Default php-nuke installer... how to do it?

I wanto to do an installer for php-nuke. What would be the best way to accomplish this? Using the form designer? Are there any manuals I could look at? The designer only allows php scripts or can I program a python script also?
Many thanks for your help

I personally think php-nuke has started to fall behind the curve. Might want to take a look at joomla, xoops, drupal, or many of the other really nice cms's available. If i am correct falko even has made one.

Yes, but I've never published it. It was made for a few of my customers, but I'm now working with Typo3 - it has a large community and therefore lots of features that my CMS has not...

But I think it would be very similar to install php-nuke or any other CMS would it?
I was thinking in the form designer, but I dont know about that. Are there any manuals about form designer out there?

Do you mean Typo3? Yes, I think so, though I've never installed php-nuke.

The form designer was created by Till. I don't think there's a manual out there as the form designer is meant primarily for the developers of ISPConfig...

There is currently no manual for the form designer.

The ISPConfig form designer is mostly for writing dabase driven forms to store information in the database. I think it is not suitable for an installer. Maybe you shall have a look on the ispconfig update installer. You may extend it to support installations to website directories so even custom installations of the phpmyadmin and webmail package might be possible.

A short documentation on the installer file format can be found here.

But the update installer cannot be used by "clients"... I was thinking about adding something in the "tools" section, but I dont know what files should I begin th study. How is the tree menu created? where can I find that... and how does it read the tools available?
Thanks......

I know that. But you might extend it so that the update installer can be used by clients too, as the update packages conatain a {ROOT} variable. This variable is normally set to the ome of the adm42go user. But if it will be set to the root of the client website, the installer might be used for this too.

/home/admispconfig/ispconfig/web/tools/inhalt_tree.php

(inhalt is the german word for content, so thefilename means content_tree

Every tool is a subdirectory of:

/home/admispconfig/ispconfig/web/tools/tools/

Each of these subdirectories contains a nav.inc.php file, which contains the code for the tree menu items of this tool. The best way to learn more about programing ISPConfig tools is, to have a look at the tools sources. They are not very complicated. The simplest is the "version" tool for showing the current version number.

Maybe you consider to join the ispconfig development team, then we can discuss these things in the devel forums.
