View Full Version : changing BBS need advice
October 21st, 2005, 08:25 AM
Hi all, i'm changing from invision v1.3 to vB3.5. i'm currently running photopost 4.6.7 hooked into invision. I'm going to renew my subs and get the latest version of photopost. I'm going to uprade my invisionboard to vB, but can anyone suggest the best way to "unhook" my current photopost then reintegrate it with my new vB and possibly upgrade at the same time, basically what would be the best way to go about this?

After upgrading photopost and installing vb you need to do this
1. edit both config files with the correct server paths and urls etc and vb license number. The information needed is pretty self explanatory
2. View the mysql database and change settings 41 and 83 to the proper integration type (vb3) and table prefix
3. View the mysql database and change settings 171-172-173 to the proper cookie settings for vb. Note cookie prefix will usually be bb
4. You should have a functioning vb integration now you might need to turn on the header footer integration and forum style switch. You will also need to in admin place the proper url to the forums.

Thats fine yes if your installing vb 3.5 yes
after import of ib to vb you may need to run this if userid's changed on import
