[Tutorial] How to install B3 on windows for dumb !
« on: November 08, 2010, 03:32:21 PM »
Hello ,
here is my small tutorial for install b3 on windows with installer !

Step one :
Install Phpmyadmin & make your DB !


For make a DB , DL wampserver --> http://www.wampserver.com/en/download.php
when you dl it , you launch it , then you do a right clik

you click PHPmyadmin , you should have a webpage which appear,
then :MySQL localhost
Create new database : you put : B3
--> create
 you click on Privileges , --> add new user -->
login information : username : B3
pasword : putapassword
retype : putagainthepassword

Database for user :
you chose ->  Grant all privileges on database "aa"
and you click go

now click Import , and browser b3.sql ( in your B3 folder .. ) --> Go
click again import , and browser xlrstats.sql ( in your B3 folder also ) --> Go

and then you have your DB ..


Step 2 :
Download & install b3 1.4 --> http://www.bigbrotherbot.net/forums/downloads/?sa=view;down=113
When you installed it , go in your folder b3/conf and just edit your B3.xml.distribution and put all info needed .. then rename it the file to b3.xml .
After have done that , install some plugins if you want .. ( you will find them on forums )
And run wamp server , then run b3_run.exe !
And your B3 should be online !

Also note that you have to downlaod python and MySQL Python.

Also, try to install a b3 with a default plugins, and later add one by one.

After you installed your b3, download a Python Package -> http://www.bigbrotherbot.net/forums/downloads/?sa=view;down=4

Than in b3.xml change a options(logs,DB connection,rcon,IP) to your server.

Make sure there is not any mistake and that bot run good.

After that u can start with adding plugins, which in case you dont know how to do u can follow those steps:

  • Download plugin.
  • Put a .py file into b3/extplugins
  • Put a .xml file into b3/extplugins/conf
  • Update your main b3 config file. (You have to add a line in your b3.xml of your plugin.)
  • Restart b3.

If you have some problems, and your b3 stop loading plugins, check your b3.log to find out which plugin make a problems.

NOTE: Note that some plugins have a .sql file.That file you have to import in your DB.The same way u did import a b3.sql.

Not exactly. You need 3 databases (can be done with one xampp install), and you need 3 config files, but you can use one set of files and just change the start up line to point to any config file...

If using the windows installer/zip, no python is needed.
If using the source code then yes, you need python...
