Favicon support in CVS, a quick Howto

To enable favicon support in bbps-cvs, follow this quick how-to:

  • First, of course, checkout bbps from cvs. This is at your own risk! Please be aware of this! CVS software is in beta state at best and can mess up your install!

  • Then, copy the _init.php.org file to _init.php and edit it to suit your needs. Set $CONF_ENABLE_FAVICONS to TRUE and fill in the directory to hold your favicons in $CONF_FAVICON_DIR.

  • If necessary, create the directory filled in above. Be sure that your webserver can write to this directory. Either chown or chmod it to enable this in Linux. Windows surely has means of doing this too ;)

  • Then, and this is important, because you will see no error if you do not do this, but favicon support won't work: edit php.ini. Be sure to set allow_url_fopen to On.

  • Restart your webserver.
You're done. Favicon support will work now, for new bookmarks. Support for favicons for older bookmarks will follow shortly.
