Shannon,

I'm in the same situation. Hoping to get DBManSQL working "quickly" and then go to version two with rewrites.

I'm finding the same thing, I have many mods and many config files. All my questions so far have gone unanswered. So, I'm truding through the code one line at a time.

First - make sure you have a working version of DBManSQL in it's default version on your website (This makes sure your site is ok with the code that DBman supplies which should work)

Then, I took each of the new files, .cfg, .cgi, .pl etc and compared them to my highly modified versions.

I have a little shareware program called Compare It! which lets you put the two files on screen side by side and see the differences as well as moving test from one file to the other.

Anyway, I tried to merge these two files and couldn't,

Now I'm moving my mod data over one line at a time. Very Tedious! But I need to see what is causing DBManSQL to give me that Server performed an internal error message.

I think the auth.pl is pretty easy to match to the SQL version, the .cfg file if you only have one, should go quickly too, unfortunately I have 6 db's and 6 .cfg files and figuring that all out will take a while.

From what I've read, the html.pl file shouldn't need many changes (unless like me you have multiple ones of those as well -- I have 6)

and where I'm seeing the most differences (not just added code sections from the mods) is in the DB.CGI.

You aren't writing to flat files but to SQL tables so wherever there is a table read, write, open or close you will have changes to the code. Also calling fields is different look carefully for each of those differences.

I haven't found a faster way, yet. I hope this helps you and I hope someone else will post something more helpful for BOTH of us SOON!
