Step-by-Step für Doofies wie mich?

Startbeitrag von Sabine am 18.06.2000 13:11

Hallo!

Irgendwie weiß ich nicht, wo man anfangen soll. Habe alles erstmal auf den Server geladen, vorher mySQL installiert und PHP kann der Server auch.

So, und jetzt? Gibt es denn keine Dokumentation oder Anleitung? Kann natürlich in Englisch sein, das stört mich nicht. Aber ich habe keinen Plan. Die README's sind ja auch ein Witz, da steht nichts hilfreiches drin, oder ich habe die RICHITGE README einfach noch nirgendwo gefunden, keine Ahnung.

Habe mit PHP schon Formmailer erstellt, aber das war's dann auch. HTML kann ich sehr gut, JavaScript auch, also kann ich wohl anhand einer Dokumentation den Schritten durchaus folgen. Dazu bräuchte ich jedoch erst mal eine! :o)

Weiß jemand, wo es eine zum Download gibt?

Vielen Dank schon jetzt für Eure Hilfe!!!

Gruss

Sabine

Gibt es doch ...

im Phorum-Ordner unter docs liegt eine nette Readme.txt und da steht:

************************
*** 1. Installation ***
************************

1. Read security.txt.

2. Run the sql script for your DBMS. You can find the *.sql files in the db
dir. For example, in mysql you would run:

> mysql -uuser -ppassword dbname < mysql.sql

Postgres users can start the sql monitor (pgsql) and type "\i postgres.sql"

3. Edit common.php.

a) Change $inf_path to the dir where you will put forums.php. See
security.txt for more on why you should move it.

b) Change $include_path to the dir where you will put the included
files. There is no real risk in leaving these where they are.
If you are uncomfortable about people possibly reading code on
your server you may want to move them. Simply changing the dir
name to something unique would do.

c) Change $admindir to the dir where you will put the admin files. See
security.txt for more on why you should move it and how to protect it.

e) Set the name ($admin_page) of the main admin script (index.php by default).

f) Configure Phorum to interface with your DBMS. Change the line:

require './db/{yourdbms}.php';

example: require './db/mysql.php';

Look in the db directory for the name of the file you need to use.

NOTE FOR POSTGRESQL USERS: If you are using PostgreSQL 6.5 or newer use
the postgresql65.php file. Others use the postgresql.php file.

4. Give write permissions to the webserver on the admin/forums dir.

> cd admin
> chmod 707 forums

This is only secure if you are on a dedicated server. If you are on a
shared server, see security.txt for more detail on securing your files.

5. Give write permissions to the webserver on the configuration files.

> cd [inf_path]
> chmod 707 forums.php
> chmod 706 forums.bak.php

This is only secure if you are on a dedicated server. If you are on a
shared server, see security.txt for more detail on securing your files.

6. Move the files onto a web server. Be sure you move forums.php and
forums.php.bak to the location you designated in common.php for
$inf_path. By default these files are in the include dir.

NOTE: If this is a first time install you will need to rename the following:
forums.php-dist => forums.php
forums.bak.php-dist => forums.bak.php
header.php-dist => header.php
footer.php-dist => footer.php

For upgrades, see changes.txt to see if any changes have been made to these
files. If not, use the ones you have. If there have, you may want to
determine if the changes are neccassary ones. In most cases, changes to
forums.php can be included by upgrading admin files and selecting "Rebuild
INF file".

7. Secure forums.php and forums.php.bak according to your setup as layed out
in security.txt.

8. Goto the admin from a web browser. This is admin/index.php by default.

9. Select 'Phorum Setup' and then 'Database Settings' from the menu. Enter the
database information you are asked for and hit update. The admin will still
report that there is no database connection. This should go away on the
next screen.

10. Select 'File/Path Settings'. If you plan on changing any of the file names
or extensions of the files do it now. Also, the forum url should be filled
in for you. Do not change it unless the URL you are currently accessing the
admin from is different from the publicly accessed Phorum installation. Hit
update.

11. Now select 'Global Settings'. Once there you must fill in the default
email and select a language file. Hit update.

12. Now select 'Main'. Then, select 'Change Password'. Fill in your new
password and hit Update.

Phorum is now ready to be used.
