Hello Race,

Can you help me out with installing a mod on my forums? I understand how to install a mod except for one part. Here is what it says.... how do I go about doing this?

The mod is this one [2.0.6] FIND - Forum Integrated News Delivery - Input (http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=130271&start=0&postdays=0&postorder=asc&highlight=)

#
#-----[ SQL ]------------------------------------------
#
# See schemas directory for databases other than mysql
#
CREATE TABLE phpbb_newsfeeds (
feed_id smallint(5) unsigned NOT NULL auto_increment,
forum_id smallint(5) unsigned NOT NULL default '0',
user_id mediumint(8) NOT NULL default '0',
news_url varchar(255) NOT NULL default '',
news_name varchar(60) default NULL,
news_limit smallint(5) unsigned NOT NULL default '0',
news_active tinyint(1) unsigned NOT NULL default '1',
include_channel tinyint(1) unsigned NOT NULL default '1',
include_image tinyint(1) unsigned NOT NULL default '1',
PRIMARY KEY (feed_id),
KEY forum_id (forum_id)
);

Thanks!

I installed Easy Mod which auto installs mods for phpBB. It worked like a dream and installed the mod I was trying to install manually. I have no problem installing most mods. It is the ones that involve sql stuff that I am unsure about. If you know of any tutorials point me in the direction I would like to learn!

Thanks!

You can find these on the phpbb.com Home Support Forum...(I'm still trying to install a mod without messing things up myself!)

Hi jmtravis
you need to go to phpMyadmin in cpanel/MySQL on the left there is a dropdown menu select the database you wish to put the table in, then at the top of the page you will see Structure, SQL, Search, Query, Export, Import and Operations.
Select SQL and paste the text from the table in and click "Go". IMPORTANT, if there is more than one table only do one table at a time.
when done close phpMyadmin.
