Note: Just another useless change, trying to get the post-commit script to work.

1Check out the EVE-Development Network for support, bugfixes and new versions at
3Developers wanted! If you'd like to contibute to further version of this killboard, sign up for the EVE-Dev forums at
8- Webserver (apache)
9- PHP4+
10- Mysql 4+
11- basic knowledge of the above
13Quick setup:
15- Setup a mysql database
16- Run sql/install.sql on that database (Use trimmed_install.sql if you don't want to import the original DB that was populated with pilots, corps, and alliances)
17- Extract archive to your webserver's rootdirectory
18- Set permissions so that the user your webserver runs under is allowed to create files in cache/map and cache/portraits.
19- Enable URL file access in your PHP configuration
20- Edit config.php:
22  o KB_HOST should be set to the FQDN your killboard is at, e.g.
23  o Leave KB_SITE as it is
24  o CORP_ID or ALLIANCE_ID should be set to the ID of your corp or alliance.
25    You can lookup the id in the database tables kb3_corps (crp_id) or
26    kb3_alliances (all_id). If it's not there yet, just add a new entry in the table and use that id instead. Make sure you set one of the two to 0.
27  o KB_CACHE can be set to 1 to enable page caching. You probably won't need this for a single hosted killboard. If you do use it, make sure the directory used to store the cached pages in is outside your webroot.
28  o STYLE_URL, COMMON_URL, IMG_URL need to be set correctly. E.g., or This goes for the other 2 as well.
29  o Database credentials go into the DB_HOST, DB_NAME, DB_USER, DB_PASS variables.
31- Remove the sql/ directory from your webroot.
32- Have fun ;)
