I just went through that-- I think you're better off preserving your root login just in case XOOPS is compromised.

You created a new MySQL database, and you then have to create a user AND give that user permission to access the database (I suppose root would work, but you still would have to give user "root" permissions for that database. See why 'root' is too confusing-- just create a new user for it).

I did that via Cpanel, not PHPMyAdmin. So how you do it may vary, but that last step is what I have forgotten on the two installations I did-- assigning the user to the database. Once I did that, install script was able to find it without problem.

Module Repository and current versions

Rather new to Xoops, and I like it a lot. I have found that the Module Repository info is often very incomplete, and versions are often not updated. Most recently I installed piCal .51 from the Module Repository (still there) and later found it is not the most current version by far... it makes me wonder how many other modules are not being updated in the repository, and it makes me wonder "if not, why not?"

Looking for modules is also often difficult, because the descriptions are vague, or go something like, "based on the so-and-so module in Nuke..." and who knows what that's all about. The search engine doesn't help if a good description of the module's purpose is not there.

Point is, many of us are new to XOOPS and new to portals and CMSes in general, so if XOOPS is to grow with people like me, it needs to be a little more user-friendly about the stuff like modules and themes.

Do you have submission requirements for module developers? Do they have reasons for not keeping their module versions current and descriptions complete in the repository? Is there strife here I should know about?

But I have another comparative question: Edito is better than wfsections or icontent to create pages?

I am interested in any opinions on this, too.

Look in administration menu at the bottom.


That says 2.0.9.2
version.php says 2.0.9.2
but my home page says: Powered by Xoops2.05¡¡

Is that a normal behavior for Xoops?

Thanks for any input...

Any ideas on how to "share" a login for XOOPS and Menalto Gallery -- so the users didnt have to login twice?


I am not familiar with Menalto, but would you need to password protect it? If it's embedded in your site, no one can see the pages (or find any links to the pages) without being a registered member...

just an idea. T
