  • Learning installation

    Is it possible to install another version of vbulletin on a different, private server which only I will access to practice installing mods and hacks onto and testing new colour schemes etc.

    It will be a f2s account becuase I wont be needing to use it to post etc, just practice editing vbulletin php files.

    is this allowed?

    if not, I wont do it, if so, i would like to know.

    thanks

    I think a test forum is allowed, as long as it isn't a "live" forum ...

      Yes, as long as you keep it private, it's ok.

        as long as it's for testing purposes and that it's private and inaccessible to the public

            you need to turn on register_globals in your php.ini file .. do you have a dedicated server and root telnet access ?

            remember to use mysql server = localhost

              This is on a www.f2s.com account, I dont have a php.ini

              However... if I was to install PHP and Apache and MySQL, can I run them over a 56k modem? I would just have to use my IP address each time yeah? Or is htere a simpler way of installing them and running them on my hard disk so I can test them privately?

                    Have you tried "localhost" instead of "server0039.freedom2surf.net" ... then again, I dunno how f2s servers work...
