This thread is for all your simple questions about installing and running Wakaba or Kareha, that just require quick answers. Please don't create any more new threads for issues like that, post them in here instead.

Will we ever get new releases of Wakaba and Kareha, even if they're only maintenance/bugfixes?

952 Name: Anonymous : 2007-09-05 08:04 ID:WKhwY+oT [Del]

On a related note, what's the likelihood of that modularized Kareha re-write ever happening?

953 Name: Anonymous : 2007-09-05 20:33 ID:Heaven [Del]

>>952 "Modularized"?

What am I doing wrong if the generated pages stick all the HTML on a line? It was mentioned earlier in the thread (search for "one line") but the reference is vague.

You don't have permission to access .../ on this server.

wth is goin' on?

>>955 That's how the pages are generated. Nothing wrong with it.

Hi there
I downloaded kareha.
How can I set the permissions of the script ( and to 755?
Thank you for reply.

I'm using a Kareha text board and I can't seem to get the Shift_JIS to work. I've changed the setting in the conf and the .htaccess but after it loads the board it stops loading after the first post in the first thread.

Anything I'm missing?

961 Name: Anonymous : 2007-09-15 20:55 ID:Heaven [Del]


Is there a quick fix for this, or is it a feature?

962 Name: Anonymous : 2007-09-15 21:23 ID:Heaven [Del]

>>961 well, it depends on what you're doing. If you're trying to get some text that needs to be on separate lines to work (say, AdWords or somesuch), try saving your include files with windows line endings (open and save them in Notepad or something). If you're doing something more complicated, there's a few lines in that you can comment out, but I can't remember where exactly they are. Waha, you recall the exact lines?

last time i checked the option to not collapse all the HTML it sends is in the config file..

964 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2007-09-16 13:20 ID:Heaven [Del]

Yeah, there's a STRIP_NEWLINES option (or something like that) these days.

965 Name: Anonymous : 2007-09-19 00:06 ID:RwQXjDU+ [Del]

I've tried Googling this, to no avail... I can't think of any more search terms to use, so I decided to ask here(I really hate bugging this board with my stupid questions if I can help it...).

I would like to allow people to create their own board(s) on my site, I'm not sure how feasible this is with Wakaba(the MySQL thing might be a hassle), but perhaps it is possible with Kareha?

If anyone can help me find information on automating script installation/remotely hosting user-created boards I would be most grateful, I am no expert with scripting but wish to offer this to users of my site.

966 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2007-09-19 13:37 ID:Heaven [Del]

If you are not entirely, 100% sure what you are doing, I would strongly recommend against this. There are many, many ways you could fuck up and make it possible for somebody to take over your entire server this way.

I'm going to trust you, I know you have more experience than just about anyone here, so thank you for the warning.

I've never heard of this security issue, it must be why it's so hard to find information on this subject.

Thanks for telling me.

Are there any really simple step by step guides for installing wakaba?

974 Name: !4X8vLLNDE2 : 2007-10-01 07:43 ID:xXN7wkpf [Del]

is not really good enough

That is too bad.

Noob's guide for setting a MysqlDatabase to work with Wakaba? I have made a database and linked the file to it but I still get a "SQL connection failure".

Did you change to some strange incompatible mysql version?


You are trying to use IIS. You're on your own for that one, I have zero experience with it.

981 Name: Jesus : 2007-10-06 12:52 ID:r31Ibqtg [Del]

I think I can fix the problem, I just need to know what windows .dll processes html files. Anybody know off the top of your head, Google searches so far all want me to download shit I don't need.

Alright, i got it to process my html with a http.dll whatever, but now I get a

HTTP/1.1 501 Not Implemented

Whenever I try to post. When I executed only 1 file came out of it, wakaba.html. Is there supposed to be more?

983 Name: Jesus : 2007-10-06 14:42 ID:r31Ibqtg [Del]


Finally got all the verbs to enable using URLscan, but now theres a

>>981-983 the solution is to install apache. It's free. It's better than IIS.

985 Name: Anonymous : 2007-10-06 19:09 ID:Heaven [Del]


and no i have not changed to some strange version of mysql. i am on dreamhost.

986 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2007-10-07 09:44 ID:Z0T+84ak [Del]


Try asking the Dreamhost people about it, first.

Well, I'll just not and tell you what their response would be. "We do not give support for any third party software."

Is there a changelog for wakaba? I have an older version of wakaba, and I'm wondering if it's really worth my while upgrading.

989 Name: Anonymous : 2007-10-07 16:55 ID:Heaven [Del]

what's your URL so i can exploit your bugs.

I've been messing with Kareha for use as a blog, and well, I'd like to hide all replies to a thread.
Unfortunately setting REPLIES_PER_THREAD to 0, just gives no limit to the amount of replies shown.

Any suggestions?

991 Name: Anonymous : 2007-10-09 16:38 ID:Heaven [Del]

'hack' the replies out of the page template.

992 Name: Anonymous : 2007-10-09 17:00 ID:Heaven [Del]

I tried that. It seems that the first post is considered a reply as well. (unless I screwed something up...)

993 Name: Anonymous : 2007-10-09 19:18 ID:Heaven [Del]

crazy. i'm kinda busy atm and i haven't hacked up kareha as much as i have wakaba so i don't have an answer for ya off hand.

994 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2007-10-10 04:58 ID:Heaven [Del]

I had a setup like that once, but I've totally forgotten how I did it. You could just use a big <if> statement in the replies loop to only display reply 1, I guess.

995 Name: Kizu : 2007-10-10 11:25 ID:fx+LBL8r [Del]

Since there's almost one thousand posts in here, HOW do I configure the options in when there are NONE IN IT? \o.o/ All it contains is below:

print <<END
Content-Type: text/html

<head><title>Unconfigured board</title></head>

<h1>This board has not been configured yet.</h1>
<h3>Things you need to do to get the board running:</h3>

<li>Choose what kind of board this should be, and copy the files out of the corresponding
<code>mode_*</code> directory into the board directory.</li>
<li>Edit <code></code> to suit your needs - remember to uncomment the lines
you change.</li>
<li>Access <code></code> again (or just reload this page).</li>

exit 0;

Perhaps you should read the instructions you just posted again.

OHHHHH. smacks head Okay, I get it now, thanks. :D I guess I just misunderstood it a bit. I get it now! :)
