Ok I think it's fine

Good enough that I can shut down the phpbb forum and get going with the YaBB

Good feedback from the members on the new Board by the Way

Thanks

Dave

I hope it goes well. If it doesn't, just remember that I will be working on a new version in a little while, and I greatly appreciate any bug reports that can be given.

$scripturl is still wrong. Unlike the rest, it's a URL, not a path. This should work:
Code
Select All
$scripturl = 'converter.pl';

Smiley Well we made some progress

www.theblackwatch.org/converter.pl

program starts now, but after selecting phpBB to YaBB and clicking on Convert
all I get is a blank page


Here is my converter.pl setup now

$basedir = '/home/theblack/public_html';
$basedir =~ s~\/converter\.pl\Z~~;

# Set the paths. We'll guess at them.
$inputdir = "$basedir/Input";
$outputdir = "$basedir/Output";
$workdir = "$basedir/Work";
$convertdir = "$basedir/Convert";
$converteddir = "$basedir/Converted";
$scripturl = 'http://home/theblack/public_html';

The file runs from within the public_html directory fine,

Do you have to do anything with the input and output pl files, other than set permissions ?

I can't do anything from the converter with regards to paths.

Try setting $basedir to "/home/theblack/public_html/"
Set $scripturl to "converter.pl" (this one should always work)

I tried this ,still no luck

$basedir = '/home/theblack/cgi-bin/converter';
$basedir =~ s~\/converter\.pl\Z~~;

# Set the paths. We'll guess at them.
$inputdir = "$basedir/Input";
$outputdir = "$basedir/Output";
$workdir = "$basedir/Work";
$convertdir = "$basedir/Convert";
$converteddir = "$basedir/Converted";
$scripturl = 'http://home/theblack/cgi-bin/converter/converter.pl';

just for the heck of it I created teh converter folder inside the cgi-bin directory so it looks like this


/ public_html / cgi-bin / converter / (Current Folder)    

Convert  777
Converted  777
Input  777
Modules  777
Output  777
Work  777
Create New File  
Fleximal.pm 14 k 0776
converter.pl 21 k 0777
readme.txt 2 k 0644

I went into each sub folder and set permissions to 776

Use "/home/theblack/cgi-bin/converter" or "/home/theblack/htdocs/converter". Replace "converter" with the converter's directory name.

Yes I tried the default converter.pl it did not work

I tried changing the

$basedir to '.'

and to

$basedir = '/path/to/converter.pl';

neither worked as well

So I tried this to no avasil

$basedir = '/cgi-bin/l';
