Group Rank Hack Install problem!

Wondering why that MOD you have won't install correctly? Let's take a look
Forum rules
DO NOT give out any FTP passwords to anyone! There is no reason to do so! If you need help badly enough, create a temporary FTP account that is restricted to only the files that you need help with and give the information for that. Giving out FTP information can be very dangerous!

Most of my favorite MODs are admin MODs that beef up the ACP. Most can be found in the phpBB MOD Database in the Admin Tools section...

Ok, as you have already noticed and attempted to correct, this MOD script is a mess, which is typical of MOD scripts from phpBBHacks.com. It looks like you have the general idea of how to correct them to be EM Friendly though...

The following will all have to be done manually before you attempt to install the MOD using EM:

Code: Select all

# 
#-----[ DIY ]------------------------------------------ 
# 
install_cms.php

#
#-----[ RENAME ]-------------------------------------------------------
#
index.php -> forum.php

#
#-----[ COPY ]-------------------------------------------------------
# 
copy forum2.php to forum2.php

#
#-----[ RENAME ]-------------------------------------------------------
#
forum2.php -> cms.php
So basically you rename your index.php file to forum.php. Next make a copy of the forum.php file and name it cms.php. You won't have to create a new folder in your phpBB folder root named cms_blocks. When EM copies the cms_blocks to your server, it will create the folder for you. You can remove that entire block of code above from your MOD script since EM can't do anything with it...

Code: Select all

Error Detail

Critical Error

Function Trace: open_files[5]->modio_open[1]

Could not open [forum.php] for reading.
MOD script line #237 :: FAQ :: Report
Since you should have already renamed the index.php file to forum.php, this error will go away...
hmm, is there anyway to seperate the phpBB cms and the phpBB?
i want the phpBB forum to be on the forums/ where it is.
the phpBB cms at the root of the webserver.

No, this MOD was written to be embedded inside of your phpBB folder. There is no easy way to separate them from each other...

Yes, I will try to make an EM Friendly version of this MOD, but it will have to wait until later when I return home. I'm just about ready to leave for several hours...

I am leery of creating an EM Friendly version of this MOD since the MOD overwrites existing phpBB files with included files. If you fail to read the instructions provided from the MOD and fail to create backups of files that could be overwritten, then you could easily be screwed, especially if you decide to remove the MOD after installing it. This can be a potentially dangerous MOD to install if you aren't fully aware of what you have to do before installint it...

I want you to make a backup of your index.php file, not your database. Then you would create another copy of the index.php fiel and rename it forum.php. Then you would create one more copy of the index.php and name it cms.php. So when you are done, you would have 4 identical copies of the index.php file, one as a backup, one renamed to forum.php, one renamed to cms.php, and the last would be the index.php file that will be overwritten by the MOD...
