[RFC]Remove Install file

Post by MichaelC » Thu Sep 30, 2010 3:57 pm

When you have finished the phpBB first installation next to login a button saying 'Delete install file' which would then remove /install/.

The installer should then check if it can delete the folder. If that's not possible, it can ask the user for FTP/SFTP credentials or to do it manually.

This saves time for less experienced users who would take a while going into FTP and removing the /install/ file.

Based on the discussion topic for 3.1 here

Could probably expanded to chmoding the cache/ etc. directories as well.

Appears to be a great idea. Especially considering that phpBB is moving towards making installations easier and more user-friendly.

or we could just leave the files there and put a install.lock file in the install folder and that will lock the installer.

I like that, might make more sense to put it in cache though, since that is already writeable.

I like that idea except some mods and phpbb sub-projects put the install at /install/ as it also disables the board.

Well just have phpbb delete it install files when it finish installing, and the same for mods as well. But I don't know how you would go about doing that for mods

When 3.1 is released your /install/ directory won't exist as AutoMOD will have UMIL built into its wizard install meaning there will be no /install/ to run.
