WTF! Totally Lost!
« on: February 17, 2008, 04:02:58 PM »
This is all done on a test sub-domain called - http://jack.portalworlds.com

1. I installed SMF1.1.3.

2. Then I uploaded all the TP Files and folders.

3. Went to http://jack.portalworlds.com/tp_install.php

4. It didn't work, whole bunch of errors.

5. Came here, looked around, found info on a manual install file.

6. Downloaded the manual install file.

7. Uploaded the manual install file.

8. Went to http://jack.portalworlds.com/manual_tp_install.php

9. It worked. YAY! The file did what it was suppose to.

10. Went to my phpmyadmin, the new tables are there.

11. Went back to http://jack.portalworlds.com nothing has changed, nothing looks different, I cant find any reference to any TP stuff anywhere.

12. Went back to http://jack.portalworlds.com/tp_install.php thinking I still had to run that, it got all error on me again.

13. Came back here, cause I am totally and utterly freaking lost and confused.

14. Wrote this thread.

15. Begged for help.

Did you make the edits to all the files that need to edited for tp to work.  If now look in the docs section and find the manual install instructions and the file code edits.

What I am saying is.   Go to the docs section of this site.   Find the manual install instructions.   In those instructions you will see a part that tells you what files to edit to make the tp mod work.  :)

ok thanks man. I got done what needed to be done, now just to figure out if this is what I really need for what I want to do.

I was talking to my buddy about this idea I had, and he was like ohhhh you need TP, and I was like WTF, and he was like trust me, that is what you need. Well time to see if he was right.

Cool.  I am sure you will like tp.  The possibilities it gives your site is endless.

So long as it gives me the possibilities I require, I will be happy, but so far I aint seeing how that is going to be possible, but we will see.

DrkSideInc:
Unless I have missed a different post by you, it seems to me that you might of started off in a manner that insured errors.
I could be wrong, but did you install TP via the SMF package manager. It has always installed complete, with zero errors for me.

I am assuming that calling the tpinstall.php file via the browser window is not equal to callling the entire zip via the package manager.

hope this helps

Please excuse my lazines. I have the flu and have been too use to TP just installing as a package.

I got the database connection issue and followed the manual install, then went gah gah when I came to the edit the files section.

Surely a pre-edited version of 1.1.4 could be posted here with all the changes already done? I'm sure Tick or Ich would have the know how and confidence to do it.

To much to ask?

Oh if it's any relevance, my hoster states:

"Do you restrict any features in MySQL 4.1/5.0?"

"Yes. In order to protect our shared servers we restrict the following features:

MySQL 5.0:

    * Triggers will not be supported in the MySql 5.0 offering because the SUPER privilege is needed to run all triggers. A bug report was submitted to MySql AB for a privilege tables fix in later versions of MySql 5.1.
    * Stored functions are not allowed, however, deterministic stored procedures/routines will be supported. For more information see Are stored procedures allowed in MySQL

MySQL 4.1 and 5.0:

    * The Berkeley storage engine is no longer supported by us or MySQL AB. If you have tables which use the Berkeley storage engine you may continue to use that table, however we will not support it. We advise that all customers convert their Berkeley storage engine tables into InnoDB.

Unfortunately we cannot offer any SMF files pre-made for download as that would be breaking the copyright of SMF. That is why we have instructions, most custom themes are already converted by Crip.
