I edited conf_global.php and then tried to run the installer and I get this error after entering the DB Details form:
even though this is in my conf_global.php:
$INFO['sql_host'] = 'localhost:/media/sdg1/home/logicgate/private/mysql/socket';
It looks like it's not respecting my socket parameter. There's no errors in my apache error.log. The database exists and the username and password specified in conf_global.php and the installer form are correct
I am trying to install IP.Board 3.3.4 on a new server. I am only allowed to connect to the MySQL server through the socket /media/sdg1/home/logicgate/private/mysql/socket. When I specify this in the installer under mysql host, i get an error. I tried with and without a colon in front. How can I use a MySQL socket as my host? Putting localhost: in front doesn't work either
How do I keep the shoutbox from parsing media URLs into embedded videos? For example, when someone posts a youtube video, it gets embedded right into the shoutbox. I just want it to show the hyperlink.
Having that problem too, centering will disappear in most instances (when editing, submitting, pasting) as well as colouring and generally bad formatting. plain text mode also shows at HTML instead of BBCode.
Ideally, would I need this modified php configuration to apply to every IP.Board directory that has a PHP script in it? The warnings go away when the php.ini file is in ~/public_html/forums/admin/install, but I don't know that that's sufficient to make the boards function properly. I'm in the process of contacting my host, but holiday :(
