The offical RCP4 install instructions are raising questions on every step i take,
so pls dont link to these geek notes again :p
I think this is about the settings in the servers.xml
Code: Select all
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <servers> <server> <id>1</id> <login></login> <name>My.Server</name> <settingset></settingset> <!-- Pathname without slashes, leave empty for default settings --> <filepath></filepath> <!-- Pathname without slashes, leave empty for default filepath --> <connection> <host>localhost</host> <port>5000</port> <password>SuperAdmin</password> <communitycode>000000</communitycode> </connection> <ftp enabled='false'> <host>localhost</host> <port></port> <!-- leave empty for default port 21 --> <username>username</username> <password>password</password> <path>/GameData/Tracks/</path> </ftp> <sql enabled='false'> <dsn>mysql:dbname=remotecp;host=localhost</dsn> <username>username</username> <password>password</password> </sql> <lists> <guestlist>guestlist.txt</guestlist> <blacklist>blacklist.txt</blacklist> </lists> </server> </servers>
question 2: <settingset>? what path to what settings? and how do you do a path without slashes?
question 3: <filepath> ? what path to what files?
question 4: <connection><host>localhost</host> ? should i change this to my external IP address or keep it localhost for my server on my pc?
question 5: <port>5000</port> I forwarded this port tcp/udp in my router, that is ok i think, so not a question, but not sure :p
question 6: <password>SuperAdmin</password> Is this the password to RCP4 ?
question 7: <communitycode> ? there is only 1 communitycode i know of, so this should be my player code.
question 8: <ftp enabled='false'>? I guess i dont need this if i am using local webserver on my pc?
question 9: <path>/GameData/Tracks/</path> If i keep the ftp disabled, do i need to tell where the tracks are?
my sql is also still disabled. I am pretty sure i wont be using this.
I am running the latest wamp, latest servermania, latest xaseco and some plugins. All running perfect.
When I run the localhost/rcp4 nothing happend, but my RCP4 was installed in C:\wamp\remoteCP_4-0-3-5\remoteCP_4-0-3-5
so when I run "http://localhost/remoteCP_4-0-3-5/remot ... /index.php" I got the install for CP.
I also did change the __live.bat file for the path to my wamp-php, but the last line is raising questions also:
Code: Select all
@echo off rem ****** Set here your php path ******* set INSTPHP=C:\wamp\bin\php\php5.3.4 rem ************************************* PATH=%PATH%;%INSTPHP%;%INSTPHP%\extensions "%INSTPHP%\php.exe" live.php -- 1 http://localhost/ pause
Then when it was done, I logged in as admin with pass admin... I see RCP4 but it returns a notice:
"... [remoteCP Notice] Serverconnection not available! remoteCP turned to offline-mode, this is not a error message!"
So there you go. I think I followed the rules, but i am clueless to the specifics and meaning of some xml tags.
Although I got the server and all plugins installed at one go, this one is breaking my spirit.
Maybe you see my dumbness and maybe you want to help.
Thanks in advance.
