Release Build 20190101

• BASE64 Favicon - The UBBWiki favicon has been added as a BASE64 encoded image.
• New Color Scheme - New, Faster, and Revamped!
• Update Check - An option to check UBBWiki for the latest version, to ensure you're using the most up to date version of code checks (we assume that file_get_contents exists and allow_url_fopen is enabled; which are base functions and are required to use the Stop Forum Spam functionality in UBB.threads.
• Additional Checks - mb_convert_case (required for UTF8 support, which is required for future PHP7 support), allow_url_fopen (which is required for Stop Forum Spam to function).

Release Build 20170202

• Added a "linkback" function and linked all of the error/warning messages to their anchor on this Wiki page.

• Added additional checks for file_get_contents and fsockopen (used by the Stop Forum Spam feature).

Happy Scouting Giz,

When you arrive back and find a minute, I did put the script in same folder as ubbthreads are in
and to my surprise i got this result

Quote
System Requirements Met
Your system meets all of the PHP requirements for UBB.threads:
Minimum Version: v7.5.7
Maximum Version: v7.7.x

UBB.threads Configuration
You have indicated that you would like to test your UBB.threads configuration, but the file could not be found in the path: forum/includes/config.inc.php


Additional Information
Compatible UBB.threads Versions:
Minimum: v7.5.7
Maximum: v7.7.x


The config file is in forums/includes why would the test look in wrong folder? What shall I do?
Thanks

@morgan

edit the config settings inside the script file to match your correct path.

or move the script one level above your /forums directory. it's looking for your confirmation file to be in the /forums subdirectory of where you placed it.

You only need to include the path to the forums in order to parse your configuration, if you're not looking for that functionally, just remove the path.

Placing the file in your forum folder will also populate the config parser, hence why it's recommended to install on your web root.

I may add a tick to disable parsing of the configuration, while still allowing the path to be set to allow just for a database and file version check.

Just refreshed my Member Area access for this software. Missed last 2 versions as I intended to wait for PHP7 support since UBB was the last script on my site that wasn't compatible with it. Will update from 7.5.9 as soon as 7.7.0 is released and tell the host to move my site to PHP7.1. I'll happily be taking that extra speed.

Thanks Isaac, Gizmo, and other for making it happen. thumbsup

The UBB.threads System Requirements Test script has been updated, the 20190121 release has the following changes:
- Added an option to not parse the config file when the path is populated; this will allow a version check without a full configuration file parse.
- Added a MySQL Version Check when the path is populated, this will display your MySQL Server version in the Additional Information area.
- Retooled the min/max version version check to display a combined warning when the system doesn't support UBB.threads.
- Added a tick to switch the list style, current options are now 0/Bullets, 1/Fancy Indicators (FA Coffee Mugs), 2/Numerated, 3/Roman Numerals
- Lowered the check value of "max_execution_time" to be at least 30 seconds (from 60 seconds).


TLDR; You can now have a version check without a full configuration parsing, check your MySQL version, added a version check for the v7.7.0 release which includes PHP7.0-PHP7.3 support, more list formats, and a lower max_execution_time check.

If $config["path"] is not blank, it'll always check that directory for your config.inc.php; if you don't want it to look there at all then set it to blank "" and it will no longer auto check that folder.

If you want it to check that folder and NOT parse your configuration, you'd set the folder and set $config["parse"] to 0.

Well, this is the thread for the UBB.threads System Requirements Test Script, the script that informs you of potential issues with your hosting configuration; CloudFlare is not a part of that.

The items you're parsing are the settings you've made in your UBB.threads configuration over the years, it's there as a support avenue when something isn't working right.
