After installing no way would it work, I couldn\'t find any relevant Q\'s or A\'s in this forum so me and my programming buddy fixed it ourselves - heres how :)

[b]PROBLEM 1[/b]. The install script itself falls over because it tries to UPDATE table #_fb_categories before it\'s been created!

[b]FIX 1[/b] run the actual admin entrypoint script with a task=installfb parameter, like this (replace felixvs/jdev/ with your own development path)

felixvs/jdev/administrator/index.php?option=com_fireboard&task=installfb

[b]PROBLEM 2[/b]. In the back end, trying to create a forum is impossible because it falls over - this time due to a very silly mistake in admin.fireboard.php on line 460 where a define (_FB_TOPLEVEL) is used but enclosed within quotes so its not picked up as a define!

[b]FIX 2[/b]. First you\'ll need to make the script writable, then correct the line - remembering not only to unquote the _FP_TOPLEVEL define but to also make sure that the text it expands to gets quoted in the query. Really - you don\'t want to do this if you don\'t get where i\'m coming from - faint hearted programmers be warned ;)

[b]PROBLEM and FIX 3.[/b] Now you will need to create a Top LEvel Category in the #_fb_categories table - it needs a parent id of 0. You\'ll only need to give values to the parent id (i said that) and the name and a description - make sure its published tho\'

[b]PROBLEM and FIX 4.[/b] Finally, I had some issues with left-over remnants of the demo data, if you are unlucky enough to have played with this and then removed it you will have to remove what it left behind!
Specifically you need to flush the #_fb_messages and #_fb_messages_text tables.

Then you can create a forum in the back end, under Top Level Category that SHOULD show up in the front end, personally I got a bit \'hacky\' at this point so I\'m not certain whether it worked from the back end or whether I had to fix-up the row for the forum in the #_fb_catagories table.

Just make sure that your new forum has the id of Top Level Category (should be 1) as its parent id and things should beok...

Now things should be looking like they\'re working...:cheer:

EXCEPT - don\'t do anything to the smileys in the back end! Thats another problem but for me its CBA.

GOOD LUCK!

Re:Installation Solutions for FB1.0.4 andJoomla! 1 9 Years ago  
I am getting that same problem .. where i cant add a category .. It says no parent in the parent dropdown

I checked line 460 in the admin.fireboard and it looks like there are no brackets like u suggested.. here is the line

$database->setQuery(\"SELECT distinct \'0\' AS value, _FB_TOPLEVEL AS text\" . \"\\nFROM #__fb_categories AS a\" . \"\\nWHERE parent=\'0\' AND id<>\'$row->id\'\" . \"\\nORDER BY ordering\");
$categories = array_merge($categories, (array)$database->loadObjectList());

I can\'t get this to work.. help??

the install of the component simply times out when trying to install Fireboard 1.0.5 RC2.

I tried manually installing it. (legacy mode:( )
but no joy. I get the admin page all full of errors.

Yes, j1.5 is crap when installing...

Try to install from this URL (don\'t download, just ask joomla to install form it)

[code]http://joomlacode.org/gf/download/frsrelease/8676/31958/com_fireboard_v1.0.5RC2_b803_2008-10-06.tar.gz[/code]

Hoo - raaaaay

Everybody relax - FireBoard 1.0.5RC2 is the dog bollx - installs like a dream IF you read the instructions properly and do as it says and up your server\'s php max timeout to something well above 30secs.

Joyio :)

Hi!
I am new to Joomla, Fireboard and everything. I have installed Joomla 1.5.7 (1.0 legacy switched on) and CB 1.2RC3. So far, so good.

Next, I installed Fireboard 1.0.5RC2.

When not logged in, the forum shows up just fine. When logged in I get a whole page of errors:

variable value
$0 \"

$file \"/home/jestoadi/public_html/bluegrass/components/com_fireboard/sources/fb_debug.php\"

....and so on. The end of the page says:
Fatal error: Unable load default view type for user from Community Builder.nDB function failed with error number 1054
Unknown column \'fbviewtype\' in \'field list\' SQL=select fbviewtype from jos_comprofiler where user_id=\'62\'

in /home/jestoadi/public_html/bluegrass/components/com_fireboard/sources/fb_debug.php on line 37

----------

I have tried to remove Fireboard and reinstall. I think maybe the trouble started when I installed the FB demo content.

Help anybody?

Well, I removed everything once more and installed FB 1.0.4. It works.

The only thing that bugs me are these errormessages that I get in the backend:

Warning: mysql_query() [function.mysql-query]: Access denied for user \'jestoadi\'@\'localhost\' (using password: NO) in /home/jestoadi/public_html/bluegrass/administrator/components/com_fireboard/admin.fireboard.php on line 64

Re:Installation Solutions for FB1.0.4 andJoomla! 1 8 Years, 11 Months ago  
to stop the time-out during install, you can make it longer using this code, and undo it after install:


joomla 1.5.x

administrator/index.php
at line 15

[code]
define( \'_JEXEC\', 1 );
[/code]

change to

[code]
define( \'_JEXEC\', 1 );
set_time_limit(300);
ini_set(\"memory_limit\", \"128M\");
[/code]

worked for me :)
