Just a Small Question :

 

how to install a mod on PHPBB ?? XD

 

I am triyng to install reimg_image_resizer_2_0_1 but I am failing bad can't see to make it work

I am not sure what art you are failing at but phpbb mods are as simple as downloading the mod, unzipping it and opening the install.xml file in your browser.  Then you just upload the files to where it tells you and then you copy and paste the sections of code where it tells you. Make sure you do the template edits aswell and clear the cache through the acp.

like it says :

 

 

File copy
  • Copy: root/adm/*.*
  • To: adm/*.*
  •  
  • Copy: root/install_reimg.php
  • To: install_reimg.php 
  • Copy: root/umil/*.*
  • To: umil/*.*
  • Copy: root/styles/*.*
  • To: styles/*.*
  • Copy: root/reimg/*.*
  • To: reimg/*.*
  • Copy: root/language/en/*.*
  • To: language/en/*.*
  • Copy: root/includes/*.*
  • To: includes/*.*

 

does the adm/ *.* mean means to copy whats inside  or just the adm file  ?

You need to upload the directories and the contents.  If the directories already exist, it will just upload the contents.  The quickest way to upload all the files is through FTP using a program lie Filezilla.

It means to copy what's inside.  A single "*" means "everything".  A "*.*" means everything with a name of the form "something-dot-somethingelse".

 

So when it says to copy "root/includes/*.*" into "includes/*.*", it means to move every file from "root/includes" that has a name like "fred.php" or "header.c" or "a.supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" into "includes/" (presumably on your target system.)

 

That "*" is called a "wildcard", and this usage is called "globbing".  See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glob_%28programming%29 for an intro.
