~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.

Is anyone else using this with phpfox 2.1.6? And are your forums & posts being marked read if you read them from the button?
This is my only bug now, unless I follow the path completely thru the forum, then the thread, it remains marked unread.
I also have the same login quirk as you Tony. I wonder if it would be better to just remove the login form from VB so that users must login from the phpfox index?

I have your older version of phpfox 1.6.20 and vbulletin integration. I want to upgrade to the new version of the integration. Do I uninstall the the plug-in from vbulletin admin? What about the phpfox side? and then install the new integration plug-in?

I have some questions:
1. I have some forum that are only availabe to admins, when admins opens a new topic in that admin only forum section, the new forum topic shows up on phpfox side to everyone. So then if a non-admin user clicks on the new forum topic from phpfox (NEW FORUM TOPICS) they get an message that says that they don't have access to this topic. How do I remove non-admins to view latest topics that are posted in admin only section of the forum?

2. When I delete a user from phpfox side, my users don't get deleted in vbulletin. Do I have to delete them manually?

3. I am using joomla for CMS and I want users to be able to login from anywhere in the site. Vbulletin, phpfox, joomla, and other static pages. I want to use this mod and place it on top of all pages on my site. Is there a better way? What can I do to allow users to be able to login on top of any page on my site?

Thanks a lot already.

I have vbulletin integrated with phpfox. Everything is ok when you login via phpfox, but the members who go straight to the forums and login get the following warnings appearing briefly:

Content Encoding Error

The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because it uses an invalid or unsupported form of compression.

Highest versions on both.

Also don't worry about this anymore... I've uninstalled both vB and phpFox. I'm still unsure on what type of site I'm going to run...
