Ive reinstalled the photopost SO MANY times without any success, reuploaded all the files, redownloaded the zip and did it all again. Tried using the vbulletin table, or outside creating photopost database and no luck!
What is your server path to vbulletin? I would tend to think Photopost being a white page while alot of server's tell you the error yours is not. You entered an incorrect path to the forums so we can not find global.php You can edit config-int.php and look at the $vbpath variable and correct the vbulletin server path.
Cookie settings also you most likely forgot here to enter bb as your cookie prefix. You can rerun install or using phpmyadmin make setting 172 in the photopost settings table bb
Your vbulletin cookies should be this
cookie path /
cookie domain .domain.com note the dot in front.
cookie prefix by default is in the config file of vb and is bb
Garry already said this and it's right on. When you install make sure to select vbulletin integration and enter all the correct information. Basically you can not find the global.php file because you are not inputting the correct server path to the forum directory on the last step of install where it asks urls and paths for the integration. We make suggestions but you need to verify and correct. As long as everything is entered correctly on an install things go fine.
Here are the number 4 mistakes I see on vb3 installs so you can avoid them when correcting your issue.
1. Customers installs and enters forum server path incorrectly resulting in global.php not being found.
2. Customer enters in first step of install incorrect database info to connect to vbulletin. IE enters photopost's database info and then tries to do an install and gets mysql fetch array error line 25 of vb3.php
3. Customer does not enter mysql table prefix of vbulletin tables resulting in same error above mysql fetch array error line 25 of vb3.php.
4. Customer does not enter proper cookie prefix for vbulletin which results in admin login loop trying to get into photopost admin. We use the vbulletin cookies on front end since we load the vbulletin header however on admin side since we do not load vbulletin header etc you must have cookies properly configured.
I did set to on and off the 3 vb settings (on for vb integration and off for standalone)...
Its weird because now, I do have full access to the admin control panel (on the photopost). I went and edited the pp_settings table and changed to the correct path for everything, checked the config_inc and config_int files for the correct path
Set the bb prefix for the cookies, .jeeperos.com for the path and so.
Is there any other file that needs to be edited (once its on the server?)
On the side let me make something clear: Ive installed and used photopost before and THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH IT, the problem here is either me making errors during the install or me not knowing the proper paths, or who knows but Im sure its not the software, since Ive made it work before.
Yep alot of people don't realize that one. We can only SUGGEST a path on install and that path would be that of where the install script is running. Thus a customer has to enter the proper path and most bypass this which causes the error cause the path is wrong.
