Hello all, I have uploaded SMF using joomla by simply going into my admin/installers/components and uploading & installing from a zip folder called com_smf_2_0_2 and then in joomla admin. I come to a page in the joomla admin that says [Joomla-SMF Forum Installation] followed by...

          Forum URL [                                                  ]

SMF Absolute Path [                                                  ]

  SMF Table Prefix [                                                  ]


I am stuck at this point and confused as to how i go about this, where do i even begin to find the answer to this when i hover my cursor over the text FOR EXAMPLE: SMF Absolute Path , it tells me what to do but i am still a bit confused due to the fact that i am fairly new to joomla can someone please help me, and show me a few examples even perhaps illustrated samples if possible, anything would help... thank you...

When installing SMF, you need to enter the database. This needs to be the same as the Joomla database. As for the absolute path. Check configuration.php in the root of your Joomla! website. This also has a few absolute paths, use this as the base and you can easily find out the absolute path of your SMF install.

Hello.

Just getting ready to install SMF into my Joomla site. I realize that this post is over 30 days but it seems to pertain to the question I have.

If i'm using the same database as joomla, do I need to create a new database user name and password or will it be alright to use the same user name and password that joomla uses?

You can do both, the easiest is to just use the same user for SMF.

For the Joomlahacks Bridge You have to use the same Database. (separate databases are in the road map)

Ortio’s bridge you can use in separate databases

When you do some search at the forums you will find all the necessary info ;)
