I run a busy rugby forum, but I need to make some changes. I want to install a fresh version of phpbb into another folder, then I want to install all the mods listed below, plus the skins, then I need to switch the local server routing to that folder for that domain when I am happy all is well.
So what I am saying is that I need to install the second installation to run off the same database as the original to allow me to test it, then when happy swithch the domain mapping in my control panel (i will do that).
The mods I want installed are.
seo mod (a2k)
admin enhanced module
input news mod? (there is a mod that allows bot posting)
links directory facility
quote in quote prevention.
These are all mods that are standard phpBB stuff and not to be written by you.
As far as I know, most of these will install with easy mod, so again there is not a massive amount of hand coding. This is bread and butter for anyone who knows PHPbb, and I would also take advice with regard any mods that I have not included, but makes like easier.
