Clean Install - How To 10 Years, 1 Month ago  
Okay. This isn\'t referring to a [b]FRESH[/b] Install but rather a [b]CLEAN[/b] install where you would need to wipe the slate (database) clean of your previous FB install and reinstall it. This is taken straight from the manual included in the FB download (with a little editing).

[b]Uninstalling Fireboard[/b]

[b]Important Note[/b]
By Uninstalling all your Fireboard files will be deleted! However, if you have a version greater than 1.0.2, your uploaded files, avatars and all the files that are under “Joomla_Root/images” directory will not be deleted. Also, your database tables will not be dropped.

1. Go to Administrator > Installers > Components
2. Select Fireboard and click Uninstall.
3. After this point, you can decide if you want to completely uninstall Fireboard or leave the database tables and uploaded files intact.
3.1. If you want to completely Uninstall fireboard:
Apply the following database queries:

[code:1]DROP TABLE `jos_fb_announcement` ,
`jos_fb_attachments` , `jos_fb_categories` , `jos_fb_favorites` , `jos_fb_groups` , `jos_fb_messages` , `jos_fb_messages_text` , `jos_fb_moderation` , `jos_fb_ranks` , `jos_fb_sessions` , `jos_fb_smileys` , `jos_fb_subscriptions` , `jos_fb_users` , `jos_fb_whoisonline`[/code:1]

(If you don’t know how to access/use phpmyadmin, please read: http://community.mybboard.net/showthread.php?tid=4720)

[b]FAILURE TO EXECUTE STEP 3.1 WILL RESULT IN foreach() (and possibly other) ERRORS!! You have been warned.[/b]

4. Delete “Joomla_Root/images/fbfiles/” directory.

[b]Installation/Reinstallation[/b]

1. First, unpack the archive on your local computer.
2. Go to your Joomla! Administration > Installer > Components
3. Click Browse, Select the package (zip) and click on “Install”.
4. After a successful installation, go to Components > Fireboard Forum
5. Once you enter the control panel, at top of the page you will notice a dialog asking you whether you want to upgrade from “Joomlaboard” or a “Clean Install”. If you click on Clean Install you will have a fresh installation of Fireboard and necessary database tables are generated automatically.
6. [Optional] You can also try your new board by “loading sample data” which creates a dummy category and a post. We recommend this option to get familiar with creation of categories and post administration.

However while step 6 is recommended in the manual I do not. It seems to cause more problems than it solves. I personally have never installed the sample data and have had no problems whatsoever.

If all went well, nothing.

Re:Clean Install - How To 10 Years ago  
Looks like a few tables to be dropped may be missing from the above list. Would be great if this could be confirmed but as per the manual looks like the above string has left off

`jos_fb_moderation` , `jos_fb_ranks` , `jos_fb_sessions` , `jos_fb_smileys` , `jos_fb_subscriptions` , `jos_fb_users` , `jos_fb_whoisonline`

so the complete query would read:
DROP TABLE `jos_fb_announcement` ,
`jos_fb_attachments` , `jos_fb_categories` , `jos_fb_favorites` , `jos_fb_groups` , `jos_fb_messages` , `jos_fb_messages_text` , `jos_fb_moderation` , `jos_fb_ranks` , `jos_fb_sessions` , `jos_fb_smileys` , `jos_fb_subscriptions` , `jos_fb_users` , `jos_fb_whoisonline`

cheers! ANi_G
PS: The post was super helpful (including the link to the phpmyadmin helpforum which was invaluable/essential for me a MySQL novices) If I could make a suggestion? it would be brilliant to insert this link in the manual (pg.10 Uninstalling)) as it takes the mystery out of querying the db for noobs.

Thanks. Glad it was helpful. The query is complete. The code view pushes most of it right off the screen.

If it\'s working why do you need a patch? The answer is \"nothing\".
