=========================

Note : If you had older version of the bot, delete vbbot.php (or the folder) and replace it by new one.

2. Goto your ACP and go to 'Plugins & Products' and then click on 'Manage Products'

3. In the top box eneter the location of the product-link_bot.xml file on your computer
and then click the 'Import' button.

4. You have just installed the VB Link Checker bot.

5. If you had older version of the bot, delete vbbot.php (or the folder) and replace it by new one.


Setting up and configuring your VB Link Checker
===============================================

1. Create a new user that will be used for your Link Checker Bot. Make sure the bot has
the appropriate permissions for where it will be posting. (ie, VIP/Private forums)

2. Create the forums you will be using for good and bad links if you have not done so already.

3. Goto vBulletin Opions and select the MaxWCoders LinkChecker Bot.

4. All the options/setting are pretty self explanatory and each option has the description
of what the setting are for and do. Refer the the bottow of this Read Me of finding the
correct IDs you will need if you are not sure where to look.

5. Once you have everything set up hit the save button at the bottom.


Security
========
1. For security reasons, it is highly recommended you rename your bot to something else for instance 63454.php

Running your Link Checker Bot
=============================

1. You can run the bot by setting up a Cron job to run at a set time so you will not have to
run it manually. This can be found in your cPannel of your server.

2. You can call it manually by running vbbot.php (ie. http://www.siteurl.com/vbbot.php)

How to find all of your needed IDs.
===================================

How to find your forum ID:
Just goto the forum in question and the URL will look like the one below.

http://www.yourwebsite.com/forumdisplay.php?f=18 <--- The number at the end of the URL
will be the forum ID. In this example
it is 18.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

How to find your user ID
Find the user that is going to be your bot and click on the user name.
Now look at the URL in the address bar. It should look something like the one below

http://www.yourwebsite.com/member.php?u=2 <--- The number at the end of the URL will be
the user ID. In this example the user ID
is 2.

Changelog:
1.0 - 1.1 -> Bug fixes and Product installer

Bugs:

Unfortunately due to time constraints due to exams, I am not able to find the bug fix for the PM bug. Whenever bot tries to PM a certain member with PM disabled, or something similar, it returns a big error. So far only fix for it is, disable PM for that topic and run it again. Maybe after my exams, I can have a better look. Other than that, the new version is just fine

The .txt file will be deleted. Now just run the bot file again and it will restart.

See the authors website which is in the installation file included with the mod.


Hscorp , did you add the mysql tables like the author said to do?

This is the problem I keep getting any one willing to help me?

When i go to this link
http://www.gaminghax.com/forum/exp.BOT/vbbot.php

I get this error

Warning: require_once(/includes/config.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/gamingha/public_html/forum/exp. BOT/vbbot.php on line 28

Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required '/includes/config.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/gamingha/public_html/forum/exp. BOT/vbbot.php on line 28

But when I refresh it it says
Bot is running


All i get is a screen saying bot is running. What do I do next, how do I tell that it's working, were do I go to see if it's working.

Frankthetank 2 .. check your post on MaxWCoders
HSCorp your mysql connection is timing out... tell your server admin to raise it or wait for next version which will auto connect
The person who got curl_init unknown function, curl is not installed.

I have tried to set this so that the bot doesn't recheck the forum where the expired links were already put from a previous scan. However, it still is rechecking all those links - have I set something wrong?

Also, I try running that delete command to remove the botsrun.txt file but it doesn't remove it.

Has anyone come across a problem with PM's from the link checker?

I get this error msg in firefox when accessing my PM's only from the link checker (it's not a vbulletin error)

The page you are trying to view cannot be

shown because it uses an invalid or unsupported form of compression.
Any ideas?

Talked to 3 of my mods & all except for one say the same thing, they get an error when accessing the PM's from LC.

Checking the database & the PM's are their ok.

If you can't get support here i suggest going to their site and getting support that way. With in five minutes of talking to Dman he got my link checker working. Here is their link.

http://www.maxcoders.com

I can't wait for the updates

One question though. What exactly do I do if I want it to check my entire board since I have 1000's of links.

I think I may of found the reason for why I get errors with the pm system & LC but I'm not hot on this stuff & I wouldn't know why my forum use a slightly different way when it comes to this little snippit of code within your php.
