The FUDforum FAQ:


Installation FAQs

I've downloaded the installer and only see install.php, where is the files?

Install.php is like a self-extracting archive that contains all the files that you need within itself. Just run it (from your browser) and it will unpack all required files.

What's the difference between the zlib and the non-zlib versions?

The zlib files are compressed, hence smaller to download. For details, see

Troubleshooting FAQs

FUDforum shows a blank screen. What now?

When you browse your FUDforum site and you get a blank page, it usually means that an error occured, but PHP is configured not to display it.

  • Open your webserver's error logfile file (error_log for Apache) for details of the error.
  • To display errors on-screen, edit your forum's "index.php" file (or the script that causes the error) and add the following to the top (after the <?php tag):
ini_set('display_errors', '1');
