Post Icy Phoenix 2.0 Beta 1 
 
Hi all,
I'm glad to announce that Icy Phoenix 2.0 Beta 1 is available for downloads.

What's New Respect To Latest Stable Release

  • CMS recoded with many AJAX features
  • Plugins System with ACP modules and specific permissions that could be managed through CMS
  • Cache Functions ported from phpBB 3
  • DB Class ported from phpBB 3
  • User Class ported from phpBB 3
  • Auth System ported from phpBB 3 and integrated into CMS and Plugins
  • Many Core Functions ported from phpBB 3
  • Almost all core SQL checked and rewritten
  • New classes coded to improve useability and simplify coding and modding
  • Optimized templates parsing
  • Improved SEO functions
  • Tags feature
  • Custom BBCodes in ACP
  • Private AJAX Chat rooms
  • Multiple Vote Polls
  • Many smaller updates and features... install the latest version to enjoy them all!


Old templates: please note that the template system has been totally revamped, so templates designed for Icy Phoenix 1.3.0.53 or below won't work at all with this version. At the moment apart of the styles included in the installation package only proSilver is available over GIT: Icy Phoenix Styles @ GIT.


Translations: please note that lang packs for Icy Phoenix 1.3.0.53 won't work with this version. Lang packs need to be updated before you can use them on your site. I will update all lang files in download section as soon as translators will send me their latest release. You can find latest development translations here: Icy Phoenix Languages @ GIT.


Customizations And Mods: please note that this version has many core code differences from the previous one, so it is really unlikely that old customizations and mods will work on this beta release. If you currently have some mods installed and you cannot update them on your own, you should be aware that you will not able to use those old mods until someone is going to update them.


Requirements
Before trying to install Icy Phoenix make sure you have the following STRICTLY NEEDED requirements:
  • At least 20 MB of free space in the folder you would like to install the package
  • Web server with PHP (5.2 or higher) installed and running (works best on Linux + Apache)
  • MySQL (5 or higher) database with at least 5MB of free space (of course the space needed depends on how big your site will be... 5MB is enough for a basic empty setup)
  • Ability to set CHMOD permissions

These other requirements (even if not strictly needed) are suggested for optimal performance of Icy Phoenix:
  • Webserver with .htaccess capability
  • Apache Rewrite Mod installed and running
  • GD Libraries (at least 2.0.28) installed and running
  • Register Globals set to OFF



Fresh Installation
  1. Unpack Icy Phoenix package to one folder on your HD.
  2. Copy all Icy Phoenix files in one folder on your webserver (i.e. /icyphoenix/)
  3. Set the permissions to CHMOD 777 to the following files and folders (please note that you may not have all of them in your setup):
    • backup/
    • cache/
    • cache/cms/
    • cache/forums/
    • cache/posts/
    • cache/sql/
    • cache/topics/
    • cache/users/
    • downloads/
    • files/
    • files/album/
    • files/album/cache/
    • files/album/med_cache/
    • files/album/users/
    • files/album/wm_cache/
    • files/posted_images/
    • files/screenshots/
    • files/thumbs/
    • images/avatars/
    • logs/

    • logs/logfile_debug_mode.txt
    • logs/logfile_malformed_logins.txt
    • logs/logfile_spammer.txt
    • logs/logfile_worms.txt

  4. Launch the setup from the install folder: install/install.php (i.e. http://www.mysite.com/forum/install/install.php)
  5. Follow all the instructions on the screen, fill all requested data and complete the setup
  6. Delete or rename install folder
  7. Customize what needs to be customized in files and db (some files needs to be edited manually, while most of the options may be set in ACP and CMS)
  8. Enjoy your New Site



How To Upgrade From Older Icy Phoenix Versions
  1. Lock the site from ACP
  2. Make a full backup of your website (both files and DB)
  3. Remove all old Icy Phoenix files, but make sure you are not deleting other stuff you may need!
  4. When deleting files, pay particular attention to custom files and folders like these:
    • config.php
    • backup/
    • downloads/
    • images/
    • files/
    • logs/

  5. Copy all new Icy Phoenix files into your root
  6. Make sure you apply the right CHMOD permissions as listed in the Fresh Installation section above
  7. Copy install/convert_utf8_nodbal.php to your website root and launch it (this is needed to convert your old DB to UTF-8)
  8. Delete convert_utf8_nodbal.php from your root
  9. Launch install/database_update.php and update your DB
  10. Delete or rename install folder
  11. Customize what needs to be customized in files and db (some files needs to be edited manually, while most of the options may be set in ACP and CMS)
  12. Enjoy your New Site

I have just updated the package with two files that I replaced by mistake before uploading.

If you downloaded the package before 11 AM GMT this morning (2011/10/06), it is better than you download it again.

I'm sorry for that.

Thanks MG, you are great!  

I will try it and start translating as soon as I can!

Well, I have a simple question: Does it support UTF-8 in language files?

Yes it does. Be sure to use UTF8 WITHOUT BOM.

I have already edited many files from the release, attempting to solve some issues with sessions and charset.

As soon as I finish testing the new code I will update the beta release again.
