phpbb 2.08 MOD installation problem

Recommended Posts

I installed a clear OSC ms2 then tried to install the phpBB 2.08 MOD.

I met the following problems:

1. If I install the admin access MOD first and then install the phpBB MOD, when I tried to connect to http://localhost/catalog/admin/bb_default.php. Access denied. I was redirected to the admin login page. After login , I still couldn't access the phpBB admin page.

2. If I install phpBB MOD on a clear OSC without admin access control, it works. I can configure phpBB with bb_default.php page. When I login on the OSC main page and link to the forum, it shows that a forum user is created using the current user's english name. But when I tried to open some forums or add some new posts, it shows anonymous login :blink: :blink:

What's more, It seems that it didn't create a real phpBB admin accout.

3. Another thing makes me quite confusing is that in the phpBB MOD installation file, I was told that " language directory names should be the same as OSC ". I don't know how to do it. Now in my OSC, language directories are called "english", while in the phpBB, it's "lang_english".

Please help me . Thanks a lot

I don't know where you heard that from and I don't know if it's true, but I just installed the PHPbb Mod and it works fine now. I think you're thinking too much into the install. Follow the directions CAREFULLY!!! The only real problem that I had was not being able to create an account after I installed PHPbb. I found the answer to that somewhere in this forum. It told me to // to comment out a certain line in the account_edit.php, acount_create.php, and login.php. If I find it again I will let you konw.

I followed the install steps carefully and checked each file. I re-installed it serveral times but met the same problem.

One thing confuses me : the OSC language directory name is "english" while in phpBB it is called "lang_english". Accroding to the install guide,they must be same. Could this be the reason of problem? :rolleyes: I don't know how to modify it. Pls. kindly help

They must be the same as in English for English, and Spanish for Spanish. As in do not have a English OSC and a Spanish PHPbb install. It never said it had to be the same nameing convention.

But in the installation guide , it says:

NOTE: Language files folders name must be the same used by oscommerce.

ex: should be includes\modules\phpbb2\language\lang_portugues (NOT lang_portuguese) :'( :'( :'(

why don.t you try it both ways. just change the name of the file. but i don't think this is really have anything with the login. it probably has something to do with create_account.php. make backup as always and you will be fine no matter what.
