V3: config.php vs config_extended.php files

Postby Dragonrider » 1:57pm, Thu 30 Jan, 2014

Some thing that is not made abundantly clear, going from the number of times the same question is asked, is that when setting up Version 3 of phpList, the program expects to find config.php file in the config directory.

From version 3.0.4 there are two copies of the config.php file available.

The first, config.php, is the minimum configuration needed by phpList, so basically it's a quick start option.
You still need to set your database info there as well as the bounce email settings.

The config-extended.php file contains pretty much everything that you can tweak in phpList. To use this file you need either copy its contents (or just a section that you find you need to customize) into config.php or copy it over config.php (IE: Rename it as config.php). Admittedly, this has not been made that clear.

It is all explained in this topic (Configuration Resources):

Latest phpList version is now 3.0.12 (3 February 2015) and requires a minimum of MySQL 5.0 and PHP 5.3.x
