  • The right path is the full path to you config.php
    In example in my blog is somethink like that:
    /home/public_html/phpBB3/config.php

    in your case may is somethink like that
    /home/public_html/forum/config.php

    but I can’t be sure about your server a I don’t know the configuration of your server.

    If you are not sure what is the full path to your phpBB3 then create a file “ie: mypath.php” into the folder phpBB3 and enter the following code in it:

    echo $_SERVER['SCRIPT_FILENAME'];

    The above code will return to you the full path to phpBB3 + the file name “mypath.php”. Replace the “mypath.php” with the “config.php” and then copy all that path to use it in the plugin configuration.

    Hope this help you 🙂

    Thank you for the reply

    I’ve tried that little trick but when the mypath file loads, it simply loads the code you included – I even tried viewing the source of the page and the same thing appears…

    Hmmm…

    You see i’ve tried a lot of the different paths like:

    /forum/config.php
    http://www.website.com/forum/config.php
    /../../config.php

    and so on…

    in the file that you created you wrote:
    <?php

    echo $_SERVER[‘SCRIPT_FILENAME’];

    ?>

    Cool! Thanks icemax!

    It worked, but only when I placed the file in the root of the wordpress installation – I had it in the forum

    Although, when I activated the plugin the site crashed, I get a 500 error 🙁

    Does anyone else get this?
