[HowTo] More languages for your Vanilla*
First sorry for my poor english.
I was surfing in internet when I saw a webpage with URL like this:
www.example.com is english
www.example.com/de/ is german
www.example.com/cn/ is chinese
www.example.com/fr/ is french
I asked me if this is working for vanilla too.
The answer is: YES
I don't know if you allready know how it's woking but i didn't found nothing about this.
How to do it:
!!!FIRST MAKE SURE YOU MADE A BACKUP OF YOUR MYSQL AND FTP!!!
Make a folder on your server. For me it was ../board/de/
Upload the same version of vanilla what you are using in your main forum.
It should be NOT INSTALLED!
Install vanilla in a new Mysql database.
Ok now coming to the dificult part. Open your FTP backup and upload following folders:
applications conf library locales plugins themes uploads
Upload your locale files.
If you want the german language:
unzip the locale upload the folder "german" to "www/de/locales" go to "www/de/applications/dashboard/locale" create a new folder called "de-DE" upload the "definitions.php" file Go to your dashboard, enable the locale and set language to de-DE.
It should work.
