IPB and MyBB - trying to get one to work


Recommended Posts

Ok, I have IPB (for work) and MyBB (for personal experience) and trying to get either one to setup on a Windows based machine (work doesn't have a Linux box to use). I have Windows 2000 Pro SP4 on my laptop, and Windows 2003 Server and Windows 2003 x64 Server (on a development and production servers respectively).I finished manually configuring PHP by editing the PHP.INI file in located at C:\WINNT to use MSSQL and MySQL and changed the line from 'extension_dir = "./"' to 'extension_dir = "C:/php/"'. I also added 'C:\PHP' and 'C:\PHP\PEAR' (per the error below) to the system PATH variable. With all of that said and done, I get the following errors for MyBB on the same page:

Warning: require(../inc/db_.php) [function.require]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\forums-mybb\install\index.php on line 461Fatal error: require() [function.require]: Failed opening required '../inc/db_.php' (include_path='.;C:\php5\pear') in C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\forums-mybb\install\index.php on line 461

which is where I'm at and unable to move forward. I have MySQL 5.0.18 and PHP 5.1.2 installed on Windows 2000 Pro SP4 with IIS 5.0. This is being done on my laptop for my own experience with the notes to be used for work. Yes, I'm aware that IPB will not work with MySQL 5.x, and that I will need MySQL 4.x for IPB.Thanks - PC-Tecky

The reason IPB may not work with MySQL 5.x might have to do with this issue and resolution.Perhaps fix the include path in the IPB ini file to point to the full include path. Does the Windows version care about the slash being forward or backward? Maybe try both to see which one it is.

Update...Alright, MyBB is working on my laptop with MySQL 5.x (nearly the latest) and at work we've gotten IPB to work using MySQL 4.x both of which are on window machines.Ok - I think I figured most of it out. Thanks.
