FluxBB configuration
 
 
Introduction
Much lighter than phpBB ! Smaller, less features (use the plugins), and supposedly more active than PunBB.
 
 
Installation
Deploy FluxBB,
tar xvzf fluxbb-1.2.22.tar.gz
mv fluxbb-1.2.22/upload path/to/vhost
 
Eventually deploy your prefered language pack,
cd lang
wget http: //fluxbb.org/download/lang_packs/1.2/French.zip
unzip French.zip
 
Create a database, user with grants and run the install script,
http: //example.net/install.php
 
 
Update
cp fluxbb-1.2.22/extras/12_to_1222_update.php path/to/vhost
 
 
Unlock
cp fluxbb-1.2.22/extras/turn_off_maintenance_mode.php path/to/vhost
 
 
PTPImages plugin installation
Deploy the plugin,
cd plugins
wget http: //www.ptp-images.com/mod/fluxbb.zip
mkdir ptp
unzip fluxbb.zip -d ptp
cp ptp/en/ptpimages.php ..
#cp ptp/fr/ptpimages.php ..
cd ..
note. yes, it needs to be copied to forum's root dir
edit the plugin,
vi ptpimages.php
change the URL,
define('URL_VERS_CETTE_PAGE','http: //www.example.net/ptpimages.php');
 
Enable the plugin,
cp post.php post.php.dist
vi post.php
search for,
<textarea name="req_message"
add ID to the tag,
<textarea name="req_message" id="req_message"
then search for,
Hide smilies
and look down to the end of the PHP condition, after,
<?php
}
?>
add,
<? /* PTP Images Addon -- BOF */ ?>
<div id="divptpimages"></div>
<script type="text/javascript">var email_user = "<?if (isset($pun_user['email']) && $pun_user['email']!='') echo $pun_user['email'];?>";</script>
<script type="text/javascript" type="text/javascript" src="http: //www.ptp-images.com/js/fluxbb.js"></script>
<? /* PTP Images Addon -- EOF */ ?>
