root/dev/README.txt @ 4

Revision 4, 1.4 KB (checked in by andrewgunn, 16 years ago)

Added: A nice little bit of text telling people to go to for bugfixes and updates. Mostly I just did this so that I had something to commit, to make sure that each new revision gets copied to the test killboard.

1Check out the EVE-Development Network for bugfixes and new versions at
5- webserver (apache)
6- PHP4+
7- Mysql 4+
8- basic knowledge of the above
10Quick setup:
12- Setup a mysql database
13- Run sql/install.sql on that database
14- Extract archive to your webserver's rootdirectory
15- Set permissions so that the user your webserver runs under is allowed to create files in cache/map and cache/portraits.
16- Enable URL file access in your PHP configuration
17- Edit config.php:
19  o KB_HOST should be set to the FQDN your killboard is at, e.g.
20  o Leave KB_SITE as it is
21  o CORP_ID or ALLIANCE_ID should be set to the ID of your corp or alliance.
22  You can lookup the id in the database tables kb3_corps (crp_id) or
23  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.
24  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.
25  o STYLE_URL, COMMON_URL, IMG_URL need to be set correctly. E.g., or This goes for the other 2 as well.
26  o Database credentials go into the DB_HOST, DB_NAME, DB_USER, DB_PASS variables.
28- Remove the sql/ directory from your webroot.
29- Have fun ;)
