Re: Installation procedure

When it says to upload all the files, does that mean what's in the root folder goes into the root of the domain where the forum is going? Yes, "root" = put it in the root folder of your domain. What is in the contrib folder? It has possible modifications to your robots.txt and .htaccess f...

That's odd, I see it defined in common.php as part of phpBB V3. Did you perhaps delete it? <?php /** * * @package phpBB3 * @version $Id: common.php,v 1.214 2007/11/18 15:37:17 naderman Exp $ * @copyright (c) 2005 phpBB Group * @license http://opensource.org/licenses/gpl-license.php GNU Publi...

1. Yes. 2. Yes. The premod doesn't use the database for its configuration. The config is stored in phpbb_seo/cache/phpbb_cache.php. Bottom line is you can switch back and forth using the same database by twidding the config table in the database. BACKGROUND: That's how I do my testing with "liv...

I looked in root folder,but robot.txt is in contrib folder!is this correct? I think you may have misunderstood. robots.txt is a file on your site's web root directory; search engine spiders use it to determine what locations should not be traversed.

Doing a backup/restore makes sense. For future reference, you can switch between install locations for a given database by modifying the script_path variable in phpBB's config table (using phpMyAdmin). That's how phpBB determines what is the "root" of the installation. If you want to switc...

Open phpbb_seo_class.php. Find:

Code: Select all
      // Stop files
      $this->seo_stop_files = array('posting', 'faq', 'ucp', 'swatch', 'mcp');


Replace with:

Code: Select all
      // Stop files
      $this->seo_stop_files = array('posting', 'faq', 'ucp', 'swatch', 'mcp', 'index');

I'm not familiar with that MOD, but here's a quick hack I wrote once for displaying the list of public recent topics. The same code for setting up the URLs below are probably very close the one in your mod. <html> <body> <?php // recent topics "lite" - modify configuration variable below $...

Should be fine as long as you properly redirect. The Zero Dupe MOD will handle it for you. Remember to triple check the headers are correct: http://web-sniffer.net/ When you enter an "old" URL, confirm it gets 301 redirected. I advise testing it locally before making the switch on your liv...

I don't see this problem, maybe it's in a mod you installed? Also see What was changed in phpBB3 to prevent Firefox double views?
