HowTo Set Up PHP Nuke (a quick guide)

This is more of a technical FYI, not really a practical guide for server users :-). Well, actually, I suppose everything except for the mysql commands could be performed by users, the rest needs to be granted by root.

      mkdir phpnuke
      cd phpnuke/
      tar -zxvf ../PHP-Nuke-6.8.tar.gz
      cd html/
      cp -rp * /www/docs/
      cd ..
      mysqladmin -p -u root create mynuke
      mysql -p -u root mynuke < sql/nuke.sql
      mysql -p -u root
        USE mysql;
        GRANT SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE, CREATE, DROP ON mynuke.* TO mynuke@localhost IDENTIFIED BY ‘mypass’;
      cd /www/docs/
      vi config.php
      ### Change the following
      $dbuname = “mynuke”;
      $dbpass = “mypass”;
      $dbname = “mynuke”;
Open and set the super user info.

Peruse and customize!

FrontPage Extensions

I hate FrontPage yes I do, I hate FrontPage and so should you.

On that note, after 5+ hours of installing, troubleshooting, and testing, FrontPage extensions are now installed on the server. For now, it’s just installed on, but I can quickly install it on other sites on request, and I plan to install them on all sites by default.

Oh, and FYI, this site was NOT created using FrontPage OR .Net ;-)

The website has changed. Please make a note of it.

I’ve changed my site. Can you tell?

I’ve installed the PHP-Nuke engine, which will make it easier to share server-related information with the anyone using the server. It also makes it easier for me to keep things fresh.

Just in case you wanted to see the old site, you can find it here.
