming it does use the same DB and writes into it?
negative. you use the same db name as your smf database (default is "smf", but you may have changed it during installation).
question: does godaddy give you an interface to your database? if so, is it phpMySql?
>> Also the config asks for the FULL path to the board in the includes. If I'm not mistaken - there is a longer directory path than the simple www.domain.com/smf , and I gotta find the long path name right?
correct. gotta use long path names. i'm assuming that you have installed smf to the root directory, in which case the full path would be "/smf". if you put it into some subdirectories, then fill it out.
beware: in rss-injector.php, above the db details, you'll see two "include_once" commands. you'll have to change those to reflect your database installation.
>> Also - it says to then: Run the rss-injector.sql script against your SMF database in MySQL.
True. if godaddy has an interface to your database, you should be able to go in there and find a place to enter sql commands (or upload a text file). if there is a place to enter sql commands, like a big text box, you could open the .sql file in notepad and copy/paste it.
All this does is sets up your database. You still have a little more configuration to do.
Let me know when you make it this far without errors. It still won't work at this point, as you have the RSS feeds to configure.
