MD5 Version File Generator - Version 1.00

Hack: MD5 Version File generator
Version: v1.00
Author: MarcoH64
vB Version: 3.5.4 and higher (WILL NOT WORK ON LOWER VERSIONS!)

See for the "announcement" of this new function in vB3.5.4: http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showp...9&postcount=16

Description
This Modification is a tool for Hack Coders.

Since vB version 3.5.4 there is an improved File Version checker included as part of the diagnostics. All files in the forumhome directory will be checked if they are know and if the content is not changed.

To do this vBulletin uses a file called ./includes/md5_sums_PRODUCTID.php
This file contains all known files (for the hack the file is written for) and a MD5 hash of the files.

If you don't supply this file, admins will be warned for unknown files in their forumhome directory if you hack upload new files there. To create such a file by hand is not easy, but this hack can do it for you.

How to use:
  • AdminCP->Plugin System->Version File Manager
  • You will see a list of all Products installed on the board.
    Click edit behind your Product and on the next screen, place all files that will be uploaded for your Hack in the text box. Each on their own line, with a absolut path as from the forumhome directory.
  • When you are ready to package and release your product, choose Generate MD5 File from the Dropdown menu.
  • There will now a new file be generated in your includes directory named md5_sums_PRODUCTID.php
  • Include this file in your Product zip-file (upload/includes directory).
    Finished
You must have write access to your ./includes directory!
Not tested on systems with open_basedir restriction.

Example generated file:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

HEhe just a quick job that i started when i saw that post at vb.com.

Couldn't imagine that anybody wanted to create these files manual. :)

Marco van Herwaarden 22 Feb 2006 11:33

Could anyone provide feedback if all work correct on a Mac/Linux client?

Floris 22 Feb 2006 12:14

Probably a user error, but it wasn't working so I replace this line:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

With this:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

That seemed to solve my problem... Is there a reason? Or just user error.

Pls., Help me.

Sorry, I don't have AdminCP->Plugin System->Version File Manager. So I can't click it.

Pls., Help me.

Take the debug="1" out of the navoptions tab. I think that will do it.
