    The first and second problem might be related. Have you done a system search for those auth files? If I'm correct the docs say it should be under home folder but I believe debian uses /var/www/ by default without ~user as used by some other systems.

    You probably have crossed this resource also but in case you didn't: the online version of "Version Control with Subversion" (o'reilly) There are some chapters (notably chapter 6) about apache and access control too. http://svnbook.red-bean.com/

    I hate o'reilly, he missinformed me on various subjects over the course of several years that led me to believe otherwise and I got relatively upset for a short perioid of time. That was most unpleasant.

    When you can't get stuff to work, and you've spend a lot of time on it, and it still doesn't work... just leave it, and try to use something else :) Else you'll get frustrated as hell! And for such a simple, clean and small project as Vanilla, you don't have to use high-tech subversion systems... but those are just my thoughts...

    Come on guys. Mark is working overtime to solve some problems to give us the newest release, and all I read are comments that betray a lack of appreciation of it.
  • Options
    That's not true.. We just want to know what problems Mark has so that we can help him :)

    That isn't really fair, for a number of reasons:
    1. If we didn't apprecate the work that has gone into Vanilla, we wouldn't be here; we'd be at some other forum software's site whining about the lack of their updates.
    2. According to what Mark said in the beginning of the thread, 0.9.3 is ready, except for SVN tree problems. As I have said twice before, this is incredibly silly; toss the files in a zip and sort out the version control stuff after you get the rabid Vanillaphiles (me) off your back.
    3. Short of paypalling cash, there really isn't any way other than forum whining to spur Mark's creative spirit.

    I decided to leave the svn problems behind and work on the one last big thing for the next rev: feeds. I've made Atom and RSS2 extensions. Both of them work based on the scope of the page. So, if you run a search on the search page and then click on the Atom or RSS2 button, you get *those* results. The same goes for if you apply filters to the discussion index. It also works on the comments page. It came to me last night when I was trying to think of what else to do to clear my head. It's a pretty slick solution, actually. I'm not a feed-user, so you guys may want to have some different info in some of the fields, but we can work that out after it's released. Anyway. That's done. I'm going to eat some food and then get back on SVN. I had some ideas for how to fix it today while I was working on the feeds.

    Hmm. I only wish i was running apache2 so i could try running through an install myself and then help you along if i got it running. But there's no way i'm switching my web server now.

    No worries, mini. If I can't get svn working tonight, I'll release a zip.

    Is there any upgrade procedures or is it just file edits you've made?

    I'll explain everything when I make it public, but I would not recommend replacing any existing forums with this code yet. There are still a lot of bugs - which is why I wanted to have it on svn - so you could all help with ironing them out quickly. Tonights release will not be a public release - it will be just for us on the community site to test and play with.
