any help on this cant get the arcade to install

Dave

Hi Vincent,

It's possible that it wont install as you have it in a 'temp' folder within the Packages directory. All mods should be directly in the packages directory or the database doesn't know where to look for them

Omg ty for replying I will try that but the zip is in the package folder should i unzip it first and place it in the package folder ???

Vincent Titus

I think it's because there's a dash in the data base name and that's created by my host provider and I can't change it

Vincent Titus

What I need is the a sql file for the whole arcade database install and I could install it manually

Dave

What you need to do is remove the zip file from the 'Packages' folder first. Then go to 'Admin► Package Manager► Add Packages' then use the 'Choose File' button and go to where the zip file is stored on your PC click on the zip file and click on 'Upload' to add the zip file.

Once the file has been added the window will change and then all you need to do is to click on 'Install Mod' and that should install the mod for you. If you see any install errors in red that means that you have to edit thse templates/files manually.

The underscore in your database's tables/name will make no difference to the install of the mods, if you have a working SMF site then it proves that these are OK.

I hope that helps

yes i know but this happenes


Vincent Titus

i can get to the last step then get the error when i click install

Vincent Titus

i think because of the - ( dash ) in the database name in the database.php file the $database_name or something needs to be in quots  because the dash is a special character

Dave

Hmmm...I still don't know why it's showing the file in a temp folder within the Packages folder.

I'm sorry Vincent I really can't help any more

You could do me a favor you have a test site correct and if so, could you install SF 2.1 and then install the arcade the newest version I guess and then once it's all installed, can you export the database for the whole thing and post it here and I'll make the necessary changes for my site and then upload the SQL Database

Dave

Here you go Vincent, see how you get on with this
