Seems that i have couple of strange issues:
- when posting news to main page, "posted by" url is empty, to main page(not url to posters account)
- my rss feed only shows headlines, when clicking on them its 404error, seems that backend.php cant generate pages. i valideted my backend.php and it was ok
- my encryption for sentinel admin authCGI doesnt work(to get in i have to copy the encrypted password and use it, or just use plain text password) Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login!

for some reason i think all those problemes are related to something i have missed, been reading and searching, but cant find anyone with even one similar problem,,,i just cant figure out what i did wrong....

using 76 distro on xampp 1.5.5, both new and clean installs

Just so you know, xampp is using versions of PHP and mySQL that are not "certified" to work with PHP-Nuke let alone RavenNuke. So, you might be experiencing some issues related to that.

However, make absolutely certain that ALL your files were uploaded. Can't tell you how many times someone's FTP client / connection hosed things up.

Ok, thx, dont think i am missing files, the zip package is stored on server (the server is here at home, just on differnt outside ip, so i can configure and test it both locally and from internet).

The backend.php is supposed to work out of the box? no place where a url has to be placed?(like the subscription url)

Xampp has it own control panel, logon to xampp works with encrypted password...strange. There are php4 and php5.2.0 to switch between in xampp, ill try test php4 later...,seems nothing to do with safe mode either, tested both.
(mysql version is 5.0.27)

That "posted by" issue seems to be on lots of sites, exept here on raven..(checked here first and tought i was missing something, but now i see i am not alone Smile)

(this is propaly phpbb issue, but i noticed that forum mail doesnt seem to work at all(tested my own smtp, local, isp smtp), in the same time all mail functions are ok from php side, just the forum-ones that dont work.)

Otherwise everyting seems to work just fine, and above function i really dont need, just annoys me to know that i maybe missed something, and cant stand small problems that i cant fix..lol., but you propably right, maybe its something on my server, not the raven-pack itself.
Its just a hobby project i started on when i got an extra computer, just trying to learn something Very Happy

Edit: quess i should mention that these wasnt only small issues i had, fixed some stuff too: like commentary box was down on page, posted news didnt show time etc.

Not 100% sure what you mean by this. But backend.php should be generating an RSS compatible feed. What do you see when you go to Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login! I have not heard of any issues with backend.php on RavenNuke 2.02.02 except possibly with certain encodings.

I know that several issues have been posted in the forums this year, but couldn't possibly point you to them. We have done nothing yet on trying to upgrade PHP-Nuke (RavenNuke) to run 100% tested on PHP 5.x and mySQL 5.0.x.

If standard PHP mail() function is working on your setup, then do NOT use SMTP on the forums side. Clear out all that information in the forums configuration and make sure it says "No". If that does not work, then something within phpBB is not working right with either the PHP or mySQL version you are using.

What is "commentary box"? With regards to the not posting of the time, that is just standard nuke. You changed the DATESTRING in the language file right?

I see headlines in readers, but clicking on them just brings me to 404 error(object not found). Fo for exapmle Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login! While trying in headlines from my account in nuke it just says problem with headlines from this site.

Yes, i was reading those, none off them seemed to be exactly like mine encrypted/unecrypted problem though...i skip this for now and run my box with AdminAuth off in NS and standard plain text passwords for admin pages.

Yes, changed the datestring. Sorry, the comments-box for news, it dropped down under last right side box, but thats also fixed.

Run inte some other stuff also while testing, tried to implememnt Smelters NSVnukemodule from Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login! as im running a shoutcast server also, it seems to buffer like 1-3% and skips the stream.
I know its old, maybe not compatible with newer phpNukes, anyoone know if there is some newer modules for NSV shoutcast streaming worth testing?

Sorry, lots of questions in same place, and propably shouldnt spend much time with these small issues and testing, when i am running not fully compatible versions of php and mysql. Xampp is just so easy to set up. Is there any other recommended packages out there which includes tested versions of php and mysql(i could install another server package for testing).
I know phpNuke is ment to be uploaded to isp hosting, but i have anyway a computer running other servers at home, tought i might add a small website on same machine.

You have some form of GoogleTap or ShortLinks installed but you do not have the corresponding rewrite statements in .htaccess working. Apache mod_rewrite module must be running and the appropriate RewriteRule statements found in the .htaccess file in order for the URL you posted to find the news article.

RSS no fixed
the backend.php issue now solved

replacing: echo "<link>$nukeurl/article-$rsid--0-0.html</link>\n";
with: echo '<link>'.$nukeurl.'/modules.php?name=News&amp;file=article&amp;sid='.$rsid.'</link>'."\n";

in backend.php

as in this post Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login!
(thx montego for pointing me there, dont know how i missed that earlier)



About the Admin auth issue.
In Xampp php runs as Apache module, but NukeSentinel dont show that option. Probably AuthCGI wont work because php is run under Apache then?

So i guess the bottom problem is: NukeSentinel dont find the correct option how my php is run.

This can also happen when register_globals is turned "off", which is actually a more secure way of running nuke. AuthCGI should work just fine. It is HTTPAuth that might not.

Globals were off when i installed ravens distro, but has been on last 4-5 days, also been testing with safe mode off(its on atm).

Does NS only do AuthHttp check when installing?

Been testing a bit changing some setting, with no result...AuthHttp dont show up in NS, AuthCGI seems to do everything right, but when logging in it wont encrytp, have to use exact string from .staccess, crypted or not.

These are the php core settings atm, maybe somebody can find something wrong there?

register_globals On On

Definitely odd. It works for me on my XAMP 1.5.5 installation on my PC. I do not see anything wrong with this list. (BTW, if this installation is accessible via the internet, I would edit out all but the register_globals line.)

What O/S is this running on? I am on WinXP where I am testing this.

well, actually it is accessaible via internet, but mostly just for testing and learning...

Its running under WinXP, deffault installations of both xampp 1.5.5, raven distro v2.02.00, exept for the port, running behind a router whit just the changed http port open for website(although there are couple other servers running on same computer).

You got AuthHTTP visible in NS or use successfully AuthCGI? or maybe both options worked nicely?

Yes, very strange. I am able to both see HTTPAuth in the list and when I use it, it works. I wonder if the port has anything to do with it (I am really "reaching" here...)....

I am not sure what else to try. I am going to have to see if anyone else here can help. Hopefully someone more knowledgeable on the server end, like maybe Raven, Evaders or Darklord may have another clue.

That has crossed my mind also. Although i dont really need encryption(it still works with plain text password anyway), just cant stand unsolved problems Very Happy
I will maybe try changenging the port to standard, or maybe make another install of Xampp + raven just to test those things... but that is someday in the future....

No problem. If you ever find out what was wrong please post the root cause and resolution here just in case others run into the same issue. Good luck!
