  • [Forum] Do Not Upload

    Ok now that I have the basic and all is working... when I unzipped the Vbulletin Suite 4 one folder do not upload. I see it has some utility programs I guess what do I do with these or how do they work? (Thanks)

    It would be a good idea to read the manual before you go any further.

    For your specific question, the manuel says:

    From which:

    The second folder is do_not_upload - This folder contains tools to perform various tasks on your board
    searchshell.php - This file will allow you to rebuild the search index. - This file will allow you to run a database backup via SSH/Telnet or a scheduled backup through cron.
    tools.php - This file must be uploaded to the admincp folder and allows you to perform certain tasks should your board go down or you accidentally lock yourself out of the Admin Control Panel. This file must be deleted immediately after use or it will cause a SEVERE security problem.
    Installing isn't a trival process so carefully reading through the manual first will help prevent major problems.

        Well here is what I did
        uploaded tools.php to admincp folder
        uploaded searchindex.php to the admincp folder

        index.html guess you do nothing with?
        Folder names rewrite not sure about?
