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:

When you click on the diagnostic tool and suspect version, the files that you have done this too should no longer show up as suspect. If it isn't doing what it is supposed to it will say that they don't contain the expected contents.

That seemed to solve my problem... Is there a reason? Or just user error.
Thanks very much for your mod. :banana:

And that still gives you a valid MD5?

If you don't tell what was not working, i can't fix it.

I'm an idiot. Sorry about that and sorry that I didn't respond sooner, when I would run the md5 generator on the files, then go back to the diagnostic tools it would say that the file did not contain the expected content. So what I did was go into the code in vbulletin and grab the function that they were using and it seemed to work, like I said it very likely could be user error but it didn't seem to create an md5 hash that matched what vbulletin would get. Sorry about the lack of explanation, I hate it when people do that
