  • Edit config.php question ?

    I am editting the vBulletin config.php file per instructions in the manual.

    "To edit the config.php file, you will need to open the file in a text editor such as Windows® WordPad. (Note that we do not recommend that you use Windows® Notepad to edit config.php, as Notepad has problems displaying the line breaks in some file types.)"

    I am attempting to "save" the file I editted values in WordPad, but it gives this warning as I try to save:

    "You are trying to save the document in a Text-Only format, which will remove all formatting. Are you sure you want to do this ?"

    My only options for saving that remain are : RTF (Rich Text Format), Text Document - MS-DOS- format, and Unicode Text Document.

    Which do I choose to save the value changes in the file ?
    (I'll wait for word from you before I save... )

    Save it as text and make sure word wrapping is turned off.

      Thanks, Steve !


      I turned off all wrapping, and saved as Text-Only. (It still appears as WordPad in config folder when I open up - is that correct ? All values were saved though.)

        I don't understand what you just asked, but the correct way to edit and save config.php is as text with word-wrapping off.

          It seems to have saved all the necessary values correctly. I saved as you instructed with word-wrapping off. I will now proceed to upload this "upload" folder to my web server.

          Thanks again.

            You upload this to your 'includes' directory. Make sure you upload the file in ASCII format.
