    I did a WBB 4.0.6 install on a WAMPSERVER 2.5 and it is running quite well so far. The only problem was during the early part of the intallation when I ran the "test.php" script: the script would give me the "Please wait..." message, then it would just sit there without any progress. After checking all the WAMP components, especially the PHP extensions, I could not find anything missing so I went ahead with the "install.php" and it installed without a fault. :)

    Actually, my biggest problems occured trying to install the WAMPSERVER: I kept getting a "Missing MSVCR110.dll Error" that I could not resolve until I ran the vcredist_64.exe from MicroSoft (I tried solutions offered by others that did not work). Anyway, all is working well and WBB 4.0.6 is looking real good. :thumbup:

    Back in November 2011 when I originally purchased WBB 3.1, I paid extra for a one year upgrade license as I was led to believe that the upgrade would be released relatively soon
    - in less then a year. Here we are, two years later and the upgrade to WBB 4.0 is finally about to be released. I am wondering if the money I already paid for the upgrade license is
    lost, because it took longer then Woltlab estimated to bring WBB 4.0 to market (by more then a year), or will my upgrade license be honored?

    Please retry installation with Beta 7.

    Hey Marcel:
    OK, I gave it a try using Beta 7 and I got exactly the same result: "Undefined index: wbb"
    I am running the mariaDB variant of MySQL, if that might be the cause of the problem. I noticed that it is using wcf 2.0 and I was wondering if I might give
    PostgreSQL a try - I always thought PostgreSQL was a better database than MySQL.

    The problem occurs right after the installation indicates that it is 100% complete.
    The php version is 5.3.17, which works just fine with Wbb 3.1.8, here is some additional information that may help.

    Thanks Rob.

    Attempting to install Wbb4.0 beta 6 on my home system (openSUSE 12.3) and everything goes well until the very end where I get this message:

    where it seems to be trying to access "index.php" as a directory, which it isn't.
    When I go to the referring page the URL information is:

    I'm not sure what to do and I could use a few suggestions. ?(

    Thanks Rob

    Howdy folks:
    Every time I have attempted to download the WBB 4.0 Beta 6, I only get the message: "Could not connect to database."
    I have only attempted this today, August 17/13,using the link in Alexander Ebert's post "Burning Board 4.0 Beta 6 Download," so maybe the
    server is just down and I have very bad timing, or maybe this is a problem others have encountered. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks Rob.

    After a little (OK, a lot) more digging, it turns out that Blackberry has had the SQLite libraries built into their OS since 5.0 and continues to do so.
    There is also a decent app "HandBase" that will probably get ported from the Android OS soon, if it hasn't been already and from what I've seen it
    looks to be exactly what I'm looking for. When it comes to shooting ducks, I prefer a 20mm chain gun myself as the ducks around these parts are
    crafty little bugger that'll turn on you if they smell fear and I never knew real fear until I had to face down a charging duck. 8o

    Hey ST:
    To have the ability to design my own data structures and the relationships between those structures, to suite the task at hand is a very appealing thing as far as I'm concerned.
    Also, the ability to access and and uses the application without having to have an internet connection would be of great benefit as well, especially when a connection isn't
    always possible. Another benefit is not having to wait for someone to develop, or pay someone to develop, what could essentially be a very simple app. Granted, what I proposed
    might be a little over the top, but as far as I can tell there isn't anything available except for what FileMaker is doing; but if there is please let me know because I'd love to hear
    about it. I guess the ideal would be a small RDBMS with a good frontend GUI, but then again I'm not aware of any. And I definitely don't agree that you only use databases for large data sets,
    next you'll be telling me to use a Spreadsheet. :D The thing doen't have to be Oracle on a tablet, but some database capabilities sure would be nice.

    Howdy Folks:
    I got myself a Blackberry Playbook 64GB and I've been having some fun lately, man that QNX OS that BB is using is a fantastic little operating system, I just love it.
    As with most tablets, there is not very much in the way of serious database applications available for the ever hungry consumer market to feast upon, I think FileMaker
    has ported Bento to the iPad and iPhone. This got me to thinking that if there was port of MySQL, Apache, PHP and WCF to Blackberry's QNX OS then that would be a
    killer developer environment for all kinds of database apps (and probably many other apps) on the Blackberry platform. I know that BB is in the process of developing
    phones to use their BB 10 OS (their next generation OS), so their phones and tablets will have a common OS. I thought the size of porting MAPW might be a problem, but
    then some of the games for the Playbook are in the 300 MB range and I don't think a MAPW installation would take up that much room. Not being a Super Techie Geek-Nerd
    myself, I'm not really certain if this idea has any merit, or if it is even doable, but it sure would be nice to have some kind of database capabilities on the tablet platform
    that isn't dependent on me storing my info on someone else's server. Now, would this be possible, or should I put down the Crack Pipe and worry about other things? ;)

    Thanks Guys:
    OK, I think I understand.
    So if I were creating links between the profile/content page of a photograph in the Gallery and posts (or threads) in a forum, then the "permalink" would be a
    good way to do it.

    In the profile/content section, I noticed a difference between the "Link" in the Share box at the bottom right of the page and the permalink:

    Link == http://whatever website/index.php?page=UserGalleryPhoto&photoID=4 
    Permalink == http://whatever website/index.php?page=UserGalleryPhoto&photoID=4#profileContent

    Is the "#profileContent" at the end of the permalink just a comment, or does it have any significance?

    I also couldn't help noticing that all my Links are processed by PHP:

    http://whatever website/index.php?page=UserGalleryPhoto&photoID=4

    (this is also the case with links to forum threads on my system)
    While the ones you list are just a directory path:


    is there a reason for this difference I should be aware of?

    Thanks, Rob

    OK, can somebody please tell me what the "permalink" button (as seen in the upper right corner of just about everything, including this post) is for and what on earth can I do with it?
    Does it have magical properties that I dare not meddle with, or is it there just to be that enigma in the upper right corner that we must all ponder? 8|
    Thanks, Rob

    I hate to disagree Alex, but "every possibility" has "OR" written all over it. :)
    At least it does to my way of thinking and every test I've tried gives me an "AND" result.

    Well.... OK then. Alex just confirmed what I've been saying and this really isn't a technical problem, it's more of a misprint in the Help File.
    And I'll rest much easier knowing this. Now how do I go about correcting the Help File? 8|
