PhpBB install instructions (Flash tutorial )

Instructions to modules integration:

  • upload them to forum directory they are included in Dolphin package) respectfully;
  • run installation;
  • delete “index.html” files from forum directory;
  • upload necessary intermediary module. Intermediary modules are files that were developed for each integrated script to make it compatible with Dolphin.

Intermediary modules are stored in the Dolphin script in the “/modules” directory (phpbb.aemod - module for phpBB)

You should download necessary file to your local PC (if you do not have a local back-up copy) and upload it via Admin Panel -> manage modules panel (this way it will be uploaded to your database). Do not forget to click the "Refresh" button after you load the file.

  • configure database if phpBB was installed to separate database from Dolphin . To do this, go to Admin Panel -> manage modules and make the following changes:
  • press “Configure” for phpBB
  • make appropriate changes:

$mods['phpbb']['ModuleDirectory'] = 'forum/'; - forum directory

$mods['phpbb']['Database']['TablePrefix'] = 'phpbb_';

$mods['phpbb']['Database']['Host'] = $db['host']; - host for your database

$mods['phpbb']['Database']['Name'] = $db['db']; name of the database

$mods['phpbb']['Database']['Username'] = $db['user']; name of the database user

$mods['phpbb']['Database']['Password'] = $db['passwd']; password of the database user

  • press ‘Update’;

Enjoy your forum.

We recommend that you disable registration in forum – this way in order to use your forum, visitors will have to register at your dating site to use them. To do this for phpBB
