Current feeling is that I'm glad I didn't pay money for the license yet!
My patience is wearing thin.
I've still got to iron out why my domain name is still not "mapped" properly at the host. Until that is done I gues I'm really wasting my time.
Biggest thing is that I am doing way too much guessing and riddle solving in the config.inc.php file.
There should be better instructions!
I'm sure it is all abc123 to those that have administered servers or have backgrounds with perl and php scripting....I do not and just want the software to work.
Something specific that is troubling me:
In the path and url variables, when it asks for a path
Is it dangerous to use "my_user_name" where instinct tells me it ought to be the domain name in the path???????
Hopefully I'm right in assuming that Url to the main installation is like http://www.domain_name.com/ubbthreads
See where my aggravation is coming from?
Also when all this sql database stuff is created; where do they exist? Are they files that I can "see" when I FTP in with my ftp client and download to backup etc??????
hope this is the right board <img border="0" title="" alt="[Confused]" src="images/icons/confused.gif" />
