~Modification installation

Step 1: Modify .htaccess file

This step is for those that installed phpFoX Konsort with the Rewrite mode enabled. With your FTP client or hosts file manager navigate to your phpFoX websites root directory.

Open the file .htaccess. It should look something like this (Note: The example below is not an exact replica of how your .htaccess file will look like, we are mainly focusing on the RewriteCond):


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

To get this plug-in properly working you will have to add the following line of code twice in the .htaccess file above each of the RewriteRule inserts:


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

Your .htaccess file would then look like:


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

Step 2: Install vBulletin

Our first step will be to install vBulletin. We can not go into great detail on how to install vBulletin, however you can check out their great documentation here.Before you attempt to install vBulletin there are some factors you will need to take note of:

* When you upload their product it must be placed in a folder and the name of the folder must be forums. This folder must be placed in your phpFoX websites root directory. Proper layout would be: http:///www.yoursite.com/forums/
* The vBulletin tables must be placed in the same database as phpFoX.
* phpFoX should be installed with a database table prefix. By default this prefix is phpfox_. If you did not install phpFoX with a table prefix you will have to install vBulletin with a table prefix.
* This plug-in was not developed to work under a sub-domain environment yet,for that you have to wait for v3. (Example: http://forums.yoursite.com/)
* During the install of vBulletin you will be asked to add an Admin User. This user will shortly be deleted by our integration and replaced with your main phpFoX Admin account.

Step 3: Edit config.php file.

Edit the config.php file in the vbulletin folder and change the name from forums to whatever the vBulletin subfolder is called in the PhpFoX directory.

Step 4: File uploads

Upload the whole vbulletin folder to the phpFoX plugins folder.

Step 5: Importing

Notice: Read this step thoroughly before attempting to import any data.

For those that already have phpFoX running and just installed vBulletin you will have to do the step Import phpFoX Users.

For those that already have vBulletin running and just installed phpFoX you will have to do the step Import vBulletin Users.

Import phpFoX Users
Run the import file through your web browser by entering the URL into your browser address bar (if you have followed our example, type in http://www.domain.com/plugins/vbulle...all/import.php, naturally substituting 'domain.com' for your web address.)

Import vBulletin Users
Run the import file through your web browser by entering the URL into your browser address bar (if you have followed our example, type in http://www.domain.com/plugins/vbulle.../vb_import.php, naturally substituting 'domain.com' for your web address.)

Step 6: Integration and edits

Now lets log into your vBulletin Admin control panel. Note that it will not work to log into your site using the phpFoX login forum. You will have to use the vBulletin login form. (Example: http://www.yoursite.com/forums/index.php). Note that you will need to log into vBulletin with your phpFoX Admin account, which is the same account you log into your phpFoX site.

Follow the next steps below:

Update Forums Cache

Go to: Forums & Moderators >> Forum Manager >> Then edit the forum called Main Category. Save that forum without making any changes.

Update Forums Counters

Go to: Maintenance >> Update Counters Then rebuild the following:

Rebuild Thread Information

and

Rebuild Forum Information

Enable Plug-In System

Go to: vBulletin Options >> vBulletin Options >> Plugin/Hook System

Change the setting:

Enable Plugin/Hook System

To Yes

Importing the plugin

Go to: Plugins & Products >> Manage Products >> Add/Import Product

Look for the block Import Product and then for EITHER upload the XML file from your computer browse for the XML file product-konsort.xml which was part of the package you downloaded from phpFoX. Then click on the import button.

Template edit (Optional)

Go to: Styles & Templates >> Style Manager >> Edit Template (on all your styles) >> Open template header

Remove the part of code between the logo comments.

That would actually be neat if someone had the time to do this..

Go over what features and abilities that PHPFox has:

VS.

vBulletin 4.2x

See if it does make sense or not for everyone...

Thanks!

I haven't seen the ability to customize profiles like PHP Fox has. They have the ability to change almost every part of the page to a different color of background picture, and for people to pick which modules they want on their profile page, and to be able to move the modules around. If their is a Vb mod for that I'd like to know.

I'm seeing this same error and though a link was provided to solve this in this thread, there seems to be no access to the info at the link. Was this problem ever solved?

Dunno if you solved this or not, but I would guess that you are installing with the short URL enabled tru Phpfox. Saw the same issue and resolved it by turning off short url's until I completed that step.

Depending on what you are looking for in the way of a front end for Vb forums, Phpfox does make sense for some applications. The CMS it has is much easier to work with than the VB4 suite version of CMS and it does give you the ability of having way better member pages.

There is a plugin/product out there for the latest versions of both VB and phpfox , ($40), but it has some issues. Install instructions are pretty inaccurate and sketchy with it and due to some errors will only work with short URL re-write enabled on your server and a REAL lot of tweaking.

A free version should be out before too long.

Got an answer from a phpfox coder on this one. If you disable Gzip compression in the Vbulletin AdminCP options it fixes the problem.

Thanks Komplex!
