Tetra-WebBBS Support Forum
: I'm extremely new at a lot of this (although I have a decent
: understanding of html and css) so a I'm getting fairly confused
: even following the setup / advanced setup instructions.
: I followed the setup exactly and have a forum at
: http://www.yourdomain.com/cgi-bin/bbs61x/webbbs_config.pl .
Ohhhh... You're the owner of "yourdomain.com". Congratulations, must get a lot of hits.
: However, step 11 where I need to edit the webbbs_settings.pl
: file has me a little stumped, in particular, this:
: $admin_name = "Administrator";
: $mailprog = '/usr/sbin/sendmail';
: $maillist_address = "forum\@foo.com ";
: $notification_address = "admin\@foo.com ";
: $ReplyToAddress = "invalidAddress\@foo.com ";
: What should I change the 'required basic information' to?
Hmm ..... honestly ......
What on earth isn't intuitive about those variables? Especially considering the information available on Config Board:
If there is a particular thing you don't understand, then please ask a specific question refering to the docs (so it's clear you've read the docs )
: Also, I now want to move the forum so it appears on my front page
: http://www.yourdomain.com . The advanced setup seems to explain
: that, but it's going a bit over my head. Can anyone break it
: down into layman's terms, please?
Please read and follow instructions #1 and #2 on this page:
If there is something particular which is unclear, then please refer to what exactly is unclear.
Sorry to be vague. Only, I've spent really a lot of time writing the docs. Not perfect of course. But it's impossible to do a "rewrite" here on the forum. If you have specific questions, then please ask a specific question. Show us what you have and what you did already. Provide your REAL forum address and turn debug on to let us see ourselves what the details of configs are and where you're standing at the point of your "specific" question.
Oh... and your posts won't be caught by the filters if you set up a profile here. Registered users bypass the filters.
