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.

Isaac,
if you mean "xxxxxx.xxxx "then I put it in
- web root
- web root/forums and also in /xxxxxx
all with same result ....but the file could not be found in the path: forum/includes/config.inc.php
I tried to look into ubbt_test.php but could not find where to change it. what am I missing?
Posted By: Ruben Re: UBB.threads System Requirements Test - 01/12/2019 7:38 PM
edit line 15 change it from forum to forums.(plural)
Your site is:
http://www.britbike.com/forums/ubbthreads.php
Not
http://www.britbike.com/forum/ubbthreads.php

and place the script in the root as gizmo suggested

I am not sure I understand what you men by that
Posted By: Morgan Re: UBB.threads System Requirements Test - 01/12/2019 9:40 PM
the paths to config
Posted By: Gizmo Re: UBB.threads System Requirements Test - 01/12/2019 9:54 PM
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.

It keeps looking for forum/includes but I have forums/includes which line shall I change?
Posted By: Gizmo Re: UBB.threads System Requirements Test - 01/21/2019 9:54 PM
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.

I changed the path to forums and it worked , then changed parse to "1" and got all info but I don't want to post it here, not sure how to read it. I'm interested to know how to do with my other topic about cloud fare

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.
Posted By: Morgan Re: UBB.threads System Requirements Test - 01/21/2019 10:17 PM
OK thank you Gizmo now I get support thing, never mind me mentioning the cf, thanks for your service smile

The UBB.threads System Requirements Test [ubbwiki.com] script has been updated, the 20190628 [ubbwiki.com] release has the following changes (Release Announcement [virtualnightclub.net]):
- Added: Database Statistics now display when including your UBB.threads configuration (Server Version, Database Size, Max Allowed Connections, Max Allowed Packet, Index Usage, Query Cache Size)
- Added: Introduced a human readable parsing option for items requiring a comma
- Added: New v7.7.2 configuration variables (Identicons, Social Fields, HTTPs Images, News Images, IP & Location URLs, UTF8 Conversion)
- Added: SMTP values are now in the suppressed items array
- Added: There is now an option to display the page output as a text only listing which suppresses all page styling.
- Fix: Maximum Upload Size Allowed has been updated to use min() to detect the smaller value.
- Fix: Reported Path now suppresses its value when $conf["mask"] is enabled
- Updated: "build_check" Function, and Code/Styling Updates & Cleanup

TLDR; Database Statistics are now available, along with new configuration strings for the configuration parser. There are a couple of bug fixes, and some code was cleaned up.

The UBB.threads System Requirements Test script has been updated, the 20190727 release has the following changes:
- Added: Added a filesize display, which will show filesizes as they're expected (as bytes/megabytes/gigabytes; see $conf["filesize"]).
- Added: Added a human readable display, which will commify any large numbers (see $conf["human"]).
- Added: We now check for the PHP function "exif_read_data" which can read your device orientation for photo uploads.
- Added: We now check for the PHP Handler "suphp" and provide a warning if your $_SERVER["DOCUMENT_ROOT"] has chmods greater than 755.
- Added: We now check for the UBB.threads configuration variable "IPGEO_LOOKUP" (Enable Reverse Geo-IP Lookups).
- Added: Introduced a basic troubleshooter which will detect issues with your UBB.threads configuration
- Added: Added a troubleshooter for chmods greater than 755 while operating under suphp for both your forum and forum admin folders.
- Added: Added a troubleshooter which will alert you to missing ImageMagick paths when it is detected on the system but values are not in your UBB.threads configuration.
- Added: Added a troubleshooter which will alert you when both GD and ImageMagick appear to be missing from your system.
- Change: The "max_execution_time" notice now recommends a value no higher than 60.
- Change: The Admin Log Path, SQL Log Path, and Session Path values are set to be scrubbed by default; if you would like to share those paths and private data you may set the $conf["private"] variable to 1 (default 0).
- Change: Various code cleanup and CSS formatting changes.

TLDR; A new troubleshooting tool, new compatibility checks for UBB.threads requirements and suphp detection, human readable filesizes and numbers, and protected private paths for logging directories.
