What to do?
« on: January 17, 2006, 03:47:11 pm »

Hello everyone...

I just came across this software and really think I will enjoy using it.  My question is should I go ahead and install v1.3, or should I wait for the v1.4?  I thought I saw some where that it was going to be released soon... Thanks  :D

Welcome bran0923!

You should download the v1.4 - http://www.solucija.com/snews/download/testing2.zip and install it. Later when the final version comes out you'll just have to copy the snews.php file.

Luka...

Thanks for the link.  

Umm...i'm such a newbie with SQL...

For some reason I can't get it to connect.  Can someone take a look and see what i'm doing wrong?

$s['username'] = md5("test"); // Enter your administration username
$s['password'] = md5("test"); // Enter your administration password

$s['dbhost'] = "localhost"; // MySQL host
$s['dbname'] = "brandonn_snews"; // Database name
$s['dbuname'] = "brandonn_user"; // Database Username
$s['dbpass'] = "user"; // Database password
$s['dberror'] = "Error while connecting to the database!"; // Database error message
$s['prefix'] = ""; // Table prefix for multiple sNews systems on one database (if you don't need it just leave it blank)

I set my new DB up as brandonn_snews and created a user called brandonn_user.  I left host alone.  I also created my tables in the DB without any problems.  I'm I forgeting to do something?    ???

from what I can see I imagine you are using cpanel to do the mysql database right? :)

in any case what you have to do is almost the same in most servers...
create the database (brandonn_snews), create a user and password (or use an existing one)...
(if you are using cpanel then you'll have to assign a user to the database..

after that go to your phpMyAdmin and run the mysql query from the readme.txt ^_^

the stuff you've written seem fine to me! o_O
