Re: CBB 301: Anonymous cannot view

Then I went to the permissions section of Cbb and it worked because a new permission menu appeared that was not there before that allowed me to issue Forum category permissions.


I've never had a menu issue. It looks like all the perms menus are there, but just they are not taking effect/being applied.

I haven't had a chance to try applying the permissions directly at the database level (seems Im busier on the weekends than I am during the work week). Hopefully I will have a chance after work today to pursue this further.

Thanks

I'm having some of the same challenges with permissions not working - I suppose you could always go to the MySQL and change the permissions there - I might do that myself.


If it is a case that the permissions are not being updated in the database, then I am getting a false positive when settings.

Xoops is telling me that the table updates are successful. I will dig into this further, see about manually setting them directly. Ill report my findings here.

Thanks!

CBB 301: Anonymous cannot view

Ive been working on this, off and on, for a couple days now. I've search here and on google, but haven't found an answer to my problem.

Xoops 2.0.13.2
CBB 3.0.1
Framework for XOOPS 22 is in the xoops_root/Framework directory.

My problem is that I have set Anonymous access to the categories I want (boxes are checked).

Ive set Access and View to the forums within those categories to allow Anonymous (again, boxes checked).

But when an Anonymous user attempts to view a recent post or access the forums index, they receive an access denied message and redirected to the homepage.

Im not sure what I am missing here, but I assume its something simple and quite obvious.

Any pointers greatly appreciated!

Re: Geeklog to XOOP Migration Tools?

Quote:
Just as an aside, what particular issues are you having with Geeklog? Was there any feature (or features) that you are looking for in XOOPS?
:ackbarr

ackbarr,

Sorry to resurect an old thread here.... but have you ever worked with Geeklog and tried to apply security fixes to multiple GL sites? Which, by the way, means you have to update each and every install of GL because there is no manageable multisite configuration for it. Also note that most updates pretty much required a re-install and migration of settings in your config.php.

Don't get me wrong, GL is great if you're just running a single site, for a family blog say. As a matter of fact, I know one of the lead developers personally and have been running GL for a few years before I out grew it.

But if you get into multisite hosting, there are better CMS' (xoops anyone? or drupal?) out there for that.

Re: Multisite HACK for 2.2.3 Final

Quote:
On a Apache/Linux server, you can use symlinks so you would have

/websites/common
with all the files and directories except mainfile.php, templates_c, cache and (perhaps) uploads

and for the subsites, you'd have
/websites/site1
/websites/site2
/websites/site2


Thanks much for the response! Thats exactly what I am looking for. I assume things like the mainfile.php and templates_c are updated but not as often as other files?

With that, I apologize for hijacking the thread and will let you get back to the Multisite core hack.

Thanks again!!

Re: Multisite HACK for 2.2.3 Final

Deepy, thanks for the indepth response. It answered my initial questions quite well. But, unfortunately, has led to others :).

Quote:
If you wanna have an excellent application control, permission and groups features, simply close your eyes and work with XOOPS with some frustration during the installation phase as a beginner. If you are experienced programmer, things will go forward with a simple click in seconds...


Ive tackled some pretty ugly CMS applications before. xoops, in its basic form, installed without a hitch.

Quote:
4. Install multisites module and generate the first subsite1. It is here you decide which tables you wanna clone, including users table, sessions, news, forum, etc. Hence if you have feed all necessary information in the core preferences and also in the modules <SNIP>


This is where I kind of run off the tracks. Maybe a brief list of my requirements will get me straightened out, and help others to understand as well.

First, I must have separate databases for security/privacy reasons. Each day, client databases are dumped, pgp'd and put on an ftp site for client retrieval. As you can imagine, sharing a database would mean all clients would have each others usernames and passwords. Legally, I think this would get me into a mess.

Second, as it currently stands, I have a CMS (which shall remain unamed :) ) codebase installed for EACH client, even though they are all using the same CMS. This leads me to patching each install whenever a security fix is released. This is what I am trying to get away from. I want to patch once, and have it apply to all sites hosted with that particular CMS (hopefully xoops).

Third, I'm a lazy admin. If I didn't admit it, someone would have called me lazy anyway.

So, a single code core install of XOOPS supporting multiple sites with their own, dedicated, databases. Single point to patch. Possible?

Thanks so much for the complete repsonses!

Re: Multisite HACK for 2.2.3 Final

Pardon me if this is a newbie... Well, I know it will be because I am currently researching CMS packages to replace what I have.

It looks to me like this discussion revolves around the sharing of databases, or portions of, among many sites.

What I am in search of is a common code base install that supports multiple sites (each with its own database) from a single CMS instalation. Is XOOPS capable of this? Or am I missing some key point completely?

Thanks
