Premod install/overwrite didn't change a thing

Postby EddieRock » Thu Jun 05, 2008 3:54 am

Platform:
Win2k
ISAP_Rewrite
PHPBB3 3.0.1 No Mods
SubSilver2 Style using AcidTech Theme and Imageset


I backed up my config.php file and overwrote ALL of the files with the files in the root/ folder of phpBB3-Premod_V_3-0-1

Copied my config.php back

Ran the database_update.php file and it made no changes.

Logged into the ACP and there are no changes. I renamed the /install dir and logged into the board with no changes.

I'm missing the boat somewhere.

HELP! What do I do next?

Hi,

Did you update your style and .htaccess to 3.0.1 ?

If you installed the premod over a regular phpBB3 install, you still need to do few things, mentioned on this thread : http://www.phpbb-seo.com/boards/phpbb-s ... t1962.html

Where would I get the styles and .htaccess other than from the download? I was at a standard 3.0.1 installation of phpbb3.

Can you specifically point out what I'm missing? I've read the above thread a few times and I didn't have any mods. I've searched the board for specific instructions without success.

Thanks for your help

This is the interesting part once you've uploaded all files :

SeO wrote:Once this is done, if the phpBB SEO mod rewrite acp was already installed with the mod rewrite, then, it's ready for the premod too, if not, you would have to upload the phpbb_seo_install.php file from the contrib/ dir of the package and run it from the phpbb_seo/ dir (yourdomain.com/phpbb_seo/phpbb_seo_install.php) to install it.
Once this is done, go to ACP and configure the new options, the first one to deal with being the mod rewrite type since the premod offers them all at once, juts make sure you keep the same as before : advanced mixed or simple, otherwise you'll need to personalize your .htaccess to get the redirecting done.

You'll as well need to generate and install a new .htaccess for the new profile groups and search user pages rewriting.

Last thing, for the no duplicate included as well, you'll need to run this SQL query :
Code: Select all
ALTER TABLE `phpbb_topics` ADD INDEX ( `topic_last_post_id` );


with the proper table prefix.

I still advise you to read carefully the premod install file and better to test it locally to find out more about all the features and be able to set it up peacefully online.


You're in the case where you need to install the mod's acp, since it was not installed standalone before.

So, If my forum is installed in this URL format below:

-www.mydomain.com/forum/
-www.mydomain.con/forum/phpbb_seo/

then I need to copy the phpbb_seo_install.php in the dir and run this in a browser as seen below

-http://www.mydomain.com/forum/phpbb_seo/phpbb_seo_install.php

Correct?

Since this is a new forum, do I have to worry about the no duplicate?

Thanks,

EddieRock
