This seems to be a similar issue to that already experienced but I'm battling
I have done several fresh uploads. I have the classifieds in their own dbase, and the second set of settings set to my VB3 dbase to access user profiles. This "seems" to be ok.
I set the cookies to bb (same as my VB install from memory).
I have both forum and classifieds installed into the root directory of my site.
I drop all the tables in the classifieds dbase and then run the install. When it configures the dbase I get a LOT of "table already exists" errors.
The install continues to run fine from then on untill I get to the login screen. At this stage I cant login. When I enter my forum login I get a blank page. If I choose another option it sends me into my forum software and I get a "user doesnt exist" type error which prompts me to join the forum.
I believe I have a cookie issue, but I'm a little confused that it puts up a blank screen instead of just bouncing me straight to the new member prompt.
Any thoughts? I think this is simple, and probably another cookie issue, but after spending several hours in this forum (and re-installing about 8 times) I'm stumped
OK....possibly I'm getting fixated on cookies
When I try to log in for the first time I press submit end go to a blank screen. Possibly its trying to enter the classifieds but the software isnt working? I've checked the dbase settings and I "think" they are fine. Also I cant find an issue with the cookie settings in my VB Cpanel, in PHP Myadmin, or in the config file.
SO now I'm really confused, which generally means its a really simple problem that I'm trying to make hard
well If your classifieds does not display I would more think of a wrong path you entered trying to set up the vb3 enhanced integration. Check your path settings in the config-int.php file and then also remember after you get classifieds showing then you can track down your cookie issue. Your vb license number must be entered in the config-inc.php file correctly also for logins to work since its written into the password variable.
I killed the dbase and recreated. Reinstalled with the VB3 features set to off. I still get the list of errors (table already exists) during install of the dbase, and the same end result.....a blank screen?
If I go to http://www.hemi6pack.com/classifieds/ the page is working. If I try to login it redirects me to a VB page that tells me I already have a login and then redirects me off into the forum. So there is interaction but its not recognising the cookie....and the wheel goes around
I have deleted the lot, emptied the database and started from scratch. Too many tweaks to the script and I've lost focus. The root cause is that when running step 3 I get a LONG list of database errors (looks to be every table added to the database). Following the errors list I get the install text and button to proceed to step 4, so I had previously continued the install.
step 3: MySQL error reported: [CREATE TABLE pp_admlog (id int(10) NOT NULL auto_increment,adminuser varchar(50) NOT NULL default '',description varchar(255) NOT NULL default '',datestamp int(20) NOT NULL default '0',ip varchar(35) NOT NULL default '',PRIMARY KEY (id)) TYPE=MyISAM]
Result: Table 'pp_admlog' already exists
You can then run the upgrade.php and import zipcodes that way
This got me through step3, but with errors. If I remove the code I get a blank screen, but when I go into PHP myadmin the tables have been added to the dbase.
I have the settings set up to run the classifieds in one database, and the second set of fields set to my VB3 forum database. I had thought this would add classifieds info to its own bdase whilst referencing the VB3 dbase for user info etc.
So I'm open to suggestions. The issue starts with the addition of the database tables. I added the zip file mod to overcome it. Curiously I cant add the zip file with the upgrade script as it also errors out (possibly because I've already ftp'd the file? DO I even need the zip file code? or is there something else I should add here to get me through step three? Not sure but there is certainly an issue when adding the tables.

OK.....now that I've manually added the config-inc file I've successfully logged in. There are some further integration issue's but I'm on the way. Hopefully somebody may find this usefull in the future (and hopefully things will work from here).
Guys....you need to look at your script. It doesnt work! When running the installer its deleting the path and thats not something I can screw up at this end!
I have classifieds up and running at HERE
Here are the current issues, although with current trends I'm expecting more
I now have the "red X" issue with my headers and footers. From your FAQ's it seems I'm expected to edit all my templates to suit your software?
I attempt to log in. The software recognises me, which tells me cookies are fine. I'm redirected back to the classifieds index and cant get into the admin panel.
Whilst I'm having a swell time talking to myself and crunching the issue's with your software why am I having the same issue's that have been reported repeatedly? If this was shareware I'd expect to be running around in PHP Myadmin, and editing templates to suit but its certainly wearing thin This is a saleable product but it doesnt work without a substantial amount of time and input from the customer. The end result looks fine but I question the path to get there!
Looking forward to some support............................

I removed all the cookies settings from PHPmyadmin and ran the following script to re-insert them. It shouldnt make a difference but I'm clutching at straws here...
UPDATE pp_settings SET setting = '/' WHERE varname = 'cookie_path';
UPDATE pp_settings SET setting = '.hemi6pack.com' WHERE varname = 'domain_path';
UPDATE pp_settings SET setting = 'bb' WHERE varname = 'cookieprefix';
I've rechecked my licence number (its definately correct) and I rechecked the settings in the VB3.07 admin panel (correct). I also rechecked the cookie setting in the VB Config file. Its default bb (and is the same in the panel)
No change. I click Admin and it doesnt recognise me, so diverted to a login. When I login it thanks me and sends me back out to the classifieds (instead of the admin panel). If I click the admin panel again the loop restarts.
It seems to me that its not seeing my cookie when I click on admin so it sends me to login and into the loop but what else can I do?? Out of interest I cant find a cookie setting in the config files however setting it up in PHPmyadmin should do the task.
