I read all warnings and now i m going to ask again .. :P

Is it okay to use it online .. if i change the structure

testingdomain.tld
/quickinstall (chmod 750 or remove public access permission after use)
/test/boards
/test/cache

Does that sounds okay?

Might be, if you password protect the QI directory. But it is not designed to be used on-line, the inner security is done with local usage in mind.

Hello,

could you build in an admin controle panel to manage the boards to turn them online and offline.

No, phpBB QI is intended for testing your code. Not to use as a hosting script.

Hi All,
I have been using Quick install for sometime now on Localhost without any issues, I upgraded the files from the Git & all seemed to go well, today, I went to register on the new testboard & the Captcha Image is not showing, so registration cannot be completed.

If I install a 3.0.11 board as normal the Spambot countermeasures default is GD Image & the other supplied Captcha's can be selected & Images seen in the preview window, However, when a new board is made with Quick install the default Spambot countermeasures becomes Simple Image & the Image is not shown in the preview window.

The same 3.0.11 files were used for both tests.
I don't use this live but thought Id bring it to you attention or @ least see if anyone else has the same issue.
Regards

Thanks, I'll have a look at that. IIRC nothing that has to do with registration or CAPTCHA is changed. The board settings should be the default since phpBB's own install script is used.

Thanks for the reply Tumba25,

I have just re downloaded the package from the Git & installed it into my Ampps local server & its working fine with a new install, soooo, there's either something wrong with xampp or the quick install that I've been using for sometime or both?

I will look into this on the weekend & let you know the outcome.

Regards

It's not quick install @ fault here but xampp, version I'm using is 181 for windows.

I reinstalled xampp, set it up, added quick install & configured it, populated a board & the error with the captch was still present.

I copied the quick install directory into Ampps, edited the qi.config to alter DB pass & fired it up, populated a board & all is ok.

So sadly me & my faithful xampp need to part & make way for my new server environment Ampps, Good thing with this application is phpmyadmin/php & anything else related to updates are done by the click of a button, where upgrading xampp is another story.lol

Regards

Ampps

Have you tried XAMPP(the official site for XAMPP). Version 1.8.1 on my computer and quickinstall current version works correctly for me.

Hi,
Yes that's where I get it from, it could be windows 7? only recently upgraded to it from xp, However,Ampps is doing fine & as said above, updates @ a click of a button, so stick with it I think, especially with the updates going on with phpmyadmin & php of late.

Update:

Simple Image & the Image is not shown in the preview window

I had the same issue arise with the captcha Simple Image not showing again with phpBB 3.0.11, but this time I found the issue, php version 5.4 reverting to 5.3 cured it, However, 5.4 works fine with phpBB 3.0.12RC1 Installed using quick install.

Hope it helps someone down the line, but I should of thought of that :evil:
