Question: How do I manually install Pligg on my server?
Answer: provided by jhawkin 277 days ago
- 1 + If you'll unzip the file you should find a Readme.html in the zip. Read that with your web browser then print the page.

You'll need to upload the contents of the zip to your server's root directory or a sub folder (your choice).

Then work your way through the printout you made earlier.

But you might want to check and see if your host has a one button install of Pligg Available. That usually is fast and painless if available.

Question: How do I manually install Pligg on my server?

- 0 + If you FTP upload them (or use a file manager if your Hosting Control Panel offers one) you should be able to 'rename' the file from file.name.default to file.name. They just want you to remove the word default and the leading '.' from the file name.

Further along in the install the 'troubleshooter app' will fuss at you if you mess up the file name and the chmod settings for the files and directories. If you'll follow along in the instructions you'll avoid a lot of 'going back to fix problems' with the troubleshooter.

That's why I recommend you print out the readme file from your browser. You can write on it and cross off or checkmark stuff.

Question: API for Mobile app development
Answer: provided by jhawkin 279 days ago
- 0 + Well, there is a rudimentary API in Pligg that you might use to build a mobile APP around.

Look under Libs/API.

The API is off by default but instructions on enabling is in the installation text file.

The API may need some tweaking and extending but it's a start.

Question: How can i build a module?

- 0 + Try this link (actually Pedro's original link but the added text after the link caused Pligg to clobber the link slightly).

Question: all users and link became spam
Answer: provided by jhawkin 280 days ago
- 0 + Create a brand new user you can login as.

You'll need an email address that your Pligg doesn't have anyone 'registered as' already.

Login/out a couple times to test.

Use Your PHPMyAdmin to set this new user to god (version 1.2.x) or admin (version 2.x) depending on Your Pligg version.

Login and go to user management to fix any users that were set to 'spammer' accidentally. Remember to 'Enable' those users again after resetting their user level.

Go to story management and recover your stories that were set to Spam and/or discarded.

Question: Pligg 2.1 shows blank page after submitting story
Answer: provided by jhawkin 282 days ago
- 0 + Let me see.... the page is blank but you see "Welcome to Pligg cms..."? Where are you seeing this??

Cpanel probably has nothing to do with the problem.

When posts go to discard........Sounds like a setting in config. Look at Require a URL set that to false or no or whatever and try it. Also look at the spam trigger related settings. If nothing else reload the whole 'Pligg' App again.

The blank page worries me but I think that is a symtom of the posts going to discard.

How are you getting to admin?? From the Blank Page? Typing in the whole admin URL?

Question: warning: set_time
Answer: provided by jhawkin 284 days ago
- 0 + Why would you close a Pligg Powered site because your host won't support you?

Web Hosts are a dime a dozen. Service is usually the difference. And this one ain't delivering. I'd be switching hosts and demanding a refund.
