Nice Work Ig and Omaha

June 11 2007, 5:02 AM 

Question: Will you be banning IP addy's before they are even used on your board?

L

A certain drunk on certain Fuchsia Fag Forum saw fit to ban my home office IP addy before it was even USED on his board. Glad to see I have him tilting at windmills.

Hey Dan..just remember, when in doubt, ban..*L*

This is going to be fun..

Kinda, yes.

Although, you don't even have to install the mod through SMF. It's actually done through the database (if i remember right). Fairly easy. Still have the link to the mod? If not, let me know.

,... it may be easy for you - but I've only ever created a SQL databas - I've never manipualted one.

I will however try and follow the instructions, hopefully I won't kill my datatbase.

Also, BIG question,.. or 2 or 3,..... :)

June 12 2007, 11:46 AM 

,.. 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?

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?

I think before with other websites, I've used program uploaded to the server to find that long path name. Maybe Go Daddy has a place in my account management to find it?

Or can I just actually use the simple path?????

Also - it says to then: Run the rss-injector.sql script against your SMF database in MySQL.

I'm assuming the script is run through the frontend that Go Daddy has to access the SQL database and should have a command to do so there????

Or, does this just simply mean run the Rss-injector.php with all the files in the directory once uploaded to the site????

I know, I may be overthinking this one, but I just like making sure so I don't kill anything.

I'm sure I'll have some more little questions just to be on the safe side.

Thanks for your input.!!!!

>> 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.

for example:

require_once('/smf/SSI.php');
require_once('/smf/Sources/Subs-Post.php');

>> 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.

I guess I should explain the long path name I mean.

June 12 2007, 4:41 PM 

When I installed stuff on my old websites, the simple path would be www.domain.com/smf

HOWEVER, the real path was long, something like www.domain.com/www/smf/

and actually more convoluted an long. Some 'wwwroot' like additions in there. And maube the actual host's server name and not my domain.

Am I to take it I can use the simple www.domain.com/smf for the path to my forum?

You're on the right track

June 12 2007, 10:11 PM 

do the path. if you have a directory called www.domain.com, then it definitely would be /www.domain.com/smf/blahblah

but if you don't have a directory named after your domain, then don't use it.

did you get into your db?

if it allows you to upload a .sql file, then that is definitely it.

question: which db are you subscribed to? mysql or sqlserver?
