I'm installing using the guide.

I don't know what settings to give the flaskbb.cfg configuration file:

  1. Path to save: (left blank)
  2. Server name: localhost
  3. HTTPS?: n
  4. Postgres/SQLAlchemy: (left blank)
  5. Use redis?: n
  6. Mail server: localhost
  7. SMTP Port: 25
  8. TLS for sending mail?: N
  9. SSL for sending mail?: N
  10. Mail username: (left blank)
  11. Mail password: (left blank)
  12. Mail sender name: (left blank)
  13. Mail sender address: (left blank)
  14. Mail admin email: (left blank)
  15. Logging Config Path: (left blank)

With these settings I then install from the config and run. I receive these messages from the terminal:

Accessing localhost:5000 I only get this and the following messages from the terminal:

Thanks in advance, I'm a bit of a newbie!

Hello Admin! Thank you for replying!

I am struggling with:

1) how to make changes to .py files?
e.g. if I change /flaskbb/fixtures/settings.py
how do I migrate those changes?

Thank you in advance!

man why do the css files have to be one giant wall of text 🤣

I cleaned up the default styles.css for others to use:

edit by sh4nks: use gist.github.com or something similar for pasting such files.
