It turned your forum off or the mod? When you first install the mod, you will need to create a category and configure each of the modules for it to work. You also need to edit the settings, specifically the Path To Downloads one. This is the path to your downloads folder. To get this to work, create a folder called downloads outside of your public_html folder then edit the above setting to match this.

For example, I use: /home/david/downloads. Yours will be different that this but will have the same structure.

I hope this makes sense. Let me know if it doesn't and I will try to assist you further.

This has been resolved on legion!'s site. For future reference, after installation you will need to go into the manage modules section in the AdminCP and configure each of the modules listed.

Hello, I was wondering... does buying 'pro' mean that you can have download links "password protected" ?

What it means is that when you visit vbdownloads.php?do=download or vbdownloads.php?do=file, if the download requires a password a page will popup with an area to input the password. Once this is entered correctly you will be able to view the page as normal. I hope this makes sense.

flutter 24 Oct 2010 11:25

I'm using this one as a test before perhaps upgrading to pro.

Now I got into the settings and it's asking me the path to my downlaods directory and I'm not sure what to do there. Please kn ow that I'm new to vb and not sure about intalling mods yet.

The problem is that my site I'm using for testing vb is an add on so I don't see the full path in core ftp. Do I have to set this or is it automatically set to find files in the folder?

Oh dear, crashed my site. Are there any instal instructions for this? I don't think I did it right

Hey,

You can use the attached file to find your directory. Upload it to your public_html/www folder and run it. The just alter it to wherever you have your downloads folder (I recommend having your downloads folder outside of the public_html/www folder).

For example, my path is:
/home/david/downloads

while the path to my forum is
/home/david/public_html/forum

If you need further assistance please do not hesitate to ask.

- David

flutter 24 Oct 2010 13:04

On looking at what you have in your example I do have the correct path. I don't know what you mean by having my downloads folder outside the public_html folder, it's a host gator site and I'm not sure it would owrk like that. Sorry for being so stupid with this, I've just never done this before. Do I have to make the folder? Or do I move the one you gave me for it?

I think I'd really need install instructions for dummies if you could give me some.

I took the db tech folder out to move it to outside the publi_html and I can't get up another level with core ftp, it's an add on site. I'll try moving it to the folder of the main site

I'm now getting this error

Warning: require_once([path]/dbtech/downloads/hooks/cache_templates.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in [path]/includes/class_bootstrap.php(1280) : eval()'d code on line 69

flutter 24 Oct 2010 13:20

Sorry to double post but I got rid of that error and now I have this

http://www.prettysims.co.uk/content.php

Thats what I had the first time.

Black Tiger 24 Oct 2010 13:57

Seems interesting, tagged for now.

flutter 24 Oct 2010 14:23

guess I need to change my password now, can't remove that link

The only thing you need outside of public_html is the /downloads/ folder. Everything else goes to where your forum is (the folder with /admincp /images /includes etc).

DragonByte Tech 24 Oct 2010 16:56

Updated the zip:

No version change at this time, just some minor bug fixed.

- Module configuration warning should only should up in vbdownloads.php now.
- Fixed a CSS bug
- Fixed a bug in vBShout Integration that caused it to link to the wrong file.

To upgrade just reupload all the files and reimport the product file setting overwrite to yes.

DragonByte Tech 23 Nov 2010 21:11

** Updated to 1.2.0 **

This version introduces a number of exciting features into the mod that we hope you will enjoy.

Changes:
Post to Thread*** - Allows administrators to select which forums they would like new threads to go to on a per-category basis with configurable messages.

Delay Downloads*** - This will allow you to add a delay to downloads per usergroup. For example, if you put a 10 second delay on the Registered Users usergroup, when they click a file they will need to wait 10 seconds before it is available. There is also an optional advertisement option that is configurable in the vBulletin Options section of your administration panel.

Category Images - This will remove the default text based category names with an image of your choice allow for a much nicer looking downloads homepage.

Searchable Area - This is a central location where users can view all downloads based on a certain criteria. For example, they could view all files based on the amount of downloads they have.

Profile Tab - This will add a profile tab to user's profiles which will display all of their uploads.

Notification on comment *** - This feature will give users an alert when another user has commented on their upload.

Those marked with *** are pro only features.

This version also fixes an issue that was present with categories from the previous version. We hope you enjoy this update.

- David

Are you sure all your files are 3.8.7? I look at my 3.8.7 init.php and it shows this at line 134


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

only the older init.php files had the code like this


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

This is a vB thing, not a downloads thing. The downloads mod doesn't mess with the settings files.

Creating a link depends on the style and type of menu you have. I can give you a generic way to add a link to the nav if you want.

Installing this on vb 3.8.7. I used cuteftp to upload all the files, they are uploaded correctly I double checked. I get an error while uploading the product via admin cp. I used the xml file from the vb3 folder as I use version 3.8

Error I receive


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Granted I understand the error has something to do with line 36 in the class_install.php file so I opened it in DW and this is what is on line 36.


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

Looking at the other lines of code (knowing nothing about php) it all looks the same. Not sure what the issue is.

Any ideas?

DragonByte Tech 21 Nov 2011 08:39

vBDownloads is not compatible with PHP 4, please have your host upgrade to PHP 5.

PHP 4 has been unsupported by The PHP Group for something like 3 years now :)

Using the lite version but I don't have any options in the admin cp? The only options I have are under Vbulletin Options, and usergroups but there are no options to add categories etc.

On the download page I don't have an option to upload a file.

ozzy47 29 Dec 2013 12:47

You need to add yourself to Super Administrator in includes/config.php or use your Super Administrator account to grant your normal admin account "Can Administer vBDownloads".

You then need to edit usergroup permissions in each separate category.

I am getting a "You don't have permission to access /forums/vbdownloads.php on this server."

When I go to save an upload.

Even when adding a file to upload it tells me "Error: Forbidden" next to the file.

ALL my permissions allow me to do everything, I am using the Administrator account, admin permissions for my user allow me to Can Administer vBDownloads. usergroup is all yes for the vbdownloads permissions and in the permissions for the catagory all 3 are checked as yes, view, download and upload. I can create and edit Extensions, I can create and edit Category. I can do everything with the Mod except upload files.

This started with version 2.3.0, version 2.3.1 does not fix this issue.

Max upload size needs to be at least twice that of the file to upload, and Max POST Size should be double the file size too.

Also, for Internal Server Error messages you need to inspect your server's error log file for more information.
